Nail art has come a long way since a toothpick-dotted flower made your DIY manicure feel extra special. Now most salons feature at least some sort of design option — a simple French manicure or an accent nail — if not an entire menu of color-coordinated choices. But in the wake of COVID-19, we're going back to basics, trying some of spring's most on-trend nail art designs at home.
This season's coolest looks in particular are pretty, wearable, and in some cases, not too hard to DIY. From a new spin on florals with the daisy chain to unexpectedly chic color ways (like grounding earth-toned neutrals), we've rounded up the breakout nail art you're about to see everywhere. Scroll ahead and find the manicure you — and everyone else posting their #quarantinenails on Instagram — will be wearing this spring.
