Spring into colour

It's finally time to say goodbye to dark, vampy nail polish and make way for brighter, more spring-like shades. YSL's new line features two Manicure Couture Duos, (HK$220) one with bubblegum pink and tangerine orange shades, and the other a mint green and chocolatey brown. Another standout product from the collection is the gel blush (HK$260) - it provides a subtle tint of colour and comes in three shades. Products are available at all Yves Saint Laurent counters.

Talons for charity

Nail polish for a cause? Count me in. SpaRitual's Water Collection offers fabulous-looking nails while you help others - 20 per cent of proceeds will go to Surge, a non-profit organisation that provides safe, clean water to communities around the globe. The collection comprises four shades, two cremes and two shimmers (HK$160) - the standouts are the violet shades, Ripple Effect, a dusty lavender with pink undertones, and Deep, a sultry grey shimmer. Available at A Beauty Bar in Harvey Nichols and SpaRitual Concept Counters.
