The 18 Spring Nail Colours You Need To Try ASAP
Let’s be honest… it’s not like we can go out and buy a whole new wardrobe every time the season changes. The easiest, most wallet-friendly (and commitment-free!) way to try out a new trend is with nail polish.
Newsflash: Pastels and variations on your go-to shades are totally ‘in’ for spring!
Nothing says 2019 quite like Pantone’s Color of the Year: Living Coral. The bright, golden orange just says ‘hello, it’s spring’, plus it looks super flattering on every skin tone. If you want to go bold, give canary yellow a go or bright Barbie pink. Both colours are eye-catching and give off a happy vibe.
If you’re going for a more mellow springtime look, you’re in luck because a few softer shades are trending this season. First, there’s sky blue. Rock the muted-down shade all over your nails. Or, try an oh-so-cool minty greens… basically lime green’s little sister. The mix between yellow and green might look a little Halloween ‘scary’ in the bottle, but it’s as easy to pull off as any pastel. Lastly, metallics are still big news (the silvers and golds are so mainstream, they’re essentially neutrals). Pair them with any look and they’ll match perfectly.
No matter which direction you go, all of these trending spring nail colours will be sure to brighten your digits…and your mood.
