9 Spring Manicure Shades That Prove Blue Is the Warmest Color

blue-nail-polishes

Lately, we’re feeling blue. The expressive color has taken over spring makeup bags everywhere, and we can’t help but notice that the hue has also migrated to many a set of chic fingernails. This isn’t the angsty cyan that graced your rebellious, un-manicured hands in the mid-’90s, however—the new blues are softer, more delicate, and all-around gorgeous.

For a sophisticated take on the modern blue nail, “opt for a squoval shape on short or medium nails,” says New York City manicurist Jin Soon Choi, referring to a hybrid of square and oval. “In general, blue polish is very easy to wear since it is flattering on almost all skin types.” But those with lighter complexions, take note: “Faded pigments will clash with pale skin, so choose a darker polish,” says Choi. (Her favorite? JINsoon Nail Lacquer in Cool Blue.)

From Burberry’s Stone Blue (a stormy, understated azure that’s surprisingly easy to sport) to Essie’s Nama-Stay the Night, an energetic, bold cobalt that’s bound to be your number one summer staple, here are nine vibrant polishes to wear right now.
