This sandal season toe nail designs are all about simplicity and style, meaning sophisticated nail art is out and easy, low maintenance styles are in! Now, just because simplicity was the word used to describe the newest toe nail art tendencies it doesn't mean that the result obtained cannot be a spectacular one. Take glitters for example: a glitter mix applied strategically on the nails can take a nail art design from simple to fabulous in seconds and playing with glitter is not only easy, it's super fun too.

As a total nail art addict, whether it's fingers or tippy toes we're talking about, the fact that high maintenance nails are out is a relief as getting your nails done at salons can be quite expensive and let's face it, why commit to a single design for a couple of weeks when you can explore your talent and have pretty polished toes every time you wish.
The new, simplicity oriented toe nail art designs will surely amp-up the style power of your chicest sandals this summer so give the following trendy toe nail art styles a try and don't be afraid to push the boundaries by pitch-in a few ideas to customize your summer pedicure.

All monochome nails

Simple colored nails have managed to climb to the top of the nail preferences, so take advantage of this no-fuss nail art trend and paint your nails in one color. Red, blue, orange, green and pink nail polish colors are the ones to go for this summer, so use the shade that suits your style best. Intense is better, but you can choose to play with pretty pastels too without fearing your digits will look less stylish.
You can stick to one color or you can paint each nail a different shade and your toenails will look ultra-chic.

TIP: To take your nails from simple to fab in an instant and without any effort apply a rhinestone at the base of your toenail (center) while your nail polish is still wet and wait for the color to dry before sealing the color and rhinestone with a clear top coat.

Mixed textures

Another way to get fab looking nails without barely any effort is to opt for mixed textures. Paint two or three of your toenails with a creamy finish color and opt for glitter for the remaining ones. It's best to use glitter dust of a contrasting yet complementing color which you'll apply over a wet polish of a similar shade. Wait for the color to dry before setting the glitter and nail polish with a clear top coat.

Texture Pedicure
Texture Mix Pedicure

TIP: You can use a fan nail art brush to apply the glitter as this will allow you to apply it in a pattern, or to mix glitters and create a gradient glitter nail art look. Also, you can swap glitter for rhinestones if you're looking for an all glam nail effect.

French pedicure

Yes, ladies, French nails are still in as their beauty is hard to top. The fact that there are so many easy ways to a cool DIY French pedicure should only draw smiles as nailing that straight line isn't all that easy, but with guiding strips or a handy rubber band, creating your French tip toe nail art can be super easy. White is the best color to opt for, but you can also choose a colored French tip if you're in the mood for color.
