Now that a rainbow of options are in, I'll gladly pass on the standard reds and pinks. My nails are sizzlin' in bright yellow, green, and orange shades that make me feel bold and beautiful. Hell, you know a trend has made its mark when the always fierce Kim K is jumping on board.

The Kardashian crew just launched their line Kardashian Kolors, with colors inspired by each of the girls (my fave: Khloe Had a Little Lam-Lam). And boy are they preeetttty! With so many awesome color combos to try, I seriously can't wait to get my hooks into every hue!

    A little sparkle goes a long way, ladies! Want to really make this look sizzle? Choose an 'accent nail' by just painting one nail with it and the rest in a solid color, or just use it to make all your nails shine.
