With light nights approaching and pastels filling up our screens as we scroll, what better way to start the next month then with some cute nail inspo? To get you in the spring spirit, we’ve rounded up the ultimate Easter nail art ideas you can take with you throughout the season.

Perfect pastels

@charsgelnails_

As always pastels have made a return just in time for spring! This simple yet effective look makes your nails pop and takes no time at all. Simply paint the base of your nail your desired shade, we recommend using a light nude or just a clear basecoat to really make the colours stand out. Next, take a range of stunning pastels and using a smaller detailed brush, paint dainty hearts across your nail. We love the Jessica Phenom Sweet Talk in shade ‘Smooth Talker for the perfect duck egg blue.

Utterly egg-cellent

If you want to introduce Easter glam into your nail look, choose a speckled egg design! Not only does it look subtle but it’s also a great twist on your standard spotty nail. Simply paint your nail your desired shade and leave it to dry completely. To create the speckles you can either dip a detailer brush into a brown varnish and apply, or if you’re not afraid to get messy you can take a thin fan brush such as the MYKITCO. 0.9, lightly coat the tips in varnish and ‘spray’ it onto your nails by pinging the brush forward and backwards. It’s as easy as that!

Tasteful tips

@charsgelnails_

If you’re a fan of simple looks, switching up the colour of your tips is a simple yet effective way to make a statement. Start by taking a small brush and creating an outline of your tip, don’t worry if this is messy, this is just for guidance! Next, take your desired colours and fill in the tips of your nails, we love the essie Nail Polish Unicorn Sparkles Duo Kit for an added bit of glam. Clean any mess up with a cotton bud and finish with a streak of gold to create a bold outline.

Florals for spring? Ground-breaking!

@evemeetswest

Would it really be Easter without some cute florals?! Say bye-bye to winter with this fresh spring look. Adding flowers into your look can be as easy or as intricate as you please, you can keep them as the focus of the design or can incorporate them as an added touch. We recommend using the nails inc. Gen Yellow Nail Varnish Duo 2 for the ultimate pop of colour.
