Aside from my usual arsenal of warm weather necessities (sandals, dresses, pastel colored bags – you get the idea) spring is practically synonymous with one super important style-must: MANICURES. Ladies, much like your hair, nails are one of your very best accessories and, unfortunately, they’re often forgotten when it comes to pulling a complete look together.
