Yellow & Orange Blooms
Nude polish tones are a sophisticated, modern way to set off these bright flowers, Lippmann says. These shades can look unappealing in the bottle, but they're gorgeous, and opaque formulas are great for concealing spots, marks, or bruises on nails, Lippmann reveals (shown here: Nicole by OPI in Cocoa à Go Go). Whether you go with a sheer or opaque version, flesh-toned nail enamels are great for short fingers, making even the stubbiest digits seem longer and more elegant.
Good to know: Try colors you aren't normally drawn to. Sometimes we get stuck in a rut and overlook some very flattering options, Lippmann says. Fancy-yellow-oval-diamond-and-white-diamond (1.46 carats) ring, $11,000, by S.E.S. Creations
