The power of a splashy new nail color should not be underestimated. A vivid fuchsia manicure adds unexpected edge to a work uniform, opaque mint takes your poolside style to the next level and a muted clay goes with absolutely everything. Here, 7 brand-new spring shades sure to inspire a fun shift in your mani-pedi routine. Remember, change is good.
Spring Polish Trend: Vivid Fuchsia
Styling tip: If your go-to is fire-engine red, try branching out with fuchsia, which adds a touch of sass to an otherwise simple work wardrobe.

Spring Polish Trend: Bright Yellow
Styling tip: We were skeptical at first, but Yves Saint Laurent's new bright yellow lacquer (available in May) is refreshing and unexpected. Pair it with everything from basic black to flirty prints to '70s suede.
Spring Polish Trend: Opaque Mint
Styling tip: If you have a penchant for optic white polish, try mint instead for a refreshing update. The shade carries a vintage vibe when paired with mod shift dresses and block-heel sandals and also looks fantastic with your best beachwear.
Spring Polish Trend: Smoky Blue
Styling tip: This smoky blue polish is the new gray. Treat it like a neutral and wear it with everything!
Spring Polish Trend: Muted Clay
Styling tip: Neutral nails continue as a strong trend for Spring—great news since clay is the ultimate color for the working girl who needs her manicure to go with a full workweek of ensembles. Pair the pretty shade with flirty prints and patterns.
Spring Polish Trend: Deep Green
Styling tip: At first we were intimidated by this Tom Ford lacquer since it's dark, slightly sparkly and, well, green. We were delightfully surprised to discover once you put two coats on, it reads edgy, sophisticated and classic—perfect for the girl who wears head-to-toe black.
Spring Polish Trend: Neon Coral
Styling tip: Spring's fresh take on coral comes via this vivid neon hue from Butter London (available in April). With festival season upon us, it's the ideal color to team with boho staples like suede fringe, denim and turquoise accessories.
