Pastel nails may bring to mind cute spring dresses and Easter egg hunts, but they don’t have to be so predictable. The pastel mani got a revamp this year (2023) & today I’m sharing all of the ridiculously cute manis I found online that will send you RUNNING to your nearest nail tech.
A stunning pastel nail color feels quintessential spring, and now that we’ve officially hit the turn of the season, we’re fully on board. Even if you don’t consider yourself a unicorn-loving, cute-nail-color-wearing person – there’s definitely a pastel mani out there for everyone no matter what your vibe is. And paired with trendy nail art like swirls, French tips, or elongated acrylics, pastels feel fresher than ever.
If you’re on a budget, don’t panic. Plenty of the following designs can easily be replicated at home with a simple dotting tool.
