Are you as ready for spring as we are? Maybe it’s the time change or the sliver of sunlight that peeked through the clouds this past weekend or all those open-toe wedges displayed in shop windows, but we’re officially over the winter.
And, for us, a new season means new nail polish colors! Here are all the hottest new spring shades we can’t wait to wear:

La La Vazquez recently tweeted a pic of her new tricked out tips! She painted them a pretty periwinkle shade and decorated them with black and clear rhinestones and tiny black bows.
We love, love, love the color (it looks like China Glaze Secret Periwinkle, $5, sallybeauty.com), and the mini bows are adorable.
But what do you think:

Big news, mateys! To coincide with this summer’s most-anticipated blockbuster, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, both OPI and DuWop are launching collections inspired by the film.
DuWop’s “Isla Sirena” collection includes Mermaid Venom (a plumping lip gloss), a Rotating Map Palette (which features the treasure map form the film and spins to reveal nine eye shadows, three lip glosses, and three gel eyeliners), and Caribbean IcedTea Lip Treatments in flavors like Butter Rum (yum!).

Nothing looks worse than chapped lips, and if you’re anything like me, you suffer from something I’d like to call “constant dry lip syndrome” during the brutal winter season. These days, I have to moisturize my lips twice as much to keep them soft. But sometimes not even the best lip repair can help! At times like these I try abuela’s brown sugar lip scrub. This delicious scrub exfoliates my lips, removing flakes and peeling skin. For this recipe you’ll need a quarter teaspoon of olive oil, a tiny bit of brown sugar and a small bowl for mixing.

While snow blanketed half the country last night, we stared longingly at Jennifer Lopez’s bronzed skin, nude glossy lips, and blond-streaked hair on American Idol last night.
The Milwaukee auditions were shot in July, so it makes sense that our favorite judge is so very sun-kissed. Still, it’s inspiring us to dust off our bronzer to give our skin a much needed color boost. What about you?

Nothing is worse than dry, flaky skin and this time of year it's especially hard to avoid. Winter weather leaves skin chapped and irritated. At times likes these, abuela would go straight to the kitchen to whip up a soothing facial mask made out of oatmeal and honey.

Desperate Housewives star Ricardo Chavira, who plays Carlos Solis (aka Eva Longoria’s TV husband), kicked off season seven with a new clean-shaven look. After years of watching Carlos with a thick goatee, it’s almost hard to recognize him!
