We've still got a whole month of summer left! Taking inspiration from the '60s mod era of clashing colours and abstract prints, here are 6 fun and easy designs to kick-start your nail art binge.
Of Swirls and Spirals
We’ve got our hearts in a whirl for these pretty pastel swirls. Pastel shades look great on all skin tones, and the freehand spiral designs add a whimsical touch to this look. Here, we used a total of four shades – a soft apricot, periwinkle blue, lilac pink and a faded turquoise. Start by layering the base colour of your choice. Once that’s dry, go in with your second colour in a spiral pattern. The trick is to keep your hand steady and draw the swirl in one clean sweeping motion. Carry on with the rest of your colours until you achieve the desired spiral effect. Since the colours are pretty girly and demure, we pared down the sweetness with a mattifying top coat.
