These Spring Nail Polish Trends Actually Are, Um, "Groundbreaking"
Five years ago, not even the most revered beauty editor could have anticipated the meteoric rise of chipped nail polish or french manicures in 2020, and yet — it's that element of the unexpected that makes a trip to the salon feel more like a Bear Grylls adventure by the day. This Spring, the coolest nail colour trends are no exception.
"Instead of the usual predictable pastel shades, I expect to see a variety of full-coverage neutrals," said Jin Soon Choi, NYC-based manicurist and founder of her eponymous brand. 'Neutral' also applies to colour; in fact, the common denominator across the board, adds Olive & June Salon founder Sarah Tuttle, is sourced straight from nature: "Think garden party hues like a sunny yellow, pinky lavender, and sage green. Instead of last Spring's neons and nudes, this season you'll also see lots of sheers."
You don't need access to the Discovery channel to know what that looks like; ahead, Choi and Tuttle are breaking down the four (Mother Nature-approved, probably) nail polish colours you'll want to add to cart this Spring.
