5 Fun Spring 2012 Nail Colors: Electric Blue, Mint, Pastels, and More!
By Claire

Want to exude chic down to your fingernails?
Hop onto some of the hottest nail colors, as seen on a few of our fave Fashion Bomb celebs. This year’s shape seems to be longer and pointier, sort of like a super sexy talon:

But whether you choose to keep your nails short and square or long and pointed, we’ve got the top colors for you to dip into.
1. Electric Blue:

When Jay-Z and Beyonce gave birth to their first child Blue Ivy, they also unwittingly ushered in a new nail trend. Beyonce’s bright Baker Street Electric Blue nail color, worn in honor of her newborn, has been spied on several stars, including Angela Simmons.

2. Mint

Mint is hot for clothes–and for your fingernails. Dip your toes and nails in the hue and keep it poppin.

3. Pastels

Pepper your pointers with a series of shades in chic pastels. Take a cue from Azealia Banks with pale purple, or keep it super soft with pastel pink or blue.

4. Ravishing Red

Traditional red is still hot for Spring 2012, in full on coats, or uplifted by half moon manicures:

As with any other color, have fun!

5. Stark White

Can’t be bothered with all those confusing colors? Bright white goes with everything and is perfect for spring. If straight up white nails are too boring, take a cue from Cassie and add a fun design on one or two digits:

Did we miss anything? And what nail color will you try?

    Currently rocking mint green stilettos!

  10. Gigi says:

    I’ve changed the shape of my nails from squoval to more of a round shape with minimum point. It’s still not stiletto nails but pointy enough. Honestly, after all these years, I’m still getting used to the new shape, but I’ve been told that they look hot so I think I’m gonna go with that ;-)

  11. essie says:

    Someone please tell me who the chick with the awful yaki weave and even more awful makeup is, why she showing up everywhere? Damn the nails–there is nothing forgivable about that photo…

  12. Natasha says:

    LOVE LOVE THIS POST! Cassie is just hot

  13. Not this Banks girl again, does she ever take a normal photo?

  14. The Antifash says:

    I am a part of the claw nailz bellz (well sort of, mine are a bit rounded) and I usually go dark. My younger brother calls them evil gal nails lol. I have tried the cookie monster blue (love it) and a cool navy/gold half moon. I am looking to venture into the pastel’s this coming spring.

    Can I just say that I really live for Cassie’s face & nails? Super gorg!

  15. Crystal says:

    I’m wearing mint green now but will go for a polish change tomorrow. It’s just not appropriate in a work environment but all of my meetings are via phone this week so I could get away with it. People were rocking blue before Blue Ivy. IJS!

  16. fashion roadkill says:

    I love all the nail colors……..they are to die for.

  17. Totally digging this post! Love painting my nails in a variety of colours. I currently have square nails. Hoping to have them pointed soon!!

  26. localceleb says:

  27. I am over the exaggerated pointy look!!!! The colors are dope!!! I am currently trying to decide what colors I shall rock this spring and summer…

  28. Dom says:

    I’ve been on mint for at least two years now when I saw Queen Latifah with it. Last summer I picked up a pastel yellow and I’m wearing that on my toes. I did mint this past friday and had it off in time for work Monday. Gotta keep it professional!

  29. andie says:

  32. p says:

    i’ve been rocking long and round nails for about 3 years now since i first saw the look on rihanna. i think it’s a very sexy and feminine look. and i LOVE blue polish. i usually wear opi dating a royal but after i saw the stunning blue beyonce had on i got that polish too. it’s by nails inc and it’s called baker street. it’s a bright neon standout blue. it’s gorgeous.

  33. I always love Rihanna’s nails! Electric blue, one of my favourite colors!

  34. lissette says:
