Spring Nail TrendsThis season is the time for renewal, and even your nails are on board for a change. Cold weather slows the growth of finger and toenails, and now that the warmer weather is blowing in, you may notice that yours start lengthening a little bit faster than they were before. Plus, brightening up your digits with a little pop of color is the quickest, easiest way to banish all memories of that long, cold, dreary winter. Whether you lacquer up at home or treat yourself to a mani/pedi spa outing with a friend, here’s a roundup of the most fashionable spring trends. Don’t worry: We’ve moved well beyond needing to match your polish to your outfit.

Pretty Pastels: It’s not surprising that Easter egg colors are hot this season, but you may be surprised that women of all skin tones can easily wear them. Select a fresh shade that suits your mood, whether it’s cotton candy pink, cloud blue, or canary yellow. They are all feminine and flattering.

Glitter and Metallic: Making a bold statement with your polish choice may once have been a teenager’s domain, but glitzy digits are now a fashion trend for women of all ages. If you still need convincing, think of it as a flashy arm accessory, like a sparkly bangle bracelet or your favorite statement ring. Try easing into the look by adding just a touch of sparkle to the tips of your nails.

Go green: Pantone selected Emerald as their the Color of the Year for 2013, so you can’t go wrong by flashing a little bit of lucky Irish green. If the shade of shamrocks feels too bold for you, you’ll still be on trend with a paler green tint like mint or lime.

Beige and nude: For women who need to keep their look more professional, you can never go wrong with a subtle, minimalist shade. It’s the go-to look for a conservative workplace setting where you want your ideas to be noticed—not your nail polish. Pale colors also tend to look freshest on women who keep their nails trimmed shorter.
