Get the best nail ideas for Spring that are popular with women to brighten your manicures and pedicures all the way from St. Patrick’s Day to April showers and May flowers. Welcome the warmer weather and fresh blooms with nature-inspired pastels and flowery, feminine shades.
Since I’m an Olive & June ambassador and only use their nail products exclusively, I am focusing on their products for these nail ideas for Spring. Their collections are so thoughtful, and I *kind of* think their new Spring nail designs (below) are the best collection yet — so reminiscent of a British tea party.
(Pair them with a cuppa and one of these Spring books for a fabulous hour or two of self care!)
Olive & June is known for their SUPER long-lasting nail polish (with their bestselling top coat) to achieve a salon-quality manicure at home for a fraction of the cost. I started using their mani system and pedi system when COVID hit, and I never went back to the salon again.
Now, I dive into my kits every Friday night with an audiobook and a glass of wine at *exactly* 5 pm.
Olive & June also boasts the following accolades:
- vegan products
- cruelty-free products
- non-toxic products
- Press on nails from 94% post-consumer recycled materials and non-damaging glue
- Allure Best of Beauty winner (cuticle serum and nail polish remover pot)
- woman-owned business

Best Nail Ideas for Spring
Olive & June has 6 new shades of Spring nail polish and 5 press-on Spring nail designs this year, as well as 3 additional Spring collections, with 6 nail ideas each, for a grand total of 29 nail ideas for Spring!
Spring Nail Polish Color Ideas
These six new Spring nail colors are themed for “high tea” but they also remind me so much of Easter colors, especially the bright shades!
Watch me pair the Olive & June Spring 2022 Mani System with Bridgerton below:
- The Queen Takes Her Tea with Milk: neutral mauve sheer
- Strawberry Scone: pink sheer
- Jam, Please: glowing soft magenta
- You’re Invited: playful lilac purple
- Golden Afternoon: sunny spring marigold
- Cucumber Sandwich: super fresh cool green
(Bonus: Top these shades with Pink Goldfish!)
I also think Cucumber Sandwich is the best name for a green nail. And Jam, Please is fun shade for both fingers and toes! For this reason, I love it throughout the Spring and Summer months as a great nail color for the beach.
Reminder: While you can buy the nail polish of your choice separately, you can get 20% off with my code OJJULIANNEB20 when you purchase any Olive & June system. The Spring mani system contains all the tools you need to achieve that salon-quality look and feel, PLUS a limited edition floral box, floral pouch, and mint Poppy (for holding the brush).
Spring Press-On Nail Ideas
These five Spring press-on nails range in both size and style, from solid pastels to popular Spring prints like floral and gingham.
- Micro-Floral: (extra short length; squoval tip) fun floral print art design on a dark navy base
- Faded Florals: (short length; round tip) pink mani with intricate, faded floral nail art tips
- Gingham French: (medium length; oval tip) medium neutral French mani with soft lavender gingham French tips
- You’re Invited: (short length; squoval tip) short squoval mani in a playful lilac purple
- Strawberry Scone: (extra short length; round tip) semi-sheer pink
I usually keep my nails very short, so out of these Spring nail designs, I am most interested in the Micro-Floral press-on nail design, which comes in extra-short — the absolutely perfect length to just peek out a bit past the tip of your finger.
A few quick tips about the press-ons:
You can cut the press-on nails, shape them, and even paint on them, and they also come off with NO damage to your nail in about 15-20 minutes of soaking them in soapy water.
I suggest using a “medium” amount of glue to get about 10-14 days of wear out of them.
The press-on nails aren’t too “fake” looking either, and I was even stopped several times at the grocery store the last time I wore the French manicure style!
Reminder: While you can buy the press-on nails of your choice separately for $10 per set, you can get 20% off with my code OJJULIANNEB20 when you purchase any Olive & June system. The press-on system contains all the tools you need to attach and remove your nails with the greatest ease.
