Love, love, love the nail colors for spring and summer! Just wish I had a manicurist at my home when I wanna change my nail shade on a daily basis. I suck at polishing my nails, I guess it’s my unsteady hands. I am a fan of the teal L’oreal Club Prive. Better check out these hot shades of color…

The Hottest Nail Polishes to Paint On This Spring
We called up Deborah Lippmann, celebrity manicurist and founder of her namesake nail, hand, and foot care company, to see what polish you should be topping your tips with this season. (Not to mention the best place to wear them.)

Lovely Lavender
“Lilac hues are a great alternative to nudes,” says Lippmann. “This shade is perfect for an interview because it’s understated, yet allows you to still wear a bit of color.”

“What’s fun about a layering a clear, yet glittery polish over any hue is that it can really change up your manicure in seconds,” explains Lippmann. She suggests painting on a top coat like this before heading out to happy hour.

Pure Magic
These magnetic polishes are mind-blowingly cool because they’re blended with metallic particles that move when exposed to the magnetic-filled cap. Translation: You’ll either end up with a super-subtle wave design on your nails (best for work) or a seriously intense one (more for play), depending on how long you hold the magnetic cap over your polish while it’s still drying. Slowly move the magnet around to the left and right simultaneously if you want to change up the patterns.

Fast Fuchsia
The only exception for this bright, fun color: an interview. But once you land the job swap out your go-to classic red shade for this fresh take on crimson, says Lippmann.

They Call It Mellow Yellow…Not
Okay, we get it, you’re not afraid to be noticed. “This fluorescent hue will best suit you surf- or pool-side.” Not exactly a beauty risk taker? “If you’re too afraid to try out this trend on your nails, the best place to experiment is on your toes,” adds Lippmann.

Tamed-Down Teal
We like to refer to it as the out-with-your-girlfriends-green. “It’s fun, flirty, and light-hearted,” says Lippmann. Plus, it can be worn anywhere from the mall to karaoke night with your BFF’s.

A Sure Bet
“This sherbert shade is definitely work-worthy, since it imparts a subtle orange tint onto tips,” says Lippmann. Paint on one coat for a pale peach finish and two for a more opaque effect.

Let Me See Your Peacock
It’s not your average going-out shade, but this blue-green opalescent polish adds a cool twist for tips since it allows them to be edgy without looking too-dark, adds Lippmann.
