The next, it’s cold. Apart from struggling with weather appropriate wear, we’ve always found it extra difficult to pick out the right nail polish color. Subconsciously, we know its way too warm (and way past early January) to be wearing Essie’s Wicked, but it’s also way too cold (and only late March) to be wearing the Easter-y pastels.

So, what to do?

We’ve gathered our favorite winter-spring nail color alternatives that every dark-loving-deep-red hogging nail obsessed girl should try out. Seriously though, why not conquer this weather limbo in fashion forward style?

Make Like Metallica And Shine

Metallic Spring Looks

Metallic colors, especially the lighter and more playful tones, hint at spring in subtle way. Paired with just the right amount of bracelets, bangles, and rings, they tell the world that you mean business.

Try: Essie’s Jiggle Hi Jiggle Lo, No Place Like Chrome, Penny Talk, or Blue Rhapsody

Matte Me Crazayy

Matte Nails

If you’re not willing to give up the broodier colors quite yet, matte shades are the perfect compromise. They have a knack for softening up the darkest polishes.

Try: OPI’s Alpine Snow, Orly’s Purple Velvet, or Zoya’s Loredana

Oh, Dude! Go Nude!

PicMonkey Collage

When unsure, nude is definitely the way to go. Now that the weather is “warming up,” nude colors are a great way to draw attention to your tan (current or eventual).

Try: Chanel’s 625 Secret, Jin Soon’s Nostalgia, China Glaze’s Inner Beauty, or Butter London’s Tea With The Queen
