It’s transition time: the halfway point between spring and summer. It’s also time to bring out the peep-toe pumps.
If you’re anything like me, baring your first pedicure of the season to the world is never the most fun thing. And let’s not discuss the state of my winter-white hands.
So I always try to start off on the right foot (heh heh) with a fun, trendy nail polish color.
My favorite (but only for feet, I’m not brave enough to wear it on my hands) is China Glaze’s Celtic Sun ($2.68). A bright, sunny yellow, it reminds me of daffodils. The warmth of the color might be overpowering for those of you with cool-toned skin, but with the right shoes, anything is possible.
Also high on the list are sweet pastels. Spring is the time of new beginnings, and what better way to celebrate than with baby pinks and sweet peaches? An oldie (but goodie) is Zoya Bailey ($6), a sheer, shimmery pink that’s flattering on a wide array of skin tones. Also check out Essie’s Tie the Knot ($8) for a gorgeous shade of buff.
Now, we come to the two trends I just don’t understand (possibly because they’re corpse-like on my warm-toned skin) – dove grey and lavender. Grey is the hot color of the season. If you’re interested (and I totally was), check out Essie’s Great Expectations above. ($8)
For lavender, Zoya’s Miley ($6) is an understated, yet current shade.
