This light pop of color is a fresh alternative to more expected pastel pinks and purples. The dreamy shade works beautifully on all skin tones, so if you're one to stick to pinks and reds when it comes to nail polish, venture out, and try this cool blue hue for spring.

Millennial Pink

@jinsoon

Pastel pink might not be groundbreaking for spring, but this particular shade of "millennial pink" couldn't be more relevant at the given moment. Indulge in this fresh take on the spring classic that doubles as a conversation starter.

Blush and Red

@mpnails

This flirty color combo puts a fresh spin on two popular nail colors—a classic bight red and a delicate blush. Play with tips, geometric patterns, or alternating fingers for a fun way to work both bold and subdued shades at the same time.

Easter Egg Pastels

@mpnails

Why commit to just one pastel when you can combine them for a gorgeous finish? Pale shades of blue, green, and peach complement each other effortlessly in whichever design you choose. Play around for a look that defines everything beautiful about springtime.

Light Gray

@jinsoon

If you're into more subtle stylings, a light gray in a warm tone is the perfect way to transition from winter darks to summer brights.

Black & Cream

This dramatically contrasted nail color combo brings femininity with an edge. A sharp, geometric design makes the look especially chic, reminiscent of airy chiffon and black satin ribbon.

Tangerine

@jinsoonchoi

Tangerine was a surprising shade to see thrown into the mix, but seeing it paired with spring grays and pastels, the bright hue makes sense. The splash of color is a welcome departure from winter while still steering clear of being too summery too soon.
