Pinterest Picks – Navy Nails

By Monday, March 23, 2015 3 Permalink

Yeah, I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “navy nails for fall”, which supposedly means that navy polish and autumn have an exclusive relationship that cannot be broken. To hell with that! It’s spring and I’m here to tell you it’s time to break out the navy polish. How rebellious of me right? Rocking a fall hue in spring. But really it’s because I ain’t no pastel princess – baby blues and light corals are not me.

So for now, my nails are staying dark. The twisted thing is that as someone who loves black nail polish, navy is a light color for me and so totally spring appropriate. Thankfully it’s still dark enough to be in my comfort zone and look good with my entire closet *cough because it’s mostly black cough*. If you also happen to love black nails but feel like it’s a little too dark for spring, try navy.

So why navy nails for spring 2015? Well, here are some of the trends that are popular for this season that would look great with navy nails: all white, safari and military green, yellow, boho, palm prints, and ’70s. The colors that are on trend this season are sure to pair well with navy, especially considering the varying shades of blue in the Pantone lineup. It’s a nail color that can become many things, from preppy to chic to a little bit rock-n-roll. There’s some edge to it but it can just as easily join you on a yachting expedition (do yachts go on expeditions?) Bottom line, it’s versatile and oh so pretty.

  • The After School Boy Blazer looks great in the photo. Navy is not something I would think of for spring but I think I want to try it out.

  • I love navy for spring! I mean navy = nautical = springtime, right? I need to hunt down a good navy gel polish :)

    • Exactly! Nautical, navy, done. I wish I could help you with the gel polish but I know next to nothing about gel polishes. Let me know if you settle on one. :)
