Written by   Katie Saxton, president of

Spring has finally made its arrival, which means out with old fashions of past seasons and in with an exciting array of fresh new nail trends! If you are stumped on how to jazz up your clients’ nails for the spring season, look no further. Here are the top nail trends for the spring season that are sure to help your clients look fashionable at all of their spring soirees.

Brand New Hue: This season, a major trend will be creating a new hue just for the client. Mix a drop from two different colored polishes to create a color that will perfectly match her favorite spring dress.

Show-Stopping Stripes: Striped nails are all the rage this spring. Manicures featuring criss-cross stripes set against a contrasting background is a favorable trend. Another popular look for spring will be a singular black stripe on each nail set against a white background, choosing a horizontal stripe for some nails and a vertical stripe for others. Make sure to use a toothpick or thin nail polish brush for straight and skinny lines.

Thin Tip French: Manicures featuring an ultra-thin black or colored tip against a solid nude or light grey background will be one of the biggest nail trends this season. This new-age French manicure adds sophistication and elegance to any look, whether that is an everyday outfit or a fashionable cocktail dress. For an extra pop of fashionable flair, make the tip slightly slanted. Do not forget the clear topcoat!

3-D Adornments: Fun, three dimensional nails is the way to be in spring 2014. Paint clients’ nails any color and embellish them with rhinestones, thin metal strips, little bows, or large nail gems.

Texturized Matte: Paint the nails with a coat of any polish and add stylish designs with a matte polish. This unique manicure is sure to turn heads and steal the spotlight at all fashionable spring events.

White With Style: A top trend will be a solid white manicure adorned with small designs such as geometric shapes, colored half-moon bases, and polka dots. The white polish exudes sophistication and the designs add the perfect dose of fun and inspiration.

Creative Kid: This spring, use the nails to show off youthful, creative ingenuity. Glue on little fluff balls, splatter each nail with an explosion of different colored polish, paint the client’s favorite childhood cartoon characters, and let your imagination run free. There are endless opportunities for this unique and inspiring nail trend.

Perfectly Pastel: Manicures featuring Easter egg colors will be very popular this spring. Choose baby blue, light green, lavender, or petite pink for this fashionable and feminine look.

Modern Half-Moon: Last year’s ultra-popular half-moon manicure is back with a new spring makeover. This season, paint a white semicircle half-moon base against a neutral background to create the illusion of a floating moon. This manicure can also feature half-moon bases in a different shade of the back-ground color.

Shocked White: Solid, stark white manicures will be huge this spring as an eye-catching look that goes with virtually any outfit. Make sure to add a clear topcoat to complete the look.
