I know it’s hard to keep up with the constantly revolving door of nail trends lately, but let’s just take a step back and appreciate the simpler things in life like, oh I don’t know, a few nail colors for spring, maybe? I’ve gathered an impressive roster of hues that seem to be popping up everywhere these days. I won’t lie, though—I had a little help from celebrity manicurist Elle Gerstein. She dished on all the shades she’s using this season and what designs she’s loving lately.
“Designs I’m loving right now are impressions and pops of bold pastel,” she says. “They’re great for brushstroke techniques and abstract art—both are going to be very big. The colors are muted but when combined correctly can make an impactful contrast. They also look great with a metal accent, which is another huge trend right now. We’re seeing foil flakes pop up almost everywhere now too.” And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. If you’re dying to know what colors Gerstein says are right on trend and fit the tone these next few months, keep reading below. I even threw in a few straight from our own nail-inspo board.
