Transitioning into next season's bright hues doesn't necessarily mean you have to go neon right away. Pastel shades add a pretty pop of color to your look while complementing your wintertime complexion. Another reason to try out the muted colors? The soft, Easter-appropriate tints—which dominated Elie Saab's recent couture collection—are popping up in all the newest Spring polish collections. We chatted with celebrity manicurist Jenna Hipp (who works with Lea Michele and Michelle Williams) about the Top 3 pastel colors you need to try!
"Lilac can be super fun when combined with neon, but it also looks very romantic when worn with white or cream," according to Jenna." Like most purples, lilac can have tricky undertones, but the hue works best on medium or olive to dark skin." She suggests trying the shade at a salon before you buy the bottle.
