Statement nails

This nail look is bold but fabulous. A great option for your braver clients. Get them to pick their own colours and quotes for a personalised look.

5 in 1

This is one for those clients that take forever choosing a colour. Why not have five?! This look would work beautifully with the CND™ Nude collection for a natural, toned down look. Alternatively, go for five bold colours to really make a statement.

Checkboard French manicure

A new take on the French manicure. Try a checkboard French mani for a cool, monochrome look or opt for something brighter to inject some colour.

Texture and embellishment

Adding some texture to the nails can completely transform a manicure. We adore both of these beautiful sets! Chose from our wide range of Crystals and stones and unleash your creativity to create a manicure fit for a nail queen.

Tartan nails

This may be a marmite trend, however, we love it! This sassy, Scottish look is right up our street!

Abstract designs

Re-create this simple, abstract design with Gellux gel polish in Raven Black or mix it up with by using different colours to create your own take on the design. We think it would look great using CND™ Shellac in Studio White.

Glitter nails

We are so happy that glitter nails are on trend for 2018. An easy “go to” for any occasion. Why have boring nails when you can have glitter?!


As the colour orange is hot on trend this year, why not opt for a simple but fabulous orange manicure? We can’t wait to sport an awesome orange set this summer.

Accent nail

These nails are making us want to wear pink every day! The accent nail works beautifully with the perfect pink shade, adding a touch of glamour to an otherwise subtle set. Try Lecente glitter in Charmed and CND™ Vinylux™ in Beau to recreate this look.
