Manicure trend: Sunset hues
There’s no better way to give an outfit a splash of colour than a fresh manicure.
Manicure trends for this season evoke the prettiest of sunsets, with bright oranges and soft yellows the pick of the crop.
From lemon to warm ambers, the beauty world’s new yellows are a fun departure from go-to reds and nudes. A great way to try the hue is with iZ Beauty of London’s Gel Effect Nail Lacquer in Lemon Meringue, a creamy pastel yellow - guaranteed to complement both casual and

Working well with neutral and pastel colour palettes, peach nail polishes are proving popular. Nailberry’s Oxygenated Nail Lacquer in Happiness is a lovely cross between pink and peach, which is fairly subtle. To get best results from this polish, ensure you buff nails lightly to remove any excess oil, apply a good base coat and then add two very thin layers of the lacquer. For those seeking a slightly bolder look, Essie’s Peach Side Babe is a sweet shade which isn’t too orange or salmon. This colour looks super chic on short, round nails and works best when two coats are applied and finished with a top coat for extra shine.
Fitting somewhere between peach and tangerine, there is a whole range of fun orange hues just waiting to grace your digits. LOLA’s Ultra Shine Nail Polish in Tango Mango is a bright shade with a high gloss finish, which has a short drying time and contains UV filters to prevent discolouration. Another great option is Butter London’s Nail Lacquer in Tiddly, a vivid melon. This product is not only 8-free, but is highly pigmented for one-stroke coverage and has a wide brush with a curved edge, allowing for a simple and neat application.
