COLOR CODED

how to nail spring's biggest trends right here, right now.

Twenty-nine days, four cities, and countless collections later, Fashion Month officially wrapped yesterday. And just like always, Pantone has unveiled the top colors of the season based on the number of runway appearances and the designers' inspirations behind these shades. The company has also created a trend forecasting chart (see it here) to find out what you and millions of other shoppers will be wearing next spring.

These SS12 clothes won't hit stores for several months, but here's the good news: you can get in on the action early, beauty-wise at least. We've played matchmaker and paired Pantone's top eight color picks with nail lacquers available now.

In other words, buy them today....wear them with your outfits later.
