It's almost officially springtime, and that means one thing. No, we're not talking about floral fashion (we know, groundbreaking). We're talking about the change in nail inspo. Once the weather gets slightly warmer, we're ready to change up our nail colors and switch from muted, darker hues to pastels and neon colors. But why not liven up the tones in your makeup, too? Given the popularity of monochrome, this is the time to have some fun with your look and match your makeup to your manicure. Need some inspiration to try it out? We've got you covered! Below, we're sharing five spring nail looks — with some matching makeup tips.
1. PINK FRENCH
Nothing says spring like pink — and the brighter, the better. If you're afraid of "too much pink" on the nails, you can just paint the tips with a rosado tone. To match the look, you can reach for our Bon Bon Matte Lipstick, a flattering hue with a bold matte finish.
2. FLOWER POWER
Why not dive into the expected and embrace florals for spring with this delicate manicure? If your nail design is soft like this, you can let your makeup pack a punch, and that's where our viral Aalia Blush comes in. Not only does it match the colors of this nail art, but a little goes a long way, and it has staying power.
La primavera is the perfect time to experiment with more colors, so get creative with an array of shades on your eyes and nails. You can experiment with a multi-color cut crease using our Goddess Palette and a similarly-hued checkered manicure like this one.
4. SOMETHING ABOUT BLACK
For those who love wearing black year-round, we haven't forgotten about you. You can play with the color as a fun design over a visible neutral base with spring-like details. This look pairs perfectly with a bold black liner like our Liquid Eyeliner Pen, which never goes out of style.
5. SHIMMERY TOUCH
You can't go wrong with gold in any season. Embrace the metallic hue with an accent nail and a flattering highlighter — you'll glow right into the springtime season.
