They’ve been around for a LONG time, but swirl nails are having a real moment this year. This short set with glitter and dots is a cool twist on the trend.

I love this set! A long nude nail makes any outfit look more ‘put together’ – even if you’re on the school run in your sweat pants.

The neon yellow on these nails is the perfect combo to brighten up a lilac shade.

We don’t normally associate brown with spring as it’s more of a fall colour, but adding some pastel pink, blue, and orange adds a lighter touch that will look great throughout the season.

Whether you opt for pastel hues, intricate floral patterns, or bold geometric shapes, let your nails be a canvas for creativity and self-expression through nail art and design!
