Spring Has Sprung! My Top Four Colors For Spring 2011

These are my top four colors for spring this year. A few of these you might have seen on different websites or magazines that have ‘the definitive” list of what the hot nail colors are this spring. This year, I took a few of those suggestions and a few of my own. I do wear more colors than the four below, but they are the ones that are in the heaviest rotation, and the ones that I feel really say spring.

Trying New Spring Color: Sally Hansens Xtreme Wear in “Mint Sorbet”

I don’t follow trends for the most part cause I’m lazy, but I decided to try out what is apparently a hot subtle nail color for spring 2011. Pale, milky pastel colors are in and since I have grown to adore the understated look so much, I decided to try a version of the light, creamy green color that is touted as the new neutral hue for spring. I linked an article frpm  hellobeautiful a few weeks ago that had a gave some examples, and I used that as my guide. I decided on a shade from Sally Hansens Xtreme Wear Collection called “Mint Sorbet”.

At first glance, I was like um, no. Definitely not for me. Too pale. Too bland. Too much like dipping my  nails into a bottle of Mylanta. I skeptically painted one nail, and was not feeling it. I pressed on though, and applied the polish to all of my nails.

Dare I say I like it? Cause I do. I really do. What do yall think? Is it a color that you would rock, or not?
