As we welcome a new season, it’s time to give your beauty routine a refresh—nails included. Let this be your reminder to think of spring nail designs as a means of self-expression, just like your makeup or outfit choices.
“Spring is the perfect time to experiment with nail art because the warm weather announces that it’s time to have fun!” says Jin Soon Choi, editorial manicurist and founder of her namesake nail-care brand. “And best of all, your toes are more likely to make more of an appearance during spring, so there are 10 more reasons to have fun with your nail shade and design.”
Whether you want to keep it classic and simple or sport a larger-than-life mani, let your nails make a statement this spring. Below, celebrity nail artists highlight some of the best spring nail trends to inspire your next trip to the salon (or at-home manicure).
“Flowers are always pleasant for spring!” says nail pro Nita Howard, who thinks anyone could do a subtle iteration of the trend with “a simple nude with a daisy on one or two fingers.” Though florals are by no means an original idea in springtime, celebrity nail artist Naomi Yasuda agrees there are still ways to ensure a unique manicure. “Hand-painted flowers, real dried flowers, stickers, and decals—there are so many designs you can try,” she says.
