3 Minimalist Spring Nail Styles to Try Now

Over the nail art trend? Try these three minimalist spring nail styles to give the "wow" without the extra effort.


3 Minimalist Spring Nail Styles You Haven't Tried


Neutral or nude nails are cut-to-the-chase and versatile.  This spring, try a neutral that doesn't exactly match your skin color, letting your nails pop a little. For example, if you have fair skin, choose a darker neutral like Venique Lace Me Up. If you have darker skin, try a light neutral like Morgan Taylor In the Nude.

Neutrals are easy to play up, too. Try finishing your nails off with a matte top coat or shear layer of sparkle.


3 Minimalist Spring Nail Styles to Try Now


What used to be a somewhat taboo nail color is now a fashion statement. White nails complement any look, so don't be afraid to try them out this spring.

To avoid streaks, apply a thin layer of matte top coat between coats of white polish. Make sure to let each coat dry completely - you might need to wait 30 minutes to an hour before moving onto the next coat. For a high-gloss white nail, finish your look off with a high-shine, fast-drying top coat.

Like white clothing, white nails can look dirty easily, so gently rub a damp sponge or paper towel over your nails to clean them up if they're looking a little grubby.


3 Minimalist Spring Nail Styles You Haven't Tried


Feeling super minimalist? Ditch colored polish altogether.

Start with clean, dry nails. Remove any substances with remover, then wash and dry your hands and nails thoroughly (try a nail brush to get them extra clean). Trim your nails so not a lot of white is showing, then shape them up with a file. Use a buffer to smooth the tops of your nails, then soften your cuticles ( ). Finish with a thin coat of Venique Clear Is Sexy.
