This girl seems to be cheating with this one because she took the picture in front of what looks like an aquarium of some sorts but we will take it. Look at all the fun summer items. We see stripes, pineapples and flamingos. It doesn’t get much better than that for a summer time mani.

Starfish and seahorses? Did we just become best friends? The starfish and seahorses are amazing. I would imagine this girl used a nail stamper to accomplish this which is a neat little trick to get perfection like you are looking at above. The pink and blue ombre style is an added bonus.


Sometimes when we see nails here at, we see true works of art. This is one of those occasions where this is literally art and the easel is the nails. Here we have a beautiful sunset that is happening behind two palm trees that appear to be blowing in the wind. How amazing that she pulled this off? Unreal.

French tips seem to be the way to go when you don’t know which way to go. French tips are the number one way to make your nails pretty every single time. These french tips offer more color on the tip and more bedazzle throughout. Very cute!

Then, your fingers feature this natural nail color to an ombre like pink transition making this a great combination.

It’s a bunch of pretty flowers! So cute! The half flower style on top of this darker pink color makes this a unique display. It actually made us smile when we looked at this one.
