Let’s be honest: Sunny days and al fresco evenings often get us excited about the prettier side of beauty. Suddenly, even those of us that are classic nail fans through and through are thinking about opting for a hint of colour and maximalists are embracing the prettiest standout hues.
While I have been a natural manicure girl for years now, every summer I have at least one YOLO moment when I get the urge to go bold. This month I did an all-over lime green, and I loved it and definitely got a lot of compliments when I go for something out of the box rather than super simple Ballet Slippers vibes .Because of this, I have been saving more pretty nail art designs lately. I think I’m ready to take the next step towards covetable nails by bringing these inspiration pictures to my next gel manicure appointment. But first, I guess I have to narrow down the options. The thing with delicate, pretty nail designs is that they suit any nail length and shape, and often this is what differentiates the vibe. Short and natural? It gives a dainty, soft vibe. Long and square, it’s a fierce meets fun situation!
There are so many pretty designs to pick from—from colours to shapes and patterns to pastels and flashes of vibrant hues, I’m keen to upgrade my next appointment with one the designs below.
