With the warm weather and sunshine Mother Nature's been blessing us with (probably to make up for that eternal winter), painting our digits another shade of nude or black would be a crime. Hey, we've got nothing against our go-to hues, but — yawn. That's why we're so excited to give our tips a springtime update with nail expert Madeline Poole's fresh color combos.
Poole's pairings throw the rules of color coordination out the window. Sparks Fly, a glittery blue, meets a nude Camelflage*, and a turquoise Dive In befriends an eggplant Pat On The Black — all shades from Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure™, Triple Shine™, and I Heart Nail Art lines — and we can't get enough. She's even giving the classic French tip a color update with gray and neon yellow for a mani that's anything but ordinary. Watch above for five totally unexpected, but totally cool, combos that'll give your tips a spring awakening.
*Available in June.
