Sequins and Sea Breezes: Pinspiration: Nailed It!

Pinspiration: Nailed It!

5/15/2014

With the summer months right around the corner that means flip flops, tank tops and tan skin which inevitably means it's a necessity to have a great manicure/pedicure! No one wants to go out with jacked up chipped nails for everyone to see! I am probably way too obsessed with my nails being painted, honestly I don't remember the last time I went for more than a day without my nails being painted and I sometimes paint my nails several (ok it's been known to happen like 3 or 4 times) a week. I also get a pedicure at least once a month, if it chips before a month I curse the gods, or the shoes, for it chipping WAY too soon. So in honor of the upcoming summer months I decided to share with you some of my Pinspirations for the perfect summer manicure! 

{Ok, pale pink and rose gold? There is no way this isn't perfection!}

{How cute would this be for the 4th of July?!?!}

{So simple, yet so cute!}

{There's nothing like a good accent nail and this one has two!} 

{Neon tips with a neutral base - so cute!}

{Coral and gold is ALWAYS an awesome combo!}

I always see all these amazing nail ideas on Pinterest but I usually just do a regular old manicure or an accent nail. I definitely don't have a steady enough hand do some of the crazy fun designs you see out there. I've tried the watercolor manicure, and the straw circle manicure and the tape striped manicure but none have turned out as good as the Pins. Has any one had luck with any of these manicures? Maybe you can point me in the right direction since I have more Pinterest fails than I do wins! :)

    1. Haha right?!? I can barely get my right hand to not look like a 2 year old painted it... some of these crazy designs are impossible for me! I have no clue what the color was but I'm on the hunt for it. If I find it, I'll let you know!! :)

    1. Ugh my nails seriously chip after like 12 hours... it might be because I wash my hands so much or it could be because I obsessively pick at them if there's even the slightest chip in them LOL!

  19. I love these pinspirations! I am literally awful at painting my own nails so they are usually just unpainted! I really love the picture of the nails with the gold tip!

  31. For a second I thought your nails were in the first pictures and I said out loud, "holy crap" because they look so stinking awesome. You must try that! My hands are so shaky that I think any of these nail art projects would come out with more paint anywhere but my nails ha.

  40. So many gorgeous options! I love the nude-pink with the little heart! I rarely let my nails get long enough for any nail art to work-- but I always dream of it- especially during summertime!

  41. You're a girl after my own heart. I have spent the last year of my engagement planning my manicure for my wedding.
    I can't wait to share what I decided. I have definitely done the coral and gold mani at the bottom. I just used paper tape to tape off the lines. Worked like a charm! xo
