May flowers have finally arrived, so shouldn't your nails be in bloom, too? We love a springy mani, and what better time to rock one than right now? We have great May nail ideas and colors to get you started.

Lovely Lavender

We love these sweet, pinkish-lavender stiletto nails as a fresh springy color. Wear a lavender- or lilac-scented perfume, and you just might have bees and butterflies buzzing around your nails.

Oopsie Daisy

Is there anything that hints at spring better than a sunny daisy? We think these reverse French nails with glitter pink polish and pretty daisies are super cute. Daisy decals make it easy, and jelly polish looks lovely for May.

Sunshine and Butterflies

One of the best parts about May is stepping outside into the brightest sunny day and spotting butterflies flitting around your yard — or sporting that same look on your nails. You could freehand the butterflies, but we think nail decals do the job beautifully.

Lucky Ladybugs

Want to feel lucky? Add a little luck to your pink and blue matte nails with some super sweet ladybugs. You can hand paint them, but decals make it oh-so-easy.

Flower Power

They're a little bit 70s and a little bit spring, but these nails are so cute. If you're good at freehand painting, you can paint on the flowers. Or, if your painting hand isn't so steady, opt for some cute floral nail stickers instead.

Wouldn't It Bee Nice

Bumble your way through May with nails that'll have you buzzing. Cute bees! Sunflowers! As always, you can freehand or use nail decals. We'll provide links for both.

Color Blocks

Add a little geometry to your spring with these nude nails with color blocks of teal. It's a super clean and cute look that's perfect for spring.

Everything's Better in Blue Jeans

Denim never goes out of style, and we love it as a casual base for all our spring looks. And we think this denim blue is one of the best May nail colors.
