Take inspiration from new holiday nail colours

When you escape the office for a summer holiday it’s time to leave behind some of the things that remind you of home. That includes the dreary colours that dominate your looks in Winter. It’s time to ditch the deep reds and greens that have defined your nails.

Embracing a new look is just one way to engage a positive mindset going into a holiday. An easy way to get into holiday mode is to change up the colours of your nails. We call them holiday nail colours. They’re bright, cheerful, and a joyful way to embrace the good times ahead.

Different destinations can inspire a new nail colour palette. The pastel colours of the towns in Italy’s Cinque Terre are sublime. So are the deep ocean blues you find surrounding the island of Mykonos. For a more vivid colour palette, think of the vivid colours that adorn the streets of Morocco.

Just like the memories of your favourite vacations, there’s no reason why you can’t take these colour palettes with you when you come back home. A simple update of your nail’s colours and patterns can bring back a memory, a vibe, that feeling that takes right back to your last holiday.

To inspire your next nail look, we’re covering some of our favourite holiday nail colours. We’re taking inspiration from holiday destinations from around the world.

Italian beach holiday

Italian beach holiday

  • Sunshine Yellow
  • Pink Flamingo
  • Aperol Spritz

Say ciao bella, to these gorgeous colours that can be reminiscent of the coastal towns of Cinque Terre. Perched high above the cliffs of this town are the iconic village homes you’ve seen on many Pinterest boards and postcards. These vibrant colours can form a stunning combination for your nail palette.

Colours like our Aperol Spritz and Sunshine Yellow can help reflect your sunny disposition. Use this destination to inspire your holiday nail colours whether you’re off to a beach holiday in Sorrento, Italy or Victoria.

Mesmerising Mykonos

Mesmerising Mykonos

  • Saint Tropez
  • Maldives
  • White Lily

Dreaming of a summer vacation in Mykonos? The crisp whites and the deep ocean blues can be a subtle reminder of what life is like by the mediterranean sea. The Greek island of Mykonos is at the top of many holiday destinations when people dream of a relaxed island getaway. The shades of blue you’ll find on many doors and windows reflect the same hues that locals see when they peer into the ocean.

Colours from our Beach Hut Collection are the perfect antidote for your Winter blues. Apply individually or even a combination of our Saint Tropez or Maldives shades to embrace a more relaxed coastal vibe that many of the Mykonos locals share.

Parisian flair

Parisian flair

  • Angel dust
  • Ballerina
  • Cornflower

A walk through the streets of Paris is sure to inspire many emotions. The iconic city is well known for its cafe culture, sense of fashion, and fine food. Visit a local church or the louvre (a former palace) and you’ll be reminded of the city’s opulent past with hallways and ceilings adorned with gold. Just one of the reasons why we recommend our gold Angel Dust dip powder

In Paris, pink is referred to as rose. Many Parisians are familiar with the line “La vie en rose” which roughly translates to “life through rose-tinted glasses”. It’s another way of saying that one always looks at the bright side of things. It’s a wonderful point of view to have and one to remember as you look down at your nails painted in Ballerina Pink. So for your next set of holiday nail colours why not take a trip to Paris?
