Wedding Staple Jordan Almonds Are Now A Certified Nail Trend (Thanks, Hailey Bieber)

Spring is officially here, and the next big thing in nail art is sure to whet your appetite. Last year's jelly and glazed doughnut manicure trends may be on the way out, but Hailey Bieber's latest design concept is just as sweet. Recently, the Rhode Beauty founder treated fans to a peek at her delicate yellow set featuring soft, rounded tips on Instagram, and these "Jordan almond" nails are sure to be one of the year's most sought-after looks. It's only fitting that Jordan almonds should inspire spring's newest nail art — the sweet treats are often given as a symbolic wedding favor, a romantic nod to the season of new beginnings. Plus, Bieber's lemon meringue manicure finish can be easily swapped for numerous candy-colored pastels that are perfect shades for spring.

Of course, Bieber isn't the only one that's been rocking this super-sweet trend. On the runways at LaQuan Smith's Spring/Summer '23 show, models donned sugared-almond sets by influential New York nail artist Yukie Natori. Almond-shaped nails have been enjoying the limelight for a while now, and their tapered finish is beloved by beauty fans for being flattering and versatile. With Jordan almond nails, you can combine the lengthening look of almond tips with one of the season's most stylish color selections. Thinking of trying it yourself? Ahead, we'll check out some of the best spring nail ideas to incorporate the Jordan almond trend.
