Polish Preview Spring 2017: Larger Than Life

Spring is all about big bursts of color, so super-size your polish offerings for warm-weather services. Colors run the gamut from shades of Greenery (Pantone’s Color of the Year), to large amounts of lavender and retro-inspired reds. Whether you sketch out or pin up your ideas for spring/summer nails, make sure you go big or go home.
