Spring Trends 2014 [Nails]
While snow may still be drifting, my heart is ready for pleated skirts and spring buds on trees.
On my nails: dusty seafoam. A little more subdued than the mint and turquoise of past seasons, it’s optimistic for the season and conservative enough for the workplace.
YSL Jade Imperial: originally released in 2013, this shade was ahead of its time. A bright seafoam cream that’s not quite mint, turquoise or any other shade, it’s opaque in two coats and absolutely stunning.

L’Oreal Safari Chic: a little darker than YSL Jade Imperial, this reminds me of the healing clays and muds of the Mediterranean. It applies opaquely and smoothly in two coats and lasts all week, I’m currently wearing it on my nails and the beautiful formula is changing my mind about drugstore nail polishes.
