The key to these nails is the order of the colors. Arrange the nail polish bottles in the order of the rainbow colors, just so you can have an idea of what your nails are going to look like.

To recreate the look in the photo below all you need is white and yellow nail polish and a thin brush. Start by applying the base coat first. Then use either the thin brush or a dotting tool if you have one and the yellow nail polish to create the dots. Make sure they are placed in different areas on each nail. Using the white nail polish and the thin brush, draw the petals of the daisies around the yellow dots. Finally, apply top coat and your nails are done!

Go abstract with your Summer nail designs
For this next manicure you might have to use a professional if you are not very good at doing your own nails. If you want to try, however, you just need a bit of striping tape and lots of different nail polish colors. Start by applying the base coat. The apply pastel blue nail polish, leaving the nails where you choose to have your decoration without polish. Then use the striping tape to create the decorations. Here, you can be as creative as you want. You can make it one shape at a time or you can just cover your nail with striping tape and fill in between with different colors. If you go down that route you will have the space between the figures. It is entirely up to you, try different things and see which one you like the most.
Summer is the season when all flowers start to bloom. Needless to say, having floral decorations incorporated into your nail design is a must. Apply your base coat. Choose which nails you want to have the decorations on and paint them in white, paint the rest in blue (of course you can choose and other color). Then, using a thin brush paint the flowers. Once again, if you are not very good at drawing you might want to visit a professional. Finish with top coat and you are all set.
