Pastels are also another option of a must-have manicure for the season. Keep the designs soft and subtle with a gradual ombre effect or polka dots for some texture. Using pale hues like aqua, lilac, peach, buttercream and baby pink as your go-to nail colors will keep them looking as colorful as an Easter egg. Add on a small rhinestone or two for a touch of glam.

If you’re not one to paint on the predictable dainty designs of spring sparkle, try some zigzags. Incorporate this cool effect onto pastel or jewel tone shades for an edgy effect. For something a bit more hip, a tribal print featuring pastel background colors will add a less harsh effect to the bold print.
