It’s only a matter of time before we begin to see flowers blooming and get to experience longer daylight hours, which means, spring is near! And since many of us tend to want to play with more fun shades when it’s warmer outside, sporting spring nail colors is a great way to update your beauty look for the new season. From classic pastels to gorgeous deep blues, the possibilities are truly endless when it comes to spring nail ideas. So grab your manicure tools, prep your nails, and read on to explore some of the best spring nail colors for 2021.
1. Mint Green
While there are tons of green shades to choose from, we love going with a minty green hue to keep things chic. The lighter and bright shade of green will give your nails a playful look.
2. Pastel Pink
Nothing says spring like a soft pink manicure! This gorgeous color looks amazing on all skin tones, making it one of our favorite spring nail color ideas.
Looking for ways to brighten up your nail look? Look no further than the color yellow. It’s one of Pantone’s 2021 color of the year winners and this look-at-me shade is meant to encourage and uplift people during hard times. This hue is also a great way to spice up your manicure and can even take your Easter beauty look to the next level.
White is a classic nail color that had to make the list. This color gives your nails a polished look and pairs well with just about any style you can dream up. Not to mention, you can make a seriously stylish statement by pairing your white nails with a white eyeliner look.
5. Baby Blue
If classic shades are your forte, then you may want to give baby blue nails a go. It’s the perfect combination of playfulness and charm—this light blue hue makes for a chic and trendy mani.
If you love to keep things on the neutral side, you can’t go wrong with nude nails. A great way to give your nails a clean-cut and put-together look, nude is a mainstay for all things spring beauty, including lipstick and eyeshadows.
Who says that neutrals are reserved for the fall and winter? If you ask us, gray is the spring nail color that keeps on giving. It’s also the second color of the year for Pantone and can work perfectly on an accent nail or a full manicure. This cool and muted shade will fit right in with your spring wardrobe.
8. Emerald Green
If you can’t resist using deep-colored hues in your beauty look, you’ll definitely want to reach for a bottle of emerald green nail polish. Your nails will look like stunning jewels in this rich and vivid shade—especially when the sunlight hits them.
Our days of feeling blue due to the cold weather won’t last for too long, thanks to the warmer temperatures ahead. However, you can still rock beautiful deep shades of blue, like navy, as a spring nail color. You can also spruce up your nail look by opting for a mismatched mani using different hues of the color.
Dare to be bold? You may want to give an oxblood nail color a try! While it’s easy to think that dark nail shades belong only in your winter nail arsenal, this stunning deep red hue will give your nails a fantastic pop of color that won’t go unnoticed.
You can never go wrong with rocking clear, natural-looking nails, and it’s a trend many people are loving this year. It’s an easy look to keep up with and DIY at home. You can even experiment with nail stickers to jazz it up.
Whether at home or in the salon, don’t forget to moisturize your hands after finishing up a manicure. This will be the key to getting an Instagram-worthy nail photo. We recommend using the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Manuka Honey All Over Balm - Face/Neck/Chest/Hands, which smells as great as it feels thanks to its honey-inspired fragrance and will work to keep your skin feeling soft and moisturized.
