Need some spring manicure inspiration? Look to Kristen Bell and Katharine McPhee, who recently worked pastel nails! We love Bell’s cute peach lacquer, and McPhee’s trendy seafoam. If you’re bored with nude nail polishes, powdery colors like these are an easy, non-intimidating way to switch up your style. Plus, pastels look great against any skin tone! Just be sure to finish with a swipe of glossy top coat to keep them from appearing chalky. The gallery below for a closer look at our favorite celeb manicures!
