The colors of spring nails tend to be a bit of a gamble. It is not that I do not like the concept of soft and dreamy pastels coating my nails when it is dark and gray outside. But let me ask you a simple question: have you ever come across a quality pastel shade, a shade that doesn’t scratch or look sad and limpid once it slides off the brush? In my experience, this is a rare find.
This year, I therefore set out to find the best colors of spring nails, those that are as beautiful on your hands as in the bottle. To eliminate the failures, I turned to a few nail artists famous for their expertise. (If it’s good enough for a track or a red carpet, it certainly works for me.) The result: 27 remarkable shades that are perfect worn alone, mismatched or with the biggest models of spring studs. Of course, there are a lot of soft blues, fresh lilacs and iterations of pink. But experts say egg yolks, punchy corals and tomato red are just as big this year.
Also important: they all contain smooth, long-lasting formulas that are actually easy to use if you paint your nails at home. Scroll down for the batch of professionally approved spring nail polish shades this year.
