8 Spring Nail Polish Colors You Need to Buy ASAP

Spring is here and it's about time to welcome the change of season with some fresh nail shades!

Say goodbye to dark winter hues and hello to vibrant colors that are reminiscent of clear blue skies, sunshine and the flowers blooming all around you. Spring marks the perfect time to take a risk or two and sport some bold nail colors, but if you prefer something a bit more subdued, there are plenty of sweet pastels to choose from this season as well.

Scroll down for our roundup of eight spring nail polish colors you need to buy ASAP.

Essie 'Pinkies Out': $9

Essie's spring 2019 collection features six seasonally appropriate pastel shades, but we're partial to Pinkies Out—a prim and proper apricot coral hue that, per the product description, is "everyone's cup of tea." This color is perfect for someone looking for a neutral tone that goes with everything, and its glossy finish easily sets it apart from the dozens of other nude nail polishes on the market.

INC.redible Gen Yellow 'Living Your Best Life': $15

Nothing says "Hello, spring" like a bold, yellow hue reminiscent of sunflowers and sunshine. This new color from INC.redible will not only brighten up any look, but you'll also feel great about wearing it. After all, the shade is called "Living Your Best Life." The company prides itself on creating products that are vegan and paraben-free, and this item is no exception. What's more? The polish is sold as part of a set that also includes a matching lip balm made with avocado oil, which will nourish and hydrate your lips.

Deborah Lippmann 'Above the Clouds': $20

Forget about spring showers with this light blue hue from Deborah Lippmann that's a perfect substitute for those trendy grey colors you might have been sporting all winter long. This shade is described as a "powder blue shimmer," and it makes a statement without being too bold. Plus, as part of the gel lab pro collection (which means it's an alternative to gels that requires no lamps or tools) you can rest assured that this polish will stay on for days at a time without any of the hassle and damage to your nails that a typical gel manicure may cause.

Nails Inc. '12 p.m. Somewhere': $11

This vibrant nail polish is part of the British brand's "Bright Ambition" collection for spring and summer 2019, and with one look at it, it's easy to see why. Though this show-stopping purple shade isn't for everyone, this long-wear polish will certainly turn heads this season.

OPI 'How Does Your Zen Garden Grow?': $13

OPI's new 12-shade Tokyo collection is full of spring-friendly colors that we absolutely love, but there's just something about "How Does Your Zen Garden Grow?" that puts this pastel green shade in a league of its own. It's simultaneously calming yet different, but it won't distract from whatever else you've got going on. What's more? As part of the label's infinite shine collection, this long-lasting nail polish provides up to 11 days of wear.

Chantecaille Celestial Nail Sheer 'Nova': $28

Sure, there's no shortage of pink shades on the market at any point in the year, especially around spring time, but what we love about this delicate pearl, sparkly nail polish from Chantecaille is that it can be worn either on its own or as a topcoat in conjunction with just about any other color. This hue in particular, which was inspired by the many colors of the Aurora Borealis, features a unique, shimmering dimension that creates a long-wearing celestial manicure.

UO Nail Polish 'Siren': $5

No matter the time of year, you can never go wrong with a bold, red nail. This hue from Urban Outfitters called "Siren" has over a dozen five-star reviews, and users love it because it goes on smoothly without chipping. Furthermore, if you're feeling a bit indecisive about what color you want to rock on your nails this spring, you're in luck, because Urban Outfitters is currently having a three for $10 deal that includes any of the 17 shades in their current nail polish collection.

Zoya 'Theo': $10

Zoya's spring 2019 "Innocence" collection is all about the transition from winter to summer, and "Theo," a stormy grey shade, is billed as the "thunderstorm" of the bunch. While you might not consider grey to be a very seasonally appropriate hue, this nail polish sets itself apart because it features a flash of larger and irregular silver flakes that give it a truly unique texture. There is also dark blue glitter throughout, which makes this shade an ideal fit for both emo days or a fun night out with your friends.
