There’s something about the warmer-weathered months – and vacation on the horizon – that makes us want our digits dressed to perfection. But instead of spending an arm and a leg on mani’s and pedi’s all throughout the June and July, why not learn how to spruce them up yourself? Here are 14 easy nail designs to try out this summer!
Pinterest has a plethora of amazing ideas to scroll through and gather inspiration from. When we think summertime though – peach is one of our first thoughts. Why not add some peach bums to your digits?
Here’s another fruit that you could dip your nails in for the season. Pineapples are a fun summertime fruit and this YouTube video will guide you through this entire design. We especially love that added bit of sparkle!
This swirled design may be our favorite on the list. Don’t worry, it’s easier than you may think to make happen at home. Check it out at Forbes and follow along with the tutorial along with your favorite summertime tones.
5. Red, White, and Blue Glitter Nails
Be ready for Memorial Day or the 4th of July with a set of these sparklers. At theFashionSpot, you’ll learn how to whip these up in no time. Show your American pride in all ways this summer!
A new trend that we’ve been seeing, and this one found at Brit and Co, we’re swooning for these tile-inspired nails. You can get really creative with the final look and personalize it – as more intricate or simplistic depending on what you like.
7. Blush Marble
These blush marble beauties from Nail Thoughts are quite the bout of inspiration as well. We love the subtlety and romantic charm. And it still speaks to our summer-loving hearts.
8. Color Drops
At Moon Nails, you’ll see these adorable color drop nails that can easily hold any shade combination that speaks to you. Do blues and greens to match the ocean waves or go with neons. Whatever the came, this is an easy – and simple – one to pull off!
9. White with Lashes
White nails are a favorite throughout the summertime. But these nails from Color Camp take it to an entirely new level. Why not add some lashes to the mix?
10. Pink Surprise
Paintbox always has a lot of great bouts of inspiration and we are loving this pink and purple combo. Start with a lavender and then add a hot pink surprise on the side for a modern finish. Just a line is all you need.
11. Black Hole
If you want something edgier for the summertime why not add some lack to the mix? But instead of a full nail, go with this black hole and skin-tone pairing. Check it out at Lee From America.
12. Abstract Blues
TopKnot nails did an abstract design that’s perfect for summer. We love the royal blue but go with any shade of your choosing before starting in on this funky treat. Don’t try to be too perfect, it’s all about the magic here!
13. Iridescent Tape
Miss Pop used a white base as well. But again, took things to a new level with her addition. Add some iridescent tape to the finished design for a summer sparkle!
14. Silver Linings
Some blush polish and a silver, sparkling line for minimal styling is a contemporary beauty as well. Paintbox gave us this idea and we took it and ran with it. You can change out the colors here too to personalize.
