Pink makes us think of the beautiful cherry blossoms that bloom during springtime. Can’t decide on one shade? Why not have them all?

If you’re not too keen on the bright colours, but still want to celebrate the season, you can opt for some delicate, floral feature nails instead. We love how well the pattern combines with a classic french tip.

On the other hand, maybe you like bright colours and florals! No need to choose one or the other, you can absolutely combine both concepts. This one may be harder to attempt at home, but a professional nail artist could help your nails pop with a design like this.

You don’t even need to include flowers to really celebrate the season. These swirls break up this design, keep it interesting, and bring some movement to what would usually be quite a one-dimensional piece of art.
