This cute spring-themed chevron design can be accomplished using a nail striper (or a very steady hand). The gray and pink work beautifully together, but use whatever colors catch your eye. (Photo via @Banicured_)

Who says sparkly nails are only for the holidays? Add a touch of sparkle to a pastel manicure to make it more special. @KarenGNails used Smith & Cult’s Vegas Post Apocalyptic and Plastic Beach.

This modern take on the French manicure by @ChelseaQueen is gorgeous. ‘Outlined’ nails were a major trend on the runways during Fall Fashion Week. It will be interesting to see if the trend makes its way to the mainstream.

Here’s another look by the incredibly talented @ChelseaQueen. For this design, she was inspired polka dots with a twist. She used Revlon’s Irresistible.

lacquered bits

Invest in a dotting tool – it’s the easiest way to create cute nail art at home. Lacquered Bits dotted her pastel manicure with little coral, pink and metallic dots for a unique and subtle look.

she's in the glow

Annie Atkinson of She’s in the Glow created ‘Easter egg’ nails using JINsoon polishes. The pastel colors look so fresh together, and the half moon manicure is hotter than ever!


Another half-moon manicure, but this time with some more color: the polishes used are from the new JINsoon Painted Ladies Collection. (Photo via @JINsoon)

Back to basics. There’s something so clean and crisp about an opaque white manicure. It works year-round, but it’s especially stunning during spring. @NagelKunst using Essie Blanc.


This intricate look is a pastel ombre design with tribal-inspired design on top. Nails are an ideal way to express yourself: grab some polish and let your imagination run wild. (Photo via @NailStorming)


Putting the art in nail art. The exceptionally talented @HDINails hand painted this intricate look. Breathtaking.

the nail trail

Simple, adorable and pretty: this is a quintessential spring nail art look. Hannah Weir of @TheNailTrail used pastel polishes and a dotter for this Easter-inspired look.


Here’s another Easter-inspired look by Hannah Weir of @TheNailTrail. It has a very soft, almost-watercolor look to it. So serene – love the blue and white together.


@Andrea_149 used nail wraps from Thumbs Up Nails for this detailed look. Nail wraps are the easiest way to get an intricate, flawless design at home.


Negative space manicures are so cool: Tessa Winkelmann used Julep’s Something Blue and Jessica for this creative look.


Can’t decide between two polishes? Just split it down the middle! @Chroma_Nails used Essie’s Go Ginza and Tart Deco – both fantastic spring colors.

This pastel tribal nail art by Pamela Pomelo screams spring! The rhinestone accents add a subtle touch of glam.

follow that way

@FollowThatWay’s floral designs are perfect – take a look through her Instagram page and get inspired. So girly and romantic – the mix of blue and white feels very on-trend for spring.
