Spring nail ideas

By  | 

Depending on where you live, this past weekend was FINALLY a taste of spring.  At least at my house we had sunshine, singing birds and flowers starting to bloom.  About damn time!  And that got me thinking… what spring nail ideas should I be thinking about right now.  Here are a few from my gallery that may give you an idea for your own great spring mani!

To me, the ladybug mani is always fun for spring and really easy to do.  All you have to do is paint your nail red, add a black moon to the tip, and a line down the center. Follow that with some dots and some eyes and you’re done!  The butterfly pattern is also a great option, but I’ve never personally attempted that one.

I called this one “The Birds are Singing“.  It’s a very simple spring mani with a couple of accent nails.  Birds are perfect for spring!

This one is a double stamp using spring pastels and flowers.  You can’t go wrong with flowers any time of year in my opinion, but they’re especially appropriate in the spring when everything is starting to bloom.  It’s also a good opportunity to try a double stamp!

You can’t go wrong with a simple dotticure!  All you need is a dotting tool or a toothpick… whatever you happen to have handy.  Any color that makes you smile is a perfect choice.  Here are a couple of examples.  One is more on the simple and sophisticated side and one is more bright and playful.

I think the #1 thing to remember when dreaming up your next spring mani is ‘make it fun’.  Spring is all about fun and fresh colors and designs.  Pastels, birds, ladybugs… whatever makes you happy 😉
