ALL ABOUT NAILS

What are your favourite summer shades?

Say sayonara to the lipstick index––it’s all about nails now. Cosmetics & Toiletries USA 2009 confirms that sales of lipsticks and lip glosses declined 5.3 per cent last year, while nail polish sales jumped almost 15% (more than any other industry category). Market researcher Kline & Company credits the new popularity to the increase of product launches, a shift from salon visits to at-home manis, and of course, the return of nail colour to the fashion world (Chanel Black Satin, anyone?) We for one can’t keep our digits from any new nail colour that crosses our desks. Our new fave? OPI’s Panda-monium Pink from the Hong Kong Collection. It goes on as the perfect mix of classic pink and trendy pastel purple. What shades are you loving for Summer?
