Spring 2011 Nail Polish Trend #1: Fun, Translucent Shades
The hottest nail lacquer colors for spring 2011 include a number of shades that offer a fresh and glossy glow on your nails. Juicy spring nail colors like orange, pink, and hues of red from the OPI Texas nail polish collection give us a brighter, funkier look for spring 2011 nails.
This collection includes a variety of colors that truly are, well, juicy. The colors in these popular OPI nail products remind us of jelly bracelets, jellies, and other fun, bright accessories. Your spring manicures and pedicures will look fantastic with this partially transparent collection of nail colors
The Texas Sorbet collection by OPI includes lovely shades like Y’all Come Back Ya Hear (pretty orange) and Too Hot Pink To Hold Em, which is available as a single shade or paired with OPI Black Shatter.
If you are interested in trying a couple of the hot nail colors for spring 2011, you can also get a sampler set of the OPI Texas collection, which includes Austin-tatious Turquoise, I Vant to Be a Lone Star White, Do You Think I’m Tex-y Red, and RapiDry Top Coat.
Spring 2011 Nail Polish Trend #2: Tribal Shades
OPI’s hot spring 2011 nail polish color lineup goes from the juicy sorbet shades above to also include earthier tones reminiscent of Native American villages and accessories with hot nail colors in turquoise, silver, tan, and more. The colors can easily switch from professional to fun and back again.
OPI’s San Tan-tonio is one of my favorites in this collection, offering a flat matte look with just two coats.
Another nail color that I really enjoyed is Austin-Tatious Turquoise – a fun nail color that definitely requires at least two coats, but looks great for just about any occasion. The lovely spring silver, It’s Fort Worth It, adds some glamour to any occasion.
Spring 2011 Nail Polish Trend #3: Basic Shades
While there are plenty of new nail polish shades just for spring, some of the spring nail polish trends carry over from previous seasons’ trends instead. Manicures and pedicures for spring don’t always have to have a huge burst of color. Here’s what a beauty expert has to say about some of the hot nail colors for spring 2011.
“For Spring 2011, nude colors are still the rage… and white, such as Trina Turk’s The Met, a long time favorite of runway models,” says Rachele Greco, Spa Director at Viana Hotel & Spa in Westbury, NY.
In summary, spring’s hottest nail colors range from bright and juicy shades to flat or matte shades, cool nail colors with a hint of shimmer, and of course, basic nude and white tones. You can mix and match these nail polish colors for spring or stick to a single shade. Don’t be afraid to test the waters with nail art accessories to dress up your manicures. OPI’s Texas Sorbet Collection offers a lot of hot nail colors, but you can make them even more glamorous with a little creativity. Consider adding fimo nail art for a fun and three-dimensional look.
When it comes to the hottest spring nail colors for this year, don’t forget to check out OPI’s Black Shatter, which is currently a bestselling nail art product. You can change the look of any mani or pedi dramatically with this product, adding a crackled looking topcoat to your nails.
There are more options for hot and popular nail polish colors for spring 2011, but I did not get to check them all out in person. I received a variety of Texas Collection and Justin Bieber collection sample nail polish products from OPI for the purpose of this review and others. You are sure to enjoy these and other nail colors of spring beauty, especially if you choose to paint your own nail designs on your manicures and pedicures.
