SPRING TREND: Pastel Nails

Transitioning into next season bright hues doesn't necessarily mean you have to go neon right away. Pastel shades add a pretty complexion. Another reason to try out the muted colors? The soft, Easter- appropriate tints- which dominiated Elie Saab's recent couture collection- are popping up in all the newest Spring polish collections. Here are  the Top 3 pastel colours you need to try!

"Mint green was popular on the runways, and it's a great hybrid colour to get you from winter to spring because it's bright without being too cold. The tone isn't obviously girlie, so you can make it work for a preppy outfit and a rocker chic ensemble- it adds a very subtle feminine punch. Plus, the universal tint well on any skin tone

Lilac can be super fun when combined with neon, but it also looks very romantic when worn with white or cream. Like most purples, lilac can have tricky undertones, but that hue works best on the medium or olive dark skin.

This Spring, its all about dewy skin, flushed cheeks, bright floral pattern and a splash of pink on the nails. Pink fingertips can sometimes look a bit precious, so play with the finish to give it more pizazz. Layer on a glossy top coat. The added shine is more forgiving than a severe matter texture or no top coat at all. Not sure which petal is right for you? Match a polish to your fave lipstick or blush and testing the ttint on your toes first.
