Spring 2015 Nail & Accessory Trends

Our spring nail color #NailGlossip chat has me dreaming of warm weather and the END OF SNOW! I can not bring myself to tuck jeans into one more boot, or pile on so many layers that I resemble the Michelin Man. Over it.

To get myself in the mood, I’ve been shopping the ShopBop Sale for spring accessories to pair with my favorite nail color trends of the season. I can’t help it, I love accessories because they always fit! No matter what size I am today, I never have to worry about whether I can squeeze into a handbag or pair of sunglasses. Plus, it’s such an easy way for me to inject color into my wardrobe and I really enjoy finding pieces that match my nails.


Ever since Chanel brought Jade into our lives, mint nail colors have continued to come in and out of popularity. I love the shade for spring as it feels so fresh. OPI That’s Hula-rious, which I added to my OPI Hawaii review, is a perfect example. It pairs so well the Rebecca Minkoff Crosby Cross Body, which is a style I need to add to my RM collection.

Dove Grey

I can never have enough pale greys in my life. For some reason, there seems to be a drought of them in core collections. So, when I see a slew of them coming out, I hoard. There are so many great greys right now; OPI Cement The Deal, Nubar Choir Girl, CND VINYLUX Thistle Thicket. While grey accessories are seasonless, dove versions have a clean, spring feel.

I just ordered the Converse Chucks and MICHAEL Michael Kors wristlet pictured below. My old grey Chucks are dead. It was time.

Baby Blue & Periwinkle

Why aren’t there more periwinkle polishes? That is the question, you guys. I always find a blue-based purple or purple-based blue more flattering than the warmer versions. It’s because I’m pale and cool-toned. So, I’m all over these soothing baby blues and periwinkle hues. China Glaze Boho Blues is a bluer version of Secret Peri-winkle. Both are must-haves. And if I didn’t already have a couple RM Mini Macs, I would be all over this one.

Aqua & Turquoise

Probably my favorite color story of the season is aqua and turquoise. They’re dive-right-in, oceanic shades that make me want a beach, pool, or even a sprinkler at this point. As you remember from my Morgan Taylor Cinderella review, Party at the Palace is my aqua everything. In fact, when Nouveau Cheap asked me what one, yes one, color I would wear from now through May, it was my answer.

ps. I scooped up that Botkier bag and RM Happy Hour Cory Pouch. Can’t wait to carry them.

    Hi Michelle, I LOVE this kind of post, pairing nail polish with fashion trends. Thank you so much for creating it for us! And I think you are right on trend with your color choices. My favorite right now are the grays, and I don’t have many and am not used to wearing them as much as I am the more traditional spring shades. How much fun it is to experiment! =)

    I love this post! I want everything with the exception of the Converse chucks. Not my style there. Loving all the polishes and especially the grays! For years gray polish was rare and I had to be content with SH Wet Cement or CG Elephant Walk, so you can imagine my elation when 50 Shades of Gray prompted polish companies to release collections chock full of grays!!! Of course, I got them all.

    • I can’t help it, I love my Chucks. Could wear them every day. I’m glad you stocked up on the new greys. I have a whole drawer filled with LE discontinued greys and I wonder why more brands don’t make them perm.

    I love this post, Michelle! The photography is great! It’s inspiring!

  5. Michelle when you go back to the Sally wall look for a Nina Ultra Pro periwinkle called “Ocean View.” A salesperson had it on and it seemed to glow! Haven’t brought myself to get it for fear of dupes but I am sooo curious!

  6. Also I read in the March issue of InStyle (Kerry Washington on the cover) that poppy or red-orange will be in this spring, and now I’m really drawn to it! Typically I’m a cool red fan.

    Beautiful collection! What do you think about this one? I am lately totally in love with it. :))

  8. Love, Love, Love! Spring is my favorite time for nail trends. I can’t get enough mint or aqua!

    I’ve been away from the nail polish world for a while. I was just wondering why Nubar is crossed out in all of your recent posts. Is it no longer available?

    • Hi Tisha! I use a program to cross out links that aren’t working. For some reason the Nubar site must have been down when you saw this post. It should be okay now.
