These summer holiday acrylic nail designs have been plastered all over our feed and we just can’t get enough!

You can style the swirl design as a french tip, as an all over print, or even mix and match. If you’re more on the amateur side of nail art (we hear you), best to leave these summer holiday nails up to the professionals. 

Cool Checks

We love a checkered print on our shirt but what about on your nails? Your summer holiday nails inspo should definitely feature the print of the year, the coloured check. Go full on The Queen’s Gambit with a black and white print or give your summer holiday nails a groovy twist with a colour combo à la Lauren Ladnier. If the ‘70s palette isn’t your vibe, ask your nail tech to use neon shades for bright summer holiday nails that feel a little more modern. Checkmate!

Fruity Fresh

You can thank Justin Bieber’s Peaches song for this summer holiday nails trend. There’s so many variations of the fruit print trend to choose from, so if strawberries are more your thing, there’s a design out there for you too! If you’re in the short summer holiday nails gang, this trend is perfect for you since it doesn’t require a long base. Why not have a go at some fruity designs yourself if you’re feeling brave? These summer holiday nails are foolproof - just check out this DIY cherry nail tutorial by @amyle.nails. 

Dainty Daisies

These cheerful daisy print summer holiday nails are *chef’s kiss*. We love this style in a yellow or orange tone to really compliment that gorgeous golden tan (even if it does come from a bottle). If you want to have a go at trying these summer holiday nails but you don’t have all the fancy equipment, use a bobby pin instead to get those precise dots! Add a high shine top coat to these summer holiday nails for a healthy finish that’ll also protect them from everyday wear ‘n’ tear.   

Marble Moment

If your hardest decision is choosing just one shade, then just pick ‘em all! Marble nails will work with any shape of nail, but we’d go for an almond tip. For a luxury stand out finish, give your mesmerising summer holiday nails a matte coating. These summer holiday nails made the list for the endless colour combos you can choose. Bonus points if you match your marble summer holiday nails to our Purple & Orange Marble Print Slinky Halter Neck Ruched Strappy Bodycon Mini Dress.
