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 (insert meme of it surviving the apocalypse here), and since this article is about what you’ll be addicted to for a whole season and maybe beyond, these polishes should be safe. 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 US, and are “8-free,” which means they are 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! Thirty percent of the proceeds of this polish go to charities that support pet rescue and adoption!
Bright white is another trend that is 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 is a little sheer, so can give a great “glowing from within” look with a bit of luminosity!
Bring on the “May flowers’ feel with a bright pink! Sally Hansen’s Rosy Glow, which is a pop of fuchsia! 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 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.
Speaking of pastels, they are so perfect for Spring! And one of the hottest colors this year is green - which is why I love “Hangry” by Taupe Coat! Hangry also gives the shimmer that is so popular - a toned down glitter that can still look very professional if big sparkles aren’t your jam! Another thing I love about Taupe Coat is that they are another “clean” brand, and are woman-owned! They also do quarterly charity focuses where they donate either money or time to a local charity in Los Angeles.
Whether it’s bright pink, white, grey, pastels, green, or some sort of sparkle or glitter, there are so many amazing choices to have trendy, fabulous fingertips!
