Give your nails that pastel pretty look Add to ...

The summer's coolest nail colours are precisely that: cool. After months of poppy brights and moody darks, it's time for matte pastels - the manicure equivalent of a trip to the ice-cream parlour. (A tip: These shades tend to go on sheer initially, so apply at least two coats for a look that's both fabulously flirty and deliciously demure.)
