Spring/Summer 2012 Nail Polish Trends

Essie Spring Collection

Essie's Spring Collection

I’m still waiting for spring!  I know, it will come…in the meantime all I can do is dream about colors.  I have spent most of the past few years wearing blacks, whites, browns and tans so I am looking forward to adding some color this year.  I’ve always added color with my nails but this year I find the colors to be a lot of fun, especially with the Pantone color of the year being Tangerine Tango.  I am an “Autumn” when it comes to what colors look best on me so an orange-red is perfect for me!

PANTONE - Tangerine Tango

2012 Color of the Year Tangerine Tango


I can’t wait to get my first spring manicure with the color of the year!  Butter London, Essie and OPI all have the perfect hues of tangerine.  Butter London’s is called “Jaffa”, Essie’s is called “Orange, It’s Obvious!” and OPI’s is from their new Holland collection and is called “A Roll in the Hague”.
