Our Favorite Spring Nail Shades

Spring is here and around our office we couldn’t be more excited. Soon we’ll be able to shed our jackets, see greener landscape out our windows and enjoy a patio lunch. There’s nothing like feeling refreshed.

I polled our the fabulous girls behind our website and social media team to find out how they’re rejuvenating their nail colors for these brighter days. Our favorite colors right now include some gold tints and pastel hues.

Our Favorite Spring Nail Shades #SallyBeauty Our staff picks (L to R): Stardust Blush, In A Lilly Bit, Thistle Do Nicely,
Spring In My Step, Amazon Amazoff, Luxe, Rockin’ Renaissance


“My obsession with all things rose gold this spring knows no limits, which is why I’m loving Stardust Blush from the FingerPaints Shredded Chromes collection. It hits all the musts on my list – the perfect shade, a sparkly finish and a fantastic formula.” – Lindsey, Social Media Manager


“Currently my favorite Spring color is China Glaze In A Lilly Bit. It’s a lighter shade of purple that’s almost neutral, but still pastel.” – Donna, Social Media Content Coordinator


“China Glaze Thistle Do Nicely has just the right amount of sweet coral to welcome spring, and a hint of fiery red to give winter the boot.  It’s the perfect accessory for any spring outfit without looking like a walking Easter egg.” – Kayla, eCommerce Merchandise Coordinator


“My current nail crush is OPI Amazon Amazoff – it’s the definition of a perfect teal with a hint of shimmer.  It adds a pop of color to my usual all black attire, and is a constant reminder of my Hawaiian vacation in a few months!” – Kirsten, eCommerce Site Merchandiser


“You can’t go wrong with Spring In My Step from the City Flourish Collection! The name itself gives a shout out to the season. It’s a great neutral color that complements nicely the bright hues I plan on donning this spring.”
Cami, Email Deployment Coordinator


“My go-to nail shade is Orly Naughty in the winter months. As the weather turns warmer and my wardrobe starts to include shades of coral and blue, I turn to Orly Luxe. This shimmery, warm, metallic shade is the perfect accent for the brighter shades of Spring.” – Shana, eCommerce Site Merchandise Manager


“I’m really into the nude colors this spring.  I love to pair them with FingerPaints Rockin’ Renaissance.  It’s a pale pink textured glitter that goes well with most nude colors or by itself.” – Susan, Sr. Search Marketing Manager

Neon Nails

Nails-page8For this look we took two of the hottest nail trends (neon colors and white polished nails) and combined them for a fun, easy manicure. Let’s get started!

Supplies needed:
Neon polishes (I used the Orly Brights Collection. In stores now!)
White polish
Artist striping tape (Found in any art supply store.)
Top coat

Step 1:
Paint each nail a different neon shade of your choice. Neon polish is thin by nature, so this could take several coats to get it as opaque as you want. Let dry completely.

Step 2:
Arrange striping tape in whatever pattern you desire. It’s easiest to do this one nail at a time.

Step 3:
Paint an even coat of white polish over the tape. As soon as the nail is covered, remove the tape. It leaves cleaner lines when you take it off while the polish is wet. Repeat for each nail.

Step 4:
Swipe a coat of your favorite top coat and enjoy these gorgeous, trendy nails!
