Spring Makeup 2013:

"The simplicity with manicures has been growing momentum for some time now," said Sterling. "My favorite combo of polish to use for a beautiful nude is a thin coat of Chanel's Frenzy ($27; chanel.com) topped with a coat of Essie's Fed Up ($8; essie.com)." Layer the two lacquers for a timeless nude pedicure, then wear Essie's pale apricot alone on your hands.
