We love celebrating holidays, so much so that we sometimes match our beauty looks to the occasion. As springtime inches closer, we're specifically looking at Easter nail designs.

That said, adding a pop of pastel to your nails is the perfect way to subtly celebrate, as is adding a fun accent nail and other types of nail designs. From cheerful ombré nails to colorful French manis, here are 12of our favorite Easter nail art looks.

Color-Coordinated Nails

Perfect for the DIY mani amateur, all you need to do to achieve this simple look is five springtime-colored nail polishes.

Tiny Chicks Nail Design

Get in the holiday spirit by adding tiny little chicks and eggs on a few accent nails. They'll look cute and grown-up when combined with muted, pastel nails.

Tiny Polka Dots

Not one for elaborate nail art? Not to worry! Add a few pastel and pink dots over a nude base and call it a day. Funfetti never looked so stylish.

Flower Power Nails

You don't need to draw on rabbits and easter eggs on your nails to celebrate the holiday. Instead, you can draw on simple flowers to welcome the spring and all that comes with it. To achieve this look, dab on a light yellow center and then, with white nail polish, use either a nail art brush or toothpick to draw the petals.

Cheerful Nail Art

If you want nail art that's sure to boost your endorphin levels, consider going all out with fun prints and smiley faces. To keep your nails looking put together, use the same pastel colors for all designs.

Easter Egg Tips

We can't talk about Easter nail designs without including Easter egg-inspired looks. For this nail art, start by using pastel shades on the top half off your nails. Once they're dry, top it off with tiny black dots.

Pastel Ombré Nails

Keep your nail art simple by opting for an ombré look. All you need is two or three nail polish shades, a blending sponge, and a bit of patience to achieve this look. To make it extra glossy, apply a shiny topcoat once the ombré is dry.

Colorful French Manicure

If your nail art looks tend to lean on the classic side but you want to find a way to switch it up, dump the white tips in exchange for several springtime shades.

Slanted French Mani

Give your French manicure a twist by adding slanted, colorful tips instead of the conventional white half-moon look.

Pastel Swirl Nail Designs

We love an elegant, swirly accent nail, and this look takes the gold. It combines abstract shapes and negative space — we're swooning.

Pastel Squiggle Nails

Simple, fun, and festive, all you need to achieve this nail design is a nail art brush and your favorite pastel polish(es).

Bunny Nail Art

Lean into the Easter theme by adding accent nails with rabbits, carrots, and flowers. It's low-key enough to still feel mature, but the playful designs make it feel fun.
