Summer has arrived! Whether you're at the beach or enjoying a well-deserved staycation, a punch of color on your nails plus a little pamper time is never a bad idea—after all, you'll surely be taking a lot of Insta-worthy photos during this season.

Below, we’ve rounded up nail art ideas that give just the right amount of color and are quite easy to DIY!

1. Pastel Popsicle

We're starting off with a simple and cute pastel rainbow design—perfect for those Y2K vibes.

2. Abstract Lines

Not a fan of pastels? Resurrect the dark, vibrant hues that have been sitting in the back of your collection to create this abstract style with curvy lines.


3. Cuticle Bling

Play around with your digits and add dots to your cuticle area in contrasting colors like black and gold!

4. Polka Dot Dream

Try a minimalist rendition of polka dots by using a clear coat of polish under your nail art!

5. Swirls Galore

If you’re tired of plainly alternating colors, try a negative space style with fun swirly shapes.

6. Summer Tips

Painting your French tips in a non-white hue is a great way to spice them up. While you're at it, add a flower to an accent nail and channel a summery vibe.


7. Latté (Nail) Art

If you only have nude colors in your collection, you can still use them to add minimal yet abstract designs to your digits.

8. Pop of Pink

To add an extra oomph and accentuate the shape of your nails, draw simple geometric lines in a nice, bright color like pink.
