Orange: The citrus hue isn’t just for lips. I’m obsessed with Harriet, a creamy coral color from Julep ($14). Or take it up a notch with Butter London’s electric Jaffa ($15).
Yellow: This muted yellow from Burberry is kind of a splurge at $21, but it’s a pretty take on a typically loud shade. Want to turn it up? Try Zoya nail polish in Darcy, a bright lemon color ($9).
Green: You can try a pale green like UO Basics Collection Nail Polish in Left Bank ($5). Or go for something a little more vivacious with RGB’s Peacock ($18).
Blue: Achieve an ethereal nail look with RGB’s Cerulean or take advice from the experts at Pantone, who ruled this deeper blue spring’s official color. Julep captures it with Monaco ($14).
Budget-friendly tip: I almost always end up with a splatter-y mess when I try to do my own manis. But weekly trips to the salon just aren’t in the cards for me. I recently discovered Liquid Palisade ($22), which acts a painter’s tape for your nails. The stuff works. You can even use it to create designs like this striped coral masterpiece.
