Guys, I am so feeling blue nails at the moment. For work reasons (and out of interest) I follow the New York / London / Paris Fashion Weeks and what stood out this year in beauty was the focus on blue, both for the eyes and nails. It’s a look that translates really well to the high street, which is why we’re seeing such a tsunami of fab blue-hued shades on the shelves of Clicks, Dischem, Woolies beauty counters, Edgars, Stuttafords, MAC and your other favourite beauty haunts. We’re talking from teal to cobalt to deep, rock star navy with electric undertones. Avoid the lighter, more powdery blues though. I bought two amazing blues this week from The Body Shop who have a really funky range of colours. Brides might want to add a bit of sparkle, but for everyday wear keep it urban, strong and modern.
