Nail Trends S/S 2011

   Chicago didn't get the memo on Spring yet, but one can always hope! As we get ready to say hello to spring, say goodbye to your winter nails. The bright pinks, soft pearls and neutrals are pushing away last winter's navys, blacks, and dark greens!
 Here are some of the colors I like for Spring and Summer this year!

Pretty Pinks

Pink is IN in a big way! Beautiful shades of Pink and Fuchsia, Rose and Peony and just the hint of blush in the enamel will make you giddy with joy, and your nails ready for spring! 

Style Delights Droolworthy Pick- Dior Vernis
Pink Boa $21

                                Shiny Pearls and Champagne

For a sophisticated clean look, go for the neutral shades of Pearl and Champagne. Powder lilac and  pastel peach shades are in vogue for this spring

Style Delights Droolworthy Pick Chanel Vernis
Pearl Drop $25

                      Corals, Oranges and Jewel tones
I have been seeing Coral and Orange colors back every spring for past couple of years. This year too they are back. These shades look specially great with white summer dresses or beige/neutral outfits! 
Jewel tones are in this spring for clothes and shoes. You can shine your nails too with deep jewel tones! Revlon has a beautiful line of jewel tone scented nail enamels.

Style Delights Honorable Mention - Orly Nail Lacquer
Crush On You $ 7.50


           Serene Aqua Blues

Set the stage for summer with these ocean blue colors. I love the opaque finish in the blue lacquers.

Style Delights Droolworthy Pick - Hello Kitty Liquid Nail Art
Blueberry (Perriwinkle blue) $10 

Timeless Red

If you want to go against the trends, I'd bet my money on the Red. Don't match the red lips with red nails though!

Style*Delights Droolworthy Pick- Yves Saint Laurent
Sublime Red Nail Lacquer $20

So, now you can have spring on the tip of your fingers even when the temperature in your city still hovers around 30s!! Happy painting:-)
BTW, whats your favorite shade??:-)

  1. My kinda post :-) Thank you!!!
    My all time favorites are any shades of Pink (so I am definitely well stocked there!) and red (good to go there too!).

    I will be exploring Corals, Oranges and Jewel tones this spring. Thanks for the tips.


  2. While I love the orange, I can't pull it off without looking ridiculous with my skintone. Pale pink is my go to color. The blues are beautiful too.

  3. I love Blues too! These days my favorite is pearl though!

  4. I am such a fan of nail polish, you have no idea!
    I could use every color in the world, but i don´t use pale colors that much!

  5. Bright colours are just not me. I prefer the pearls and the pale tones...
    Nice post!
