Are you looking for inspiration for your next salon manicure? Look no further because we have all of spring's trendiest nail designs here to help transform your normal mani into a next level look.

With the warmer weather and sunnier days seeing pastels, florals, cornflower blues and white French tips trend on TikTok and Instagram, now is the time to ditch your dark winter shades and try out one of these trendy designs for yourself.

From TikTok-vrial lipgloss nails to a Stacey Solomon-approved flower power mani, here's what to ask for at your next salon appointment, or for you to recreate at home for yourself.

Lipgloss nails

Lipgloss nails are universally flattering

If you've been on TikTok or Instagram recently, you've probably spotted lipgloss nails doing the rounds. This seriously pretty pink colour works on all skin tones and is the perfect natural nail boost if you only want a little bit of glossy colour adding. Lipgloss nails are also a big trend in the celeb world at the moment, with JLo kicking off the craze last month and Sabrina Elba debuting her own take on the mani at the Oscars.

If you want to save some money and try a similar shade at home instead of a gel version at a salon, we recommend two coats of OPI Bubble Bath, £14.90 here.

Blue French

A twist on a classic French tip

The French manicure is still very much on-trend, but spring sees a few new variations on the classic white and neutral pink look. We love the use of cornflower blue on the tips of this design, with the added detail of a dot on each nail.

If you want to try this out for yourself at home, Essie Nail Polish Bikini So Teeny Cornflower Blue Colour, £6.99 here, is the perfect spring-ready blue.

Flower power

Go fully floral with this pretty design

Floral nails? For spring? Ground-breaking. Jokes aside, florals are huge this season, with the high-street seeing plenty of floral printed midi and maxi dresses. Stacey Solomon even gave the nail trend a go for herself just the other week when she showed off a classic French tip design on most of her fingernails combined with a minimalist floral design on her index and middle nail.

This look might be tricky to recreate at home, so we say let these floral print stick-on nails from Amazon, £8.99 here, do all of hard the work for you.

Blue swirls

Swirls are very on-trend right now

Swirly nails are a huge trend for spring with white and blue colourways dominating. We love the simplicity of this look, and we'll definitely be saving it for our next holiday abroad because it's making us think of Mediterranean waters.

If you want to try your hand at creating these swirls, try Nails Inc's new range of mani markers. For this specific blue style, shop the Sea Blue Mani Marker Nail Art Pen, £5 here.

Purple haze

Lilac was a big colour trend last summer and it's set to be just as popular this spring. We love the subtle ombré effect of this manicure, which also features reverse French base detailing. Extra points go for the trendy glazed effect the nails have.

Copy this exact purple colour for yourself with Barry M Gelly Nail Paint in Party Ring, £4 here.

Pastel prints

This design combines some of spring's top trends

If you can't decide on just one colour to ask for at your next salon appointment, why not get a mix of pastels? This design combines some of spring's top trends: swirls, florals and geometric prints.
Unless you're an expert at painting your nails, we'd consider asking an expert to help you recreate this look, but you can always press on Lottie London's Stay Press'd False Nails in Wavy Baby, £7 here, if you want a similar look for less money.
