Pantone’s official 2017 trend colors include “Kale” and “Greenery”. They conquer our wardrobe in spring and summer and ensure a fresh and positive appearance. The same colors are also on the nails. Greenery combines well with light gray, white, beige or dark blue. If the new shade of green is too bright for you and does not necessarily appeal to your taste, you’d better stick to the green nuance “Kale,” which means “kale” in German, and this year is a trend color. It looks especially good with white, pink or orange.
Summer color blue
In the summer of 2017, one of the currentthe blue. Especially colorful and blue-green shades, such as turquoise green and azure, but also gray-blue are a true all-rounder. However, the blue does not match every skin tone. Ladies with very light skin should resort to darker shades. Too bright tones make the hands look pale and sickly soon. A deep blue with a light texture reminiscent of ocean and sand, making it a perfect nail design for the summer holiday.
Brash red and Electric Orange
The perfect nail polish for the spring and summer should be noticeable and provide good mood. Brash red and Electric Orange is definitely the choice of extrovert personalities. In contrast to the classic red is set here on a high orange share. Whether the paint color is appropriate for everyday life, it usually depends on how it is combined with the clothing. An example: A dress with small, red flowers is perfectly complemented by red fingernails. To a washed-out jeans, a red manicure sets an irresistible accent.

Pastel peach nuance and beige are a good choice for every occasion and everyday life.

Natural nails with a light, shimmering shine and French appeal are really easy to spell: neatly nails and apply only an extremely lustrous top coat for a glassy effect to enhance the natural beauty of well-groomed hands in a particularly subtle way. For an extra glamorous effect, for example at a party, you can add glitter.
The so-called metallic nails are becoming increasingly popular in delicate tones as well as in dark, dramatic variations. As the name suggests, these are nail polishes in metallic tones. The effect can be achieved by several nail design techniques: by color with small shimmering particles, by film or by special pigments. Each technique produces a more or less shiny look and makes the fingernails into real accessories. The elaborate metallic effects look best on not too long fingernails with a slightly rounded shape, otherwise the whole nail design seems quickly overloaded.

In the “abstract” nail design, a paint that is as intense as possible in color is applied as a substrate and then a second color is dabbed with a dry bristle brush. A particularly beautiful effect is achieved by complementary colors. In “Tint Nails” you use the most neutral base coat possible, such as pink or nude. When the first layer dries out, dab some paint in the middle of the nail and gently blot it with a sponge. It should give a delicate watercolor effect. Finally, you seal with top coat.
