Nail the Look

Liquid_Swatch When it comes to runway fashion, most of us look at the big picture—the outfits, the makeup, the hair—but often it’s the attention to detail that really nails the look. With this spring’s less-is-more attitude, it’s the little things that really make the difference. And if the view from the catwalk is any indication, fun, fresh nails are the finishing touch du jour.

In the Nude
Nude and neutral polishes are a springtime
no-brainer. While still fresh and fun, they’re the least in-your-face
and go with just about anything. Find the perfect shade for your skin
type (or outfit) at, home of New York’s premier nail boutique, Rescue Beauty Lounge.

Mad for Mint
Mint green made serious inroads into this spring’s designer palette. From the catwalk to the boardwalk, expect to see this cool, crisp shade in everything from jackets and cardigans to beads, bags and beyond. The best accessory? An equally cool polish, like Essie’s Mint Candy Apple or the NYC landmark-inspired Liberty from Knock Out Cosmetics.

Lavender Love
Pastels have long been a mainstay of spring fashion, and this year looks to be no different. Save the peach and coral tones for the summer and slip into something a bit more sophisticated like lavender. Color connoisseurs will love Wink, a soft lilac gloss from London-based Illamasqua. Gorgeous in its own right, this cool, confident color is a must-have for the months to come.
