Summer Nail Design Ideas

Nails are an important part of your personality and if you let your nails grow a bit longer, you can experiment with many various designs. Always take care to remove the old polish carefully before you start with new patterns. In summers, you can try bright colours which look very chic. Simple trick to keep in mind is to first use a dull colour that serves as the base. Then, add different colours for producing patterns on this base. You may also reverse the idea and add a dark colour as base and then add a dash of dull colour as a dot or square which looks very good. White works best but you are free to use any combination of colours.

Stripes with patterns

Stripes look good and you may experiment with different patterns. Try a simple dull nail polish and add colourful stripes for a jazzy look. Usually, wavy stripes look a whole lot better rather than simple, straight designs.
