The best nail looks for spring 2023

Jin soon

In the middle of winter, you might not realize it, but trust me: spring is here almost here. That means it might be time to pack away your winter mittens and start working on your spring look, whether it’s refreshing your hair color with a moisturizing shine or dot on some fake freckles with one freckle pen (why not?). And of course to get ready for fun, fresh spring nails. Where do you turn for inspo? The runways, of course.

New York Fashion Week may seem like a distant memory, but we’re not done talking about it yet. Whether we analyze best appearance from the runways or seething with jealousy over chic street style looks, there is plenty of inspiration to be gained from the September exhibitions, no matter how long it takes. But it doesn’t stop at fashion. Here, we found the top seven nail trends we spotted on the runways and expect to see everywhere come spring. Whether it’s a creamy nude or Barbiecore pink, we can’t wait to see these styles IRL. Plus, we found the best products to recreate these looks at home. If Gigi Hadid can wear these, so can you.
