The weather is finally warmer, which means it’s officially open-toe season again. Time to get your neglected tootsies in shape with a pedicure. But if you get frequent manicures, what shades to wear from your tips to your toes? This spring, soft, opalescent shades are an eye-catching and light-reflecting trend. To give your regular favorite shade a reboot, Miss Pop, the nail artist extraordinaire, suggests topping it with a sheer pearlescent shade like Zoya’s Leia, which also looks fresh on its own. Or pick up the holographic shimmer in a mermaid-inspired turquoise and aqua glimmer. Coral, in all its variations from peach to bright salmon, also looks modern again. If you have pale skin, Miss Pop suggests you try China Glaze in Coral Star; for golden skin tones, she recommends NCLA in Candy Necklace. For those with deep ebony hues, she likes CND Creative Play Apricot in the Act.
And remember, you don’t have to play it safe — wearing the same hues on your top and bottom digits is fine, but mixing and matching can be even better. So to start you off, here’s our roundup of the newest and prettiest nail polish shades and pairings of the season.
