It’s almost sandal season again which, aside from warmer weather and longer days (finally), can only mean one thing: time for pedicures. But before you pull out your stash of nail polish from last summer, take a look at what’s hot this season. Put down the neon and make way for pastels and nudes.
Not only are nudes on-trend this season, but they are super easy to wear: nudes elongate fingers and just one coat does the trick. We are loving Butter London’s Hoorah Henri ($14) and Sephora by O.P.I.’s Going Nude, Eh? ($9.50), which mimic the almost-bare effect seen at Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2011 show.
Pastels were all over the Spring 2011 runways and, to be honest, we’re glad to say goodbye to neon colors–at least for a season to two. The sherbet-like shades of NARS Nail Polish in Pokerface ($16) and POP Beauty Nail Glam in O’Boy ($14) make us feel girly and summery.
Grays were everywhere this winter, but we love these updated spring versions. No one does nail polish like Chanel, and Chanel Le Vernis Nail Polish in Black Pearl ($25), a metallic charcoal that changes depending on the light, is already a hit. For a more opaque look that is still modern, we choose DiorVernis Nail Polish in Gris Montaigne ($21).
