8 Spring Nail Trends That Are Going to Flood Your IG This Season
February 18, 2020
Before you know it, temperatures will start to rise, flowers will begin to bloom and spring will be in full effect
. It’s our favorite season because it’s when we start to revamp our beauty routines, starting with our nail looks. Now is the best time to switch up your mani from those dark, moody winter hues
to something a little more in-season. Think: fun, floral designs
and all the pastel shades
. To help you pick what nail art is worth trying this season, we pulled together a list of spring nail trends that we predict will flood your IG in 2020.
Stained Glass Nails
Inspired by the beautiful mosaics often seen on church windows, stained glass nails are the latest and greatest nail trend to land on our radars. We stan the intricate details and bright colors of this manicure, especially when you add a little bit of glitter like the version shown here.
Modern Art Manis
Okay, so we’ve been seeing these abstract, modern art manicures taking over IG lately and to say we’re obsessed is an understatement. There are no rules to this manicure, which means you can create whatever shapes and choose whatever colors your heart desires. We guarantee the end result will look nothing less than an actual piece of artwork.
Animal Tip Print Nails
Remember tortoiseshell nails? Well, animal-print manis aren’t going anywhere this season and we’re here for it. Instead of covering your entire nail, though, focus the printed designs on the tip for a French manicure with a stunning twist.
Calling all minimalist beauty lovers: Consider this nail trend an ode to your love of simple and chic beauty. Decorating your manicure with small, dainty designs is going to be a major hit this spring. Whether you go for dots, stars or thin lines, the key to this trend is less is more.
French Manicure Variations
The French manicure is back and better than we all remember. Instead of opting for your traditional white painted tip, experiment with different colors and even shapes, all while keeping the bottom portion of your nail a natural, nude color. It’s playful, fun and super creative.
Let’s be real, is it really spring without pastels? Of course not. To help you get the perfect mani, try any shade from the Essie Flying Solo Collection
. It includes a range of cool- and warm-toned pastel shades that have us swooning.
Cow print nails
had a major moment in the summertime, and we predict they’re coming back this spring. Whether it’s for the classic white and black hues that go with everything or the fact that it’s yet another chic animal print, we promise you’re going to see these nails everywhere this season.
Creating some kind of half moon shape on your mani proves to be very popular this spring. Some like to make the crescents their entire manicure, like this golden variation, while others keep the half moon closer to their nail bed for a subtle embellishment, like this option, here
