User post: Trying out Spring's Hottest Shade On my Nails!

I very rarely indulge in a manicure, maybe twice a year. When I do go I choose a nail color that is soft subdued and neutral. Well, I went yesterday and decided enough with neutral! Maybe it was the faint taste of spring in the air, the unseasonably warm weather (it was 60 in NY), the appearance of the ground from under the snow. Whatever it was I wanted a pop of bright color and man is this color bright. It is a combination of coral and honeysuckle. The polish is by Essie's in California Coral. My brother described the color as distractingly bright and perhaps it is. It is just what the doctor ordered to sweep away the winter doldrums, it's so cheerful I find it hard not to look at it a smile.

Have you tried any trendy spring nail colors, what are your favorites? Does wearing bright polish or makeup brighten your mood?
