Turn nails up a notch with sizzling summer ’23 shades

It's always exciting when the latest professional colour collections are revealed by the nail industry. In summer, we expect a palette of brights that complement tanned skin, summer fashions and open toe shoes. And summer 2023 collections don't disappoint, taking inspiration from underwater adventures, globe-trotting escapes and steamy desert nights all with a chilled summer vibe.

Leading brands have compiled collections that include sea blues and burnt oranges, hot pinks and flaming corals to take us from late Spring all the way through until the first hints of Autumn. 

Here's a few favourites that will be gracing our fingers and toes over the coming months…
