As soft as an ivory rose, this creamy shade is ideal for clients who like a clean, airy springtime look. The lightness of the shade elongates the fingers and makes the nail beds look larger, while the warmth of the shade keeps the manicure from looking too stark. It’s an easy color to convince clients to try — and you can bet they’ll keep coming back to it.

Warm Taupe

Warm taupe shades are perfect for clients who like a neutral look, but are drawn to colors that are a little deeper on the spectrum. When going for this style, be sure to choose a taupe with warm undertones to ensure that the color remains in spring territory instead of going in a fall direction.

No matter what your client’s preferences may be, there’s sure to be muted nail polish colors to fit their style. Encourage them to experiment with new and different nail polish colors for spring, and maybe they’ll find a new favorite!
