DIY: Spring Nail Art

by Cassy Krueger

With the sunshine and rising temperatures, I’ve got spring and summer trends on my mind. Winter is finally over and I couldn’t be happier. Unfortunately, the end of spring break means the semester is really kicking into full gear, so most of us don’t have time to spare for celebrating.

Instead, I’ve been expressing my excitement for the arrival of spring (finally) through my nail polish. I firmly believe that you can tell a lot about a girl’s state of mind through the state of her nails, and mine are talking spring.

If you have some spare time and a couple bottles of polish, check out the links below for some festive nail ideas. I’ve included a few sites with a variety of ideas and their respective tutorials, and I’ve also highlighted my personal favorites. But first, prep your hands for your fabulous manicure with this miraculous DIY hand scrub from The Beauty Department.
