It can feel like there are very few silver linings when it comes to the pandemic we’ve been enduring for over a year. Thankfully, those of us whose work situations and sense of responsibility facilitate staying home have found little ways to make social distancing as enjoyable as possible. For many, that has meant becoming accomplished nail-painters, and with that comes an appetite for lots of new nail polishes to keep things from getting boring.
A new season means lots of new shade releases from all of your favorite brands, as well as some you may not yet know. And when you see the below, it will become instantly apparent to you that spring nail colors aren’t limited to only pretty pastels and subtle neutrals — though those are more than welcome to come to the springtime nail-polish party. The trendiest shades of the season include deep hues carrying over from winter, iridescent and holographic potions, unexpected takes on classic colors, and every imaginable version of green.
We’re about to make padding your spring nail-polish wardrobe so much easier. Here, you’ll find the colors that will have you collecting compliments through April showers, May flowers, and well into summer.
