6 spring nail ideas for 2022

While the weather may not be spring-ing, your nails certainly can be.

Spring is one of my favourite times of year: the prospect of lighter evenings, warmer weather, tulips cropping up in my garden and, of course, spring fashion and beauty trends.

The SS22 catwalks were awash with soft colours and patterns on the nails of models, from those walking the runway for Ulla Johnson (simple, warm nudes) to Sandy Liang (light coloured bases with contrasting flower stickers). Of course, soft girls vibes are to be expected in spring, but I also noticed a touch of fun, girly accents at Markarian (red, heart-shaped gems) and Collina Strada (metallic pink French tips).

Over the past year, I've tried quite a few colours and designs which would suit a spring nail perfectly. Here are six of my favourite nail ideas to show your nail tech!

Nude nails and crystals

I chose The Gel Bottle base colour 'Dolly' for this manicure, with clear nail gems in the centre of the nail, close to the cuticle. Make sure your tech uses a good layer of top coat to secure your gems in place, so that they don't fall off once you've stepped foot outside the salon!

White sparkly nails

This is such a simple design, but it still feels a bit special. It's a white base with a sparkly polish on top to bring some dimension to the design.

Purple with daisy nail art

Lilac is one of my favourite colours, and I'm constantly having to stop myself asking for it each time I visit the salon. I asked for three daisies on each ring finger, and this is how it turned out.

Green heart nail art

Admittedly, I asked for these nails as an alternative Valentine's Day design, but I think they work perfecty for a cute spring nail. The green shade is 'Elder Flower' by The Gel Bottle.

Classic nude nails

You can't go wrong with nude, whatever your preferred shade. I paired this manicure with a stiletto shaped nail.

Bottega green nails

This shade of green was so on-trend in summer 2021, but green also works so well for spring, mirroring those fresh, healthy hues we see in the natural world at this time of year.
