When the Wildcat faithful adorn themselves in UK colors for Saturday's Final Four action, they'll be wearing one of the hottest hues for spring and summer — blue.
Nail colors are one of the easiest ways to dress this trend. And no matter how the game goes Saturday, blue is a winner when it comes to this year's warm-weather manicures and pedicures.
For an affordable drugstore brand of polish similar to Kentucky blue, try Revlon Top Speed Fast Dry Enamel in Royal 730 featuring a built-in topcoat, $5.99, or Essie's Mezmerized, $8.
