“The spring always brings a welcome feeling of optimism,” Nadine Abramcyk, cofounder of Tenoverten, tells POPSUGAR. This year, we’ve been served a ton of fresh inspiration from New York Fashion Week and TV shows like “Euphoria,” which all have a role in what sticks for spring. “Fashion plays a big part in the creative and beauty world, and so far I’m seeing a lot of colorful designs and unique textures,” says celebrity manicurist Queenie Nguyen.
While cooler months have gained a reputation for bringing on darker nail colors, last season’s manicure trends featured art-inspired designs and lots of gold detailing; French manicures have also continued to hold strong. The latest trends for warmer months include everything from barely-there nail designs to maximalist styles like mismatched nails.
