With the start of the spring season comes an opportunity to freshen up your nail polish game, redheads. Are you ready to embrace the latest trends of pastel polishes and vibrant shades of green lacquers?! I am!

Read on to discover my favorite seasonal selections:

Pastel Pinks

Despite a fabulous redhead being the lead in the famous film Pretty in Pink, pastels are not always the easiest colors in the world for gingers to rock. But don’t let this challenging hue deter you from enjoying the hottest polish trend of the season. The trick with pastels is to find a shade that best complements your undertones. If you are like many natural gingers and experience redness in your complexion, aim to wear a neutral polish that balances your coloring rather than a shade that is overly warm or extremely cool toned.

Pastel Greens

After you’ve mastered your perfect shade of pastel pink, you can easily find a shade of pastel green that will complement any complexion. Pretty pastels are a fun way to welcome the airier spring season with style while still remaining elegant.

Vibrant Green

Have you ever met a redhead who didn’t look incredible in green? If pastels aren’t your thing or if you are ready for a change of pace, elevate your manicure with a shade of vibrant green. This gorgeous color is the ideal spring companion and reminds us of all things new and natural.

Nothing Rhymes with Purple…but You’ll Look Good Wearing It

When it comes to manicures, a majestic shade of purple is perfection. This color is so well suited for redhead royalty. While an excellent choice at any time of the year, it is the ideal color to transition your heavier winter wardrobe into lighter, brighter tones for spring.

Mannequin Mani

If you’re the type of redhead who loves an effortless neutral, the mannequin mani is the polish trend for you. Choose your best nude shade that seamlessly blends into your skin tone. This understated look works for work but also matches anything you might wear during your off time.

Redhead-Approved Polishes: Essie Ballet Slippers, Deborah Lippmann Naked

Poppy

Perhaps a mannequin mani is too demure for your liking and you’re on the search for a bold pop of color that will boost your mood. Poppy orange is here for you. This vibrant shade of not quite red, not quite orange will be stunning on all redheads and will carry you through the spring and summer months ahead.

Redhead-Approved Polishes: OPI Living on the Bula-Vard!, Smith & Cult Tang Bang

Ultimate Gray + Illuminating Yellow

Pantone’s official colors of the year (a mid-tone blue/gray and a serene yet bright yellow) make excellent choices for the spring season. Switch things up with a gray manicure paired with an unexpected splash of yellow as an accent nail. This color pairing truly tells a story of moving from darkness to light, winter to spring, and challenging times to a brighter future ahead.
