    Regardless of which colours you choose to wear this spring, keep in mind that bright and pastel colors tend to accentuate dry cuticles and unevenly shaped nails. This is a perfect excuse to treat yourself to an at-home mani session! If your cuticles are dry and cracked, try a nourishing oil to moisturize, revive and keep those cuticles healthy all year long.

It could be a perfect mess.” Today, at the Kate Spade Spring 2016 show, she brought back the glitter, creating a “cotton candy confectionary splendor” using three polishes: pinky shimmery Magic is the Moonlight ($24), sparkling lilac Whatever Lola Wants ($18), and white creamy Amazing Grace ($18).
