Finally saw the sun today, starting to feel like spring!  What are your picks for spring nail colours?

1 Textured Nudes

For a fresh take on the classic nude manicure, this season's flesh and peachy tones got updated with subtle textural elements, says Jan Arnold, co-founder and and style director of CND, whose team of nail artists were backstage at Monique Lhullier, Marc Jacobs, and Jason Wu fashion shows this season. "This spring, the new 'griege' nail is a pale peach porcelain cream, aged in different ways--high shine for luxe perfection, iridescent, or with a satin finish," explains Arnold. She recommends layering CND Effects polish in Perfectly Bare Shimmer over their Perfectly Bare shade: "It's like lip gloss for nails!"

2 Dark & Stormy

The deep manicure trend expands this season to new shades of blue, red, and berry. We're loving the oxblood red nails from Jason Wu's spring show (CND Colour polish in Veronica). This rich, to-die-for burgundy is part of CND's spring Jason Wu collection (created in collaboration with the hot young designer). We love every one of these limited edition shades, but Veronica is especially heart-stopping.

3 Special Effects

Go creative and avant-garde with your manicure this season: At the Diego Binetti S/S 2011 show, CND embellished nails with custom designed jewels, stones, pearls, and beads, transforming them into gorgeous cocktail ringsFor cool DIY nail art, try OPI Black Shattera black top coat that creates a crackled effect when applied over dry polish.


  1. I was just deciding what to put on my nails.. pale peach it is! :)

  2. For spring I am always into pastels and bright pinks!

  3. special effects, glitters, peach/apricot tones, and bold jewel hues will be my go to :D


  4. Thanks for the comments ladies, it's funny I loved that 'perfectly bare' and then realized it's not much different than my bare nails, so what's the point of that..still can't resist it thou :)

  5. Haha I agree with you Tracy about the nude polishes. I'm trying to find the perfect nude color that doesn't make it look like I have manikin hands.

  6. Oh wow, such pretty shades! I love nudes and pastels :D

  7. I can't ever seem to find the perfect nude...doing a post on a Revlon one I picked up recently from Big Lots though. The jury is still out on it!


  8. I keep going for this F21 polish called baby pink! love it! xo

  9. I need more pastels and or a nude in my collection...heh.

  10. I'm loving the special effects trend thats so in right now. I want to get some rackle polish but it's always sold out.
