It’s the season in which you switch your boots in favor of stylish sandals, sexy platforms and comfy flats and thus your nails have to look flawless. Perfectly polished toenails are a definite must during the warm season as even a clear top coat can do wonders for your look. Just like your digits, your toenails can enhance your style and thankfully there are limitless designs to draw inspiration from depending on what suits your mood.
This summer season anything goes when it comes to your pedicure, so you can choose to go simple or all glam as either way your nails will look spectacular, but if you’re looking to maintain your trendy style, you need to spice-up your toenails with the hottest motifs and the coolest nail lacquer hues.
If you’re all about accentuating your femininity and ‘effervescence’, polka dots and floral motifs are definitely two designs that can do wonders for your look, regardless if it’s fashion, pedicure or manicure you’re talking about. These designs are super easy to achieve, especially pretty polka dots, as all you’ll need is a dotting tool or a toothpick which will deliver the right amount of color on your base nail color layer, every time. Floral motifs might need you to ‘hold’ a bit on an artistic side if you’re all about hand-painted floral pedicure designs, but if you’re not too skilled at freestyle painting, you can also choose the easy way to perfectly polished nails by giving nail art stickers and Konad stamps a try. Go bold or go subtle depending on your style and mood but always keep in mind to seal your nail art design with a clear top coat not only to help prolong the ‘life’ of your pedi but to give it a high shine that catches the eye.
If you’re feeling a bit bold, dare to go wild and experiment with intense neon nail polishes or high contrasting hues that will draw in attention like a magnet. ‘Missoni’ inspired prints look amazing and can definitely help give your pedi a super cool look. This is a perfect style for girls that love bohemian/hippie styles but not only. Make your own blueprint to create the nail art designs or use a precision brush to mash-up the colors to perfection. Another great option, and a much easier style to create is a marbled nail art style and you can easily mix your fav nail polish hues using a nail art needle.
Stripes, ombre nails, glitter and add-ons are also super popular when it comes to nail art and can be a great option for a cool and modern, glam-chic pedicure. Go wild with stripes, add rhinestones, pears and glitter to your toenails and don’t worry about symmetry as this is definitely not the requirement for looking stylish. Experiment with fab seasonal hues such as pretty pastels, vivacious neons as well as nudes and tones of blue as they are all incredibly popular and will help give your nails a super trendy look.
