Blue is the colour of this season’s nail. Chanel styled it as soft for daytime, then dark and rebellious for night – take your pick from the bright Biro blues of the sky two Wednesdays ago, or a schoolish navy and sparkling bruise. Blue nails (Nailberry Number 69, £14.50, nailberry.co.uk) look surprisingly formal. As nail colour options have multiplied into a glossy rainbow, the simple blue has become a quiet classic. Less obviously sexy than a red or pink, blue is the choice for those of us who want the world to know we were once a bit wild. If only, it says, if only you’d known us then.
