• Before you transition to summer's hottest neon polish shades, have a last hoorah with spring pastels. We've rounded up our favorite pastel nail looks from trusty Instagram to get you inspired! Mint has been the color of the season. Follow user nailsbydesign_'s lead by pairing it with a bold pattern to take this color from simple to flirty and fun.

  • White has been huge lately, and paired with florals, it's bolder, but still spring appropriate. Make sure to use a nail pen such as Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen ($7, Target.com) to perfect the flowers.

  • Take something as simple as a sky blue and add a little decoration, such as user g0t_k1m's gold studs. Just pick them up at a local craft store, add a little glue and plop them on.

  • Maybe we're a little biased because those lips look just like our logo, but we love nailinspirations' mani that has different designs on each nail. If you have the time, why not go all out?!

  • We usually go with one statement nail, but how cool is it that user thecutestagram went floral on the ring and middle finger? Sometimes one just isn't enough.

  • Glitter shouldn't just be reserved for the holidays. Play up a pastel like user vicyumi did with a mix of glitter to contrast the soft color.
