Nail Trends 2015: Red Alert
Jordan Dunn at Burberry SS15
Beauty's classic hue is no secret. Hot red lipsticks and nail varnishes are perpetually at the top of the style agenda no matter what season it is, or year for that matter. Since the beginning of the silver screen era, stars such as Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe and Grace Kelly have sported cherry reds on their fingers, toes and lips to make a serious statement of sensual liberation and timeless glamour.
Dolce & Gabbana SS15
Fast forward to the SS15 catwalk shows and the backstage beauty teams trusted this forever chic colour once more. Jordan Dunn beamed in full red pout thanks to a generous helping of Burberry lipstick. The models at Dolce & Gabbana turned heads with savagely sexy red nail varnish and plum-coloured lips that were complimented with wilds roses worked into their hairstyles.
Zac Posen SS15
Zac Posen's SS15 runway looks were also made complete with short red nails. The secret to pulling off red nail varnish and red lipstick is to keep your eye make-up understated and elegant; opt for a slick of black eyeliner and barely-there, no make-up make-up on your skin. It's about contrasts - balance the glamour of a full red lip with subtly elsewhere. The chicest French women have a rule of wearing less jewellery with a formal outfit and yet more accessories with a off-duty look - it's the rule of contrasts.
Let's cut to the cream, ladies - book your appointment for a speedy manicure and get red Gelaze or a varnish done pronto to capture this endless trend moment in the now.
