Pinteresting Friday Favorites: Spring Nail Edition

Written by , Posted in BEAUTY, INSPIRATION

If you were to ask me where the month of February went, I’d tell you I had no clue. This month seemed like a blur between snow days, the weather, and just being extra busy this past week catching a Broadway play and having yet another report card night. Today, I have a nail appointment with my nail girl, Sophia {read more about her in this post} and I definitely want to incorporate spring colors in my next manicure. On this edition of Pinteresting Friday Favorites, I will share with you some of my favorite spring manicures that are inspiring me this season.

Favorite Mint Manicure: This is the exact same picture I will be showing Sophia today for my manicure. Mint is very hot again this coming spring and with the combination of sparkle, what’s not to love?

Favorite Coral Manicure: Coral is a great color not only for the spring but for summer as well. I especially love this manicure because coral paired with gold make for an excellent and fun combination. This will definitely be one of my manicures at some point this season.

Favorite Ombre Manicure:  This is a great manicure that is not only ombre put pays homage to this year’s color of the year – radiant orchid. Using different shades of orchid and lilac adds dimension and that extra pizzazz to an otherwise clean and simple manicure. I especially like this version because it sticks to lighter shades that are more reminiscent of spring.

Favorite Classic Manicure:  There is something to be said about the classic pink manicure. It matches with whatever you’re wearing and is always a safe bet if you are not quite sure with what to put on your nails. If you want to jazz up the classic pink manicure without getting too crazy, one great idea is to do a half moon manicure. I absolutely love this example below as it is still classy but has enough character and sparkle to make for a great manicure.

What colors are you currently wearing? I’d love any suggestions for future manicure ideas!

Have a great weekend!
