31 Looks: Cute Nails for Spring 2018

It finally looks like spring is on the horizon and we couldn’t be more ecstatic about that. It’s been a long and very cold winter for some and a very wet one for others, but spring brings drier weather, warmer temperatures, and — let’s face it — a much better mood. If you wanted to celebrate the changing of the seasons with a little bit of colour, we’ve got some nail inspiration that we think you’re going to love. With a little something for everyone, whether it’s long, short, square-tipped, oval, squoval, or pointed nails that you’re looking for, and these nails for spring 2018 are bringing so many good vibes into the CherryCherryBeauty office! We hope they bring the same happy vibes to your day too.

1 – Simple Gradient Effect Nails

It’s a very simple look, particularly when you break it down, but this mani is absolutely perfect for spring. The gradient underneath is easily achieved using a makeup sponge, and you could use a stencil to get the intricate design. We’re loving the pastels that have been put together for this spring nail look. In fact, there’s not a lot that we didn’t love about it.

3 – Buttercup Ombre & Glitter Nail Art

Buttercup shades of yellow just seem to be the perfect backdrop for these cute spring-themed nails, although we love the way that glitter has been added to bring a few more shades into the mix. That pink/purple and buttercup-yellow combination is certainly one that we can get right on board with, especially for the up and coming season.

5 – Dragonflies & Ladybugs for Spring

What do you call them? Ladybugs? Ladybirds? Technically, they’re actually beetles, rather than bugs, but we sure do love them. Their black and red spotted appearance have made them a firm favourite among big kids and little kids alike, and they’re a popular adornment for nails, especially spring-time nails. These ladybug nails also feature dragonflies, another flying critter often seen in the warmer temperatures of spring and summer. When you think about it, these nails perfectly encapsulate spring. That’s why we loved them so!

6 – Floral Embellished Long Nails for Spring

Firstly, we love that peachy shade used in these spring themed nails. Secondly, we also love the floral embellishment, adding a crown, of sorts, to the bottom of your nail look. Effective but actually quite simple, this one is a perfect fit for both long and short nails alike.

7 – Cute & Outlined Cute Nails for Spring

It is actually common practice in some places around the world to celebrate and mark the end of winter and coming of spring. In Poland, for example, and other Slavic/Baltic countries, an effigy is burnt and then throw into the river (or somewhere similar) to say goodbye. We don’t advise doing that, but we do recommend celebrating the new season in style. With nails for spring 2018 like these, perhaps? There’ll be no burning of anything going on anywhere near these beautiful talons.

8 – Hello Spring Pastel Nails

See in the spring with both colour and style, with these pastel pretties. We particularly love the watercolour effect used for the backdrop of this design, and we were even more delighted when we watched a few YouTube tutorials to see how it was done. It’s so much simpler than you’d think. A stencil, transfer, or nail decal is the perfect finishing touch, and we found some super cute ones HERE.

10 – Amazing Pastel Smoke-Effect Nails

These are such amazing nails, we had to double-take them to make sure they were real and not a photoshopped design! We’ve done our research though. They’re definitely real. They’re also definitely pretty fantastic. If you wanted your talons to stand out, perhaps to emphasise a brand new rock on your finger, we reckon this would be an epic look to take some inspiration from.

11 – Peach-Coral & Geometric Cute Nails for Spring 2018

These peachy-coral tones we’re just made for spring, and if you add a slightly more orange hue to the shade, you’ll also be enhancing the colour of your tan too. Geometric shapes have made this look different to similar coloured designs, although our imagination does run a little riot when we think of all of the other shades we could put together. Which colours would you use?

15 – Dotty About Glitter

Spring/summer 2018 fashion trends depict beautiful and colourful creations, and we think that it just makes perfect sense for your nails to follow suit. While we’re on the subject of beautiful and colourful creations, it was designers such as Gucci, Marc Jacobs, and Tom Ford that led the way with glitzy-gold delights on the catwalks for spring/summer 2018 fashion shows. If you’re a big fan of fashion, you’ll know that gold and bright pinks are definitely in-trend. These nails tick every box!

16 – Almond Shaped Cute Nails for Spring 2018

If you’d love long and strong nails so that you could achieve these beautiful nails for spring 2018 without relying on nail extensions, you’ll need to start taking care of them properly. One easy way to start is to use a strengthening base coat first. There are plenty to choose from but look for the ones that offer nutrients, hydration, and moisturising properties to get the best results, fast. When your nail base is in tip-top condition, any design you put on top of it will look a thousand times better. Poor nail condition can cause bubbling, ridges, and even a flat finish. And not the good kind of flat.

With every colour, design, and style imaginable, they have been created to make your life easier, helping you to achieve salon-finish nail designs at home, and for a fraction of the price too. There are even ways to create your own decals and wraps, first painting your design on to plastic, allowing to dry, and then placing on your nail. With a quick slick of glossy top coat over the top, no one would ever guess that you did the design yourself, in just a few short minutes.
