30 Cute Spring Nail Design Trends And Ideas That You Need To Try Out

Spring has just arrived and with it the sun, to be honest, it’s been glorious, we’re all a bit more cheerful and the kids are loving the great outdoors. And by that, I mean our garden.

With spring comes beautiful pastel colours, pretty flowers and pretty skies. Get into the vibe of it with these fabulous Spring nail ideas which are guaranteed to get you in the mood for Spring!

1. Flower Power

Starting off these spring nail ideas with these beautiful floral nails in bright pastel shades. They are like spring in a nail and will be fun and not too hard to recreate!

2. Sky Ombre Nails

Ombre nails are an easy way to add more than one colour to your nails without your nails looking overwhelming or simply too much.

From hair to clothing, you can bring ombre into anything, but you’ve got to admit, it’s totally cute in nails! The pastel blue and pink colouring depict the sky in Spring.

3. Spring Icicles

Not ready to quite let go of winter? Don’t worry we have the perfect nails for you! Swap out your favourite winter nails with spring colours like these beautiful icicle nails!

4. Pink Daisies

Keep it simple with these lovely matte pink nails. Add an extra touch of spring with a few daisies sprinkled on! Check out a similar monochrome version in these black and white nail ideas.

5. Chrome Butterflies

Love the glitter and sparkle that the holiday season brings? Don’t ditch it, simply add a butterfly and you instantly turn the nails into spring-ready nails!

6. Pastel French Manicure

A fun twist to the classic French manicure, these nails not only add some spunk but in addition, they add some spring too with their gorgeous pastel colours.

7. Blooming Daisies

They say it’s not spring until your foot covers twelve daisies, make that a whole lot quicker by adding daises to your nails! (Although technically you’ll need to stand on them after;))

8. Wavy Pastels

Ride the wave with this wavy nail art idea! Creative, easy and fun, they are the perfect introduction to Spring!

9. As Sweet As Honey

I’m not going to lie, I’m not a fan of bees, but I do value the work they do and how important they are to our ecosystem. Raise awareness of how we need bees with these cute bee-inspired nails. They’re ideal for spring and summer nail inspiration.

10. Pink Florals

Who else is excited for the blossoms to bloom? It’s my favourite time of year, I can literally just stare at blossoms all day- don’t judge me!

For the time being, there aren’t any blossoms, probably not for another couple of weeks, but at least we can have pretty nails and some sun while we’re waiting!

11. Unicorn Nails

Even if you don’t love unicorns, you gotta love these nails! There’s just something about them that will melt even the stoniest of hearts. Jazz it up a bit with some black splatter, it gives it a fun edge and adds depth!

12. Spotted Pink

These nails can be adapted to any season and any colour, but you have to admit they look super cute in these Spring colours. If you are looking for an easy nail art idea, then this is the one for you, it’s extremely easy and extremely hard to go wrong with!

13. Taffy Pink

Pink nails work for any season, but this particular shade got the nail on the head for spring, pun intended! I’m not usually a punny person but this was too tempting!

The nails are gorgeous but so is the detailed embossed design, it looks highly effective, but in reality, it’s straightforward to copy!

14. Butterflies

Feeling extra creative? Try out these butterfly nails, while butterflies are 100% symmetrical, my advice is to cut yourself some slack. Instead of making your nails symmetrical, just have fun because no one’s going to analyse them too intensely!

15. Cherry Blossoms

No spring lookbook is complete without cherry blossoms! Cherry blossoms are my favourite part of spring! These nails are ideal if you are looking for a softer look but still want to feature spring in them. Subtle and elegant!

16. Brighter Days

Be ready for any occasion with these white, simple, yet classy nails. The white colour reminds me of brighter clearer days ahead, and you can never go wrong with a sparkly rhinestone to finish the look!

17. Bright Flowers

A different take on the classic daisy nails, these nails bring some bright colours to the table! Customise it to suit your taste, it’s versatile and easy to pull off.

18. Polka Dots Mani

Any design can be adapted for spring, be it stripes, dots or stars, as you can see with these beautiful polka-dot nails. It’s all in the details, which in this case is the stunning gradient of spring colours!

19. Glamorous Florals

Pink, purple, flowers and sparkle, if you love glam, these nails have it all!

These nails can pass for all seasons, but with the pastel colouring and pretty flowers, we think they depict spring! Don’t those flowers make you want to get close and smell them?!

20. Corals

These subtle coral nails are gorgeous! I love the coral with the black and white, it creates a beautiful contrast, yet it doesn’t look overpowering.

21. Green Gradient Nails

With greenery starting to come back into our lives, I can almost smell the freshly cut grass! Green nails aren’t for everyone, but when they are this beautiful you may just be tempted!

22. Butterfly French Manicure

One trend that has stood the test of time is the French manicure. No matter how many times it has been predicted that it’s finished, it’s still going strong! These butterfly French manicures are a fun twist to the classic French mani!

23. Blue Leaves

Brighter days bring brighter and bluer skies, and who doesn’t love a bright blue sky?! Add in some gold and branches and your spring nails are complete!

24. Yellow Sunflowers

These sunflower nails are probably more suited for the summer, but I couldn’t resist including them. They are beautiful and have so much detail, from the ombre and rhinestones to the butterflies and sunflowers!

25. Pop Of Red

Moving away from the classic pastel colours, we have these beautiful nails featuring a pop of red, flowers, lemons and some gold because why not!

26. Spring Swirls

These nails feature a nude base with delicate pastel swirls bringing the nails to life. The colour combination is gorgeous but if they’re not your thing, you can customise them to your taste!

27. Upside Down French Mani

I know we’ve included quite a few butterfly nails already, but I couldn’t pass on this one! It’s such a delicate design and I love the French tip on the wrong end!

28. Rainbow Crocs

Bringing something different to the table. These nails may not feature any flowers or butterflies but their colours are totally spring and the texture is neat!

29. Pin Striped Daisies

Another daisy nail for you, but this one has the addition of pretty red pinstripes reminding me of my wallpaper as a kid!
