One of the easiest ways to get excited about spring? Simply paint your nails. Orly’s Day Trippin’ ’70s-inspired nail polish recently launched, and funky vibes are in for spring 2021. 

The new nail collection features six different ‘70s-inspired shades. With colors like Can You Dig It?, Kitsch You Later, Here Comes The Sun, Let The Good Times Roll and Feeling Foxy, each unexpected hue is designed to take you back to the ’70s.

The Orly Day Trippin’ nail polishes are available as individual nail lacquers ($9.50), individual gel nail colors ($15.90) and nail lacquer and gel duos ($21.90). If you’re looking to do full stock up, you can snag all six shades in the Nail Lacquer Set or the Gel Nail Color Set.

How To Wear Orly’s Day Trippin‘ Collection

What’s great about the colors in this set is that there are so many ways to wear them together. Even if you’re not a pro, you can create cool designs using the shades right from home. Need proof? I tried the ’70s-inspired nail polishes three different ways to showcase the set’s versatility.

To prep my nails, I used Olive and June’s 7-free nail primer, but you can use any base coat before applying the nail polish. Since my nails are super short, I tried this French manicure version using five of the six shades. If you want your design to be tighter than this, I recommend using Orly’s Half Moon Guides to achieve a look closer to the design of Nails of La.

I also tried one of the designs created by an Orly nail artist. Doing this design on my less dominant hand was easier because it doesn’t have to be perfect to look cool. Layer one color on one side of the nail, let it dry and then slightly paint over it with a different color.

It’s super easy to just paint one nail with each color, which is how I did my toes. It’s not perfect, but that’s what really makes these colors so groovy.
