All fashionistas know the key to making or breaking your outfit is nothing more than adding the right accessories. And for those of you who aren’t quite up to speed, adding the right color of nail polish can be that perfect finishing touch you’ve been looking for. This spring and summer, soft-muted colors are just as trendy as the reds, purples, and plums. So treat your toes right and get them ready for sandal-season.
This season perhaps the hottest color trend is the nudes. Soft colors like tans, beiges, taupes, mauves, and pearls are perfect for any occasion. These pretty feminine colors are great for women and girls of all ages, and make a statement without over doing it. Plus you can wear them for day or night and work or play.
Corals -Light and trendy
Corals are a great way to spice up your look if the nudes are a little understated for you. Corals can include anything from light orange-y colors to pinkish oranges, or even red-ish orange colors. These colors look great on grandmas and grade-school girls alike. They add a trendy touch without making you look too “made up.”
Always popular are the reds. Confident, bold, and daring, these colors are sure to turn a few heads. From cherry red to burgundy red, these colors can bring out the sexiness in every good girl. Great on the fingers and toes, these different shades of red can dress up a drab wardrobe in the blink of an eye.
A bold statement with a tasteful twist, the purples and plums are sure to compliment every skin tone and just about every outfit. Everything from lilac and lavender to berry and burgundy, the purples and plums are sure to please. Wear them for work or play on long nails or short.
Clean & Clear or Fantastically French
Just as the reds always stay trendy, so do the French tips. French tips give a classic look that can be fun for a day off but still professional for work. If you already have nice natural looking nails, skip the French tips and apply a clear coat for a fresh clean but “done” look.
What not to wear
Stay away from whites, metallics, blacks, or colors that are too shiny or overstated. These colors tend to look tacky instead of trendy. Also, pitch your polishes that have sparkles, glitter, gems, and confetti in them. Besides the fad falling out in the 90s, these wild polishes look cool in the bottle but almost never look good on your nails. Plus they are a nightmare to remove.
