This season will push you to the extremes as nail trends go from minimal to wild prints and bold patterns. Now, plan your trip to the nearest salon and find which trend to go for!
Nude, long nails
are a hit this spring! When aiming for long nails, make sure to choose a flattering shape. But, quick advice, go for the square shape, it will make your nails look cleaner, and your fingers, longer!

Paint the town RED
A classic red imbues you with Old Hollywood appeal, adding sophistication to that all black ensemble. If you’re confident enough to pull this off, why not give it a go? Try Chanel’s Dragon, a hot and creamy cherry red color as well as, Chanel’s Calypso, a sheer, wine red color.

Do a Plain Jane.
There’s nothing as simple and as clean as having your nails properly shaped, buffed, and trimmed, without color that is.

Patterns and Prints.
It’s time to go all out on prints. Be wild! Experiment with designs and patterns. If you can’t manage to go on a trip to the salon, you have the option to paint your own nails. Check “DIY” channels on YouTube and start practicing. Got no idea what prints to try? Here are some cool designs.

No it’s not what you think. You won’t be able to read the headlines. They’re newspaper-inspired-nails. In case you haven’t tried the design, you better do so now. It will surely be a conversation starter!
In case you’re wondering, you don’t need to go to a nail salon expert to get this done. No nail art machine needed either. Yes, you can do it yourself in the comforts of home. What you’ll need are: a base coat (any color of polish will do), but preferably grey to make it more realistic, rubbing alcohol, and of course a newspaper (!). How to do it? Apply the basecoat. Let it dry. Now, dip your nails into the alcohol. Get a piece of newspaper. Press the newsprint on your nails, and remove slowly. Voila!!! Newspaper nails in an instant.

Shape it up!
Enjoy coloring your nails in different shapes? Try polka dots, hearts, and squares. I find it cute, especially for spring.
