70+ Spring & Easter Nail Art Ideas: Part ONE

Hello Darlings!


I know, officially, it is not spring yet…BUT it feels like spring where I am! And what does this mean? Spring and Easter Nail Art! I have put together a compilation of over 50 inspirational nail art ideas.  My goal was to have this be a starting list, if you will, of all spring and Easter themed nail art ideas. I also put a heavy emphasis on getting nail art that was RECENT, either had a tutorial or video (some sort of INSTRUCTIONS) and was something I would like to try! There are a few that were just too darn awesome (or hard to track down their original site) that are just pictures only.

I am trying to make sure I include all of the links to the websites I found them at as possible, but some are harder than others to find! IF you see one missing and know it’s original site, let me know! Obviously I did not make or come up the majority of these designs, and am not in any way taking credit! Just wanting to share these beautiful creations with the rest of the nail art community out there.

We are now at over 70 designs and growing!

Spring & Easter Nail Art Ideas & Inspirations

What I would LIKE to have happen with this list……Obviously I hope it inspires you to make some awesome nail art designs this season. I would LOVE to see what you come up with, so please post them on Facebook or tag me on Pinterest so I can see!

Before we get to the pictures, let me just say this: I plan on continuing updating this post as I see new videos and tutorials for awesome nail art that fits this criteria. So, if you see any nail art out there on the web that you think would be an awesome addition to this ongoing list, PLEASE post below or on my Facebook wall and I will be sure to add it! The more the merrier (and shinier)! Ok, ok, less talk more pics!

I have broken all of the ideas down into categories for your viewing pleasure, so keep on scrolling!

Right now I currently have the following categories:

  1. Spring Flowers
  2. Spring Showers
  3. Pastel Love
  4. Cute Critters & Animals
  5. Spring Water Marbling
  6. Spring Dot Art
  7. Easter Nail Art
.....So there is something for everyone!!

***2013 Update: PLEASE READ***
