Nails, Nails, Nails… With different designs and patterns, we all look for something more unique, trendy and something that inject right into our style.
Ranging from delicate floral wreaths to undulating pastel swirls and earth-toned neutrals, there are myriad spring-appropriate options popping up on social media right now. I’ve collated seven of the best options to try at home or request from your nail technician.
1. Simple flowers
One of the most popular nail designs to DIY at home, these aesthetic (but deceptively simple) flowers can be done using a dotting tool – they range from £5 to £12 depending on which model and brand you plump for.
Start by creating one dot in an accent colour and follow up by surrounding it with dots of a different colour. Voila, you have a flower. If it sounds too simple to be true, that’s because it is. Paint your non-dominant hand first to get an idea of what you want the design to look like. Beautiful on a clear, natural and colour-blocked base.
2. Low-key neutrals
Neutral tones will never go out of fashion. They pair well and feel effortlessly chic. However, don’t think that limits you to a spectrum of browns, blacks and pinks. These non-vibrant neutrals are the perfect example of pairing earthy tones with a nude base to create an elegant hybrid nail design that still feels fun.
3. Pastel tips
A more subtle way to wear pastel without verging into full bridesmaid territory, these rounded, soft tips are a wonderful nod to the new season.
4. Spring swirls
Negative space nail designs are nothing new, but when combined with spring-ready colours like baby blue, butter yellow and pale green, they feel fresh and light again.
