Pantone's Rose Quartz, a pretty light pink, was made for a classic mani. Grab Smith & Cult's Pillow Pie when you want the your-nails-but-better look, or something you can wear right into spring when pastels truly take center stage.
Sharing the spotlight with Rose Quartz in 2016 is Pantone's Serenity, a calming periwinkle blue. Try two coats of Floss Gloss Nail Polish in 95% Angel for an unexpected pop of color that doubles as a visual chill pill.
The holiday season was all about traditional candy-cane reds, but 2016 is toning down the sweetness and adding a little bit of spice to the mix. Swap your fire-engine and Santa suit shades for lacquers with hints of rust and copper, like Color Club Thats My Jam.
According to the runways, there hasn't been a better time to go grey. Everything from matte slates to shiny silvers dominated Fashion Week, proving it's the new neutral. We're fans of grays with an on-trend taupe finish like ncLA Swim Club in Golden Coast.
##Electric Jewel Tones
If you're looking for a statement-looking shade, turn up the volume with rich sapphires, emeralds, and amethysts. Our current favorite: Nails inc. NailKale Nail Polish - Richmond Park Gardens, a bold sapphire that has more pop than a dark navy and just enough sheen to step it up without going full-on metallic.
