Spring 2017 Nail Polish Trends

Come on people, you know this weather is not going to last. This is why we are giving you the Spring Trend blogs in a very particular order this year.  First up is nails, because you can take advantage of these trends regardless of the weather. Next up is accessories, because it always takes a while to find the perfect shoe or bag for the season. And by the time we get to clothes, we hope it isn’t snowing in April!

Back to nails. The three major trends we are seeing this season are pastels, metallics and brights. Kyle, the RLS nail guru, has picked her favorite hues for each of these categories. Keep reading. I would trust her if I were you.

By the way, did you know that you could make your own nail polish? Join us at Washington Hebrew’s Ladies Night Out with  Kate Friedman, the author of Mother, Can You Not? and her mother, Kim, on March 16th for free fashion advice and to make your own nail polish in the latest spring colors. Click here for more details on the fun and to buy tickets. Did I mention the Champagne bar?

Pastel Peach

.

Lela Rose  |  Paul Costelloe  |  Jil Sander

.

Pastels are back for spring, so bust out your petal pinks and lavenders. If you’re ready to try a new pastel, paint on a peach shade. It’s safe for work because it reads as a neutral, but the orangey hue will feel fresh for the new season.

Smith and Cult Ghost Edit, $18

OPI Chillin’ Like A Villain, $9

Marc Jacobs  |  Brock  |  Tibi

Grey is another sophisticated neutral for spring, whether you gravitate towards purple-grey, blue-grey or taupe. I just bought the new grey OPI below, “I Can Never Hut Up,” and I’m so excited to try it this spring. It looks slightly minty in this picture because it has a green shimmer, but it’s actually very subtle on.

Moody Metallics

.

Desigual  |  Marchesa  |  3.1 Phillip Lim

.

Metallics have been surging in popularity this year, especially with the recent chrome nails trend. I especially love rose gold and pewter polishes. At Marchesa, the nail artist used Zoya “Claudine,” which is seriously calling my name.

Zoya Claudine, $10

Nails Inc Kings Cross Road, $15

OPI Worth a Pretty Penne, $10

Bold Cobalt

.

Novis  |  Mugler  |  DKNY

.

Cobalt nail polish is such a great option for spring. You can choose a deeper navy, like at Mugler, or a teal-toned shade, like at DKNY where they are wearing Jinsoon “Beau.” However, if you love bright colors for spring, Essie “Butler Please” is the exact tone of the blue in Novis’s gorgeous nail art.

JINsoon Beau, $18

OPI Super Trop-i-cal-i-Fiji-istic, $10

Essie Butler Please, $9
