In turn, these trend predictions could prove popular for nail colour choices during the season.

“A colour range of heartening hues reflective of the natural environment in our local surroundings inspires our creative energies and awaken the desire for a replenished perspective on the application of colour, one where whimsy and charm combine with pragmatism and our ideas of heritage re-envisioned and our connection to nature are reinforced,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.
