Prom is in full swing, y’all, which means it’s time to get that head-to-toe look whipped into shape ASAP. By now, you’ve (hopefully) swiped up a super fun frock, played with some amazing ’dos, and tested out the perfect makeup look. But we still have one very, very important detail that we can’t overlook: the nails! Nothing pulls an entire outfit together like a set of seriously gorgeous tips, and we rounded up some springy, pastel-themed designs that are super easy to recreate on your own—we promise! Think of it this way: If you can do a simple stripe or polka dot, you’re totally in the clear. Oh, and that Caviar manicure set? We have a tutorial on that, too.

If you still need some extra guidance, though, take a page out of Lauren Conrad’s book and use tape to help get THE most perfect lines or circles. Now all you need are a great set of pastel polishes (this Nails Inc. spring/summer collection is a good place to start), some seriously on-point bling (we like these Sephora by OPI nail embellishment stickers), and you’re good to go! Peep some nail inspiration below to help get you started creating your own set, and don’t be afraid to experiment. Good luck!
