1. What are some of your favorite nail colors for spring 2015? For spring I’m loving the warmer pastels, very moody, soothing with less white pigments and not as bright. Grey blues, soft vintage pinks and subdued greens.

2.What nail shapes are going to be popular this spring?
Almond nails are still a fashion fave and currently I’m sporting a pointier almond nail.

3. How can our readers translate extravagant nail trends like 3D elements into our style for everyday wear?
If you see 3D nails  you can always tone it down using  light glitter and replacing stones by making dots. The most important thing to keep in mind is tailoring the nail look to fit into everyday real life.
