10 Nail Art Designs To Perk Up Your Fingertips This Summer

By  | 

We have well-established that summer has rolled in, and we can’t keep calm about it! While most of us are getting our hairstyles, outfits, and makeup in check, I’m here to help you keep your nails summer-friendly, so that any outfit you choose will look totally on point.

Heads up: Like your clothes, keep your nails either pastel or bright!

I have scouted Instagram for my fave summer manicures that I’m sure you and your girlfriends would love to try at your next slumber party (or just get them done at a salon). Either way, they’re sure to perk up your summer style!

Feather Art

Summer is all about keeping it light and breezy. And what better day to do that than with feathers? Draw in a cute feather on your nails by using the feather brush, or by drawing multiple lines with a liner brush.

French manicure

Keep your nails chic and sophisticated by opting for a fresh Frenchie!

Matte Florals

Go for a soft floral effect in a mint and blush colour scheme. Mattify your nails for a clean finish.

Rose Gold Marble

Marble nail art has a cooling effect. Go for a rose gold nail art with a marble texture.

Citrus Fruit Inspo

Opt for the colour of the season, or fruits of the season, like this lemon nail art.

Gradient Effect

When you can’t seem to decide on just one colour, go for all! A gradient effect looks amazing when you pick the right colours. Either go pastel, or go for all the bright hues.

Pastel Summer Hues

If you can’t go all out with the gradient effect, then paint each of your nails in a different colour, but make sure to stick to a similar colour scheme.

Solo nail art

Paint all your nails a solid colour, and isolate the ring or the index finger in order to create some art on it. Make sure to coordinate the nail art, and the solid colours.

Nail outlines

Outline your nails with a white nail paint by using a thin liner brush. It instantly brightens up any manicure.


Keep your nails clutter free by making a few lines and dots on your nails and sealing the look in with a top coat.
