Spring Nail Trends: Bold, Distinctive and Neutral
In addition to glam clothing and accessories, spring-inspired nail trends made a lasting impression on designer runway collections. Give your look a simple spring update with fresh covetable styles in shades that are bright, refreshing and totally neutral.
A slew of creatively bold nail polish trends, including neons, prints, and sparkles, have been revealed, making painting your nails more of an art form than a beauty routine. Select from brands like OPI , essie or Sally Hansen , available at retailers Ulta and Sephora, or, if you want to splurge on a designer must-have, visit the Chanel counter for fab nail polish assortments. Coordinate with bold colors, featuring orange, yellow, green, purple and pink on your digits, while also incorporating nude, taupe and camel colors, keeping it clean and natural.
Below are three gorgeous nail-trend samples that will energize your balmy spring looks:
Turn on the Brights
If you are fair skin toned, choose from a variety of bold greens, pinks and purples to paint your nails. If you have medium to dark skin tone, work with bright oranges and yellows to accessorize your hands. The closer to neon, the better, especially when worn with a simply chic ensemble that allows for the color on your nails to make your look pop!
After choosing your preferred neon, spice up nail art with a one-nail accent on each hand. This can be a funky print, monochrome scheme, studded sparkles or a combination of the three! It doesn’t matter which fingers you choose to debut or which accents you choose; have fun and get in touch with your creative side – if you mess up, a few nail polish remover swipes will save your style!
Better in the Raw
For a prim and proper manicure, stick to crème beiges that compliment your skin’s natural hues. Subtle enough for everyday wear, the relaxed colors are calming, recharging and covertly sexy.
