As with clothing and accessories, minimalism has been gaining ground when it comes to beauty as well—like for spring 2013 nails. We’re all lovers of funky nail art, but it’s alright to tone it down sometimes. Designers like Narciso Rodriguez, Donna Karan and Phillip Lim all used neutral, sheer or minimal nail polish on models for their spring 2013 runway shows, and now we’re passing on the knowledge by giving you options for lacquers that are simple, yet chic. Whether it’s understated neutral polish, a subtle ombré effect with a set of light lacquers, or a splash of glitter, you’ll be sure to nail it.
Browse our 10 suggestions below and see which minimal polish you plan on sporting for spring.
