Spring has finally arrived, so we’re running with it and trying everything from floral makeup looks to sunflower nails. We’ve been seeing the floral nail design everywhere these days, and we like to think it’s a sign that everyone else is excited about the warming weather too (or just really into these reclaimed hippie-esque flowers). We’ve rounded up our favorite iterations of the look ahead — bring them to your next manicure appointment, or attempt them on your own if you’re brave.


Big Sunflower Energy

This nail look combines matte ombré with 3D nail art, using acrylic to build a pop-out sunflower that looks like a flower in full bloom.

A Sunflower Accessory

Sunflowers make for a great accent nail, too, as evidenced by this look from Georgia-based nail tech @nailartbyvic.

Glossy, Glossy

This glossy take on the 3D sunflower is one we’ll be thinking about for a while (and copying this season and beyond).

The Essence of Sunflower

Sunflower-inspired nails are a mood, too — this solid yellow manicure is proof.

A Little Greenery

This artsy take on the sunflower combines three of our favorite things: nail art, matte polish and almond-shaped nails.

We love this minimal sunflower nail look, complete with naked nails and fun, sunflower art.

Classic with a Twist

Yellow and red are a stunning combo, so feel free to try sunflower nail art on a few nails to take any look to the next level.
