We don’t know about you, but here at Seraphine we can’t wait for spring! The days are definitely getting lighter and longer, and we’ve even spotted a few intrepid flowers springing up about the place. But as much as we’d like to, it’s still a little chilly to switch our winter coats out for a lighter option. So while we wait for spring to get into full swing, we’re tiding ourselves over by trying out the latest nail trends fresh from the SS16 catwalks.
Here are our top 5 trends to try this season:
1) French Tips 2.0
You could certainly be forgiven for thinking that French tips were a thing of the past – we all sure did! But this season saw some fabulous new takes on the classic style. We saw French tips in unexpectedly vibrant shades like bright green at Monique L’huillier and burnt orange at Veronica Beard – perfect for warmer weather. And Tibi combined the French tips, negative space and bright colour trends to create modern interrupted tips.

2) Check it Out
Another big bold trend to look out for this season is checks. Opening Ceremony nailed this look, offering bright primary colour checks on some models, along with classic black and white on others. While at the Brooks Brothers by Zac Posen show, they took a more subtle approach with a paired down plaid effect.

3) Get in Line
Sticking with the geometric theme, stripes were all the rage this season. From elegant asymmetric lines in chic black & white at Marissa Webb, to sleek gold foil strips on rich chocolate brown at Phillip Lim, it seems anything goes when it comes to stripes this season! We love this trend – it’s super wearable, and easily adaptable to match any outfit.
Work it with: Nautical Maternity Maxi Dress
If you’re aiming for a more feminine aesthetic this spring, you’ll be pleased to know there are plenty of options to choose from. We love the soft ombre effect nails at Suno and Rebecca Minkoff. And if Erin Fetherston’s stunning nude floral nails with exquisite pearl detailing aren’t the ideal bridal style, we don’t know what is!

5) All that Glitters
And for something a little bit special, why not add a touch of glitter! There are plenty of ways to add a touch of sparkle to your style this season – we love Kenzo’s textured gold foil and Chanel’s high-shine liquid chrome look. Or for a subtler approach, we saw discreet glitter at Delpozo and subtle gold leaf sparkles at Alice & Olivia.
Work it with: Stretch Denim Maternity Jumpsuit
