Are you ready to pick out some spring nail designs for the upcoming season? It’s so nice to switch to the light and airy colors of spring. You can do that with more than just your outfits, you can design your nails to match the season as well. Today I’m going to take you through 27 spring nails that are cute and trending.
How to Pick Spring Nails
There’s a great chance that your winter nails have been more dark, possibly holiday-themed, or even giving off minimalist nail vibes throughout the season. But no matter what your nail style was throughout the winter, it’s time to completely change it up for spring.
When spring is on its way, suddenly all the clothing in the stores becomes lightly colored, floral, and airy. Your spring nails should give off the same vibes.
Pastels or baby colors make perfect spring nails and adding on art that looks like spring is a great idea too. Think of flowers, clouds, bunnies, birds, etc. when designing nails for spring.
Today I pulled my favorite 27 spring nails that are cute and trendy for you to pick from. Whether you are hoping to pull these looks off at home or planning on bringing the image to your manicurist, I’m sure you’ll find something you’ll love.
