Brighten Up With Spring Nail Trends!

By Dana Farber — April 01, 2012

April Showers? Pah!  There’s nothing like a good mani-pedi to brighten up your mood even on the gloomiest day.

My latest obsession is nail polish. Well, I shouldn’t say “latest”. But I’ve recently re-discovered my love for it, and at the perfect time too!

Nail polish now comes in every color imaginable, so this is a great time to have fun and experiment and maybe try out a color (or two, or five!) that you may not have thought about wearing before.

Which brings us to these amazing shades below. Here at zuuzStyle, we are always looking for hot trends, and we have noticed bright nails all over the place from fashion blogs, to our favorite magazines, out in the street and on celebrities.

Here’s what we think are the 3 hottest spring nail trends:


Oh, how we girls just looove the shiny, sparkly, glimmery stuff!  Regardless of what it is, if it has glitter on it, I’m sold. What’s great about glitter nail lacquers is that it can go over any color you want to spruce up even the most neutral shade. You’ve got the glow now, baby!

I’ve noticed that almost every Spring 2012 nail polish collection has had at least one shade of purple. Me likey. From the lightest lilacs to the richest royals, these colors will add some ‘pop’ to any outfit!

And last but definitely not least, we have the oh-so-lovely pastel colors. Pastel nail colors remind me of pretty little easter eggs. Am I the only one? OK fine, maybe I am, but you can’t tell me that pastel colors don’t remind you of spring!

So soft and airy, a great pastel nail color is the best way to make a statement that spring is here and you’re (fashionably) ready!  Well, at the very least your nails will be ready for spring even if you’re wardrobe isn’t. Just glance over at your perfectly painted nails and – boom! – instant pick-me-up! See?

    I am loving the pastels! I saw a similiar color to the Sally Hanson one above in a light sea foam green and I am crazy over it! I usually go for the glitter polishes but the color I just mentioned seems to be the "IT" color of the season for me! :-)
