Trend ALERT! Fashionistas & Jewelry Hounds unite: the hottest nail colors are here to take you from icy showers to May flowers. Check out some of the season’s most covetable hues to mix-and-match with our sassy cocktail clunkers.
1. Coffee with Cream
Silky nudes and creamy coffee hues are classic and easy-to-pair with every one of your work-to-weekend usuals. This pared-down palette is a fave among jewelry hounds because of its endless styling possibilities. Kick it up a notch with a crisp turquoise or bright salmon statement ring. Keep it cool and sophisticated with icy trails of diamonds, white sapphires or Swarovski sparklers. For an edge of modern glamor try with black and white bands. Colored diamonds (esp. Black) are making a major comeback in jewelry this year. Creamy/khaki-hued polish provides the perfect compliment underling this graphic, monochromatic look. From hi-definition cocktail dazzlers to sleek bands, creamy coffee palettes are not only versatile but make for one stylish sidekick to your ring collection.
2. Bold & Full Bodied
From midnight blue to sultry bordeaux, deep saturated nail colors are a bold and elegant compliment to any look. We love pairing them with soft pastels as well as with gleaming gold. For a fun and colorful effect, coordinate with pearly pinks and powder blues. If you’re gettin’ glammed out for a night out on the town and looking to make a dramatic entrance then you’ll need more of a Midas Touch. The snake ring from Just Cavalli (above) is one of our all-time favorites for its sinuous design and Swarovski crystal accents beaming with light.
3. French Manicured Melange
Those ladylike French manicures of yesteryear are getting a gamechanging update. From reverse French tips to velvet embossed finishes ( like the ones featured here) statement nails are making waves. Not to sure how to work this wow-effect look? We advise matching. If glitter tips are something you’re looking to try, then color coordinate with your metals. The rose gold-trimmed ring pictured here goes perfectly with the soft mauve notes.
