Professional nail polish colors have become a staple accessory for most fashionistas. If you're ready to embrace the fresh colors of the warmer seasons, you're not alone. The beauty and style experts at Glamour magazine recently dished on the best nail colors and trends to try this season so you'll be ready to dazzle whether at work or out on the town with friends.
One of the best and easiest trends to master is rocking stylish and sophisticated solids. Pale pinks, whites and pastels continue to be popular into spring, so opting to use a fresh hue like CND Nail Colour - Neutrals in Putty might be a great way to kick off the new you.
Plus, an option like this is easy to fix and won't show up if you go a tad over your cuticles due to rushing. On the same note, if you're feeling a bit bolder, you can express your carefree attitude with a more intense solid. Since Pantone declared emerald green as the "it" color of the year, it might be a great idea to rock this stunning hue on your nails to prove you're on trend.
Just the tips
It's no secret that the fashionable French manicure style is a classically chic nail trend. However, in today's funkier world, spicing up the tips of your nails is major. According to the experts at Glamour, having fun with color combos is the best way to stand out in a 2013-appropriate Frenchie.
For tons of sass, try applying a pastel blue or seafoam blue base color. Jazz it up further by swiping on an orange or tangerine-toned polish on the tips. If wild colors aren't your thing, opt to shine by way of shimmer. Start by painting your nails in a glossy black hue, then add silver or even light blue or green glitter polish on either the tips or the base of your nails for a perfect design.
Another great way to enhance your spring style is by using sassy nail pens to draw darling flowers on a few of your nails. According to Seventeen magazine, rocking a royal blue color on the majority of nails and adding a gorgeous application of white base polish and blue and green flowers on one or two nails on each hand is sure to garner major attention.
