beauty trends Zoom: The Lilac Manicure


Lilac is one of those pastel colors that packs a pretty good punch while still looking soft, pretty and downright gorgeous. It's a nail color that is just perfect for summer so now is as good a time as any to take a closer look at it.

Lilac is very much part of the pastel trend that is running parallel to this season's bright neon phenomenon. Pastels are kind of like the anti-neons, perfect for anyone who likes their manicures bright but not too bright. Lilac bridges the gap between the two.

Just like coral, it's still a really vibrant color that stands out against any outfit -apart from a matching lilac one- with a slight paleness that keeps it cute and girly.

The other great thing about lilac nail polish is that it works really well when worn with other colors at the same time. You can use it as part of an ombré manicure with a contrasting dark purple or even incorporate it into a multi-colored look.
