Coloured French Tips

Coloured French tips are an innovative twist on the classic French manicure. This summer, we saw colourful and multicoloured French tips take over however as we transition into colder weather, a deep red will become the preferred colour for a chic, modern look. Recreate this look with a clear basecoat, SAMA’s Holly polish and a French nail art stamper.

Cherry cola/ cherry wine nails

These deep, moody tones are perfect for any occasion, offering a classy and sophisticated look. They align with the ‘red nail theory,’ suggesting that a minimal effort can still yield a put-together appearance. Be THAT girl and recreate these cola nails with a mix of SAMA’s Ashley and President Chavez polish for a deep red nail that screams elegance and sophistication.

Leopard print/tortoise shell nails

Jacquie Alexander has embraced this trend fully, incorporating warm tones and French tips. Scared to lean into and commit to pattern nails? This style is for those ready to embrace patterns and make a bold statement, without going too far. Despite its complicated look, leopard nails can be easily recreated with a French nail art stamper and SAMA’s President Chavez polish. Once your tips are dry, use a fine brush or the tip of a mini beauty blender to paint on the spots using SAMA’s Rohan polish.

A massive hit last winter, Aura Nails are poised to dominate again with their striking colour combinations like black with baby blue, and plum with pink. Just because it’s winter, doesn’t mean you can’t flaunt bright and colourful nails! Aura nails can be recreated by starting off with SAMA’s Brooks polish as a base coat. Then, using a sponge or mini beauty blender, gently dab your colour of choice on the centre of your nail. We suggest using Chawki, a beautiful baby blue. It’s as easy as that!
