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

Pale Cloud Blue

Wear it to brunch or on your wedding day—either way, we’re going to bet you get a lot of compliments on this soft blue shade. Oscar de la Renta Larimar Nail Lacquer, $22, oscardelarenta.com

Sugary Baby Pink

This shade instantly reminds us of bubblegum—and all things confectionery. Wear it to sweeten up any tough-girl outfit.

OPI Nail Lacquer in In the Spot-Light Pink, $7, trendyhands.com

Softly Muted Purple

This toned-down purple polish looks good against any skin tone and will be the perfect accent to your new pastel floral pants for spring. Maybelline New York Color Show in Iced Queen, $4, drugstore.com

Earthy, Muted Beige

An opaque tan crème nail lacquer is a great alternative to a sheer nude shade, especially if you’re craving a touch of color. Butter London Nail Lacquer in Cuppa, $15, butterlondon.com

Pearly Sheens

This candy-colored blue lacquer offers up a semi-sheer, pearly finish with one coat. It’s also a clutch color to wear with denim. Swoon. Deborah Lippmann Moon Rendezvous, $17, lippmanncollection.com

Putty

A barely there shade that resembles putty is the go-to interview color; it’s also a signature polish that will leave you looking seriously put together. CND Nail Polish in Putty, $9, cnd.com

Iridescent Green

Bold iridescent shades like this one can stand alone against an outfit. Translation: No need to wear that statement necklace or ring. Sally Hansen Lustre Shine in Scarab, $8, drugstore.com
