Nail art has come a long way since a toothpick-dotted flower made your middle-school dance outfit feel extra special. Now most salons feature at least some sort of design option — a simple dot of gold glitter at the cuticle or a half dip — if not an entire menu of color-coordinated choices. But in the wake of COVD-19, with mandated salon closures nationwide, 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 the rainbow mani 2.0), 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.
