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.
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.
Accessories: Botkier Warren Cross Body Bag, Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Suede Sneakers, Kate Spade Small Devin Bag, MICHAEL Michael Kors Jet Set Travel Phone Case, Sam Edelman Eloise Grommet Sandals, Westward Leaning Sunglasses
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.
Nail Polish: China Glaze Boho Blues, CND VINYLUX Creekside
Accessories: Frye Carson Ballet Flats, Italia Independent Denim Sunglasses, Loeffler Randall Lock Clutch, Marc by Marc Jacobs Buckle Up Silicone Bracelet, Rebecca Minkoff Leo Clutch, Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac Cross Body
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.
Nail Polish: China Glaze My Way or the Highway, Morgan Taylor Party at the Palace
Accessories: Ban.do Keychain, Botkier Layfette Cross Body Bag, Dolce Vita Dixin Sandals, Marc by Marc Jacobs Sunglasses, Rebecca Minkoff Cory Pouch, Rebecca Minkoff Rhea Cosmetic Case, Tory Burch Robinson Smartphone Wristlet
