1. Perfect Summer Nails

The more colours the better.  That’s what summer is all about. With these perfect summer colour nails, you will show off your summer side and your fun side.  The black colour is not so harsh with bright colours.  This is a way to tone down the dark colours in your nail box.  Go for bright colours for the thumb and first finger then mix it up with a touch of sparkle and nail art.  This gorgeous sunset nail art design stands out and relates to summer.

2. Cute Watermelon Design

For the past few years, fruit has been a popular choice for nails and fashion. This cute watermelon design will melt your heart.  OK, it’s not a definite watermelon but gives the illusion of a watermelon.  It’s easy and anyone can do this.  Pastel pink, mint green and white shade work so well together.  Finish the look by adding the watermelon look to your accent nail.  Don’t forget to wait for the nail polish to dry until you start with another colour.  The black 3 dots is needed for the watermelon so don’t forget this!

3. Glitter & Flowers Design

Glitter and floral nails are a match made in heaven. Both glitter and floral prints are very feminine and girly so why not combine the two for extra wow effect.  Add a few pale colours to complement the detailed nails.  Mint green and pale pink work well together.

4. Neon Orange Ombre Nails

You have to have a neon orange nail polish in your nail collection. If you have orange ombre nails, I can guarantee your friends will comment on how great they look.  It may become your nail polish style go-to of the season!  For the extra shine on your nail tips, add a glossy super shine topcoat.

5. Colorful Stripes

Stripes are always fun. If you’re feeling the summer vibe, go for this style.  Grab a few bright colours from you nail box and decorate the two middle fingernails.  As you can see from the photo, you don’t have to follow a sequence, just go with what you feel.  Take two colours from your chosen selection and paint the other nails without the stripe effect.
