Beauty gets fun in summer. Don’t get us wrong, beauty is the best all year round – but when it comes to summer, playing with colours and styles comes into its own.
One of the best ways into the summer spirit is with nail art. Even the most sacred of beauty rituals can be given a little revamp when it comes to nails. So if you’ve always been a little afraid of changing your style when it comes to your makeup, maybe making a move with your nail colour could be the perfect step for you.
Pretty colours, pastels and shimmery shades are everywhere at the moment, but that doesn’t mean that block colour is the only answer. We’ve taken to some of the cutest styles for inspiration. From a subtle nautical theme to quirky fruity print, symbols and shapes always add a little extra to your style.
But what should you go for? We’ve been finding a few little ways to get the latest trends and style inspiration. Follow our simple steps and you’ll be matched with your perfect summer nail art style in no time at all…
