Summer is the perfect time to break out your brightest nail polish and boldest nail designs. We’ve put together a list of ten simple and colorful nail art tutorials that are guaranteed to help your nails stand out this summer. Whether you’re a fan of chevron, palm trees, or pineapples, this list has a manicure for you!
1. Coral and gold chevrons
We recently received the Poolside Beauty Box from Julep Maven, and we couldn’t wait to try out their gorgeous nail polish shades and moisturizing lip balms. We were so inspired by the bright coral and platinum shimmer shades that we decided to create a simple and easy to re-create chevron manicure tutorial.
To copy this look, you’ll only need Julep nail polishes in Jahnavi (platinum shimmer) and Vicki (bright pinky coral), masking tape, and a pair of chevron craft scissors.
