Today is the first day of spring! Which means it’s the perfect time to do a fun, season appropriate manicure.

If you tend to stay in seasonal manicure colors, you can trade in your dark, winter polishes for lighter more feminine crème and sheer nail polishes.

Colors like Where Did Suzi’s Man-go, Kiss Me I’m Brazilian and Toucan Do It If You Try from OPI’s spring/summer 2014 Brazil collection are pink, coral and orange colors that are great for your first spring manicure choice.

Fashion Playground, Romper Room and Spin the Bottle are pastel crèmes from Essie’s spring 2014 collection. These polishes are unique, chic colors that are fashionable and trendy.

Sheer nails have stood out as a spring nail trend in various fashion week presentations and red carpet looks. If you want to go with a sheer manicure look, American Apparel’s Sheer Nail Polish collection features unique, bright blue, green, coral and purple shades.
