While spring has technically sprung, Mother Nature seems to be grappling with some seasonal schizophrenia. But just because winter's clutches are still icy and white doesn't mean you've got to be stuck with cold hands. Ditch the mittens and warm up your fingertips with scenes of palm trees, sunsets and sandy white beaches.

They might not be the equivalent of an actual beach vacation, but these tropical nail art designs are sure to transport you to paradise.

Experience the sunset with this romantic nail design.
