Spring Pastels Great on Short Nails

According to Allure magazine, "new lacquers in colors such as mint and robin's-egg blue look tempting on short nails." Clients and nail techs have an array of new pastel colors to choose from.

Nail tech Sheril Baily tells the magazine, "Avoid pastels with lots of shimmer, which can look tacky." She adds that for sallow or fair skin, go with lavender or pink instead of yellow and green.

Featured colors are, from left to right: Essie in Van d'Go; Orly in Gumdrop; Yves Saint Laurnent in Mauve Silk; Sally Hansen in Yellow Kitty; Maybelline New York in Pie in the Sky.
