Six Spring Nail Art Trends To Inspire Your Next Salon Visit!


Whether you’re heading straight to a professional as soon as nail salons open, or you’re going to stick to the DIY manicures you’ve mastered over the last few months, you’re likely going to need some inspo! So, to help out, we’ve scrolled what feels like the entirety of Instagram to bring you our FAVOURITE spring nail art trends!

From ditsy florals to sassy swirl patterns, there are so many gorgeous styles to influence your next nail appointment… The only struggle we’re finding is picking which design we want to try first!

1. Sassy Swirls

Bold and bright, subtle and subdued; whatever you’d prefer, sassy swirl designs are on the top of our nail art to do list!

2. Animal Print Pastels

A trend that reappears season after season, it’s safe to say animal print isn’t going anywhere! But, to give this style a spring feel, nail artists have given it a pastel touch! Whether it’s actual animal print in pastel shades or alternating nails in block colours and black and white leopard/zebra/cow designs, we can’t get enough!

3. 90s Baby

We’d forgotten how much we love 90s kitsch! Bold and garish, yet still totally on trend, we love these bright designs – made up of smileys, checks and Simpsons inspired clouds!

4. Ditsy Florals

After something more subtle and cute? Ditsy floral nail art ideas are everywhere this spring! Cute daisy designs are up there with our favourites.

5. Picnic Blanket Checks

Spring wouldn’t be spring without picnic blanket inspired checks. Just look at all your favourite clothing brands – gingham is everywhere. So why not bring this trend to your nails too?

6. Feeling Fruity

Bananas or blueberries? Mangos or melons? Fruity nail art is taking over our Insta feeds right now and we can’t get enough!

I'm someone who loves getting glammed up, but I feel like I never have enough time. Frequently running between work, the gym and seeing friends means my makeup routine is quick and often touched up on the go. Therefore, beauty products that serve as multi-purpose are perfect for me - a blush that works for cheeks and lips is a must in my makeup bag!
