Soft and subtle is the name of the manicure game once the weather starts to warm up

Nothing puts us in a better mood than a brand-new manicure in one of the season's freshest colors. And this spring, those colors are pale pastels. While this isn't exactly a groundbreaking seasonal trend, the newest colors for 2015 are much more modern than the Easter egg shades of years past.

Celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann says perfecting a pastel manicure really comes down to taking your time and applying two coats. "Don't think you're going to get full coverage on the first coat," she says. "One of the biggest mistakes people make when they're [using pastels] is to think that on the first coat it's going to look perfect. And don't forget you still need a base and top coat.".

Now you're ready to try your hand at one of these new-for-spring pastel nail polishes.

The Shade: Barely There Nude
At spring Fashion Week in New York, it was all about the bare nail. (See Theory and Victoria Beckham for inspiration.) Except that the nails weren't bare at all. Instead, manicurists used sheer layers of skin-toned hues that left nails looking natural and healthy.
