Embrace the spring with new colored polishes and purses. Add that subtle accent to maximize the season’s fresh new looks.
It’s time to break out of the dreary clutches of winter and walk into spring with open arms- adorned with the appropriate seasonal polishes and purses, of course. Now that your hands are free from the clutches of their gloves and your arms are free of bulky layers to weigh them down, it’s time to show them both off again. While winter is not completely monochrome and it is perfect for shimmery metallics and jewel-tones, spring is about livening things up and adding some fresh new color.
The 2014 pantone color of the year, radiant orchid, is a great place to start. Adding this bright and lively shade to your nails can do wonders to an ensemble. It will instantly brighten up any look and will add a splash of color. It also works wonderfully as a clutch. An accessory like this is subtle but eye catching, and can be manipulated easily. Clutches may be small but they can easily be added in or out of an outfit depending on your mood, but always make for an easy addition. Even colors that are not quite orchid, but are close, such as a traditional rich purple, will work wonderfully. Whether you wear it on your nails, in your hand, or both, this color adds a bit of springtime freshness to any outfit.
Emerald greens are perhaps the most traditional and expected colors to emerge during this season. After all, the snow finally melts to reveal the soon-to-be-green grasses and the trees reclaim their leaves. This color takes center stage and is the focus of rejuvenation come springtime. Whether you go for deeper tones or more pastel ones, green is a safe and appropriate color for the season and goes wonderfully with other neutrals and even other pastels.
But not everything has to be bright and colorful to look fresh. Grey is a fabulous neutral for the season, it isn’t as dark and overwhelming as black and acts as a middle ground between that and brighter whites. Just like any other neutral, wearing grey really provides a great canvas for showcasing other colors. Especially when you plan on mixing and matching nails and a handbag. Grey nails are great because they match any outfit and can accent any handbag, but grey clutches and purses really allow freshly painted nails in reds, greens, purples or pastels to really shine.
Both of these handheld fashion options are great ways to step into spring. They may seem small and subtle but they can go a long way and still make a statement.
