Spring has sprung and yet again the beauty forecast calls for sheers and pastels. As much as we love these pretty hues, we’re mixing it up with celeb-inspired nail trends.
Edgy and fun, these funky new lines come in wearable colors for fans of all ages.
Katy Perry OPI Line
You don’t need electric blue locks to get pop-star Katy Perry’s California girl style. Sheer enough for everyday wear, the line features OPI’s new Black Shatter. Apply base color, let it completely dry then apply the Shatter. Use as little Shatter as possible because the less you use, the more it cracks. Shatter can be used on top of any of your fave polish shades. Add some sparkle to your spring wardrobe with pink glitter “Teenage Dream” and iridescent ocean green “Not Like the Movies.” Shades are $8.50-$14 per bottle.

The One Less Lonely Girl Collection from Nicole by OPI
(and for the love of Justin Beiber!)
Eight million Twitter followers strong and counting, Justin Bieber is invading the beauty scene with a new nail polish collection. Even if you haven’t caught Bieber fever, these totally 80s shades are bright, bold and as trendy as they come. What’s even better is the collection raises awareness for the non-profit organization Pencils of Promise (PoP), which helps build schools to create educational opportunities. Justin has joined the cause with a goal to build 100 schools for children around the world. We love his signature purple “I’m a Belieber,” metallic “Not a Gold Bigger” and “Step 2 the Beat of my ♥” with tiny jewel hearts. The silver sparkled “Make U Smile” is great for layering on top of one of the bold colors for a new spin on you’re plain old top coat.
Sephora by OPI GLEE Collection
Every Tuesday night we’ve got our recorders set to Fox so we won’t miss a moment of GLEE. Smitten by the cover songs and cute cast, Sephora has gone GLEEk with a limited-edition collection of colors. Shades are inspired by the colorful cast of characters that keep us coming back for more. Go bold with the opaque sky blue “Slushie” or steal the show like Rachel with the raspberry red “Miss Bossy Pants.” Whatever you choose, the wide range of colors are guaranteed to match your every mood. More on the GLEE collection.
