Nailing Spring Trends
With major fashion houses dabbling in make-up, sampling spring trends is as simple as buying a bottle (or two) of nail polish.
Dior’s Garden Party collection includes fresh minty Waterlily as well as a vibrant lilac named Forget-Me-Not. Both the purple and green lacquers mask the usual chemical scent with a flowery rose aroma. $24 at The Bay, www.thebay.com
Chanel’s appropriately named April, May and June nail colours are the epitome of the upcoming seasons biggest trend that will have us all wearing vibrant pinks and tangerines. Start with the darkest shade in April and work your way to pretty peach for June. $27 at Holt Renfew, www.holtrenfrew.com
Yves Saint Laurent is sticking with colour blocking with its duo manicure set. Choose a colour pair — brown and mint or pink and orange — use one as the base coat and one for your tips. $32 for each pair at Holt Renfrew, www.holtrenfrew.com
We’re pointing our fingers toward spring trends. —Jaelyn Molyneux
