Out of all the seasons, spring has to be up there as one of my faves. Autumn will always reign supreme (it’s *spooky season* after all), but this time of year also has a pretty magical feel to it.
The temperature is beginning to pick up, cute flowers have sprung and the joys of summer are right around the corner. For someone like me who hates hot hot weather, spring is about as good as it gets.
Another thing I love? A new season of manicures, ofc. Spring nail art is defined by pretty pastels, kitschy gingham and daisies galore. It’s pretty, it’s cute and it’s gentle, especially in comparison to the seasons that have preceded (winter nail art and Halloween mani’s, I’m looking at you).
The most important thing about this new season is ensuring your nails are feeling their strongest and healthiest, which means before you pop to the salon, a touch of nail maintenance can make all the difference.
Think oils, creams and of course, SPF before your mitts reach the UV lamp.

Don’t reserve neon for your summer holidays; start manifesting warmer weather now with some fine neon tips.
Butterflies are everywhere in fashion right now, thanks to the Y2K style renaissance. So, why not add a splash of ‘00s fun to your mani? Plus, Spring is butterfly season with the first ones creeping out mid-March.

Cute daisies are synonymous with spring, so embrace the trend with this design, which looks lovely on a couple of fingers as well as all over.
If you don’t fancy nail art, a sunny, bright pastel yellow is a great way to embrace the new season.
Want tips but with a difference? These lilac ones with yellow outlines epitomise spring beautifully. Chic and cool, check, check.
Get artistic with your florals and embrace the watercolour trend. This may require a steady hand, but the results sure are worth it.

A classic and yet still a winner in my eyes, these pastel tips will get you excited for Easter.
Who said pastels reigned supreme in spring? Go as bright as you desire as the months begin to get warmer.
Swirls, flowers and muted tones: this design has it all.
If you fancy something a little more modern and less ‘pretty’ per se, this simple design is ideal for in-between months.
If pretty pastels or bold brights just aren’t your thing, keep it super simple and chic with nudes, beiges and whites.
This look is so cute for this time of year!
’70s looks are great for spring because of their mellow, laid-back nature. Try this one to kick things off.
