To help you plan your upcoming spring manicures, we ask some experts to recommend designs with which you can't go wrong, including the aforementioned trends, French manicures, unexpected color combos, textured accents, and more. Whether you want to glue on a set of press-ons and call it a day, test your patience with abstract squiggles on long, natural nails, or visit your nail tech for some jelly acrylics, our list has something for everyone.

Ceirra Carlini-Smith is behind this sophisticated spring manicure, which features a fun twist on classic French tips. "For this half-yellow French, I used my Leafgel Long Liner Brush to create the vertical line where I wanted the design to cover," says the manicurist. "Then I filled in the space using a short liner brush."

It's no secret that jelly nails are a trend right now, and they're perfect for a spring manicure. "I wanted to create a twist on the trend by creating a monochrome version of it by juxtaposing a jelly pink and a creamy pink to create contrast," Nuñez says. To re-create this look yourself, you can either use a jelly shade (she loves Sinful Colors), a.k.a. a transparent polish with a bit of a color tint, or you can DIY the jelly coat by adding a small drop of color to your topcoat. Nuñez advises DIYers to use her bottle brush technique, where you rotate your finger as the brush glides across the tip of your nails to create a gorgeous French.

Nuñez says that "pairing pastels is perfect for spring," and we couldn't agree more. These classy spring nails will upgrade any beauty look you try. "To take the look to another level, I blended two shades and applied them using a makeup sponge," she added. Her made-in-heaven color combo is OPI's Racing for Pinks and The Pass is Always Greener. After applying the color diagonally, she carved out the sided swoosh by using a clean-up brush and nail polish remover. 041b061a72
