Nothing is more refreshing on a hot summer day than biting into a cold slice of watermelon. Now, get that image out of your head and onto your nails. These fun, fruity nails are achieved by starting with a base of bright pink polish like OPI’s Too Hot Pink (Amazon.com, $6). After the pink coat dries, brush some clear top coat over it. Once both layers are dry, take a black nail pen -- like Sally Hansen’s Color Quick (Ulta, $8) -- and make small dots to look like seeds. Once the dots dry, brush a straight line of green at the tips, like L.A. Colors Art Deco Nail Art in Bright Green (Amazon.com, $5).
These brightly-colored stripes look like the shirts, swimsuits and umbrellas you’ll see on the beach. First, start with a pink bottom coat, like China Glaze in Pink Voltage (Drugstore.com, $7), and let dry. On your index and ring fingers, brush a bright yellow polish at the base of the nail, using a color like Kleancolor’s Funky Yellow (Amazon.com, $2). Then, using Sally Hansen’s Chrome Nail Makeup in White Pearl (discountcosmesticoutlet.com, $20), brush on the final stripe. Cover with a top coat and let dry.
This swimsuit-inspired look takes its attitude from tribal tropical attire. First, coat your nail with a bright red polish like OPI’s Apple Red (DealPepper.com, $9) and let dry. Brush on some white polish on the sides of each nail, covering the red color as pictured. A nice, brilliant white like Suncoat’s Pearl White (LuckyVitamin.com, $7) will look stunning. Then, using the black Sally Hansen nail pen mentioned above, draw on the striking stripes. Let dry and finish with a clear coat.
Go wild this season! Start with a base coat of gold nail polish. Essie polish in Shifting Power (Nordstrom.com, $8) should do the trick. Then, with the Sally Hansen Color Quick nail pen mentioned above, draw on stripes. Set with a nice, healthy coat of top coat.
