Laura Mercier's spring lacquer lineup: Sizzle, Flamingo, Luscious, Oh La La, and Cabana

Hands up, ladies! Laura Mercier is staging a nail polish comeback.

February marks the launch of the beauty guru's first nail range in years (aside from her one-off Twilight hue for Holiday 2011) ... and boy, is it a beaut.

The Spring 2012 collection features five fabulous limited-edition shades of exuberant pinks and reds, with names that pretty much sell themselves: Flamingo, Sizzle, Cabana, Oh La La, and Luscious.

If Flamingo's tropical hot pink or the intense fuchsia pop of Luscious don't reel you in, maybe this will: Each fast-drying formula is free of formaldehyde, toluene, and DBO, while a flat brush design ensures fuss-free application.

The new lacquers retail for $18 a pop, and Mercier also has a fresh batch of Gel Lip Colours ($22 apiece) to liven up your springtime beauty routine. With bold shades like Clementine, Poppy, Dollface, Rosette, and Orchid on offer, you're just a rosy cheek and sweep of mascara away from perfection.

Sigh. Kind of makes you want to fast-forward through winter, doesn't it?
