1. Dreamy Cloudy

A little glimpse of clouds gives a massive hope in the scorching heat and these dreamy cloud nails by Faime Bass are a perfect inspiration for your British summer manicure. Faime hails from Yorkshire and is a professional manicurist. Faime tells us “This mani was inspired by the British Summer skies that glow different shades of pink and purple and are filled with fluffy clouds. I often take inspiration from nature and my surroundings when creating nail looks and find myself constantly looking out for new things to paint! ” The chrome effect has been in trend since last year and Faime adds “The chrome colour shifts is something I love the most about this look. Depending on the time of day and type of lighting, the chrome shines a different shade. It’s like wearing multiple looks in one and never gets boring!”

For this manicure, she used the brand ‘Nail Stamping Queen’ in the shade ‘Grace’. Liquid chrome. For the clouds, she used a white art gel and finished with Extreme Shine Top Coat from The Gel Bottle Inc. She further adds “the nail industry has a really supportive community of other manicurists and nail artists on Instagram. Sharing my work on social media has allowed me to connect with other people who have the same passions and interests as myself and some have even become lifelong friends.” 

We adored this nail look by her and is perfect for anyone who wants a little touch of British summer on their nails.

2. Minimalist Summer

If the minimum is your vibe then you should definitely try these super minimalist nails by Valentina. With a passion for all things nails, Valentina tells us “Nature is a great source of inspiration, soft swirls and lines found in flowers, shells and clouds – safe to say the inspiration came from everywhere.” She further adds, “I love how it shows that neutral minimal nail art doesn’t always have to be on a nude nail”

She used Akzentz tinted built-in porcelain and French White by Gelcare for this manicure. Encouraged by her friends to show her work to the world, Valentina says “ I am so glad I did this and shared my journey online. I’ve always felt like a creative person but could never figure out how to channel it – nothing seemed right or natural to me until I started doing this.”

If you love simplistic and minimalistic designs but want to keep up with the trends, then you should definitely try this look.

5. Rainbow Tips

We simply cannot unsee the beauty of this Rainbow tip manicure by the naillologist without falling in love with them. The 22 year old, an exceptionally talented nail artist who goes by the name the naillolosgist on Instagram has blessed us with an amazing look which became a mass favourite and went viral. She says “I love how such a simple idea has brought so many people joy. This is one of my most viral looks which I think is due to the rainbow representing so many beautiful things to so many people.”

Telling us further about the look she told us “I love colourful nails and had recently switched to a rounded nail from a square nail shape. I had been thinking about doing rainbow nails in some capacity for a while, and thought that this design would be a fun way to incorporate the rainbow into the classic ‘French tip’.”

To achieve this look she used gel nail polishes and brushes from Beetles Gel Polish.

Telling us about her journey as a manicurist, she tells us “For me, doing my nails is a lot more than just having pretty nails. It’s a therapeutic experience. I decided to start posting my nail designs anonymously in the hopes that it could bring some other people joy as it had brought to me. To my complete surprise, along the way, content creation has turned into my full-time job! I have been blown away with how supportive and loving the community that I have created has been.” 

6. Summer Water Marbles

Another exceptionally pretty nails which we came across were these summer water marbles by a super talented nail tech Linda, all the way from Germany. While telling us about the inspiration behind this look Linda tells us, “I’m constantly experimenting with nail art techniques to find new and easy ways to create beautiful and unique nail art looks. A year ago I was practising water marbling and came across videos on acrylic pouring. This painting technique inspired me to try pouring all the colours into the water at once and I really liked this different version of water marbling. The colourful gradients and abstract patterns are just perfect for summer manicures.”

She further tells us “Compared to the classic water marble, this technique is much easier – if you’re new to nail art or love abstract patterns, this look is definitely worth a try. The outcome is always a surprise, but that’s part of the fun.” 

This look is super easy to achieve with a few basic requirements like a base coat, some polishes in your favourite colours, a quick-drying top coat, q-tips and nail polish remover to clean the cuticle area, and a cup of room-temperature water.

Linda tells us about her social media journey and tells us how it began. “My family encouraged me to share my nail art on social media. At first, I wasn’t sure but glad I started my Instagram account. Social media motivated me to share my ideas and try more complicated designs. And I’m very thankful for all the inspiration I’ve gotten and for all the talented artists I’ve met.”

Definitely save this manicure for your summer manicure list!

7. Chrome Nails

Chrome nails don’t need a reason to be in trend and these absolutely gorgeous chrome nails by Tiffany from Vancouver is an everything you need this summer! Even though the inspiration came from the client, Tiffany created her own version from it which is nothing short of impressive. Tiffany tells us that “when creating this look I loved how I used a mix of a pink and silver chrome powder to create a baby pink look instead of a brighter pink.”  

She further tells us about this look and tells us the product she used. “I used medium Almond Apres Gel x tips, dgel matte top coat – first street clear gel – pink and silver chrome power, Akzentz shine on top coat
