If you’re the type of person who likes to experiment with nail art, then you know how inspiration can be found all around us. So, why not use the happy summer vibes for this as well?
There are plenty of ideas that you can choose from. No matter if you’re a beginner, a person who hates spending more than five minutes on nail polishing, or someone who doesn’t even have that much time, you will find something according to your needs. Below you will find ten ideas, all oh-so-summer!
1. Pineapple Print
One of the things that reminds us instantly of summer is the pineapple! Its colors are totally fitting our mood and we can experiment with this when it comes to our nail art too. It doesn’t have to be something complicated. Paint your nails with nude – colored nail polish and pick one finger where you’re going to paint a pineapple. It may sound hard to do, but it’s actually very easy!
2. Watermelon Nails
The pink and the green go along and make a wonderful look for your nails, so why not use this to your advantage and paint your nails with some watermelon – inspired art? If you want a more gentle look, go for both pastel pink and green, while you will also need white and black nail polish to achieve the look. If you prefer, you can also use matte as pictured.
3. Grapefruit Nails
Yellow is such a happy color, but many people avoid it because of its intensity. However, with the right choice, it can look really lovely! Take this grapefruit – inspired nail art for example – it has yellow, pink and white and it looks amazing. It’s very easy to copy this look, as all you need to do is first to paint your nails yellow and then make few strokes that would form the grapefruit. So adorable!
4. Nautical Nails
Talking about summer nail art and not mentioning at least one example of nautical art would be such a pity. It’s a great way to let everyone know that summer is here and beach fun can start any minute now! When it comes to all things nautical, you can experiment a lot – with stripes, with glitter and with nautical objects, such as the anchor or even with sea life. Pick your favorite, or at least the one that’s easy for you and try it out.
5. Glitter Waves Nails
What screams “beach fun” better than this nail art? The blue is such a calming and pretty color, especially when you add some glitter as well. This nail art is super easy, as all you need to do is to paint your nails in your favorite blue color and then paint glittery blue waves at the tip of your nails. It will be such a nice contrast with the texture.
6. Nude Glitter Nails
Glitter nail art can be easily adapted to any season or even any occasion. It’s also a nice way to draw attention to your nail art, if that’s what you want! When it comes to summer – inspired nails, you can paint your nails in nude color and apply a layer of gold glitter and sequins on top. If you want it to be less glittery, just apply it to one nail.
7. Playful Nude Nails
As much as nude nail art is a classic and perfect for any occasion, it can get boring sometimes because there isn’t any playfulness in it. To make them look more interesting, choose another nail polish as well, preferably a color that will stand out – a bold one. Once you have these two, first apply the nude nail polish and then play with the other one – paint just one nail tip or whole nail, or just make a moon.
8. Dotted Nails
Polka dots are one of the most adorable nail art ideas! Play with the dots – bigger, smaller, one or more colors, whatever you like. Just make sure to choose a summer-y color, such as peach, turquoise, yellow. This idea is especially easy for beginners and those lacking time – just make dots and that’s it!
9. Nail Art with Studs
Other way to decorate your nail art is by adding studs or other nail art decorations. We found this idea very nice because it is nothing complicated and can easily be achieved from home. All you need is two or maybe three nail polishes in colors by your chose. You can create stripes or geometrical figures and when you’re done with nail painting, just add the studs wherever you want then.
10. Bee Nail Art
The last nail art idea we have is something more artistic than the previous ideas we have shown you, but we love it anyway because it’s very adorable and because it’s very easy. Bees are all around during summer, so why not paint your own cute little bee on a finger nail? Make this on one nail and paint its fly path on the other nails.
