Nash + Pino Nail Lacquer in Spill The Mint Tea
To DIY one of the fun floral looks by nail artist Gina Edwards, start with a couple of coats of a greenish-blue polish like this one to make your base, then use a small brush dipped in green and white nail polish to paint the florets and stems.

Glamnetic Press On Nails in So Classy
I've tried my hand at a DIY French manicure, and let me tell ya—save the effort and get yourself some of this kit instead. Inside, you get everything you need, like nail glue, a double-sided nail file, a cuticle stick, and an alcohol pad, to easily pop 'em on and off.

Press-On Nails for Spring 2022

OPI Nail Lacquer in Art Walk in Suzi's Shoes
This crimson winter nail polish, the same one nail artist Aki used on the runway models, is the perfect shade for transitioning into early spring. Valentine's Day nails, anyone?!

Morgan Taylor Nail Lacquer in Sugar Fix
This pearlescent polish looks just like a golden hour sky and has the right amount of glitter to add a little sparkle without being impossible to remove later.

Zebra Print for Spring 2022

One look at Rodarte stood out among the rest, and it was these zebra-print nails. Animal print is always a fun choice, but that's especially the case for spring 2022.

Winstonia Pro Nail Art Long Striping Brush
Painting zebra stripes is much easier than you'd think as long as you have the right tools.

Since each stripe is supposed to be different from the next, it's easy to cover up a mistake sans nail polish remover, but you'll definitely need a long, fine-tip brush like this one.

Nude Nails for Spring 2022

The models at Brandon Maxwell also wore nude nail polish but went with a more opaque, taupe shade, as seen here.

Tenoverten Nail Color in Canal
Nothing says spring more than switching from hot coffee to cold brew, which is why this color used at Tory Burch makes so much sense for a spring 2022 nail trend.

Described as "milk hazelnut," this shade looks like your morning latte once the ice has melted, tell me I'm wrong.
