Each year, we wait with bated breath to see Essie's new spring nail polish launches, thanks to the brand's expertise in creating perfect pastels. Springtime and pastels go hand in hand, which is why we think there's no better way to celebrate the change of seasons and the slow turn toward warmer and longer days than by treating ourselves to a cheery new manicure (wouldn't you agree?). There's just something about bright, freshly painted nails that draws us out of our winter funk and into a state of new spring beauty inspiration and optimism.

This year, as always, the brand didn't disappoint. It recently launched a six-shade collection of nail polishes that were each inspired by the sea, the sun, and the sand—and gave Byrdie the exclusive first look. The shades run the gamut between sea-foam green and tropical orange, and (big surprise) we're obsessed. That's why we had to show you two new original nail designs that feature the new collection. They were created by celebrity nail artist Steph Stone, and they're sure to get spring and summer manicure inspiration flowing.
