Forget cleaning! Spring is all about color. Sunny up your look with a manicure (or pedicure) meant for warmer weather. An an editor for Nails Magazine, I see a lot of eye-catching mani ideas come across my desk. Click through to see the nail looks I am loving for spring:
Just in time for festival season, wear colorful mash-ups of chevrons, prints, and other geometric details.
While we usually think of high-shine when we think nails, the latest trend is actually to remove that glossy finish. Opt for a single color or nail art, then don’t be afraid to add a matte top coat for effect.
Nail art aficionados have been looking to Japan for inspiration for a while. Embrace wearable and whimsical works of art by opting for embellishments, oval shapes, and shorter lengths. http://www.nailsmag.com/article/107599/10-japanese-nail-trends-to-watch
There were lots of linear styles at New York Fashion Week. Sometimes a simple line is all it takes to add that extra something. Go minimal with a side part or maximize it with a grid or lattice look. Spring/ Summer 2015.
This urban-inspired look of drips, splatters, and a plethora of color add the perfect edge to a spring manicure. Get a tutorial for this look here.
Showing a little skin is definitely popular in the spring and summer months. If you feel like you still need to work on your waistline a bit, you can take the skin-baring trend to your nails instead by leaving clear space in the design. This peek-a-boo effect is known as negative space.
Try a French, solid color, nail art or a little bling -- but whatever you do, make sure you’re maintaining your feet. After months of being stuffed in socks it’s time to break out the open-toed shoes, so schedule a pedicure.
