Spring Nail Trends You Need to Try

Spring Nail Trends You Need to Try

With Spring on the horizon, we’re trading our Winter blues for the excitement of sunnier weather. These Spring nail trends mean swapping block shades for playful prints, and deep burgundy’s for pastels and nudes. Want to mix things up but don’t know where to start? Don’t fret, we have curated a list of nail art trends we predict to be huge for 2022. Start simple, or go straight to the more intricate designs – we’ve picked something for everyone. So, whether you’re a nail art novice, or a pro looking for fresh inspiration, you can give yourself a manicure with one of these spring nail art designs.

Last summer, we teamed up with Isabel May who created a step-by-step tutorial for a range of cool nail art designs – check out the Power Moves video for more nail art ideas here.

A Take On Tips

A Take On Tips

A fresh take on the classic French manicure. This simple look is worth trying. Whether you want to wear a bright shade, or something more muted, this works with any colour. Can’t decide which to pick – why not try a different shade on each finger?

 

@isabelmaynails created this look using Nigeria – we love using deep, rich tones.

Pastel Clouds

Pastel Clouds

Fun and relatively easy to recreate is the cloud nil art trend. Float away on pastel hues, keeping the same shade throughout or alternating between nails. The key to nailing this trend (pun intended) is to keep your base colour sheer and neutral.

 

We LOVE this by @theoverglowedit – it’s giving us serious Spring vibes.

Reptile Print

Reptile Print

A fresh take on the tortoise trend, this reptile print nail art is sophisticated and impressive. It may look intricate, however it’s easier than you think to recreate. Complimenting deeper shades keeps this looking expensive, and you won’t have to worry about your outfit – these shades go with everything.

 

Do like @millibbeauty and choose subtle tones to keep this look understated and versatile.

 

Recreate with: Cameroon and Mali

Abstract French

Abstract French

If you want a Spring spin on your usual French manicure, try incorporating colour and abstract shapes. A look that’s so cool right now but not too in your face is what we like to call ‘Abstract French’. It’s the perfect way to use our favourite shades together.

 

@nails_of_la uses red and nude in her take on this trend, but you can use any variation you like.

Neutral Gingham

Neutral Gingham

Love print? This one’s for you. This versatile design can be recreated using any colours so feel free to go as bold as you like. We prefer to use neutral tones so that they compliment every outfit as the perfect accessory.

 

@beautyworksbyamy has got it SO right with this look, using muted brown and peach shades.

 

Recreate with: Lira, Tanzania, Morocco

Half Moon

Half Moon

An inverted French manicure, with a difference. The Half Moon nail design is a simple look that adds a real chic factor to any outfit. Choose complimenting shades or clashing hues, just be sure to keep nails round to mimic the design.

 

@beautyworksbyamy leads by example with shades on opposite ends of the colour spectrum proving that colour clashing can look cool.
