There's a new manicure trend on the block and it might have a little something to do with one of your favourite tipples. Get acquainted with the rosé nail trend. We're talking a glossy shade of sheer pale blush that bears more than a striking resemblance to the colour of a bottle of Whispering Angel. Basic? Us?! In all seriousness, this pretty shade of nail polish comes with more than a few beauty benefits. The soft shade that sits on the peachy side of pink is universally flattering and makes nails look well-conditioned and healthy. The colour also works to enhance the skin on your hands too - talk about a multi-tasker! Add to that the fact that any chips are barely visible and you have yourself the perfect on-trend nail look for spring. It's definitely a trend worth bearing in mind at your first manicure appointment out of lockdown after salons reopen on 12 April.
