Pretty Nail Art Designs Spring and Summer Tips Trends Tutorials

When it comes to being all things ‘girly’…. I’ve said a million times, I’m so not. Except, the nail art and designs. Then I’m all in. Just yesterday, I was at it again. I got all lazy and just sat at the salon and let them do it. Totally relaxing and what the heck, right? I could use some pampering. But as I was sitting there ooooohhh’ing and aaahhhh’ing over all the glam nail art designs I already started writing this post in my head. Spring is here ya’ll!! And, following right around the corner is summer so naturally I was checking out the new trends. Some are really pretty, some are a bit funky, which is where I usually head. And honestly, some are just a bit over the top. Even for me! But, there’s something for everyone’s tastes for sure! And, since I’m just so cool like that, I’ve put together this sweet round-up of the hottest nail art designs for Spring and Summer so you can just sit there and get all inspired. Or, something.

The Spring Runway Inspired Nail Art Design Tutorial I did over on the other blog 2 weeks ago for Sally Hansen is still getting crazy hits so I’m guessing that one I nailed. (get, it, I nailed it!). Man, I really love those tools and pens they have come out with too! It made detailing those flowers so damn easy! Go check that one out and head back over to grab the rest of these I put together!

Also, these very romantic nail art designs I rounded up over here are perfect for those upcoming Spring and Summer weddings! The video tutorial at the bottom is still one of my favorites!

Nail Art Tips And Tricks

I know what you’re thinking. This is way too hard! Oh not so!! It took me a bit of practice and I still hit up the salon for acrylic tips because I can not get the hang of that. But with the right tools, tips and tricks, you can and will be doing your own nail art at home! Here’s a few of my favorites! Consider it my little cheat sheet… just for you!

  • If you don’t have a steady handy, try Splatter Nails! This is one of THE best tutorials I’ve found for that! ANYONE can do this!
  • For a simple french mani, grab some tape or a rubber band to outline where you want your polish to go! BAM! Perfect every time.
  • Always do a quick cuticle push back before polishing! Makes a world of difference even for single colored nails!
  • I said in my Spring Runway Tutorial post at the very top, I used some of the new Sally Hansen nail color tools. I can’t talk highly enough about them! They make freehand nail art so much easier! Get a few and try them!
  • Don’t want to invest a couple bucks in tools? A toothpick, a bobby pin and even a straight pin with that little ball on the end make awesome decorating tools! Want a slightly longer handle? Get a super fine paint brush from a craft store! You’ll be making pro art designs in no time!
  • And finally, don’t be afraid to make a mistake! A little dab of polish remover on a Q-Tip and you can have a re-do. Better yet, turn that ‘mistake’ into something cool! There’s no rules as to what designs you can or should make! Wing it girl! Have fun and get your mani on!
