The birds are chirping, the sun is shining and beautiful weather is finally settling in. Welcome to Spring. Now’s the perfect time to update your manicure to reflect the new season.

The new brights (like yellow and blue), nude and prints are the top choices for your tactile members (aka fingers). Check out our faves:

1. Black and Yellow

Well, really just yellow. Get big and bright nails with Chanel’s Mimosa ($25.00) nail polish, the lemony color of the moment. This lacquer brings full-on sunshine with extra yellowy pigments for a burst of bright on your fingers. $25, chanel.com.

2. Fresh Prints

Sally Hansen’s adored Salon Effects in “Check, Please” is one of the newest additions to their already popular collection. These nail polishes turned into stickers will make everyone think you had your nails professionally done. The best part? They’re mistake-proof! Stick them on and file the excess sticker away. $10, walgreens.com.

3. In The Nude

Vegan-friendly, sister-owned nail polish company Ginger & Liz, always impresses us with their young, stylish shades. Their latest polish, “Brown Sugar Baby” is the perfect nude for the summer months. Close to a cappuccino shade of color, this nude is perfect for deeper skin tones. $12, gingerandliz.com.

4. Time to Shine

Dolce & Gabbana Nail Lacquer in Platinum is a pewter gold hue with a metallic finish and silver shimmer. It’s delicate enough for the day but bold enough to transition into night.  And with just one coat, this warm lacquer show its fullest pigment. $20, saksfifthavenue.com.

5. Rhythm & Blues

Essie’s Spring 2011 collection, “The French Affair” has the most airy, beautiful French-inspired colors. One color that stands out the most, is Coat Azure. This powdery blue polish with a shimmer finish is stunning and boasts a subtle brightness that’s ideal for Spring. $7, essie.com.

    Mimosa is by far a beautiful color on darker skin tone. I love it.

  • I love Essie’s Coat Azure (not Azure Coat, BTW). The color is FABULOUS. In fact, I did a review on it, “Love at First Sight.” Click here to see it http://pearlsandpolish.blogspot.com/2011/04/love-at-first-sight.html

    • Yes, I have Essie’s Coat Azure, such a beautiful color. If you are going to suggest a product, do it right! smh
