Burgundy hair, wine stained lips and maroon sundresses–you are going to see this sophisticated and gorgeous colour everywhere this summer. This rich deep burgundy colour is one of the hottest colours of the year, and you’ve got to embrace it before it’s too late.

While it can be a little dark and scary to pull off at times, you can always flaunt it on your nails. That way it will add a little edge and glamour to your summer manicure and look oh-so-pretty too!

Here are 5 ways in which you can wear burgundy nails this summer...

Maroon mismatched

Mismatched manicure is huge right now and for the right reason.  You can mix and match burgundy with two or more colours to get your own imperfectly perfect nail art. Throw in a glitter nail colour and a lighter shade for a chic look. Get it with Lakmé Color Crush Nail Art - G5, Lakmé True Wear Color Crush-43 and Lakmé True Wear Color Crush - Reds 22.

Oh ombré

For those who love to show off their dark side, pair burgundy with another dark toned colour, like black may be and get an Ombré nail art done. Take a nail sponge and paint half of it with Elle 18 Nail Pops Nail Polish - 42 and half with Elle 18 Nail Pops Nail Polish – 35. Press the sponge onto the nails and finish with a clear nail paint.

Half moon

If you thought burgundy is only for bold and daring manicures, look at this elegant nail art. A matte burgundy nail colour and half-moon art is classy nail combo. To get this look, paste a circular tape cut-out on the base of your nails and paint with the colour. Remove the tape and it’s done. 

Bloody Mary

Give out serious vampire vibes with this marble nail art. Burgundy colour dripping down clear nails is a spooky and edgy nail art you can try. Paint your nails with a clear nail paint and put a drop of Lakmé True Wear Nail Color - Reds & Maroons 403 while it’s wet. Spread it with a toothpick and finish with Lakmé Absolute Gel Stylist Nail Polish - Top Coat.
