Hello, all you lovely Posse folks! Hope all of you who celebrate it had a happy Easter, or if not, a beautiful, peaceful Sunday. But there’s also something else to celebrate: Winter is pretty much a done deal by now (for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere), and it’s high time to break out some spring at your fingertips.
I haven’t been wearing polish much at all lately, but the other day I spied a delectable nail color on the corner of my vanity and knew I’d have to get to it. Zoya’s Julie: A prettier, more elegant lilac you’d be hard-pressed to find, and it also has a bit of sparkle, which sets it apart from some of the other lilac/lavenders out there, IMHO. And it looks good on short nails, always a blessing in my case, where some nails wind up longer than others and I struggle to get them all evened up and looking balanced.
I also have some pretty pinks and taupes that I might pull out, now that I’m getting back into the groove of painting my fingertips, and a great coral and an aqua that will be perfect on spring tootsies.
Speaking of feet, Zoya’s Julie may or may not be so terrific on the toes, depending on your skin tone. Although a lovely color, I’m wondering if it’s too soft to make much of an impact, at least on my pasty little feet. And I’m the kind of person who, if I’m going to all the trouble to get my feet done, wants to have something with some oomph to it, especially since I can’t change out colors between pedicures. But it might be fabulous on those of you with darker skin tones.
So what about you? How are you putting spring at your fingertips? Any great shades you’re already rocking or planning to wear soon? Or are you going au naturel or with a pretty French manicure?
