Indulge in the spirit of the season with a beautiful manicure from myself or any one of our expert therapists.

It can be a bit overwhelming sometimes to choose the right colour. And this season is no exception as we have an abundance of beautiful polishes to choose from – you really are going to be spoilt for choice! From the latest chrome, metallics, and rainbow effects, to traditional reds, greens, and golds but that’s where we can help and advise. Here’s my top tips on what colours are trending at the moment for you to consider.
The big news this season is deep, decadent colours. Think opulent forest greens and darkened versions of emerald green such as Opi’s ‘Peppermint Bark & Bite’ for the perfect on-trend look. Dark, rich colours such as this are super-flattering and complement almost every skin tone. Green shades are tipped to become more popular this year than traditional red shades or even the classic French manicure but that’s not to say that the red hues aren’t getting a stylish makeover too. Red is the perfect choice for the festive season and this year is no exception with a whole array of reds on offer inspired by wines! Think burgandy, merlot and even ‘Malaga Wine’ from Opi. But if you’re looking for a true red with a cheeky twist, then Opi’s ‘Rebel With a Clause’ is the shade I’d recommend. Festive, daring and a little bit naughty!
When it comes to festive nail colors, nothing beats metallics. With metallics, it’s natural to think of silver, gold, or bronze and Opi’s new ‘Terribly Nice’ collection includes some fabulous gold, silver, and beautiful copper shades – perfect for adding a touch of pzazz to the cold wintery days. My personal favourite is ‘Five Golden Flings’ – a seductive metallic gold that is just gorgeous. But this winter, pastel colors like lilac will also be big news. Wintery colours such as pale blues and lilacs look stunning with an added shimmer added to them so if you’re looking to find the perfect nails for a particular outfit I’ll happily advise on a colour which will complement and work well with a shimmery overlay.
One last tip. A lot of guests are happier with a more natural look and this is definitely a big trend that we’ve seen here at Obsession. Naked nails or natural nails is here to stay. Think beiges, nudes, tans and soft pinks and my all time go to: ‘Chill ‘Em With Kindness’, a winter white nail polish laced with a subtle lilac shimmer. For a glossy, healthy nail appearance, I’d recommend trying a chrome finish over opaque or sheer shades. It’s the perfect finishing touch to any festive look.
