We’re not the typical French tip sort of bunch. Instead, we’re always on the lookout for a fresh approach to innovate your nail routine. This season, we’ve turned to the celebs to define our top nail shades. Take a peek at the Hollywood trendsetters who’ve nailed the spring trends. See more 10 photos
1. Azure Tips
Jessica Simpson’s style has been under question as of late, but if anything, she’s managed to keep her nails on trend. However, her cobalt blue tips were a little too complementary when paired with her matching strapless dress. Given that blue isn’t the easiest shade to pull off, we can appreciate her bold decision.
2. Hot Pink
Kim Kardashian puts the hot in pink while making her weekly trips to the nail salon. Neon colors have remained on the spring menu for the last few seasons and 2010 is no different. Even with a million shades to choose from, hot pink still stands out. It’s back this spring and is brighter than ever.
3. All Natural
The nude trend has taken over your closets and now has its sights set on your nails. At the 2010 Kids Choice Awards, Rihanna went for a head-to-toe nearly nude look that stole the show. We couldn’t help but notice her faintly tinted pink nails, which proved that soft and subtle is often underestimated.
4. Sparkle and Shine
Jennifer Lopez has made quite the style turnaround and her nails have also joined the party. At The Back-up Plan premiere, she made a glimmering appearance in a silver Gianfranco Ferré dress and embellished nails. Ditch the typical lacquered tips and opt for a sparkling finish.
5. Mushroom Nails
Stars like Demi Moore have accessorized their glamorous gowns with mushroom-hued nails, while others have shunned the muddy hue. At the height of the neutral trend this murky color has become a top pick amongst celebs. What do you think of the unusual shade?
6. Ebony Tips
Dark nails are no longer reserved for those going for the goth look—just ask Khloe Kardashian. Her gloomy nails have been on-trend for the last few seasons and are holding strong this spring in a variety of somber shades.
7. Minty Fresh
With the pastel movement on the rise, Easter-egg colors dominate nail shades for spring. Soft hues like pale pink and lilac are among the best in show. Drew Barrymore flaunted perfectly manicured mint tips, which added great flair to her look.
8. Classic Red
You can’t go wrong with a classic shade of red. Not only are red lips making a comeback, but fiery red nails are also heating up the season. The City star Olivia Palermo gave the timeless shade a contemporary feel with a short, rounded shape.
9. The Reverse French
Tired of the outdated French manicure? Try the reverse French, which is sweeping the runways. The look is best suited for longer nails as seen on showgirl Dita Von Teese, who’s been donning the look for quite some time now. To get the look, try a white base coat and then experiment with vibrant hues on the tip.
10. Make a Statement
Rihanna is a trendsetter when it comes to all things fashion and her ever-changing nails are also setting the pace. Her bejeweled cheetah-print nails kept her looking glamorous even while donning a hoodie.
