Had enough of orange? Yeah, us too, which is why we're stoked that Pantone named emerald green the color of 2013. We think this underrated hue deserves way more attention that it usually gets. Dark green is infinitely sexy without being expected or played out, not to mention the fact it looks amazing on skin of all shades. Fortunately, the beauty world has heeded the siren call of all things evergreen and released a slew of new products in every variation of green you can think of. We're excited to start playing around with these lush and luxe tones — smoky jade eyes, here we come!
The nail art backlash has finally reached its pinnacle, if the spring runways have anything to say about it. At show after show, from Diane von Furstenberg to Derek Lam, we saw enough nudes to make Hugh Hefner blush. While usually we're not ones for the neutral nail trend, we did love the sub-trend of gold color that popped up. Unlike last year's foundation nails, it's not about matching your tips exactly to your skin tone, but rather choosing a hue that's darker and warmer without being too much of a stark contrast. And, as models at Rodarte demonstrate, just because you're rocking beige tips doesn't mean you can't have a little fun. Check out this woven nail art pattern featuring two complementary nude hues. Who knew basketweaving could look so badass?
