Hot Off the Presses

Nails for Every Occasion

The April 2012 issue of Cosmopolitan recommends three different springtime manicures for three occasions — daylight, date night or a girls’ night out.


Consider pastels the new neutrals in the nail world. They allow you to wear a touch of color yet still retain an element of professionalism.

Recommended shades: Nicole by OPI's One Big Happy Fame-ily.


A recent Cosmopolitan poll revealed that men like the color blue on nails. Steer clear of dark, vampy versions and go for punchier shades for spring. If clients are feeling playful, paint one nail — or all of them — with a glitter-packed blue.



Nails with bright bling are popular right now. To copy the runway look seen on the above image, grab a hot pink polish spiked with confetti-like particles. Or give an electric red-orange mani — the hue hybrid is the most statement-making shade this season.

Recommended shades:Essie's Orange, It's Obvious and Zoya's Kissy.
