Get Nail-Ready for Spring

Friday, April 13, 2012

While browsing my new favorite time-eating site Pinterest, I found the cutest manicure idea for spring! Here's how to make use of all the pretty pastels this spring:

1. Start by applying a clear base coat to protect nails.

2. Apply our Nail Polish in 'Innocent' to the nails as the base of the French manicure.

3. Once the beige polish dries, carefully apply our Nail Polish in 'Flirty Fuchsia' just around the edges of the nails to create a gorgeous pink French. If you'd like, try doing a rainbow French manicure with a different color on each nail.

4. Once the polish dries, apply a clear glossy or matte top coat for a cool effect.

Share your spring manicure ideas with us!

I like to do a traditional French manicure, then using pink and white (or whatever colors you like) polish I paint a flower on each thumb, with petals fluttering across the other nails. Simple, cute, and easy to do! Doesn't require more then 2 colors either!

I love the look of stripes, especially subtle stripes (using different shades of the same color!). I have yet to try it, but I have seen nails done with a "newsprint" overlay. Super cute!

I am really looking forward to practicing the smokey eye with pastels and funny flirty colors. I tried it last night with light and dark blue, it looked really cool!

I love this! It's a french manicure without being too fancy or too prom-like. Spring colors are always the most fun to work with in nails and accessories.

My favorite spring trend is all the bright colors and brighter lipglosses. I just got a studio gloss in supermodel. It matches me coral nails. And its so fresh.

I love the idea but I always have a hard time getting those edges done. They are always either too wobbly, too thick, or too thin. Any suggestions?
