Rihanna is the one celebrity I can rely on to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to nail trends. She isn’t afraid to be bold or take risks. While most of the red carpet clan is playing it safe with french manicures and sheers, there are few that dare to be nail fashion forward.
Rihanna’s red carpet look at the 2008 Grammy Awards in February was one of those stand out nail moments. Her fiery tangerine hued talons were most definitely noticed. If you want to be in vogue this summer you’ll want to rock a similar look. Personally, I’m not a fan of long bright nails so I’ll be sporting an active length version.
My top picks are all cremes and range from muted mango to blazing traffic cone orange so there’s something for everyone. With such a bold shade you don’t need the extra glitz just high shine so cremes fit the bill. It’s more chic and modern.
