Mid-toned pinks are pretty and delicate without being too shouty. Blush, rose and pink lemonade feel fresh and work year-round.
There might be 50 shades of grey, but there are 8 zillion shades of pink* (*probably). It might even be the most versatile colour out there. Think about it. Its spectrum stretches from delicate pale pinks, ballet slipper tones, rosy blushes, tawny pinks and muted pinks, all the way to bold Barbie shades, hot pink holiday toes, neon, fuchsia, cerise and raspberry.
That’s a whole lot of options for one shade to offer.
Within its kaleidoscope, it delivers neat, clean neutrals (Essie’s sheer pale pink, Ballet Slippers, is said to be the Queen’s favourite), while CND’s milky Romantique is a smash-hit among beauty editors and OPI’s bubble bath is a pinkier shade of pale, that looks healthy and natural. Consider it a your nails-but-better number.
Or, there’s the more audacious shades – watermelon and coral feel perfect for summer while vibrant hot pinks like Chanel’s Camelia and NARS’ neon Schiap shade will give you holiday fingers and toes whether you’re off on your travels or not.
And, if you’re still not sure what colour to go for, wear a couple with an ombré design, or wear several like this beaut gradient number from Olive June.
