Nail Polish Trend Report {Spring 2016}

Taking a page out of Pantone’s book, this year’s spring color trends are filled with peaceful & tranquil shades and pops of vivid brights. Along with Rose Quartz and Serenity, I’ve pulled together a few polishes that I’m loving for spring!Spring 2016 Nail Polish Trend Report // Novels and Nail PolishRose Quartz & Serenity Spring 2016 Nail Polish Trend Report // Novels and Nail PolishPale pink and pastel periwinkle are perfect colors for spring, and they also happen to be Pantone’s 2016 Colors of the Year. My favorite selections for these two colors are Essie Bikini So Teeny – no surprise here! – and Julep Martha.

Coral & Turquoise Spring 2016 Nail Polish Trend Report // Novels and Nail PolishThese are two of my favorite colors to wear from spring into summer. They are slightly more vibrant than my first two picks, but are still subtle enough for these next couple months. wHet Nails Hubris and Julep Alyssa are spot on for this trend.

Pops & SparkleSpring 2016 Nail Polish Trend Report // Novels and Nail PolishPantone’s Spring Trend Report noted that bright pops are the perfect contrast to the otherwise very calming and tranquil spring selections. Enter, Butter London Cheeky Chops, the ultimate combination of pastel and bright yellow. Another popular trend this season is jewel tones, like the gorgeous Essie Starry Starry Night. And if you’re feeling adventurous this spring, glitter top coats, like Julep Melody, are perfect to add a little something extra to your manicure.

Nail Polish Favorites // Spring 2015

SPRING! My favorite season is finally upon us, and I am overly excited for the gorgeous nail polish trends this year.

I am so inspired by the Pantone collection, En Plein Air, for Spring 2015. It’s a gorgeous blend of soft pastels and understated bright shades that you’d find in florals & nature, and ultimately will stand out beautifully on your nails. We seriously can’t do wrong with any of their choices. You know who else has channeled this trend TO PERFECTION? Essie’s collab Spring 2015 Collection, Flowerista, with Rebecca Minkoff.

I could continue to rave about how passionate I am when it comes to the absolutely gorgeous colors gracing nails this season, but how about I just show you?

Marsala – As Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year, Marsala is rich and robust, which lends itself to great manicures. I love Mint’s Moonlit Stroll as the perfect, wearable version of this trend. It has so many dimensions, and when I have it on, I can’t keep my eyes off it!

Nude – If you ask me, a good nude is always on trend no matter the season. When you’re looking during spring, you need a nude that brings new life and depth into your wardrobe in the same way the earth begins to find life again after winter. If you’ll bear with me, I’m about to start my lovefest over Essie’s spring collection! Picked Perfect is one of two nudes in their new collection, and this guy specifially is a warm almond shade I’ve fallen in love with.

Teal – I’ve already mentioned how much I love Essie’s Spring Collection this year, so obviously my teal of choice this season is Garden Variety! There is no lack of pigment here, and if you want a punchy, funky teal, you’ve come to the right place.

Grey – I always crave a nice grey with blueish undertones for spring. It really is the ultimate color that allows brighter, more showstopping shades to take center stage. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, Essie’s Petal Pushers is perfection! Another home run for their spring collection.

Dusty Pastels – Whether it’s blue, pink, purple or green, pastels shine brightest during the spring. This year, I’m extra loving the dusty versions of these soft shades. Julep’s Shelly, a dusty mint, has been the apple of my eye for the last couple months, and I can’t wait to continue to wear it through the spring months!
