Hit the Beach with This Summery Floral Nail Art
What better way to celebrate the arrival of warm weather than with this floral nail art? Perfect for hitting the waves, this summer-bright look is easy to achieve and to customize. Plus, it makes a playful, colorful accessory to any fair-weather outfit.
What do you get when you combine gradients, flowers, and polka dots? One super-fun summery manicure! You can never really go wrong with a good gradient, but I love it with this all-white floral nail art. Plus, it's so simple to create; all you need are two paint colors, a sponge, a cotton swab, a brush or nail art pen, and a topcoat. Of course, you can choose any colors you'd like, but be sure to use shades dark enough to contrast with the white flowers.
1. Paint your nails light blue (or the color of your choice); then, using a sponge, add a darker hue to the tips of your nails.
2. Clean up around the edges of your nails using a cotton swab and a brush.
3. Add flowers using a thin brush or nail art pen. Start with individual petals, carefully working your way around the flower. Don't forget a contrasting dot in the center!
4. I chose to mix up this nail art with some polka dots, but you can add floral nail art to all your nails. As always, finish off your look with a topcoat to seal in your design.
