Though the "color of the year" is emerald, according to The Pantone Institute, OPI's Suzi Weiss-Fischmann (center, pictured with NAILS' senior editor Beth and myself) told us that she prefers blue for nails. "Blue is easier to wear than green," Suzi told us during an interview at ISSE Long Beach 2013. "Color will be very big for spring."
Does blue not float your (or your clients' boats)? Suzi says that coral is another trendy option that's a great crossover color from fashion to nails.
