After a cold and dreary winter spring is finally here, and with it comes beauty, color, and new life as the weather warms and the days grow longer. Now is the time to shed the dark shades of winter and liven up our beauty routines with fresh, bright spring colors. This season you’ll see all kinds of spring-inspired beauty trends popping up everywhere, including nail designs. We’re already seeing whimsical nail art patterns with interesting textures and lovely spring colors. Here we’ve put together some of our favorite spring nail designs to inspire your next manicure.
Nails are taking on a three-dimensional look this spring with all kinds of fun and interesting textures. The textures we’re seeing range from that of a cozy cable knit sweater to delicate, airy lace. Textured nails are especially striking when used as an accent nail, but they are equally as captivating as a full manicure.
Mirrored Metallic Chrome
When it comes to high shine nothing quite compares to the mirror finish of chrome. Combine that shine with metallic colors and you’ll have one of the top nail trends this season. This early 2000s trend is making a welcome comeback this spring.
Mini French Tips
With the rise in popularity of a more natural or minimalist look, it’s no surprise that mini French tips are one of the most requested nail designs for the upcoming season. Mini French tips work with your own natural nails as well as any other type of nail. The shorter length makes this manicure incredibly practical, especially for those that work with their hands. Going shorter doesn’t mean boring though. Rather than traditional white tips opt for your favorite spring color, or perhaps even a rainbow of bright-colored tips.
Whether you choose nude nails with floral decals or an intricate floral polish design, you simply can’t go wrong with florals this spring. Adding a floral touch is a great way to update any manicure for the warmer months ahead.
You can have a lot of fun with this spring nail trend. Long-tipped nails with a cutout in a fun shape are adorned with their own jewelry- a cute little dangle hooked through the cutout. Hearts and stars seem to be what most are opting for with this design.
These nails look soft and fuzzy like velvet, but it’s only an illusion. The look is created with magnetic nail polish to create a fine velvety looking texture. This look is special on its own, but you can kick it up a notch by adding embellishments such as foil or glitter accents.
Candy-Inspired Rainbow Nails
What evokes the spirit of spring better than rainbows? And what sweeter way to bring this springtime spirit to your nails with a taste of the rainbow than with these Skittles nails? A different glossy bright color on every nail creates such a fun spring vibe.
We’ve seen jelly shoes and jelly bracelets make a comeback in the past couple of years. Now that same nostalgic vibe is showing up in nail art. Just pick your favorite bright color and ask for it a translucent polish that gives just a wash of glossy color. This has been a favorite among celebrity circles as of late.
Classic Ombre Nails
Ombre nails have become a classic nail design that ranks right up there with French tips. This season's ombre nails will be in bright pastel colors with glitter accents either at the base or the tips. Choose to have the gradient in the same color family or choose complimentary colors to make your manicure more colorful.
Swirly tie-dye nails are a hot trend this spring, mostly in monochromatic themes such as pink and cream or gray and sky blue. But don’t limit yourself. Have fun with this trend and go for a totally groovy vibe with rainbow swirls or choose more earthy colors like brown and orange. The sky’s the limit with tie-dye.
If you’re a fan of vintage costume jewelry you will absolutely love this look. These nails are totally encrusted in jewels and pearls of all shapes, colors, and sizes set on a gold or black base. These dimensional nails really do take on the look of Aunt Edna’s favorite brooch.
