10 Nail Art Ideas for Spring 2024 

Whether you’re looking for some trendy inspiration or just curious about the nail trends this season, this is the ultimate list to look out for!  

1. Classic Red Nails 

Nothing says classic elegance like red nails. No matter the length of your nails, red looks bold and fierce with every outfit and skin tone, instantly elevating your look. Try a glossy shade for a timeless look or a matte finish for a modern edge. 

2. Nude Chrome 

Want to add some glossy flair to your look? Nude chrome nails are the way to go! This sleek and minimalist style combines the subtle elegance of nude polish with the dazzling shine of metallic chrome accents, perfect for an edgy style. 

3. French Tip with a Pop of Color 

French tips are a classic, but who says they have to be boring? This season, it’s all about adding a splash of color to the tips. Vibrant neons or soft pastels—this creative spin adds a fun and contemporary touch to your nails! 

4. Balletcore  

Think soft pinks, delicate whites, sheer polishes, and maybe a touch of sparkle—that’s the balletcore vibe. This feminine and fairytale-inspired design captures the essence of both spring and summer, making it the perfect choice for all the hopeless romantics out there!   

5. Coquette Pearls 

The coquette-core aesthetic was made for spring! Featuring delicate pearls on a soft pink or milky base, you’re free to experiment with pastel pinks and whites with details like bows, hearts, plaids, and pearls. It’s a cute way to refresh your spring look. 

6. 3D Watercolor 

Are you an artsy person? If yes, this one’s for you! This one combines pastel shades (or bright neon ones if you want!) with intricate brushstroke details, creating an interesting watercolor effect that’s truly one-of-a-kind. It will add a vintage, funky vibe to your overall style, guaranteeing a unique spring look.  

7. Groovy Pastels 

While spring can be all about bright colors, classic pastels never go out of style! This retro-inspired design features a colorful blend of soft pastel colors in funky brushstrokes, tie-dye and swirly patterns, and geometric shapes. It’s the perfect way to add some character to your nails! 

8. Clean White 

Sometimes, simple is best. Clean, white nails are a breath of fresh air and a great way to show off perfectly manicured tips. It’s a crisp and sophisticated look, perfect for a clean-girl aesthetic. The best part? It goes well with all outfits and styles! 

9. Mismatched Hearts 

Some hearts on your nails can be a cute look this spring! But for a more quirky and playful take on the classic hearts, use heart-shaped stickers and paint them over with black and white nail polish on alternative nails. Once dry, you can just peel them off for cool and chic nail art! 

10. Crayon Box Nails 

Crayon box nails are a vibrant spring look for your nails. To keep it fresh and modern, use primary colors on your nails with a twist of brown or gold on one nail. This unexpected addition of brown/gold (gold for some shimmer) keeps this maximalist look grounded yet stylish. 

Why Should You Get Your Nails Done at a Salon?

Now that you’ve got the inspiration for trendy nail art ideas, a question arises: should you tackle this with a DIY at home or head to the salon? 

While DIY nail art can be fun and rewarding, there’s something truly special about treating yourself to a professional beauty salon experience. Here’s why you should consider letting the pros handle your nail makeover: 

  • Salon-quality results: Let’s face it, achieving those intricate designs or flawless lines you saw online can be tricky at home. Trained nail technicians have the skills and experience to bring your vision to life, ensuring a clean, long-lasting manicure. 
  • Convenient time-saving: While getting your nails done is equally important for a fresh spring look, life can get in the way sometimes! Booking an appointment at the salon saves you much-needed time and energy without compromising on quality.  
  • Inspiration and trends: Salon professionals usually stay up-to-date on the latest nail art trends and techniques. By visiting a salon, you will automatically have access to plenty of salon-approved inspiration and ideas that will help you stay ahead of the curve! 
  • Nail health boost: A good salon experience goes beyond aesthetics. With a wide range of services, trained professionals can assess your nail health and recommend treatments to keep them strong and healthy. 
  • A relaxing self-care day: Finally, visiting a salon is an opportunity to indulge in some much-needed self-care and relaxation. So leave it to the experts and reward yourself with a relaxing day. 

Whether you’re drawn to bold colors or quirky geometrical patterns, don’t think twice and hit up the nearest beauty salon in Trenton, NJ, to get your nails done! Trust us, it will be a rewarding experience.

Now Closed Until April 7th!

Today, like many days this month, has brought additional changes that require immediate action. By order of Governor Murphy, Coterie must cancel all scheduled reservations effective 8 pm tonight, March 19th. Our immediate plan is to be closed until April 7th, or until such time as the state deems safe for salons to reopen. In light of the escalated situation we must, first and foremost, keep the health and wellbeing of our customers, and our Coterie Family, at the heart of our decisions.

What about your reservations?
You have always been there for us and we want to make sure that we are here for you. At the present time, we will be rescheduling all reservations after April 7th. If you already have reservations scheduled after that date, those reservations will remain in place unless we are forced to extend our quarantine. You do not need to confirm them at this time.

Next Steps…
We will continue sending out additional communication to Coterie Guests in the next few weeks through our Blog on our website, email blasts, and Social feeds with all the developing updates.
Any questions? – please direct them to: [email protected]. While we will be working from home, phone support will be limited. Please leave a detailed message with dates and times of preferred services if you are moving a reservation. A coterie representative will get back to you within 24-48 hours.

Need Products?
We will continue to fulfill orders of Beauty Products as available, for curbside pick up! Let us know what you need – shampoos, conditioners, hair color, color root sprays, gel removal nail kits. All order requests should be directed to [email protected].

We all have elderly neighbors who may or may not have family or resources close by. If anyone you know is in need assistance of ANY kind during this time, please let us know. If it’s in our power, we want to help!

Last, but certainly not least…
Whatever may be in store for us all in these next weeks and months, we wish all of you and your families good health.  Let’s all stay calm and move forward with goodwill and compassion for one another.

Many Blessings,

Angela Pantaleone & your Coterie Family
