Light Elegance Freshly Squeezed

Get set for a colour frenzy when you can start tending to the nails of clients – and embrace their need for bright hues with the Summer Squeeze collection from Light Elegance.

Inspired by the fresh colours and textures of fruits, the 12 hues serve up a palette of fruity crèmes, succulent shimmers and sun-catching glitters.

Summer Squeeze was dreamt up by the LE colour team to add bold, bright flavour to any look— right on-trend for summer,” comments Lezlie McConnell, Light Elegance co-owner & color mother.

“The palette is inspired by the wide variety of fresh, vibrant colours and textures that make us all love a great piece of fruit. We know that nail professionals will be as inspired by these shades as we were creating them, and the possibilities for creating summer styles and nail art are as juicy and delicious as the beautiful fruit nature provides us.”
