Keeping It Neutral: Spring 2016 Nail Trends

When I think spring nail polish, I often think of pale lilacs and bubble gum pinks. But, this year, trendy nail polishes have a more elegant and modern vibe. We are seeing lots of pastel pinks, classic whites and muted grey all over Instagram and the various Fashion Weeks. Want to know which colours are on trend this spring, keep on reading.

Deep Nude

China Glaze’s Sorry I’m Latte is from their new House of Colour collection, which features 12 vastly different polishes. Maybelline Color Show in Latte and Sally Hansen’s Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Bare it All are two other great latte colour that will have your nails looking elegant and on trend this spring.

Blush Pink

Spring is the season of pastel colours. So, it is no surprise that there is a pastel pink in this line up. O.P.I.’s Nail Lacquer in Let Me Bayou a Drink is part of their Spring/Summer 2016 collection: New Orleans.  Julep’s Fifi and Essie’s Ballet Slippers are other pretty pale pink polishes that are a great choice for spring.

Bright White

One of the most classic and cleanest looking nail polish colours is white. A few swipes of polishes, such as Essie’s Blanc, automatically adds a new level of chic and modern vibes to your outfit. Other bright white polishes include O.P.I.’s Alpine Snow and Covergirl’s Outlast Stay Brillant Nail Gloss in Snow Storm.

Creamy Peach

As classic as bright whites and deep nudes are, sometimes, you need a colour that truly screams spring. And that is exactly what you are getting with Deborah Lippmann’s Peaches Creme. The softness of a light peach colour is still classic, but with a bit of colour. Other great options for adding some peach colour into your life are Wet ‘n Wild’s One Step Wonder Gel in Pardon My Peach and Zoya’s Jane.

Muted Grey

Last but not least, we have the boldest and edgiest polish colour on this list, that is still rather neutral: muted grey. Zoya’s Eastyn is a modern and edgy twist on a grey-purple. Other similar colours include O.P.I.’s Taupe-Less Beach and NYC’s Park Ave.
