Heidi by London Grace, £12

Vibe: Subtle Peach
Salon: London Grace

Since 'Peach Fuzz' was named Pantone's Colour of the Year, London Grace’s ‘Heidi’ shade has flown off the shelves. It’s a much-needed colour pick-me-up to get you through the January blues – we like it for a twist on a classic nude or pink shade.


Signature Lipstick by CND, £13.95

Vibe: Rich Maroon
Salon: Nails & Brows, Mayfair

If you’re a fan of reds but bored of them post-Christmas, this rich maroon may be right up your alley. Made by CND, it has a glossy, long-lasting gel formula, and warm brown and purple undertones – plus it’s effortless to soak off.



Silk / Brownlow Road by The Gel Bottle, £17.40

Vibe: Natural Pink
Salon: Townhouse

For a subtle and silky wash of colour, make this pinky nude your top choice. Slightly cool toned, it suits a range of skin tones as an everyday shade to hit the ‘naked nail’ trend. On the bottle, the shade’s called ‘Silk’ – but if you’re after it at a Townhouse salon, be sure to ask for ‘Brownlow Road’.


Hazy Forest by BioSculpture, £12

Vibe: Chic Khaki
Salon: Secret Spa

For something unique and cool, this khaki shade is so fun. Deep enough to be considered a version of a neutral, it offers a bit of colour while still feeling grown up. Plus, we love BioSculpture’s kind-to-the-nails formulas that enhance both look and feel.


Love At First Sight by 14 Day Manicure, £9

Vibe: A Dark Red
Salon: Duck & Dry

January can be the ideal time to go back to basics, but if you’re most comfortable in a classic red, there are ways to do it without being festive. Thanks to an earthy, deep undertone, you don’t get any pinkish notes with this one. You’ll actually see subtle brown tones that feel chic right now.


Active Glow by Manicurist Paris, £16

Vibe: A Clean Sheet
Salon: DryBy

After the glitz and glam of Christmas, sometimes it’s better to strip things back and give your nails a break. This glow-y, clear shade from Manicurist does exactly that, working to rehydrate nails in need, while offering a subtle glossy tint to the nails in the interim.
