A basic French manicure may be so 90s, but we’ve seen modernized versions strutting down the catwalk. Add edge to this classic look with a stripe of vibrant blue like the nail art designs at Alice + Olivia Spring 2018.
Layer Your Details

You don’t have to wait until the Fourth of July to sport a red, white and blue manicure. Sandwich negative space between two bold colors for a look that can take you from day to night.
Metallic shades are so on trend when it comes to your nails. Swipe on your favorite color from silver to rose gold to pewter and you’ve got a shiny nail look that’s appropriate for work and play, like this look from the Calvin Luo Spring 2018 runway.

Dark and Gilded
Dark hues aren’t solely for cold weather seasons. This black and gold nail art design is perfect for a wedding or evening affair.
The negative space tips make this look so unexpected. Start with a base of a creamy opaque shade and add a scallop-shaped design diagonally across the nail bed. Top with a shiny top coat and you’ve got yourself a one-of-a-kind manicure.
Matte It Out
When nail art seems like too much of a fuss or you want to keep it simple, opt for a unique shade with a matte top coat, like this grayish purple hue.
This time of year it’s tempting to jump headfirst into your tank tops, neon hues and sandals after one day of warm weather. While you may not be able to completely transition to your spring and summer wardrobe, you can celebrate the arrival of spring with festive nails.
