Before you know it, temperatures will start to rise, flowers will begin to bloom and spring will be in full effect. To get into the spirit, we’re starting with our nails. This season, nail art trends are all about getting creative. Think: embellished nail designs, fresh takes on classic looks and maximalist vibes. Read on to get inspired by eight nail art trends that we predict will be everywhere this spring.

What Nail Colors Are Trending?

From pale pastel shades to bold greens, these are the manicure and pedicure colors we can’t wait to try this season.

Updated Pastels 

We know, we know, pastels for spring — so groundbreaking. But a bright, almost fluorescent take on the shade feels fresh and edgy, especially when paired with cool gold swirls and an otherwise minimalist design, as seen here.

Sheer Nudes

Minimalists, rejoice! A sheer, milky nail is always classic and is a refreshing departure from the reds and berry tones you’ve been reaching for all winter.

Pops of Green

As the first green buds of spring start to grow, you’re also going to notice a lot more green manis popping up on your feed. Pairing a kelly green shade with nearly nude accent nails is a cool way to dip your toe (or your fingertips) into the trend.

What Are the Trends for Nails in 2022?

Prints, gemstones, and modern spins on the classic French tips are all top nail art trends right now. 

Bedazzled Everything

From embellished eye makeup to gemstone-studded hair, rhinestones are everywhere this season. A neutral base complements any look.

Colorful French Tips

French tips are back in a big way, especially in punchy shades like blue and green. Rock a tonal ombre look with a different hue on each nail.

Bejeweled French Tips

A combination of two of our favorite trends, a classic French tip gets a glam upgrade with sparkly embellishments. These XXL tips are seriously showstopping.

Floral Accents

This soft yellow color and delicate floral accents are exactly what come to mind when we think of spring. DIY the look with Essie Sing Songbird Along.

Mixed Print Manis

Afraid to commit to just one shade or pattern? Have fun with smiley faces, flowers and checkerboard prints, or whatever designs suit your fancy. This is a fun and eclectic way to switch up your set for spring.
