Spring 2013’s Nail Polish Trends

This season, nail colors will be dreamlike and fit for a vintage candy store—beautiful whites and soft pastels with an emphasis on confectionery colors. You’ll also see Iridescent colors, playful patterns, strong retro trends, and small reflective pigments coming into play as well. Here are some of my faves!

Dewey Nudes

A sheer nude shade with a tiny bit of shimmer gives the effect of a dewey finish on nails. Chanel Le Vernis Emprise, $27, chanel.com
