The spring season is almost here and summer is not far way. That means pastel colors are back! All of the soft, light and beautiful tones are now a must-have in fashion, beauty and nails. With that said, we thought it would be the perfect time to give you some nail inspiration so we have collected 23 pretty pastel nails to inspire you. You will find different shades from pink to green and lots of different ways to wear the colors. There are also designs for all nail abilities whether you are a pro or are trying nail art for the first time. So, take a look and give your nails a fresh and trendy spring makeover!


The next nail idea is cute and creative. Each nail is a different pastel color which include pink, purple, yellow and blue shades. Rhinestones have also been added which really makes a statement. Two of the nails also have trendy gradient art. We love the pretty colors and the nail shape, it is such a stylish idea. You can find gradient nail tutorials online. Recreate this or you can use a different pastel color palette.

If the bolder colors are not for you, then you can try something more subtle like this. Here we have nude nails and each one has a soft pastel ombre design. Midway to tip, the nails are either blue, purple, green or yellow. It is a beautiful look and it is perfect for those who want to try pastel colors without the overall mani being too statement making. Try something similar or you can also use one pastel color for all nails.

If you like bold and pretty nail art, then this idea is perfect for you. The nails all feature nude, light yellow, green and light blue pastel ombre. One nail is also decorated with 3D flowers. It will be a beautiful mani for the spring. Recreate this or you can try a subtler version on shorter nails. Maybe try using painted flowers rather than the 3D ones, as you can buy stickers or hand-paint the flowers yourself.

Earlier in the post we shared a few pastel nail designs with a matte finish. If you loved those ideas, then check this one out too. The nail design was created using five pastel colors – orange, light pink, blue, light green and yellow. This is a cute and pretty look that is actually easy to create but still eye-catching. You can recreate this look for Easter, too.

If you love more unique nail art, then you need to check this out! This features two gradient designs – pink and green and purple and blue one. Purple and blue is a classic color combo and with nails like this, we can see why! Recreate the look or opt for any other pastel color combo. This design will work on any nail shape and length.

Next, we have a pastel rainbow look. This time all of the nails are nude and each tip is decorated with soft rainbow ombre. It is a beautiful look and it is a more low-key way to add a pop of color to your look. You can try the multi colored look or you can try one pastel shade in a different color on each nail. That way you will still have rainbows but just in a different way.
