Nail It

It’s less intimidating to make a risqué statement with your nail polish than with a pair of pants. Your style of nail, or polish choice can transform your look instantly. If you’re looking liven up your nails this Spring, here are some of the best nails trends to try!

NailIt-Pastel

Pastels, Of-course 

Featured in every spring nail collection this year, it’s clear pastels are going to be thriving this spring. Aren’t they always? Opaque pastels on your nails contrast the dark winter we’ve weathered and are a pretty accent to all your spring-inspired outfits.

NailIt-MetallicShift

Metallic Shift

It’s got a futuristic feel to it. The “galaxy theme” is a rising trend in fashion, and giving it a shot on your nails will be sleek and different for spring. Plus color-shifting polish is always cool to look at.

NailIt-WhiteOut

White Out

With opaque formulas that leave fingers looking sophisticated, immaculate and daring, white-hot nails are on the rise. White will compliment all your outfits and is a fresh trend you might want to try this spring.

NailIt-Highlighter

Highlighter

Bright colors are in for spring, especially on your fingers. While wearing full-on lime green or yellow might seem scary, it’s not as heart-stopping to have your nails rock it out. After months in less daylight and creating an infinite amount of black on black ensembles – the bright touch is a nice change of pace.

NailIt-halfmoon

Half Moon

The look gives off an elegant yet edgy feel. The trend can be pulled off multiple ways and the design can be tailored to personal taste and style. You could be a pastel half moon, lime green, white, or aim for a darker shade. This is a great spring trend to experiment with.

NailIt-nontradfrench

Non Traditional French

Not limited to black, pink, or horizontal lines. The nontraditional French can be nude and black, and a diagonal triangle or a matte black and black line for the French tip, as spotted at NYFW. Another interesting trend to channel your taste into.

NailIt-Striped

Striped

Nothing crazy here; we’re not going zebra. For the look, all you’ll need is your choice of base color and stripe color. NYFW went with black and white as their choice of stripe color but you can opt for whatever your little heart desires. Gather your inspiration and design your nails into something fun this spring.

NailIt-NudeNeutrals

Nude Neautrals

With the creation of opaque formulas, neutrals have blossomed into a trend for spring. The look is classy and makes the statement something along the lines of “clean start for spring” – love it.

Butter London , Givenchy , L’Oreal , Insta-Dry , Zoya

NailIt-SheerColor

Sheer Color

The look is simple yet more interesting than the regular solid color. This trend is expected to be extremely popular for the warmer weather. OPI actually released a whole line of sheer colors you might want to try out this Spring!
