PURPLE PASSION

Sonia Kashuk Nail Colour in ‘Sitting Pretty’: Can’t part with basic black, even in spring? Let your nails take on a pop of purple color. This medium shade isn’t too pastel, isn’t too dark — as Goldilocks would say, it’s just right. Get it: $4.79, www.target.com.

Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color in ‘Polar Purple’: Give your metallic purple nails an instant upgrade with this cool polish: You paint on a base coat, then, after your second coat, you hold the cap with a built-in magnet over the nail for 10 seconds, and the polish moves around, creating a cool lined effect. Pay a pro for fancy nail art? No, thank you! Get it: $9.99, www.walgreens.com
