This is the springiest that nail art gets, and yet despite the fact that the word "spring" is literally spelled out, the homage to the season is still fairly subtle. That's because the letters hug the nails in such a way that it takes a few seconds to notice the word. And until that point, you're just admiring a whimsical abstract pattern.

Shop the look: Essie Worth the Wait ($8.99); Nanacoco 3-piece polish sets ($14.99 each); 20-piece nail art brush set ($8.90)

This dreamy manicure brings to mind a hazy sky on a late spring day that's on the precipice of summer. The soft blur of amethyst and blue is created with a makeup sponge. A strip of glitter along the nail bed adds a glam finishing touch.

White nails are always on trend when the weather starts to warm up, and the feathers here make the mani feel even more seasonally appropriate. Though it's easiest to have a nail tech give you feathers, you can order nail decals (these are water) to DIY this look yourself.

Shop the look: Essie Blanc ($8.99); assorted nail-art sheets (from $5.99)
