The Best (Almost) Spring Nail Polish Shade Is Deep Coral (PHOTOS)

And seemingly out of nowhere, it seems spring is near. Near being the key word. The days are getting longer and the skies are decidedly less gloomy, at least here in New York. We're taking the opportunity to speed things up a bit with a bright nail polish that happens to feel perfect for (almost) spring.

In what we're coining your transitional spring shade, deep coral is bright enough to keep us motivated through the dregs of winter, yet looks pretty great with our navy and grey coats that are still currently in rotation. A slightly pinker version of the electric orange nail color we saw last summer, the shade works surprisingly well on many different skin tones. Even better, it's going to look just as good later in the summer, when you've got a little bit of a tan.

And just to give you some perspective: 19 days 'til spring, guys.
