Nailed It: Summer Nail Trends

Beauty, Style

A quick note on nail art.

{Featuring Mr Flamingo}

I’m here today to declare that my love for nail art has not yet wavered. Two summers ago I decided to try out the then NEW trend, and to this day its still one of my craziest beauty obsessions.

This past spring my obsession drifted over to long nails. I wanted them talon-like. And several times I was successful in growing them to an epic length, but that meant I was pretty much useless as a human being. As a Crow, or an Eagle I would have thrived, but as a human, not so much.

For the summer time I have decided to keep my nails at a reasonable length and have made a pact with myself to have fun and summery nail art all summer long. I have reservations about nail art on super long nails. The way I see it, it’s one or the other. Maybe you agree? Or disagree? Let me know, what are your thoughts on nail art actually in general? Do you think it’s still a thriving beauty trend? Feel free to comment below, meanwhile here are my top 4 nail art designs from the last few months. All done by the lovely crew at Tips Nail Bar in Toronto

Meet Mr. Flamingo.This little guy has gotten a great deal of attention lately.

What are your favorite summer nail art designs? I’m currently inspired by anything in a rose gold, or metallic polish (rose gold, so hot right now). And I LOVE  all the “picnic” inspired nail designs I am seeing lately. Think red and white gingham (the table cloth), tiny flowers, maybe a cute ant or two, strawberries, oh oh, and corn on the cob. Trust me its cute, check out my inspiration below.
