How To Nail It This Spring

5 senses

The days are slowly but surely getting longer, and even though the weather may not have gotten the memo, the calendar says that we’re getting closer to the first day of spring. We’re more than halfway through winter, and it’s time to start getting ready for warmer weather. A simple way to begin is to switch up your nails making them your first foray into the spring fashion blitz.

Neutrals are always in fashion, but this spring they come with a bit of a twist. Adding creamy neutral colors or maybe something with a bit of an opalescent sheen over almond or oval-shaped nails will instantly make both nails and fingers seem longer, softer, and more feminine. Keep it classic by wearing this look alone, or amp it up with some simple pale stripes or embellished cuticles.

Another great twist over a neutral base coat is a modern metallic tone. Go for a rose-gold French manicure or a textured bright gold tip. For a bit of a graphic look, add a simple silver line atop your preferred neutral base. A simple transition from winter to spring is to overlay a sheer metallic on a nude base. Easy done.

Take it all one step further with a graphic French manicure. Rather than opt for the traditional white tip, why not branch out into multi-colored tips instead? Or, rather than follow the traditional contour tip, make it a colorful oblique and trail one side all the way down to the cuticle. Add a bit of a graphic metallic shape at the cuticle, and you’ll elevate your manicure to nail art. And speaking of nail art, color blocking will be huge this spring. Brightly colored dots, stripes and geometrics of all sorts will be contrasting with base tones to really make fingertips pop and supplement the brightly colored spring fashions.
