Pause. Manicure check. Are you a.) winter windchapped with cuticles that need professional attention; b.) stuck to your cold-weather charcoal, navy, or plum hue; c.) pretending it's tropical time with some kind of vibrant red-orange? Get it together and accept that it's no longer winter but it sure ain't summer. Treat your nails thusly to an in-between shade: something with a hint of color, but a little subdued.

Red-addicts should give L'Oreal's creamy Orange You Jealous a try, girls that favor barely-there color ought to paint on a coat of American Apparel's Butter, and the somehow-I-always-find-my-way-to-neon chick can take it down just a notch with the Pierre Hardy x Nars high-contrast shades. Click through the gallery for all 14 pastel hues.
