Can't decide? Nude it is.

Wondering what color to put on your nails the next time you're getting a mani/pedi? The big news with nails this spring season: nude is in.

After an excess of neon and oddball colors, the pendulum has swung in the opposite direction with an emphasis on pretty, wearable shades of cream and beige. That’s not to say there aren’t bold patterns and bright moments to be enjoyed - it is spring, after all - but it's all about soft pastels, mellow yellows and all natur-all.

Although I tend to go for the POC (pop of color), nude nails are very wearable. They go with everything. They don't compete for attention against your fucshia lipstick or patterned sundress.

And honestly this trend works on everyone. The idea is to go with a shade close to your skin tone that has a beige undertone to it. I personally like a subtle hue of pink, as the too nudey nail is alittle blah for me.
