Remember the days when nail colour was either clear, pink or red?  Long acrylic talons aside, a French polish was the only way to make your manicure stand out. 

Thankfully, you can now find just about any shade you could possibly desire. Choosing the right colour has become so important in the style stakes that fashion designers have nail looks customised for their international runway shows.

Looking ahead to next summer, if the runway nails at the recent Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia are anything to go by, there will be a strong focus on naturals and nudes, and a swing away from really bright. bold nails.  For 'pop', look to metallic where you would have used bright colour. Nail art will still be strong, but simpler - a couple of colours only, with geometric influences.

In the meantime, here are our picks of the hottest nail colours for right now.
