    I was just thinking this earlier, with MAC's newest color pigments coming out....80's pink and orange...it looks pretty though!!!

    I guess I'm in the mood for color at the moment, so I know I'm all excited for it!

    Just as long as nails aren't too long, I think these colors look fine.

    Does anyone remember the yucky easter egg pastels nail trend of the early/mid 90's? Like when Hard Candy first came out, and the hot colors were all very white based, like pale yellow, pale blue, etc.? Were those colors really flattering on anybody? No matter what the hue, it always seemed like you had white-out on your nails...

    Right now my nails are pink. I don't usually follow trends. I just match my nail color with my outfit or my mood. :p

    I'm the same way. I HATE bright colors - I just look horrid in anything bright. I prefer a more conservative, classic look. On my nails I stick to basic pinks, sometimes tans or beiges. I get a little more crazy with my toenails, however. Love golds, silvers, and reds. :blush:

    But anyway - NOT huge on the bright 80s stuff.

    I've gotten into wearing my nails more on the short side (just at the fingertips) and in rich, dark tones. Along the lines of a deep plum. Not so summery, but it suits my mood better.

    I'm guilty of adoring flag green/deep blue/deep pink nailpolish. :x
    I was never a nude nails girl.

    i usually keep it to clear polish on my fingernails (however they are red- very chipped- now) and go NUTS on my toes. last week they were alternating fuscia, red, orange! so summery and fun :)

    I use red a lot, depending on the season of he year I change it's tone. Darker, softer in winter and now bright bright red sort of like Nicole Richie(I don't like her but we share the nail colour) and sometimes a colour between bright red-pink.


    I use to do the watery orange, I remember it was everywhere in Vogue but I regret it, it's awful.

    i'm doing a tangerine color which is unusual for me since i usually do a very dark black cherry which looks great for my black skin but a friend said its too goth for spring/summer, i think i may go back to it though cause it fits my look

    I've started to wear a brown one, Maybelline Colorama 33 berry jam.

    It looks rather pretty...
