Back to Nature Nudes —Nude-as-naked nails look refreshingly demure, yet provocative. Make sure your polish comes in a high-gloss formula so you don't end up looking like you have mannequin hands.
The Blues Clues—Whether it's Robin's Egg or Tiffany's Box, this pale blue shade has got "Spring" written all over it.
Peachy-Keen Pink—Need a polish that'll make your tan shine? This is it, ladies.
Lovely in Lavender—Purple nails are our secret weapon. Dusty purples, saturated lavenders, and shiny heliotropes look great with most skin tones.
Gun-Metal Grays—Don't forget about those metallics! Give your digits the full metal treatment with pearlescent polishes. The future is now!
The Can't-Miss Topcoats—Give your polish an extra edge with a striking top coat that cracks over your color; one that adds a slick, holographic shimmer; or one that adds a gilded layer of nude shimmer.
Shades typically lighten up each spring, but instead of going sheer, this year's crop of pastels stays rich and creamy-think smooth purples, bright blues, and yummy peach-tinged pinks. Plus, the nude lacquers spotted at a plethora of spring shows (like Marc Jacobs, Jason Wu, and Yigal Azrouel) are having their moment, and those looking for punched up hits of color won't be disappointed either: Bright, bold lacquers are making an appearance, and some optically intriguing shades of gun metal are popping up, too. So, get ready to totally transform your digits in 2011 with our ultimate guide to spring nail polishes—talk about a cheap thrill!
My Tips: For hands, I have always been a fan of the French Manicure as they make your hands look classy and it gives you a well groomed slick look. A nude shade on a manicure is always trendy and perfect for every occasion. For Pedicures I love both strong and nude colours. I tend to experiment more on my colours for my feet...but a great deep red is always a classic! OPI have an amazing range of colours and the names they use are brilliant. Seche Vite Top Coat is a must have and OPI Cuticle oil is essential for your handbag.
