When you walk into a nail salon, no matter how minimal its polish offerings are, it's guaranteed you'll find the presence of two shades: red and pink. It makes sense because red is a classic and blush pink is a soft reset, often the colour you reach for when you're looking for a neutral that's not nude.
Now, one of the trendiest manicures on Instagram combines both popular shades in what wearers and fans are calling the "strawberry sorbet" manicure. A spin-off of the gradient manicure — a different tone of polish painted on every finger, keeping within the same general colour family — the design involves a red-pink ombré blend that's equal parts chic and fresh for summer.
For inspiration of how to get the look with whatever polishes you have in your collection — because you can throw a tangerine or lemon yellow in the mix, too — scroll through the gallery, ahead.
