Nail Trends: Spring 2015

Colors

Pantone’s First Pick

In case you missed it, Pantone’s Color of the Year is Marsala, a wine-inspired maroon that reminds us of the ‘90s—in a good way. Grab the color for your nails (and lips) with LAQA & Co.’s Fat Lip Pencil + Nail Polish in Siren Song.

Tonal Greys

Designers like Dennis Basso incorporated greys into their Spring 2015 collections, ranging from a light slate to a darker, gun-metal iteration. Get the softer version with RGB Nail Polish in Steel or opt for Color Club’s Dark and Stormy, a metallic charcoal.

Watercolor Blues

From a bright cerulean to a classic cobalt, the spring runways suggested this calming shade will be everywhere come spring. A couple coats of Color Club’s Take Me To Your Chateau or Ruffian’s Blue Lagoon will transport you seaside. If you’re looking for something bolder, try the Yves Klein blue of alessandro’s Blue Lagoon.

Nail Art

Tribal-style side brushstrokes in oranges or reds over natural nails add a surprising and subtle pop of color without drawing too much attention

Single, metallic studs at the base of the nail—look like pearls from a distance and provide a touch of bling. Start with white or nude polish, an adhesive like eyelash glue can be used to keep stud in place.
