💗7 of the Prettiest Pink Nail Designs for the Summer
Aug. 9, 2020
These pretty pink summer nail designs are easy enough for you to DIY at home and we promise they will keep you looking hot during the summer months! Check out these perfectly polished nails designs that you’re going to love.
Summer is here—filled with fruity cocktails, pool parties, beach days, and endless amounts of fun. The warmer months always remind us to slow down, sit back and make some time for yourself. One of our favorite “me time” activities to indulge in? Painting our nails! Have a little fun with them this summer by incorporating any of these 7 pretty pink designs that we think are perfect for this time of year!
The best part about this summertime nail trend? You can easily DIY this style at home if your nail salon is still closed. Start with your base color and let that dry. Next, grab a toothpick or bobby pin and your favorite polka dot colors. Dab a little bit of each nail polish color onto a piece of paper, then dip your toothpick or bobby pin in and gently dab onto your nails. Voilà! Summer nail trend complete!
The nail trend of the summer, half dips have been taking the internet by storm! This look is easy enough to do yourself and goes a step beyond a basic manicure. This minimalist look involves—yep, you guessed it—dipping the top half of your fingertips in nail polish and leaving the bottom bare. DIY tip: to get that perfect, crisp line, dip a nail brush into polish remover and skim it across your nail, creating the perfect dividing line.
French tips are so 2000’s! Take your mani into this decade by putting a fun spin on the classic—wavy tips! Leave the base of your nail clear using a shiny topcoat or paint it any color you desire and then add some waves to your tips for a truly groovy mani.
Another design you can easily do yourself, this trend is all about choosing similar colors all in the same shade range and popping a different color onto each finger. DIY tip: starting from your left pinky and working towards the right, apply your darkest shade and then choose a slightly lighter shade as you work your way to the right. The result? A beautiful spectrum of pretty pinks adorning your fingers.
This summer is all about the neon and why not take that trend to your nails? Take it up a notch by adding an ombre effect with a fluorescent orange or deep magenta. We promise heads will turn when they spot your funky nails from a mile away!
The miniature details on this manicure trend can really take a plain pink mani to the next level! Even though the 4th of July may have come and gone, we don’t see this nail art trend going anywhere this summer. Ask you nail tech to apply foiled star appliques or have them draw them on for a fun, fresh look.
Pair this trend with another pastel color like a light, powder blue or a lovely lavender and you'll find this muted color combo really makes your nails pop! DIY tip: paint your entire nail with your pale pink color and let that dry. Then, use a fine tip nail brush and paint a small, crescent moon shape at the base of your nail, near your cuticle.
We hope you found some inspiration in these pretty pink nail designs! Summer is a great time to have some fun with your nails, so have yourself a little #SelfcareSunday this weekend and dive into one of these easy DIY trends!
My Farewell To Cherie
Follow me on Ig for more skincare since Cherie is leaving 😭 @naturedskinv This has been an amazing journey and I’ve made soo many amazing friends. Thank you for all the love, conversations, and just overall happiness I’ve experienced on this app. I’m definitely sad, a little upset, and a dash of confused, but thank you @cheriefor giving me such an amazing confidence boost and guidance. The way the app shaped my thoughts on skincare has been insane. I’m still willing to forget this and call it a joke if y’all are! 😭 Anyways thank you again and hopefully we can stay in touch 🙏🏾
Skin Barrier Skin Savior 🙏🏾
Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩🤩 Something thing I am very particular about is my moisturizer. My skin barrier tends need the extra TLC and the best thing to give it is moisture. So when I look for a moisturizer I need something that gives me instant hydration and doesn’t clog my pores. So when I received the : BASE BUTTER - Radiate Face Jelly Aloe Vera Gel Face Moisturizer I was so excited! The Brand : ✨Black Owned ✨Women Owned ✨Cruelty Free ✨Non-Comedogenic ✨Vegan ✨Paraben Free 🔑 Ingredients : ✨Aloe Vera Juice ✨Shea Butter ✨Evening Primrose Oil Okay, as you can see your girl woke up DULL! The only thing I did for this video was wash my face and use this to show y’all the transformation! I was using this EVERY night but last night I used my acne treatment routine and your girl FELT THAT (salicylic acid can be so drying to my combo skin). What’s my favorite part? This baby doesn’t have a smell or heavy greasy feel, so it perfect year round! At $21 this is a DEAL ! (The line I used on my cheek covered the entire bottom portion of my face!) Have you tried this brand?
A Journey of Self 🌹
I figured Black History Month was as good as any opportunity to talk about my self finding. Growing up in a small yet old family, I always had questions about my roots and family history. I also struggled with self conscious doubts about my appearance. Why is my nose this big? Why is my hair this curly? Why am I taller than average? These weighed heavy on my mind growing up because honestly, sticking out sucked. So, I finally dove deep into my family’s origin and decided to do an Ancestry DNA analysis. I immersed myself with every corner of the site. I only got the chance to finish my maternal grandmas side of the family tree, but even that has plenty of gaps. Yet, when I received my DNA results I was stoked. Then I realized, I don’t know much about any of these places. So I dug even deeper. I have a little journal of things I’ve learned and want to know, but this was quite the experience. It was heartbreaking and satisfying at the same time. I highly recommend for every race and background to do this DNA Test. The best part of this was scrolling through photos of the people of the respected countries I was DNA matched to. I swear I saw a girl who looked like me, but everyone else thinks I’m tripping lol. In the end, I’m satisfied with my results and findings. Relatively speaking, this way of self discovery has been the most effective.
At Home Exfoliating Facial ✨✨
So I recently received the Mimi Co Exfoliating Wand via IG PR. I couldn’t wait to do a full facial and I decided to do it tonight. Order: I purchased a steamer from Amazon for $23 and I’m obsessed with it (DM me for product info). I started with UpCircle - Cleansing Face Balm With Apricot Powder As my oil cleanse to get my sunscreen from today off and any other oils and dirts. INDIE LEE - Purifying Face Wash This cleanser is perfect for getting dirts and oils from skin as well. It’s not drying and it’s totally worth it! I paired it with a face cleansing scrub brush, I also purchased from Amazon. I love it and I paid around $20 for it as well! It doubles the vibration frequency put out by Foreo. CLARISMA - Namaste Glow Energizing Face Mask This was the mask I chose for the enzyme properties. This breaks down dirts and oils in pores and dead skin cells. I also steamed my face during this time. Follain - Toning Mist: Balance + Prime This was what I sprayed over my face for the prep for my exfoliating wand. I didn’t have a true medium and I am out of Aloe Vera plants so😭 I then exfoliated with my wand starting at my cheeks and working upward and then to my forehead. I went down and to the sides of my nose. Glow slow! innisfree - Jeju Lava Seawater Lotion I used the toner to cleanse my skin and get any dirts left over from me exfoliating. SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask I use this as my hydrating mask. I took the back of my Mimi Co Wand on switched to the Moisturizing Setting. I gently slid upwards my entire face for the last 2 mins only and then wiped the mask off with a damp cloth. earthtoskin - Tea Time Anti Aging Eye Cream This is the most hydrating eye cream I own. I used this with the back of my cleansing brush on the heat setting! Yes it made my eye feel so hydrated and relaxed. fresh - Lotus Anti-Aging Night Moisturizer This was the final step as a good moisturizer seals in everything! To prevent acne I use the SUNDAY RILEY - U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil as my last step. I didn’t use an astringent type toner, so I wanted to still treat my skin💚
