Pastels have been a springtime favorite for nail lovers for some time, but some other trends are on the scene! This season introduces an all or nothing approach to the nail art; from the most natural of nudes to iridescent shimmers. Here are our top picks in nail art trends to pair with Jinja Jewelry hand candy.

1. Reverse French Nails

6 Nail Art Trends to Try for Spring

The Reverse French look is exactly what it sounds like. Instead of painting an accent strip on the tip of your fingernail, you are applying an accent color near your finger’s cuticle. It gives the effect of negative space. This style is commonly referred to as a half-moon manicure. Ladies are accenting their nail beds with all sorts of creative colors, graphics and textures; take this golden glitter approach for example:

2. Galaxy + Metallic Nails

This psychedelic trend uses opaque glitters to that create spacey charm on your nail beds. This look gives a galactic effect that is perfect for all those really down-to-Mars girls. With a cosmetic sponge and your choice of fine holographic glitter polishes, you can add mystery to any ensemble. There are tons of variations and more subdued versions of this look.

3. Matte Nail Obsession

Matte Nail Obsession

It’s difficult to talk about nail trends without mentioning the matte epidemic. This trend was a favorite in the fall and is carrying over into the spring in flowery colors. On the polar opposite side of the metallic frenzy, matte is speaking to women with more classic senses of style. This muted look still makes a statement as it breaks all the rules of our shiny top coat expectations.

4. Untraditional French Nails

Designer Zang Toi responded to the untraditional French trend in his New York Fashion Week 2015 show. This look simply abandons the white tips and neutral bed we know and replaces them with fun colors. Toi’s models sported a deep violet nail with a shy lavender tip. Women everywhere are adding their own twist to this easy style. This look works fabulously with statement finger hardware.

5. Classic Neutral Nails

It doesn’t get more classical than nude. Neutral nail color is an all year around favorite for its versatility. From blush pinks to deep browns, there is no going wrong with classic nude nails in the spring.

6. The Ombre Effect

The Ombre Effect

Many have applied the ombre trend to places it doesn’t belong, but our nails are the perfect place to play with this look. Ombre uses a whimsical gradient effect that blends two or more colors. This style is equally impactful with soft pastels as it is with bold Crayola tones. Get creative and add an interesting graphic on top of your canvas if you dare!
