Our 10 Tip-Top Nail Polish Colors For 2010

Let's just say we're not a French tips sort of bunch. Instead, we're always looking for fresh inspiration to shake up our nail routine. In fact, we turned to the runways--and to some local experts--to draw up our newest line-up of shades to obsess for the coming spring. Statue-of-Liberty green, bright persimmon, and confetti-like gold, are just a few of the swatches we're adding to your list. As nail aficionado Regine Berthelot of Caudalíe Vinotherapie Spa at The Plaza adds, "people are getting really excited about humungous sparkles, and Deborah Lippmann's Happy Birthday has become the most requested shade alongside NARS' Blue Lagoon. We are also seeing loads of bold, opaque liquid metallic shades." To discover more tippy-top shades, just snap your fingers...and click here!
