Contrasting shades of pale purple and soft tangerine: While you can certainly create a flawless ombre manicure with monochromatic shades, the juxtaposition of distinct nail colours is also a gorgeous look. For a sensual mani, take your cues from this Deborah Lippmann look which uses shades from the brand’s new Afternoon Delight spring collection. The combination of creamy lilac The Pleasure Principle polish paired with pastel orange Peaches & Cream creates a refreshing and girlish nail statement.

Bold blended blues: This spring, jump into the season’s bright blue shades with ombre nails which combine cobalt colour with snow white polish. This manicure features short square-shaped nails, which are painted with Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Pacific Blue. For a finishing touch, White Orchid topcoat by Glisten and Glow is used to create a striking effect.

Dreamy pastels and swirls of nail art: To officially usher your fingers into the season ahead, try adorning your nails with brilliant turquoise nail polish. Next, create a statement ombre effect by adding shades of light pink and lilac to a select few fingertips. Accessorize your nails with swirls of black floral nail art, to truly showcase the watercolour hues and bring an ethereal touch to your manicure.
