Is Pastel Polish About to Become Summer’s Most Wanted Nail Color?

Posted on 11 August 2016

What kind of summer manicure shade is clean and cool and takes you everywhere? That of the pastel variety. Tenoverten co-owner Adair Ilyinsky, who stocks a spectrum of pale lacquers at her trio of New York nail spas, offers three reasons why: “They are more unexpected than the brighter shades that typically define the season,” she says. “They feel more elevated. And pastels transition a little better from city to country to beach and back.”

The crisp shades also have the power to look relaxed or a bit edgier, especially when paired with the right statement accessory. Geometric metallic jewelry—a sculptural Balenciaga bow ring here, a Céline cuff bracelet there—adds a neat minimalism to an icy manicure. When it comes to your pedicure, of course, the right shoe is everything. Ilyinsky suggests wearing pink (try Tenoverten’s polish in Jane) with, say, a tan leather slide from ATP Atelier. The most flattering picks will be those with gray or beige undertones, she says, not white. With that in mind, we’re thinking Smith & Cult’s lavender Fauntleroy would go with Tabitha Simmons’s silvery Leticia sandal for a slightly subversive match. Here, our vote for the six best polishes to try now. Read full article at http://www.vogue.com/
