This week, instead of focusing on outfits that are suitable for our Mom lives, I wanted to focus on something super simple we can do to perk up our fashion for spring and summer. And for less than $10 too.
It’s nail polish.
Painting the piggies with a trendy topcoat is instant fashion fabulousness. Plus, you can do this while waiting for the kids in the parking line at preschool, or in those quiet quick minutes before going to bed. Better yet, treat yourself to a mani, pedi or both. MiniLuxe (who provided the polishes in the pic) has walk-in appointments. So no fancy spas or appointments that we often have to cancel because they kids decide to beat each other to a pulp. If you don’t live in Massachusetts, look around for similar walk-in establishments.
The top nail polish colors for summer 2013 that you should try are fresh greens, bright purples and coral pinks. The key is the color tone. You don’t want forest green or a eggplant purple. Those are so winter! Find shades like these for a fresh take on classic colors.

I personally LOVE the minty greens, sea foam, fresh mint-like colors. But if you can’t find fashion pieces like this or don’t have the budget, then buy a bottle of polish and you are good to go. It will totally make a head-to-toe black outfit seem chic when you have sandals, with toes painted in this shade.
I’ve also seen fabulous outfits with the coral-pink shade. If you have a pair of cropped blue jeans, add a royal blue t-shirt, gold sandals and this shade of polish on your fingers and feet, and you’re talking instant glam! Yet, you’re still in flip-flops, jeans and a t-shirt.
I love the purply shade with yellow! Perfection! And of course, the light pink shade is a classic!
