After the long cold winter months, we’ll take any excuse to incorporate bright pastel shades into our wardrobe. Any of the colors from this springtime selection will bring a fresh, bright feel to your fingertips. Whether you stick to a minimalist manicure or incorporate a few of these colors into a nail art design, these pastel nail polish colors will have you ready for the Easter season. They’re all available online, so you can order your favorite pastel nail color in time for Easter brunch. Or, buy a few shades to rotate throughout the spring season and into summer.

Urban Jungle

Essie’s Urban Jungle is a hybrid of pale pink, lavender, and the tiniest hint of gray—which means it’s the quintessential combination of pastel and neutral (neutral nails are seriously in right now). This pastel nail color is festive enough for the ultimate Easter brunch yet subtle enough to wear to work the next day.

Press Pause

This icy blue-gray color is gorgeous, but it also has a message we can totally get behind: take a break and treat yo’self every so often. The polish is part of Essie’s Serene Slates collection, which includes nine super-soothing colors that encourage wearers to take a beat and enjoy the gift of self-care at the end of the gloomy winter season.

Meet a Boy Cute as Can Be

Yellow is a go-to color for Easter decor (hello, Easter eggs and fuzzy chicks) but many people would think twice before sporting a bright yellow manicure. The pale yellow of OPI’s Meet a Boy Cute as Can Be is a vibrant pop of color without being overwhelming. We can’t wait to try this one!

Salt Water Happy

This pastel blue nail polish is one of our favorite nail polishes for spring because the name gives us a glimpse at the season ahead. We’ll be dreaming of summer days and sandy beaches as we apply.


This pastel nail polish makes a bold statement, and we are totally here for it. There’s not a color that embodies spring more than green, and Essie’s Empower-mint is our top pick for the season. It reminds us of the dyed Easter eggs we grew up making.

That’s Hula-Rious!

We were attracted to this one by the name alone, but OPI’s That’s Hula-Rious has turned into one of our all-time favorite green nail polishes. We’re loving the way this pastel nail design is accented with a tiny sliver bow.

Go Ginza

Cherry blossoms signal spring, so it’s only natural for this floral-inspired hue to be a top pick for warmer days. Look closely at the medium pink polish, and you’ll even notice the slightest hint of lavender. Cue the heart eyes.

Petal Pusher

Could there be a more perfect name for a springtime nail polish? You can never go wrong with a classic pink like Petal Pusher. Take inspiration from the fresh blooms popping up around you and go with this upbeat shade of light and bright pink. Plus, this is a quick-drying polish so you'll be all dolled up and out the door in no time.
