Instead of picking up a pastel polish at the nail salon this spring — no shade, Essie Ballet Slippers — may we implore you to experiment? We looked to the spring 2017 runways for nail art and color inspiration. Here's the brightest blues, funkiest lines, and shimmeriest shades we could find.
1. Millennial Pink
You aren't the only one obsessed with the unapologetically feminine shade. Millennial pink got the high-fashion seal of approval at Naeem Khan, Adam Selman, Lela Rose, and Reem Acra.
2. Asymmetrical French Manicure
The nail art seen at Marissa Webb and Cushnie et Ochs isn't your hometown hairdresser's French Mani. (No offense, Trish!) Instead of having white line the tops of your nails, the snowy shade cuts across a beige base diagonally.
3. Smoky Gray
Rainy days can be the absolute worst, but you have to admit, the gloomy skies are kind of chic. Mirror spring's cloudy vibe with a similar gray shade, as seen at Monse, Tibi, and Brock Collection.
4. Electric Orange
This vibrant shade isn't just for your lips this spring, we're also loving it for tips. Just look at it at Tibi and Blugirl. We don't blame you if you want to do both at the same time.
5. Solid Stripes
Creating striped nail art can be as easy or difficult as you want it to be. You can drag the brush vertically across your nail bed for one solid stripe like the look at Vivetta. Or you can break out the tape for some primary-colored lines, as seen at Opening Cermony and Fashion East.
