20 Gorgeous April Nail Colors to Try Now


If April does indeed bring May flowers, you're going to want a mood-boosting manicure to remind you of the vibrant colors and sunny days to come. So now is the perfect time to break out bright yellows, ethereal iridescents, and grounded greens.


"I’m a big fan of anything colorful for April because spring has officially sprung," says celebrity nail artist Natalie Minerva. "This year, I foresee lots of orange-reds, pastel neons, and azul [blue]." Nail artist Sonia Sanchez adds that pastels are also perfect. "Pastel colors provide cheerfulness and calmness from their high brightness and low saturation," says Sanchez.
