Before you go on that tropical vacation, make sure you gear up with some beach nail art. It’s totally understandable if you’re still obsessed with your spring nails, but summer is here! We’ve already tried altering time and things got a bit tricky.
And, that means it’s time to dress your nails up with some pretty beach nail art and sip on a piña colada. Because from the hypnotizing waves to the sand in your bathing suit, what’s not to love about the beach?
These nail designs include everything from From palm trees and mermaids to nautical-themed nail art, so there are plenty of beachy looks to choose from before you pack your bags. Which is ideally after the paint dries.
