Best Spring Polish
Spring is finally here, and we think it's time for a polish change! From bright neons to pretty pastels, we've selected our favorite shades for the season. Get ready to pack away your dark and dusty nail polishes because it's time for some new hues to make their grand debut!
Our favorite new polish from Orly's Cool Romance collection is Jealous, Much?, as it offers a palette-cleaning punctuation to all of the season's sweet and ladylike looks! More pastel than Chanel's Jade polish from seasons past, this pretty mint hue feels fresh and will surely be a shade you'll wear all season long.
Leave it to OPI to come up with the most insanely cool, shocking pink polish for their S/S 12 Holland collection. The vibrant, blue-based pink is the perfect nod to Schiaparelli--and the Metropolitan Museum of Art's impending exhibition featuring the designer's and Miuccia Prada's work--plus it's actually quite flattering on almost any skin tone!
Chartreuse is one of our favorite colors right now--thanks, in no small part, to Oscar de la Renta's S/S 12 show--so perhaps that explains why we're so in love with Revlon's Zealous! The shimmering lacquer lends itself to an endless amount of pairings, so whether you're wearing a bright pink top or cobalt trousers, you'll have a winning look every time!
As one half of YSL's new set of limited edition Manicure Couture duos, this slightly iridescent polish is the ideal pick if you're not ready to tackle neon polish, but don't want to go with a pastel. Subtly powerful, this garden-inspired green is the perfect lacquer to ground spring's more outrageous floral prints
With warm weather and lots of sunshine in the forecast, we think a bright shade of orange is an excellent choice to celebrate the season. A lively tangerine hue like Essie's Action--it hits stores this May--is sure to leave a lasting impression and would complement both neutral and bright outfits alike!
