Geranium

A pop of red is perfect with a tan, and Geranium is the best fusion of orange and red that we’ve ever seen. If you do suffer from breakage, carry the polish in your handbag to disguise any cracks ASAP!

Bordeaux

Just as the name suggests, this shade is a deep red wine which is beautiful in the winter months. Just one coat is enough to look opaque, but double it for a moody red.

The World’s Best Beach Hotels Revealed

Each year Conde Nast reveal the 33 best new hotels in the world. With Australia’s gorgeous coastline and booming tourism industry, it was sad to see that none of our fine resorts or hotels made the list. About 510 hotels were evaluated in the categories of Beach, Design, Food, Family, Bargain, Over-the-Top, and Way-Out-There hotels.

The best beach hotels were:

Andaz Maui at Wailea, Hawaii

Mukul Resort, Nicaragua

Nizuc Resort & Spa, Cancun

Point Yamu by Como, Phuket

Salt House Inn, Provincetown

Traveler magazine describes the lists criteria as:

“A sense of place: a hotel that celebrates where it is in the world. A sense of personality: a hotel where it feels like every decoration has been hand-chosen by a person, not by a committee. 

“A sense of intuition: a hotel where it feels like your needs are considered before you even know what they are.

“The result is a list that takes you around the world – from Kenya to Los Angeles, St. Petersburg to Phuket – and speaks to the passions and habits of the modern traveler.”
