If you're in LA, it's getting warmer and you can feel spring coming your way. If you're not in LA... Well, we're sorry. Either way, spring is coming and it's time to update your nail game. We asked our staff to share their picks for nail colors. Check out these great nail looks for spring!
I love a French manicure! It's the perfect nail look for every occasion, but I'm down to mix it up for spring! Instead of the traditional style, I could totally see myself rocking the multicolored tips. I love the pastels and how it's just the right amount of color without being overbearing. - Jasmin
This nail look is so cute to me! It's a softer color, but it still adds a bit of a pop. It's somewhere between a power blue and a turquoise, which I think would look good on brown skin. I think it's fresh and clean for spring. :) - Serena
These nails have been “spotted” on several of the models from New York Fashion Week. The dotted look is fun, cute, and easy to do yourself! Expect to see much more of this style come Spring, with bright colors and Easter pastels. - Ava
These nails are so pretty! After months of winter, it's exciting to get to wear bright pink, and the gold glitter really makes them pop. - Jillian
This is a fresh, fun take on the classic french manicure. This color duo is chic yet playful, but different combos will deliver different levels of intensity. I love that it's simple enough to do at home! - Lindsey
I love this Union Jack French. With the Olympics going on, it's fun to show some national pride on your nails. - Beth
I like a little bit of a design on my nails when I'm feelin' funky. Not something over the top, with chains and jewels hanging down but I do like a bit of creativity. Hey! Your nail bed is your canvas! This look is cute but not too much for work. - Serena
I LOVE coral! It's one of those universal colors that looks good on every skin tone and it's fun! I typically keep it as a mainstay for my pedicures during the warmer months, but I know it would look just as fabulous on my hands. - Jasmin
I love this look! The classic light pink works on several different skin tones and the girly nail art is subtle enough to wear at the office. It kind of reminds me of an Easter egg -- perfect for spring! - Lindsey
Spring is just around the corner which means it’s time to start thinking about fabulous weather, bold accessories, SHOES, fashion and the season’s hottest nail colors and trends. Let’s face it, nothing can make or break an outfit like your nails. Last season, everyone was in a frenzy about, dark grays, different shades of blue, brown and let’s not forget about the shatter polish everyone was rocking. This season is all about bold and vibrant colors, nail art, green, glitter and metallic.
Going green has never been easier as it will be the hottest nail color for the season. Stick to softer shades of green like pistachio, mint and sage. Although these are softer shades of green, they will certainly stand out and make a bold statement with any outfit.

Creamy Neutrals and pastels
Each season has a natural option. During the fall and winter seasons, the neutral options are typically black, brown, navy and gray. This spring, stick to pale pinks, sheer beige and shades of nude that are close to your skin tone to pull off a flawless and classic look.

Bold Brights and Neons
Nothing says “Spring is Here!” better than bright bold colors. This season try tangerine, fuchsia, chartreuse and coral. Bold nails are a great way to spice up an outfit as an added pop of color. Also, try matching your nail color to your lipstick or shoes when wearing a neutral outfit as a fun color accent.

Take a walk on the wild side this season with some nail art. You can add cheetah print, stripes, circles, lace, tie dye and so much more with Sally Henson’s Nail Effects. They are strips of nail polish that are applied like stickers and then are shaped to your nails. The best part is that there is no dry time so you can jump right back into your busy schedule without waiting around for your nails to dry. If you’re not that adventurous, try adding rhinestones, a small design or two tones to your nails which is a sure way to spruce up a basic manicure while expressing your fun personality.
