Rose Quartz and White – The Dual Mani

 

My latest Powder mani uses this years pantone, Rose Quartz with classic white, presenting a dual mani where the two shades start from either side and join in the middle.

The trend from a two-tone, dual accent nail or featured on every digit is big news for spring 2016 especially in romantic pastel tones, and yet the two hues worn in this way, redefine the classic French manicure and offer up an edgy yet playful way to wear pastels.

FullSizeRender-18

Carry the edgy pastel look into your outfit by teaming pastels with denim, stripes or neutrals  – such as grey, white and nude.  Combine with nude or pastel orange stack heels and a patterned or metallic giant clutch bag.

High Shine Metallics for Spring

IMG_4975-2

The festive season is already a long, distant memory but that doesn’t mean the shine and sparkle has to end too.  In fact, metallics and high shine fashion and beauty are in vogue for spring 2016.

From panels on your trainers and glittery sliders to irridescent tote bags, metallic jackets and high shine brogues – fashion has a sparkle.

It doesn’t stop there either since beauty is profiling the use of glitter along the hairline for a playful going-out look, glittery shadows across your lids and liner and a touch of two-tone shimmer in your lipstick.

Of course, nails go all futuristic too and my latest gel manicure captures the look perfectly.  With a subtle sparkle, this mink-meets-metallic hue is ideal for everyday wear and offers grown up glamour.
