My Sally Hansen® Miracle Match was "Get Mod," a bright white nail polish from the Miracle Gel™ line, and the description for my personality could not be more right:

"Think outside the box is your motto... so that means hosting funky dinner parties and modeling your quirky fashion finds.”

THIS. IS. SO. ME! Hit the nail on the head. So I thought I would show you how to bring your personality into your outfits with your color and really step up your style for spring. The best part? All of these tips will work regardless of what your color match was!

Tip #1: Manicure

This tip is obvious. Integrate your personality and your color with a fresh manicure! I tend to always wear the same style of nails; long, oval shaped nails with a glitter half moon. I'm transitioning out of my dark, black nails that I had all winter and brightening up with a fresh coat of white!

Tip #2: Handbag

Your bag is something that can become your signature piece, so this is the perfect time to bring a lot of personality into your outfit! Switch up your style by changing out your purse. I've been carrying a dark purse all winter, so this white purse immediately lightens up my outfits while matching my style.

Tip #3: Shoes

If you're a little timid about playing around with a lot of color, or if you work in an office, this is a great way to bring some life to your outfit while staying professional.

Tip #4: Monochromatic

Wearing a monochromatic outfit (like my look) is really fresh for spring. White on white, pink on pink, the options are endless. Layering the same color immediately makes your look more modern, so you can participate in this trend regardless of your color match! My tip for layering colors: Mix up the textures if you're keeping the color solid. This helps an outfit to look more luxe!

Tip #5: Fringe

Fringe is one of the biggest trends for spring and one of my personal favorites. It's impossible to not feel fun when you're wearing this style! Experiment with fringe on a skirt, or on a purse and with a fun color!

I hope these tips inspire you to play up your personality with your spring style; fashion should be as much fun as you! Find out your color match by taking the quiz here.
