Dress your nails for summer in trendy colors, timeless designs and looks that pay homage to the season of fun in the sun. Try different summer nail designs this season to create a great overall look.
Under the Sea
Paint your nails in a glossy sea green shade to create an instant ocean look. Clean nail polish will look great just like this, but you can dress up the look a little. Paint the base with a silver or gold glitter polish to add a little bit of sparkle. Or, sponge a little white polish onto your tips. This will create a foamy effect to really make the ocean theme stand out.
Coral pink is a very summery color, and it’s a hot trend this particular summer. Dress up a coat of coral pink polish by adding black silhouettes to one or two nails. Adding a silhouette to one statement nail per hand isn’t that difficult. A tiny palm tree is perfect for summer. Want to be creative? Add two tiny seagulls to the opposite nail.
Make nail silhouettes by drawing or tracing the shape you like onto a plain sticker or address label. Cut out the design before removing the backing. Paint the middle of your nail black and let it dry first. Now press your stencil firmly and smoothly to the black area. Remove extra black polish carefully, with a Q-tip, before you paint your nails coral pink. Paint right over the sticker. Allow nails to dry almost completely before carefully removing the sticker. Touch up the edges with a Q-tip, and you’re done.
Deep Blue Sea
Paint your nails in a rich, deep blue shade to honor the water. Add some life to the design by creating “pearls.” After the blue has dried completely, dip the end of a toothpick into a pearly white polish and dot it all over your nails. If you’re feeling extra-creative, use the white polish to draw swirls and waves on the blue polish to create an underwater nail design.
Go to the Beach
Give your nails a beachy look with peach nail polish. Once this dries completely, paint the top half of your nails in a rich aqua blue. Now you’ve got the sand and the surf. If you want to add a little sparkle, use a toothpick to paint a narrow line of glittery white or silver polish between the two colors.
