Double-denim is back – and we’re not talking 90s trousers trends. This year, it’s taken over Instagram and you can wear it anyway you like; clothes, hair, nails or make-up – you name it! Be it a jean-effect manicure or a frosted teal lip, all hail the best blue-inspired looks of 2017:
Next level nails
Forget finding that ultimate flattering jean cut – this is a one-size for all kinda fit. Doubling up as a perfectly pretty summertime mani or pedi, denim nail art is the hottest trend to slay our Instagram feeds this year. Created by @misspopnails, a matte-based polish is firstly applied as the undercoat, later adding a little rhinestone bling and super-cute stitching detail for a chic, textured finish. It’s this season’s must-have pair – frayed hems and all.
If denim-inspired acrylics just weren’t quite enough, here’s to the sleekest do to brace the summer season. The upgrade to spring’s rainbow/ holographic hair fad, this gorgeous look combines pastel indigos with subtle metallic hues – creating a shimmering, multi-dimensional effect. Worn in natural waves or last week’s super-cute bunches, it’s the hottest hair trend that is literally to dye for.

In true 70s style, bold blues are making their official palette comeback. Similar to the iconic disco-eye, they’re a great alternative to winters smoky-based shadows, adding depth and definition without the heaviness of dark grey or brown shades. Offset by a neutral lip, it’s the perfect additional glam to any party outfit!

Following on from the widely popular ‘platinum’ pout’, vibrant blue-based hues are also giving our lips a go. Embracing everything extra, frosted teals and cosmic turquoises, teamed with a nude eye, make for the perfect stand-out shade. Be it high-shine or a matte-finish – this is no casual jeans affair.
