From lights to brights, spring tips are bolder and airier than your winter stand-bys, according to Christine Sy, a nail expert at Exhale Spa. "We will see a lot of light pinks, shimmery whites, and pastels this Spring," Sy says, along with darker brights, including blues, greens and rich corals.
Bare it all in bright colors: Last summer and fall, we saw pops of bright colors everywhere, from neon yellow to hot pink and aqua. This spring, be prepared to keep those bright colors alive and kicking, but mix it up a little with blues and greens. Product Link: OPI Suzi Says Feng Shui, $9.
Look lovely in lavender: For those who want a softer look but can't seem to get enough of the purple, you're in luck. This spring we'll see a range of pretty lavender colors on fingers and toes, as another option for a lighter look. "Lavender is going to be a great compliment to purple toes for sweet looking fingertips, or for someone who wants an all over soft shade for their mani-pedi ," Sy says.

Go pale for a soft look: If Spring tends to bring out your softer side, choose a pale hue with a touch of shimmer that'll get just the right amount of attention. A little bit of color and a touch of sparkle can go a long way, and the right pale shade can pair perfectly as the top coat to your French manicure, Sy says.
