Melon Colored Nail Polish

Trend Alert: Melon Nails

Get ready to see many more melon-colored nails this spring. Check out Kristen Bell promoting her new movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall. While her fingernails are a quite bright, there are tons of varying raspberry and fruit-punch colored polishes to choose from. Here are three of my favorite juicy melon-colored nail lacquers.

L'Oreal Pro Manicure Nail Polish in Mango Get Em ($4.99) is a quick-drying, toluene- and formaldehyde-free polish that claims to last seven days without chipping. It also contains a strengthening pro-keratin ingredient and results in a high-shine finish.

For two other melon-colored nail polishes,


Cantaloupe by Essie ($8) is a soft and creamy coral-melon color that is made from a chip-resistant formula. Two coats are all you need for a long-lasting, glass-like sheen.

Duri Nail Enamel in Beachy Peachy ($5) may not have a melon name, but this deep peachy coral color with hint of iridescent shimmer fits the bill.

I bought the Mango-Get-Em last summer, & i've been wearing it all week! I agree w/Meka_suga, I love when I find out something I like is the next hot thing. We're ahead of the trends!

I have this trend on already! Don't you love when the things you like just happen to be the new hot thing. I'm wearing Lola Devine by MAC the Heatherette collection. It looks coral or light pink in the bottle but on it looks melon with my deep skin tone.

I find the same thing happens with Chanel polish, jeda21. I love the colors but the streaking is ridiculous — especially considering the high cost of the product.

I have a bottle of chanel orange blossom that I'm just in love with. Now, all that's left is for me to take the patience to apply it right! As it tends to streak if applied too thickly, or quickly.

I will definitely look for the Essie one soon. I usually wear their pale pinks and nudes but this color would be great to wear right now!

I love this look! Especially if you have dark skin or are very tanned. Mavala do a brilliant melon varnish too, though Essie has to be my fave
