Summer Nail Ideas

When Summer comes, I always want to go for the brightest colours and then I think to myself ‘ok hold up Charles, you cannot rock that’ and I stick with a bog standard colour but hey, doesn’t stop me giving you some Summer nail ideas. Not as complicated as they look, believe me! I’ll leave the main colours I used, but they obviously don’t need to be exact.

Here are my ideas:

Ice Lolly: One of the best things to have in the Summertime.

 – Pineapples: I don’t know about you, but I am obsessed with Pineapples this year. The amount of trinket dishes, ornaments etc I have seen with them on, I want it all.

– Sunshine: To brighten up your day (see what I did there, ha no).

Happy Clouds: Dedicated to the Brits because our Summer is more clouds than Sunshine.

Palm Trees: Something we don’t have here in England but are still a very pretty design for nails.

Bright Aztec Patterns: Can’t go wrong with a basic Aztec using some summery colours.

– Basic Stripe: If you prefer simplicity.

Floral: You never know, this might just match your Summer outfit patterns, there is plenty of florals to choose from. Use Pinterest and you’ll be addicted to floral nail patterns.

White with a glitter of your choice: Pretty self explanatory. Simplicity at it’s finest because White will always stand out.

Blossom Tree: because again, we love the florals for Summer.

Basic Colorblock: Good design for when you don’t have loads of time on your hands.

Ice-Cream: Weird craving I had, so I came up with the nail idea instead.

Glitter base on bright colour: Subtle and then ba-bang, a sprinkle glitter.

Watermelon: Who doesn’t love this during the summer time? So refreshing. So refresh your nails.

Sunglasses: They’re just the coolest thing about Summer really. Love me some Primark sunglasses.

Strawberries: Ok, my idea list is getting a little too fruity, sorry.

Bright dotted mandala: I LOVE mandalas all year round. You’ve just got to switch up the colours depending on the time of year.

Bright sprinkles: It reminds me of ice-cream. You can always find actual sprinkle nail polishes in Poundland for those wondering.

Main Colours I used:

Barry M

Berry Ice-Cream, Dragon Fruit, Black & Pink nail art pens and Key Lime.

Rimmel

Breakfast in Bed, Chin Up Buttercup and Caramel Cupcake.

NYC

Long Island Supermodel, Frozen Metal, Sunny Manhattan and Uptown Fashionista.

With love,
