2017 Spring Designs
Negative space – this super edgy trend is popping up in spring nail designs everywhere. The next time you want to use a stamping plate to achieve that super stylish springtime nail art, skip the basecoat colour. Instead, stamp your design onto a nude nail, and you’re guaranteed to ace that spring-inspired nail design.
Super simple flowers – flowers are a springtime staple since they start popping up everywhere once the snow takes its leave. To recreate a dewy meadow full of sweet and fragrant flowers, use the Floral Swirl stamping plates to add a simple touch of spring to your tips.
Sweet Songbirds – You know springtime is on its way when the birds start to sing. For an ode-to-birds nail design, grab the Itty Bitty Birds stamping plate and get to work. These super detailed birds will give your nail design an edge. Be sure to use on-point polish colours to really maximize your efforts.
New-ish Neutrals – Neutral-coloured tips are all the buzz this spring. Remember sitting at your desk in class painting your fingernails with Wite-Out®? We do! And that’s why we love seeing this look in style. To mix trends, leave your nail bare and stamp a white butterfly on your accent nail for an instant nail design winner.
2017 Spring Nail Shapes
You’ve no doubt witnessed the trends over previous years. From short, blunt nails that look chewed off to stiletto-point tips, each season carries its own brand of nail shapes. Here’s a look at some of this year’s popular springtime shapes:
- Oval – this timeless shape will continue to be popular for decades to come. When in doubt, always go with an oval shape.
