Spring Polish Trends for 2011

Spring promises changes, new beginnings and warmer weather. Of course it also means new polishes colors will be put on the forefront and flaunted. Typically in spring there are tons of sheer polishes, pretty pinks, and of course pastels. The Warmer the weather the brighter the seasons colors.

Nudes Look simple and chic with this cool color trend. These neutral shades are still popular and perfect for french manicures or when you dont want your nails too loud, while still looking natural and clean. Try Priscilla by Zoya and Pile by Rescue Beauty
Violet Diva From Estee Lauder

Malia By Zoya

Shape of My Heart from Deborah Lippmann

Lilacs This winter was not too big on purple so Im glad its coming back more into style. Matte and cream shades are in and keep the nails shorter with this look so it dosnt loo too over the top. Think sweet and delicate shades Purple Mix by Dior, Nice is Nice from the Essie 2011 Spring collection and Purple Mix from Dior Vernis
Gris Montaigne by Dior Vernis
Lady Muck from Butter London

Grays usually this time of year we see pastels and lighter color palettes and lighter brighter schemes come into play. Well this season the trend of grey tones in polish continues which is good for me because of I love them. Cream bases will go with anything but you can always have fun with shimmery shades. Tuxedo Grey by Yves Saint Laurent La Laque Long Lasting Nail Lacquer Gris MontaignePerfecto By Dior Vernis and Wild Storm by Estee Lauder and Dracula Orchid by Pritinyc
Secret Perriwinkle By China Glaze
Butter London's Artful Dodger 
Crown of Thorns from PritiNYC

Pale Blues When I think of spring I think of plants starting to grow and baby birds chirping. Robins egg and pale blue (think tiffanys box's). Lighter and brighter blues will look nice in neat with cream bases or these shades do look nice with some glitter or shimmer. So go and show off your baby blues! Glitter in The Air By Deborah Lippmann, Artful Dodger by 3 free from Butter London, and Baltic Blue from Le Métier de Beauté Nail Lacquer
Pink Boa by Dior Vernis

Priti nyc's Orange Glow

Pink Slip from Orly

Peachy Pinks Add a punch of color to your nails and say good bye to darker more wintery shades. Think flowers and fruit. Shimmery and sheer is a good finish for these colors over natural nails or try creamy opaque colors look chic. They still can look really chic and natural but add a little color. Try Jaffa and Pink Ribbon by Butter London 3 free Starfish-Patrick By Rescue Beauty Lounge, and orgasm and Pussy Galore by Nars

Zoya's Jules

The Full Monty from Butter London

Deborah Lippmann's Boom Boom Pow

Golds Try using a super rich looking shimmer or frost shade to look elegant. Im not really a huge fan of gold especially when it looks to heavy or too much like chirstmas. But if done right it can look super cool for warmer weather. More delicate lighter hues can be better with a shimmer or frost finish look. For this trend remember think fine, not chunky glitter. Go for Desperado By Nars' spring 2011 and The Full Monty from 3 free by Butter london

Sand Tropez

The other day I went to Rite Aid after work saw Esssie's Spring collection out. The collection its self is called a french affair and has some cute colors for spring and warmer weather. Topless and Barefoot and NIce is Nice stood out to me but the color I went for immediately was Sand Tropez.

The color its self is a nice creamy beige color. The polish is nice and opaque with two coats and the color is very cute and creamy. I honestly adore this color and the nude color is perfect for spring.
