While social distancing, spend your free time at home practicing a little self-care by trying out some of this spring’s hottest nail trends.

If you’re bored and looking to experiment with your style, now is a good time to try something that you might not normally rock in public. Don’t worry about your skills — no one will see them on Zoom.

Cow Print

Cow print first made its way into the beauty world last fall, and we don’t plan on it leaving any time soon. All you need is some black and white polish and a little bit of patience. Just like in nature, each print is different, so don’t worry if it’s not perfect.

The New French

Since no one is traveling to Paris (or anywhere, for that matter) any time soon, a spin on the classic French tip is the perfect way to feel like you’re anywhere but stuck at home.

French manicures have come a long way since the early 2000s when celebs like Parish Hilton and Jessica Simpson swore by it. Now, pretty much anything goes when it comes to the reinvented French tip. From monochromatic looks, to rainbow tips, to a stacked french, there are endless possibilities when it comes to this look.


Now that your Friday nights are spent at home, let your imagination run wild by creating a set of mismatched nails. Dust off the assortment of colors you have and see what kinds of designs you can create. Whether you change the color of each nail or completely change the pattern of each nail, your look will still be trendy.

Smiley Faces

Where are the Harry Styles stans at? For those of you who don’t adore Harry Styles, you may have missed his smiley face-inspired nails for his “Fine Line” promo shoot — a look that the nail community has been recreating ever since. If Harry Styles doesn’t put a smile on your face, these nails surely will.


Lately, spring nails trends have been all about abstraction and color. From simple muted tones to 80s-inspired neon patterns, color has been used to create all sorts of abstract designs. Try your hand at abstract nails by playing around with color, shape and size. The best part is that you can use whatever nail polish you have on hand! As James Charles once said, “Unleash your inner artist.”
