Whether the actual weather is on board or not, Spring is definitely in the air — our allergies told us so. They also told us we need to try some spring nail ideas instead of just letting our Christmas nails continue to wear out their welcome. They’re very demanding.
There are plenty of fresh ways to welcome springtime into your manicure, from soft pastels to vibrant neons, flowers to strawberries, and geometric nail art to mismatched designs. As long as you stay away from the pollen, your set will be set!
15 Creative Spring Nail Ideas for 2023
1. Groovy Spring Nails
Austin Powers may say “Groovy baby!” But we say, “these snozzberries taste like snozzberries.”
2. Lemon Nail Design
“Easy peasy lemon squeezy” is what we’re trying to think as we attempt to recreate this look. But driving to the salon sounds less difficult difficult lemon difficult when it comes to nail art.
3. Pastel Rainbow Tips and Emoji Nails
Pastel rainbow tips, hearts, smiley faces, and gold bands. We have no idea what’s going on; we’re just here for this Coachella-ready nail art.
4. Strawberry Nail Art
There’s nothing like matching your nails to your errands. Just last week, we were sporting our oil change nails!
5. Chrome Pastel Mermaid Nails
No, we won’t show you our super secret seashell hunting spot. But we will draw you an elaborate treasure hunting map for it. Whether this Spring nail design reminds you of unicorn horns or mermaid tails, the answer is yes.

The design is giving “flower power,” but the length is giving “please help me button my pants.”
