The Hottest Nail Polish Colour For Summer 2016

Things are looking peachy.

It's official, the weather's warming up and we're all wearing peach-tinted glasses.

Named as one of Pantone's top 10 colours for spring/summer 2016, and given the seal of approval by Beyoncé in her Met Gala gown, peach looks set to be the most popular colour of the season.

East London-based nail artist Maddy Ayers (Maad Nails) told The Huffington Post that the trend for peach nail art is also set for a "big comeback this summer."

"It's the perfect colour to flatter all skin tones," she explained.

The hue has been been so popular that nail polish brand Essie have noticed their shade Lounge Lover (above, priced £7.99 from Boots) start to fly off the shelves.

If you're a fan, act quick, as the pretty pink peach is part of Essie's limited edition Spring Collection, only on shelves until Monday 30 May.

But if you're used to low-key nails, how do you pull off a bold and bright pop of colour?

"Use a matte top coat to keep your mani smart for the office,"Ayers told us. "Or combine with some gold sparkle for a fun evening look."
