Summer is all about colour splashes! A splash of colours over white background looks stunning and you can sport these nails with most of your summer outfits. Make sure to protect the sides of your nails with tape. You don't want to get messy with this one!

4. Hairspray magic

Paint your nails with some water colour over a white base coat. Rub off the extra paint and give a light finish to it. Let science do it its part after you spray some hairspray into a bowl of water. It cracks up and.. Yes! You are going to be applying hairspray on your nails for a wacky cracked nails look. This trick is as exciting and easy as it sounds! So if you have any left over hairspray, then why not do up your nails with it!

5. Swirl Twirl

This dry marble nail art looks one-of-a-kind without any wastage of nail paint, unlike the water marble nail art. And, the good part about this one is that it's okay if you mess up here! So if you think perfection can never be your best friend, this trick is for you. All you have to do is just drop in a few colours of your favourite combination and swirl them with a toothpick. You will see a gorgeous tile texture that will make you try this easy peasy nail art again.

6. Half Aztec

Try the half patterned nails with a bright, flashy, gradient neon orange. Nail art liners make things easy for creating those unimaginable straight lines, so try to grab one for yourself!

Full aztec is a little too difficult to fall in this list. So instead, we offer you a half aztec printed nail that's easy to start and finish. Go rock the summer look with brightly painted nails that perfectly compliment the season.
