Nailing 2014 Spring Trends

04/03/2014

With temperatures on the rise, it looks like Spring is finally here! From classic Spring looks (florals, florals, florals!) to more recently emerging fashion concepts (who knew orange could look so good?), discover how to pair this season's trends with some of our bestselling Incoco manicures. And for a limited time, you can enjoy 15% off these twelve best-selling shades with your order of $35 or more.

 

 

HAUTE MINIMALISM

Runway To Real Way: Take a cue from this simply gorgeous look from Narciso Rodriguez: understated and clean, minimalistic dressing is the epitome of chic. Lighten up your dark winter looks by adding Spring white to your outfits and looking for neutrals in cropped styles, airy fabrics, and body-skimming cuts.

Nail The Look: Resist the urge to inject a predictable pop of color with your nails. Keep the look cohesive and effortlessly chic with a classic French manicure, like Cloud Nine, or a neutral shade like Second Nature.

 

BLUSH TONES

Runway To Real Way: Whether your ideal shade is peach, rose, coral, or anything in between, this flattering range of pinks is a tried and true way to wear Spring color. Blush tones emphasize the romance of airy dresses and lend a soft touch to more tailored pieces—Cara Delevingne’s lace Burberry Prorsum ensemble, for example, is more sweet than sultry.

Nail The Look: You can go one of two ways with these soft colors: match it with a Springy design in the same shade family—In Bloom, for instance—or pick a contrasting pastel shade like Down to Earth to keep things interesting.

 

PETAL PUSHERS

Runway To Real Way: After a dreary winter, lush, flowery prints (like this gorgeous Miu Miu coat) are a breath of fresh air. Whether your style is romantic or edgy, there’s a floral to suit your fancy. Love softer looks? Try designs with sweet garden blossoms in light colors. For ladies who dig bolder florals, look for tropical blooms in wild colors.

Nail The Look: Let your pretty prints stay in the spotlight and keep your nails simple. Classic pink keeps tips polished without being distracting—try Rose Tea or Spring Romance.

 

ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK

Runway To Real Way: Orange has gotten a big makeover in recent years—an exploration of this standout shade and pretty, eye-catching patterns have turned this bold color choice into a warm weather go-to. Dip your toes into the trend by choosing a softer persimmon color with bright accents, like this Tracy Reese look. 

Nail The Look: Pair softer shades with a bold design like Catching Rays. Going for a vibrant color and afraid of orange overload? Try a neutral shade, like Ready to Wear.

 

METALLICS

Runway To Real Way:  It’s a well-known fact that metalic dresses and accessories instantly up the glam factor of any outfit—so why not rock gold, silver, copper, and other shimmery pastels and neutrals year-round? Take the looks to Spring by swapping wool and heavy knits for linens, laces, and cotton blends in body-skimming and cropped styles, a la this effortlessly elegant Tory Burch look.

Nail The Look: Try a tone-on-tone manicure or go for a mixed metal look – if you love gold, our glittery 24 Karats appliqués will do the trick. Prefer silver? We’d like to introduce you to our glitzy Bling Bling Tips.

 

BOLD HUES

Runway To Real Way: What better way to turn heads than with vibrant color? Go for a head-to-toe look with a vibrant ensemble in the color of your choosing, like this dazzling number from Christian Siriano. Keep accessories simple and minimal, and let your clothes do the talking.

Nail The Look: Make your nails as bold as your outfit by wearing red on your digits. Passion is a cool, classic red; Sunset is its equally timeless, warm counterpart. Wary of red nails with red dresses? Don’t be—bare arms keep the look chic.
