Slowly but surely, pastels are starting to feel more seasonally appropriate. Even if you're watching the tulips bloom through a window while practicing social distancing, there's something cheerful about warm-weather indicators that make this crazy time feel a bit more zen. Of course, the simplest, most non-committal way to ease into spring tones — especially while you're living in sweats and looking for an activity — is with a DIY manicure.
