You know what everyone at Into The Gloss is done with? Winter, our cold weather nemesis. A quick browse through our homepage says as much. In recent weeks, we’ve gone from declaring “our spring look,” to “spring cleaning,” to “spring makeup.” And now we’re onto another spring-inspired element: nails. This season, we’re going for muted colors that feel good. It’s a break from your typical spring nail edit, but still colorful enough to give a fresh jumpstart to the warmer days ahead. Working with manicurist Momo Leafgel (who does Beyoncé nails!), we rounded up five shades that felt cheerful but not overwhelming. Join us as we turn the corner to more colorful days ahead.
A Soothing Green
J. Hannah in Artichoke
The perfect green for the season—not too rich and emerald-like, but not too bright either. Pairs well with jeans and a blue spring sky.
The shade chameleon
Chanel in Washed Denim
Is it gray? Is it blue? Is it....green? Who’s to say… Just know that it looks mighty fine when teamed up with a neutral-colored outfit.
A rich apricot
Morgan Taylor in Sweet Morning Dew
Let’s just roll with the whole “morning dew is orange” thing—no need to dilly dally on semantics. The bottom line is that Sweet Morning Dew is a peach that’s actually interesting. Vibrant and happy, you’ll get a kick out of looking down at your hands when you’re stuck inside at work.
The nonintimidating pink
Essie in Perfect Mate
A pink for those who’ve graduated from a pastel to something more vivid. And yet, it’s not intimidating! It goes well with virtually every color palette and mood, whether it’s a blazer at work, a soft flowy dress out to dinner, or a pair of jeans while you’re out and about.
The red you've been waiting for
J. Hannah in Ghost Ranch
Now here’s a red that you don’t see every day. Far from the blue reds that run wild during the colder months, this rust red is warmer and muted—a quiet red, if there ever was one.
