As a proud member of the Queer community, June is always an exciting time for me. The month of Pride means feeling extra proud and excited about our identities as LGBTQ+ people, and is awash with celebrations (from now until the end of summer) across the country in the form of festivals, parades and parties.
And as a huge nail art fan (seriously, it’s like my favourite part of being a beauty editor), I tend to use this time to wear my pride on my fingertips. Whether it’s simple rainbows, more intricate designs, glitter galore or just a multi-coloured mani, I love this season of brights and bolds.
Now if you love a nude (nail polish, that is…), this is the time to throw caution to the wind and try something a little different. Embrace your pride – whether a part of the community or a loving ally – with your beauty choices this season, starting with bright, happy, celebratory nails….
