Nail colour and nail art will never go out of style, but recently the beauty world has begun a new love affair – the invisinail. This is when a subtle, see-through colour is applied to the nails, making them look beautifully manicured and healthy.
Think of it as somewhere between a clear base coat and a matte flesh tone. The trend follows on from barely there make-up, where subtle and skillful make-up gives the illusion of natural perfection. It’s a great way to let your natural beauty shine through, so we’re not surprised the trend has taken to the nail world.
The latest formulations are more than just a hint of colour and gloss, they can do everything from reducing discolouration to restoring nail health with superfood ingredients. Want to give it go? Try these:
Promising to cover and correct discolouration, this is a CC cream for the nails and is perfect if your nails are a little too yellow or pink. Wear this on its own or as a base for a more prominent colour.
A favourite backstage at catwalk shows, this is a touch more peachy than Chanel’s offering. This hint of colour makes it ideal for correcting any blue tones on the skin of the hands.
Essie Sugar Daddy (£7.99)
A very slight and subtle pink shimmer brightens the natural nail. If you’re looking for healthy looking nails, this is the one to go for.
This works like a highlighter for the nails, one coat will up the shine for an illuminating effect, while two coats gives greater coverage for a more obvious impact.
MAC Texturise Top Coat (£10)
If you’re not a fan of glossy looking nails, this formula will be right up your street. Giving a smooth and even finish, this top coat semi-mattifies the nail.
