Spring is always a great time to experiment with trends. The pastel trend is not only for clothes, but also your nails! Time to change your dark warm winter shades to more appropriate light and soft spring colors. Some tips to wearing pastel colored nail polish are to keep your nail short and use white nail polish as a base coat. I don't like my nails super short, but slightly longer than my finger. Having long nails might look nice, but aren't always that functional. Keeping nail short, clean, and in a nice shape will allow the color to speak for itself. Using a white nail polish as a base layer for light or even neon colors will allow for the pastel color to really pop. Sometimes with light pastel shades you may have to apply a few layers for the color to really show up. However, having a white base helps prevent adding too many layers, making your nail polish lumpy or becoming bubbly.
Nail polish is a great way to experiment with color, so don't be afraid to take a risk. Wearing a simple neutral color may feel safe, but playing with color is a fun way to completely change your look.
The best part is, if you don't like it, it's easy to change!
