Amanda du-Pont and Mihlali Ndamase rock the red nail trend

The South African media personalities can be seen on Instagram wearing the trendy red nail colour as the weather gets sunnier.

Many South African celebrities have taken to the trend of showing off their nails after getting a manicure. There seems to be something chic about having faultless nails that are polished, painted and groomed to perfection. Not leaning towards boring subtle neutrals, South African celebrities have taken to social media to show their manicured nails in bright reds and edgy darks.

Red nails always seem to look elegant and chic and South African media personality and actress, Amanda du-Pont proved this notion. The Skeem Saam actress took to Instagram on Monday, 2 September 2019, to share an image of herself donning the bright red colour on her nails, wearing a casual all-black outfit with fashionable chunky sneakers.

Known for her often over-the-top make-up looks and sultry fashion choices, South African make-up artist and vlogger, Mihlali Ndamase, also took on the red nail trend. She posted an image on her Instagram page on Friday, 30 August 2019, wearing the colour while enjoying a cup of coffee. In the caption, she mentioned that she had the nails done at the popular nail and beauty company, Sorbet.

On the other hand, South African actress, Thuli Phongolo, showed social media fans that even though the weather may be getting warmer in South Africa, they should not put away their dark coloured nail polish just yet. She took to Instagram on Tuesday, 3 September 2019 to share an image of her nails in a black manicure. The Makoti actress captioned the image saying that short and black nails are what she’s going for at the moment.
