If your Easter traditions involve a morning church service or big family brunch — with aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents — this Sunday’s holiday is going to look very different. With social distancing mandates in place across the country, Easter 2021 will likely translate to an afternoon Zoom session. But even if you’re alone in your apartment you can still dress up in your favourite floral top (and sweatpants) and show the whole fam your latest DIY quarantine project: a happy, spring-y manicure.
Ahead, we’ve rounded up our favourite nail art designs for spring, loosely inspired by Easter’s classic pastel colour palette. From cotton candy-hued florals to buttercup-yellow polka dots, scroll through to find the DIY design you’ll want on your fingernails from Easter Sunday straight through to May.
Celebrity nail artist Kim Truong designed this baby pink flower-printed manicure for Tia Mowry, and we were instantly inspired.
Try a lavender ombré manicure with a tiny daisy accent nail.
If you can DIY a classic French manicure, make yours fresh for spring by trading the white tip for a neon pink one.
A shiny, bare-naked base is the chicest backdrop to any bouquet accent art.
“You can paint a single blossom on each finger, or mix and match your bouquet with press-on stickers,” says Sarah Gibson Tuttle, founder of L.A. nail chain Olive & June.
Negative-space nail art isn’t going anywhere, and we love the idea of infusing it with a bright peach or mango polish to make the minimalist design really pop.
Opt for a solid cornflower blue on every nail, or add teensy petal detailing to make it extra special.
While we love a trendy take on polka dots — muted in tone and speckled, a la Ariana Grande’s — these big, bright, and perfectly-circular sprinkles are a lot more fun.
The multicoloured manicure — a different shade on each finger — is a breakout spring manicure trend, only elevated by the happy sunflowers sprinkled asymmetrically over the top.
