In our moodboard: tie-dye, lavender jade, milk bath nails and more

Looking for some inspiration to bring to your next manipedi appointment? In case cow-print manis and mismatched nails can't slake your itchy fingers to try a radical new look, scroll down for the best nail ideas this month.

Minerals are on most moodboards this season, with opal and jade nails sported by celebrities such as Rihanna. Florals get a finer touch with the #milkbathnail trend taking Instagram by storm—a creamy milky hue as a base for floral motifs to give an ethereal effect. If you can't resist a punchy colour, tie-dye, rainbow shades and sprightly hues worthy of summer are what you should look out for.
