Watch: 7 Spring Nail Art Tutorials You Can Do At Home

Spring is here and if you’re not partial to trying out some new lip art, why not try new colours and designs on your nails. Pastels, florals, geo?prints and bunny art (Easter is just around the corner, after all) ?are all the rage at the moment, and this makes for some seriously impressive design work.

With nail art and design continuing to grow as?a huge trend, it’s an excellent way to have fun with your nails and express your creativity at the same time. You don’t always have to go to the nail salon to achieve a great nail look this spring either (though they aren’t professionals for nothing), as there’s now’many an insightful tutorial?on YouTube that can help you learn the ropes.

On that note, we’ve chosen seven spring nail tutorials we’re obsessing over, that you can try out too. Watch them below and enjoy transforming your nails into miniature works of art.

1. Easy Floral Fun

There are three impressive nail art designs in one handy video here. See, creating?nail flowers isn’t so hard after all.

2. Fashion Week Florals ?

This one was inspired by all the Fashion Week antics and is perfect for beginners.

3. Easter Nail Art

If flowers aren’t your thing, what could be more adorable than Easter Bunny art? Nothing, that’s what. The techniques look complicated but are easy to pick up with care and practice.

4.?Spring Polka Dots

This one is wearable all year round, but the spring colours and use of a matte topcoat make it perfect for this time of year.

5. Minimalist Colourblock Nails ?

This one takes from the negative space and colourblock trends and gives them a spring twist. It’s one of the more complicated tutorials, but if you follow the step-by-step guide, it’s doable.

6. Toothpick Nails

This video shows you how to make five complicated-looking, spring-appropriate manicures with just a toothpick. Quirky, clever and relatively easy to do yourself.

7. Rainbow Design?

This one takes practice and requires a steady hand, but the result looks fabulous.
