According to Voxxi, sheer nails will be a dominant nail trend this spring. You know a polish is sheer when you can see the bristles of the brush through the nail polish.

Sheer polishes are see-through and don’t really create very bold or vibrant looks. Rather, they are perfect for delicate, soft manicures. One of the standout pros of sheer nail polishes being on trend, is the ability to stay fashionable and still have a professional, business appropriate nail look.

Sheer polishes are very versatile and come in all different shades, most often light neutral or pastel colors. They also often tend to have shimmery or glittery finishes.

The polish featured in the photograph is called Crushed Shells, a Cover Girl Boundless Color nail polish. It is a light pink, with a pretty and glittery finish.

If you’d like to give your own sheer manicure a try, here are some nail polishes to choose from: Bubble Bath by OPI, Peach Sparkle by NYC, Sheer Seafoam by Revol and Purple Diamond by Sinful Colors.
