Beyonce's Cobalt Blue Wedding Manicure Should Inspire All Your Nail Polish Shopping This Spring
I'm sure y'all have seen the images of the American Royal Wedding that have finally, finally, finally, been released, but if you haven't heard: in celebration of their seven (!) year anniversary, Jay-Z posted a video montage of his wedding to Beyonce, allowing us plebs to get a glimpse of Queen Bey's wedding gown (creamy sweetheart perfection), it was the bride's something blue that really popped. PEOPLE StyleWatch reported on the bright, cobalt polish Beyonce rocked down the aisle and it's got me thinking that unconventional manis are as overdue as those wedding photos.
Bridal blush or beige? Wayyy too safe for Beyonce, who opted for a pop of blue that took center stage when Jay-Z slipped that megawatt ring on her finger. A little crazy for a wedding day, yes, but would you expect anything else from your favorite fashion chameleon?
In the real world (aka not a multi-million dollar celebrity wedding), blue polish is a hit for spring, livening up your digits after a winter of dark plum and grey shades. Plus, the shade just so happens to look awesome on a wide variety of skin tones. Take a gander at the baby blues and sexy sapphire nail polishes below. It's time for mani that matches the springtime sky.

A hot, vivid shade to help melt that winter frost. (OPI, No Room for Blues)
