Five years ago, not even the most revered beauty editor could have anticipated the meteoric rise of at-home manicures and intricate nail-art tutorials, and yet, it's that element of surprise that keeps the industry on its toes. Especially this spring, after the hellish year that was 2020, you can expect the biggest nail-color trends to have one theme in common: a hit of happy.

"More than ever this spring, we are all looking for a little pick-me-up as our spirits begin to lift," Tamara Di Lullo, manicurist and CND Educator, told POPSUGAR. Jessica Tong, celebrity manicurist and Smith & Cult brand ambassador, agreed: "Since we have to mask a lot still, going a little extra fun on the nails is going to be important for spring and summer. I'm really feeling a fun, tropical vibe - bright colors for catching some much-needed beach time or just 'me' time."

You don't need travel plans to know what that looks like; ahead, the nail industry's top manicurists are breaking down the four nail-polish colors you'll want to add to your cart this spring.
