There’s no greater sign of having your life under control than a flawless manicure / pedicure. It’s a visual code for: “I’ve got this”; preened, kept, lacquered nail beds the ultimate indicator of having a handle on it (or the outwardly projection of, at the very least). So as we launch into yet another week, let your mani do the talking and keep your finger on the pulse with these happy hues of blue and green, just the thing to brighten any mood (read: any manic Monday).

As we dabble in that oh-so delicate dance of trans-seasonal dressing – is it winter? Is it summer! – the bright and cheery palette is traditionally dialled down in favour of more winter-friendly hues. But don’t forgo colour altogether; a little pop of colour goes a long way. Consider then, hopping into (nail) bed with green and blue. Nail’s current colour crush (Zoë Kravitz, Imaan Hammam, Gigi Hadid are all fans), play with soft stone-blue, punchy sky or fresh mint.

Cool undertones in blue make the colour universally flattering on just about anyone, so try these three from O.P.I’s new Tokyo Collection and transform those Monday blues into some nail magic.

Hotline, blue? Is that you?
