I think I can speak for all of us when I say that this last winter was rough. ROUGH. Well, fellow New Yorkers, spring has sprung—and today, we’ve got the 60 degree temps to prove it. Not only does spring mean warmer weather and more daylight, it’s when fashion comes alive. Bulky, shapeless sweaters give way to bright sundresses—and finally, finally—we can wear sandals once again!
But before you slip on your favorite pair of peep toes, make sure your feet are in tip-top condition. One easy trick to get your toes ready for the season—bright nail polish! Check out our favorite picks for spring below.
Garden Variety by Essie ($8.50)
As much as we love navy nails—they’re dramatic without veering into goth-black territory—this new creamy, teal shade is taking over as the frontrunner in the blue family.
Ethereal by wHet ($15)
Calling all brides! For the perfect pink shade that you can feel good about wearing down the aisle (it’s vegan and free of harmful chemicals), we’re loving this light and airy hue.
Alexa Hearts Polish by Nails Inc. ($16)
Love is in the air, so why not put it on your nails as well! This eye-catching formula features tiny red hearts set in a clear polish. Wear it alone for a pop of romance or layer it over another shade (like creamy white or pale grey) for a whole new look.
Ladies that like standing out from the crowd will love this new snake-inspired collection by Christian Louboutin. Long wearing and chip resistant, they’re the perfect statement shades to wear day or night—and with bottles this fierce, you’ll definitely want to leave them out to be admired.
Picked Perfect by Essie ($8.50)
When you’re wearing a brightly-colored outfit (and hello, you totally should be now that it’s spring!), neon nails can look too over the top. The solution: a neutral caramel brown shade with a hint of red-violet.
