A surefire way to combat cold weather woes is to daydream of all the light, bright nail polish hues waiting for you this Spring! This season, it’s all about vivid neons, Mediterranean blues and ladylike pastels. Meanwhile, pale dove grey a’la Rihanna will officially replace taupe as the new it color. To get the look, try Lippmann Collection Nail Polish in Waking Up in Vegas ($16). The tatoo is optional, of course.
Revlon Glimmer Glaze Nail Enamel in Banana Blaze ($4.79) gives nails a stunningly sheer wash of shimmery, citrus-y color.
Rescue Beauty Nail Polish in Teal ($18), an impossibly sexy blue-green hue, was inspired by Proenza Schouler’s surfer-chic Spring runway show.
Brand-new for Spring 2010, MAC Nail Lacquer in Galore Pink ($12) is a universally flattering, neon candy pink that’s especially cute on toes.
Chanel’s new Nail Colour in Inattendu ($23) gives nails the barest hint of peachy beige. Simply put, this is Spring’s prettiest go-with-everything nude.
Sweet pastels are a major nail trend this Spring—and no one does lavender better than Essie Nail Polish in Lilacism ($8).
If you make one polish purchase this Spring, make it an electric tangerine shade like Zoya Nail Polish in Gwin ($7). This sunny orange shade looks beyond hot on brown skin.
Super-pale, powder pink is always a springtime staple. We’re into Yves Saint Laurent Nail Touch in Tender Pink Touch ($26), which comes in an utterly glamorous applicator pen that allows you to touch up your nails anytime, anywhere!
Get bold with a sparkly shock of denim blue! OPI Alice in Wonderland Collection Polish in Absolutely Alice ($6.95) is a statement-making cobalt color that doesn’t look teenybopper-y on nails (a very key detail, when you’re talking about blue polish!).
