Manucurist Flashback

French family nail brand, Manucurist Paris, has added two striking nail colours to its summer 2022 collection, the Flashback collection.

The shades are part of a collaboration between the nail company and French swimwear, clothing and lingerie brand, Albertine.

The partnership has seen a number of retro, beach-themed accessories launched, including two sheets of California-inspired nail art stickers, designed by French illustrator, Geoffroy de Crecy and featuring skateboards, cocktails, cassette tapes and more.

A sweatshirt, pouch and swimwear have also been released as part of the Flashback collection – all with a stylish feel that takes inspiration from the 1980s.

The two shades launched as part of the Albertine x Manucurist collaboration are Iris, a bold and assertive purple with blue undertones that is reminiscent of the sea, and Apricot, an apricot orange hue inspired by ’80s discos.

Both shades are available in Manucurist’s Green nail polish and Green Flash gel polish formulas.

Other nail shades featured in the Flashback summer collection are iridescent copper Bronzé, pink-violet Armeria and pure white Snow.

The Flashback collection is available in the UK via
