The Beauty Edit | Summer Oranges


Sandal season is here, but don’t let London’s unpredictable summer weather (read: predictably wet) prevent your toes from saying “St Tropez”. As long summer days turn to balmy nights, these are the seasonal brights to turn to when London (eventually!) hots up.

Shades for the summer.

Fern About Town - Chanel Orange Fizz

Chanel, Le Vernis, in Orange Fizz (307)

Mid-August, Cote D’Azur, sand between your (Chanel-lacquered toes) feeling… Shade 307 was made for the French Riviera in summer. Or, perhaps, just peeking through your office-appropriate summer wedges…

Note: Chanel recently reformulated their polishes so this exact shade will be discontinued by the end of the current season. Fear not, though! Reliable sources assure that all shades will eventually transition to the new ‘longwear’ formulation.

Fern About Town - OPI Modern Girl

O.P.I. Nail Lacquer, in Modern Girl

A red-hot coral for the cosmopolitan girl about town. The vibrant Modern Girl will take you from client meeting to cocktail hour mid-week, and coffee shop to flower market come the weekend.

Fern About Town - Essie Meet Me At Sunset

Essie, nail polish in Meet Me At Sunset

The juicy blood orange shade of Meet Me At Sunset will carry your nails through the summer months, whether you’re sat at an Excel spreadsheet or under the shade of a Valencian orange grove.

Beach, anyone?
