1. This vibrant pink gel polish from Essie
Sure, pink isn't a surprising color to see as part of a spring-themed manicure, but this Essie hue isn't the typical pastel. "Wilder Than I Seam" is a bright violet-pink with blue undertones. The polish is from the brand's Gel Couture line, meaning you can apply it like any regular nail polish, but it promises to have the shine and chip-resistance of a gel manicure.
2. These adorable strawberry press-ons from Paintlab
Looking for press-on nails that are as fresh as your favorite fruit? Check out this kitschy set that feature adorable strawberry designs. This Paintlab kit includes with 24 gel press-on nails, nail glue, a prep pad, a cuticle stick and a nail file.
3. These vintage-inspired press-ons from Chillhouse
This half-moon nail design has been around since the mid 1900s, and it isn't going anywhere. Whether you’re inspired by vintage fashion or Taylor Swift’s "Bejeweled" music video mani—perhaps heading to her Eras tour this spring?—these red-hot crescent nails from Chillhouse are not to be missed. The press-on nail kit includes 24 nail sizes, a dual-sided buffer, a cuticle stick, glue and a file.
4. This daisy-inspired gel nail wrap set from Dashing Diva
You don't need to be a nail artist to attain a floral design, thanks to these semi-cured gel nail strips from Dashing Diva's Glaze line. The set comprises three white nails and two daisy-adorned ones to nod at the season. Each nail applies like a strip of tape and hardens to a gel finish with the help of the mini curing light that's automatically added to your cart when you purchase a set of Glaze nails.
5. These neutral nails from Glamnetic
If a pop of color isn't really your style, these neutral almond-shaped nails may be more suitable. Perfect for everyday wear, this Glamnetic kit features 24 nails in a neutral pink shade with marbled and gold-toned accents, along with everything you need to apply them, including nail glue, a double-sided nail file, a cuticle stick, and an alcohol pad.
6. This hot pink monochrome nail lacquer from O.P.I.
Every color in the Me, Myself, and O.P.I. Nail Lacquer Collection is fitting for the warm months ahead. If you need to pick just one, turn your attention to the shimmering hot-pink shade "Spring Break the Internet." Though a regular nail polish and not gel, O.P.I. claims it can last up to seven days, especially if you apply polish to the nail's edge to prevent chipping.
7. This ombre nail wrap set from ManiMe
Born out of the desire to create an affordable alternative to the nail salon, ManiMe makes custom-fit, stick-on gel manicures. All you have to do is take a photo of your nails and send it to the company upon the purchase of a design. The brand then uses 3D modeling and a laser cutter to create a set designed just for you. This pink and white gradient design is great for those who want something elevated and chic without committing to bold nail art.
8. This high-shine, baby blue pastel polish from Gucci
Gucci’s newest nail polish shade, "Lucy Baby Blue," is a gorgeous sky-blue color and a pastel lover's dream. The polish claims to smooth out ridges and imperfections on the nail's surface while also imparting a glossy sheen. Apply this all over the nails, create french tips or use it in your nail art designs.
9. This pretty nail enhancer from Dior
Are natural nails more your thing? Check out this nail enhancer from Dior that adds a little oomph with every swipe. This lacquer claims to give your nails a healthy sheen while also amplifying the tones of your natural nails. "The pinks of the nails become pinker and the whites become whiter," Dior states.
10. These velvety pop-on nails from Static Nails
Velvet likely isn't the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of spring nail designs, but after taking one look at the Velvet Effect press-ons from Static Nails, it’s hard not to want the entire collection. You can grab these in classic spring colors, like pink and lavender, or jazz things up with a french manicure design. While trying press-on nails, Reviewed's tester found Static Nails comfortable to wear and easy to apply and remove.
11. This stunning soft green polish from Lights Lacquer
When you see "'52 Chevy," a soft green polish from Lights Lacquer, it’s hard not to think of lush grass and freshly cut flowers. All you need is two coats for a rich color payoff that rivals key lime pie. You'll want to apply this color on repeat all spring.
