We Can't Predict the Future, But We Can Tell You These Nail Colors Are *It*

There are so many things to love when we're transitioning from winter to spring. Warmer weather is one, of course. And that means a wardrobe refresh. It also means there are more opportunities to get outside without freezing your butt off so you can enjoy the fresh air and nature. Plus, I always look at spring (or the change of any season) as a fresh start.

There might be a lot of things you're looking to change this spring, but maybe you just want to change up something in your beauty routine. So why not start with a new nail polish color? It's a low-lift, impermanent way to switch things up.

To kick things off, I asked nail artists and manicurists for their favorite nail polishes of the moment and the colors that are trending hard right now. Take a look at their picks below, plus some editor favorites.
