The Nail Polish Colors You'll Want To Wear All Spring
It may not feel like it yet, but spring is fast-approaching. And maybe it’ll feel like it’s here more quickly if you show your nails some love with these colors that are on-trend for spring! One of the biggest trends for Spring 2019 is surprisingly enough a glittery topcoat, as seen on the runways of designers such as Kate Spade, Rodarte, and Tadashi Shoji.
Since we all know that glitter nail polish can be REALLY difficult to get off (I'm pretty sure it would survive the apocalypse), and since this article is about what you’ll be addicted to for a whole season and maybe beyond, these polishes should be safe.
Elvis, by Nail and Bone
Did you know that there are tons of creepy chemicals in a lot of nail polishes? That’s why my recommendation for the first look is the color “Elvis” by the brand Nail &. Bone, which is so much more than simply cute polish! The brand is fantastic for a few reasons - it’s cruelty-free, made in the U.S., and is “8-free,” which means their polish is free of eight chemicals that are found in beauty products that are potentially harmful (formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), toluene, formaldehyde resin, camphor, ethyl tosylamide, xylene, triphenyl phosphate (TPHP). But not only is this polish healthy for you, but it also helps animals stay healthy, too! 30% of the proceeds of this polish go to charities that support pet rescue and adoption!
Marshmallow, by Essie
Bright white is another trend that's not going anywhere. This color looks great on basically everyone, but especially on hands that are getting a bit tanner over the course of spring (or if you are already darker-skinned and love a great contrast)! One of my favorites in this area is "Marshmallow" by Essie! It's a little sheer, so it can give a great “glowing from within” look with a bit of luminosity!
Rosy Glow, by Sally Hansen Color Therapy
Bring on the “May flowers" feel with a bright pink! Sally Hansen’s "Rosy Glow," which is a pop of fuchsia from the Color Therapy line, is also intended to make your nails get healthier, so it has more benefits than just the amazingly fun color!
Grey Day, by Deborah Lippmann
Grey is going to be a hot color for spring, and one of my favorites in this color is “Grey Day” by Deborah Lippmann, which is inspired by the designs of Jason Wu. How sophisticated can one get? I think it’s lovely! It’s a perfect pastel for someone who doesn’t love candy colors but wants to move away from black as the weather improves.
