Easiest Summer Nail Art!

By  |  4 Comments

Me, my nail polish stash and my nails: the daily dilemma! You know how some women agonize about their next outfit? I’m right there – except instead of outfit it’s my next manicure! Do you go through that inspiration-less agony too?

I knew I wanted something bright and summery, I cling onto every hot day now, I know I’ll miss them all later! So neon must be this time! I gather round all my neons and totally incapable of choosing or mixing, I just painted each nail a different color.

No special order, no pattern overlay, no dashing rainbow or exquisite ombre, each nail one color. Paint. Let dry. Paint again. Let dry. Cover in glitter topper. Let dry. You’re done!

Was that complicated? I remember doing something similar for Easter, except with pastels – each nail a different pastel color, now it’s time for neons summer nails! It must be the easiest nail art ever and yet I got so many compliments wearing it! And those who weren’t used to bright nails or nail art were just staring at my nails with such dedication that their eyes were popping out! I’m proud of my skittles, they’re bright, happy, easy to do and perfectly summer-appropriate!

Like coloring crayons or m&m sweet bits, my colorful nails make me happy when I look at them and they oddly go well with many of my outfits (which are on the grey&dar side for the most part – I think I compensate with my nails color). It’s a short nail art story today, simple and great for hot days or for playful days! Let me know what you think and if you already tried the skittles before (and how was the nail art received by onlookers)!

I’m Cecilia and I love painting my nails so much that I decided to share my passion and all I’ve learned with you on my website.

    Hi Leanie! Nice you see you back! Thank you for all the sweet words, I really felt like a carnival with those nails, so joyful and easy to do! I know what you mean about neons – don’t forget to check the cheaper brands as well – everyone has neons nowadays! And if everything else fails, we’ll always have Ikea’s neon watercolors for kiddos :-)

    haha – I’m a bit like that myself when it gets to changing manis: what should I wear? That’s why skittle manis are so good!
    These are perfect for Summer – bright and cheerful and crazy gorgeous in the sun!

    Easy is perfect for me! I don’t have much painting skills and I’m low on nails supplies as well and these skittles are fantastic! I’ll try!
