We spoke to Mazz Hanna, CEO of Nailing Hollywood and nail artist about her love for the soothing and tranquil color. She also shares 20 lavender nail designs for spring and her favorite pale-purple polishes.

Rachel Joseph, a nail artist at Nailing Hollywood, has created a soft, colorful squiggle manicure that we love. Madam Glam Blissfully yours and Kiss on the Cheek ($10 for each) are the perfect products to get the look. (Psst! You’ll need to use a nail-art brush for a clean squiggle.

The cobalt to lavender ombre is created with Royal-Tea Blue and Feeling Fiendish ($12 each) from Holo Taco. You might consider Dazzle Dry Week in Provence ($22), or Manucurist Paris Lisa Lilas ($14) if Feeling Fiendish is out of stock. Hanna says that Week in Provence, a lavender shade with a touch of darker tone, is perfect for those who like a more saturated color. “Lisa Lilas has a hint of mauve and is the perfect color to transition from spring into summer.”

These lavender glitter nails look almost holographic. Joseph created these nails using Dazzle Dry Faith and Wink Wink ($22 per bottle). You don’t have time to apply multiple coats of polishes. Hanna recommends Dazzle Dry’s lovely Lilac ($22). She says that “Lovely Lilac” is a pale lavender with a subtle shimmer that goes well with the polish. She suggests Peacci Wisteria ($13) for a lavender shimmer manicure with a cool tone. She says that Wisteria has a cool toned lavender and a shimmery finish. It’s perfect for those who like to make a bold statement with their nails.

We have another look for ethereal lavendar nails. Laura Malarkey, a nail Hollywood artist, created the lavender chrome manicure. Use the nude polish you like with Orly’s just breath nail polish ($11) for a similar effect. Use a sponge and dab on the colors. Let the ombre dry. Then, apply the chrome powder using a foam eyeshadow brush. Finish with top coat.

FYI Hanna says that Just Breathe, a cream lavender shade, is infused with vitamin C, argan oil and pro-vitamin.
