When you think of accessories, what comes to mind first? When we think of accessories, we dream of chic, colorful handbags (big shocker, right?!) and perfectly manicured nails. During the Spring 2013 runway shows, we noticed models sporting trends that are beyond-perfect for the seasonal nail scene, and we thought we’d share our observations.
Check out these top five shades, each perfectly paired with one of our fabulous bags!
Nude, Nude, Nude!
Ever consider going bare? Nude nails were huge on the runway, but this doesn’t mean you have to go naked! Opt for a glossy, nude shade, much like NARS Candy Darling. And how fun is this Hailey Studded Leopard Bag? Right on trend with studs and animal print embellishments, this bag is a perfect addition to your collection this spring!
Walk on the Dark Side
While lighter shades typically come to mind in the spring, this season is posing to be a year of darker colors — with emerald at the top of the spectrum! From dark greens like this Butter London to black and slate gray, darker shades are one nail trend to give a try this spring. And this sleek Cheryl Structured Bag offers a perfect mix of emerald shading, color blocking, and metallic touches for the working gal!
(Psst…Are you loving emerald as much as us this season? Be sure to shop The Color of the Year in our special handbag collection!)
Whether you opt for a set of all 10, just one accent nail per hand, or embellishments such as metallic tips or stripes, the metallic nail is another fun trend to be aware of for spring. From sparkly silvers to bronze and pale gold like Essie’s Good as Gold, this is one trend to get excited about! And don’t you just love this Samantha Quilted Handbag? So magnifique.
Bright Like A Diamond
When the weather begins to warm up, you can always count on brights to make a return! This season, brights of all colors are a go, from blues and greens to punchy reds, much like this OPI My Chihuahua Bites. Smaller handbags and mini satchels are also on-trend this season. We just adore this Jennifer Patent Mini Satchel — the perfect purse for a spring getaway!
Well this is one we haven’t seen in awhile! Bright white polish is making a comeback, and we have to say that we’re happy for its return! Whether you choose a flat shade or something with a little sparkle, this cheery color is perfect for spring. And this Elizabeth Top Handle Tote is a perfect match! With its two-tone exterior and fun, metallic embellishments, this is one bag that we’re dying to keep for ourselves!
