The last few weeks of winter have been v dreary, dark, and like, seriously fucking depressing. It doesn’t help that it only matches my daily mood, chronic RBF, and go-to outfit of black leggings with a dark oversize sweater. To help fast forward to spring and brighten up my boring-ass life, I’ve decided to treat myself (as per usual) to a much-needed manicure that resembles a cheery spring. Prepare to think twice before grabbing your usual black polish, because these are the spring nail trends and colors you’ll want to try right now.
Chrome is like, super trendy rn, so in addition to a flashy phone case, metallic colors will look just as cute on your nails. Rose gold is def the best metal to choose (fucking duh), so feel free to contrast an accent finger with a millennial pink or rosy mauve.

I’m not one for having my nails look like an acid trip, but a simple iridescent or pearlescent top coat can be just the right extra touch if you’re looking to add a little more to a basic mani. Stick to light shades like summer white or pale pink for a shiny au naturale set you can match with everything.
Pastels for spring are nothing special. Surprise, sur-fucking-prise. The pastel version of literally any color will be a good option for bright, cheery nails that basically make you look somehow tanner and all-around a better person. The most popular spring nail trends will def be baby blue, bright orange, pale pink, and mint green. You’re welcs.
4. Soft Yellow
Yellow nails are typically thought of as the equivalent to brown leggings. Just a downright, flat-out, hard no. Both are disgusting and totally unflattering. But IDK, this is 2018 and things are changing pretty fast, so honestly, a soft pale yellow is considered kinda cute on your nails now. I guess it doesn’t hurt to spice up your Snapchat nailfies for warmer weather to come.
5. Black AF
Just because it’s day drinking season pretty soon, doesn’t mean our devotion to black is going away anytime soon. Break up an all black manicure with nude or neutral nail art to add some ~pizzazz~ and contrast to your nails with a color block. Stick to changing up at least one accent finger, so you don’t look like a goth freak in 70 degree weather.
