It’s a gorgeous day in NYC and tomorrow marks the first day of Spring—finally! That being said, we want to be sure to update you on all the hottest trends of the season. We have already encouraged you to embrace floral attire, tarte’s new gel lip stains have become an instant hit & next up is the spring polish du jour—opaque putty!

 This spring the beautifully edgy shades of putty, mauve, gray, mushroom (take your pick)are the perfect complement to any outfit & skin tone. The look first caught my eye when MAC launched its Hello Kitty collection last year including the original lacquer ‘On The Prowl’. Although gray is often a dismal shade, this spring it’s the perfect contemporary twist to played out pastels. The trend covers a nice range of mushroom hues & was catapulted into the ultimate must-have when Chanel creative genius, Peter Phillips, launched his mauvey-manicure on the fashion house’s spring 2010 runway.  The color, appropriately named Particulière, flew off their counter as soon as it was put out. An instant Chanel sell out, are we not surprised?

This brings me to my latest putty-licious find, Deborah Lippmann’s Waking Up In Vegas! The name says it all for this cloudy gray hue & celeb manicurist Deborah Lippmann knows her stuff when it comes to crafting the ‘it’ color for the most fashion-forward hands. An extra bonus—her polishes are free from Formaldehyde, Toluene & Dibutyl Phthalates!
