This past weekend served as a glorious reminder of our love for St. Patrick's Day. But the adoration runs far deeper than green dress codes, Shamrock Shakes, or abundant cheers-ing. In fact, it's the onset of spring (the holiday just always feels like the unofficial inauguration) that truly makes the day feel, well, lucky. And finally, as of yesterday, the season of showers and flowers has officially arrived. Thus, bring on the spring nail designs.
And while dreamy temperatures and skin-warming rays may still be lagging behind the spring equinox, we're ahead of the game where spring nail designs are concerned. So much so that we've already handpicked 30 stunning options we think you'll spring for. (So sorry—just had to.) Excited? Keep scrolling for the prettiest spring nail designs we've ever laid eyes on.
We're still (very happily) riding the mermaid wave, and this tonal turquoise manicure—complete with scale-inspired foil pieces—couldn't have us more in the mood for a dip.
Paired with a bright hit of robin's-egg blue, a few mini cacti just fuels our spring fever.
There's something that feels so refreshingly spring about pairing a pure pop of lemon with a wash of powder blue. Plus, the geometric zigzag looks kind of like a lightning bolt. April showers, right?
For a rosy disposition this season, we highly recommend not only wearing a Rose Quartz hue on your tips (To match your hair!) but also add an actual rose as well. An accent on just one finger is far from fussy.
Speaking of unexpected—go for a matte look, but make it slime inspired. Mei, a celeb and fashion-favorite manicurist extraordinaire, continues to inspire us. Plus, the poppy blue and purple colors are so sweet.
These lavender nails are spring personified. Abstract painted faces, inspired by Erno Laszlo, add a delicate, artistic touch that's unique to each accent nail. Recreate this look at home with a few simple swipes of a detailing brush.
Get a professional-looking mani with the ease of DIY! The stunning floral bouquets look expert-level but are actually the Everyday Boquet stickers from Olive and June ($8).
