Spring Shades

One thing that I always make sure I take great care of, is my nails. When you meet someone and go to shake their hand, it’s one of the first things that’s noticed. All winter, I wore shades of navy blue, gray, and black polishes. At the first hint of sunlight, I switched over to bright polishes. For the last few weeks, I have been loving pastels. They aren’t obnoxious, are appropriate for every situation, and I never get sick of looking at them. More specifically, the Blue Orchid shade from Deborah Lippman’s latest Spring collection. The pastel is an updated trend for spring, and I don’t see it going away anytime soon. What’s your favorite shade to rock?
