Favorite Nail Colors for Summer 2017

Hey guys,

Painting my nails is something that I have loved doing since I was a little girl, and as seasons change, I would change my taste in colors. Here are some colors that I’ve been loving to rock during the hot sunny months!


This baby blue is a color that I love for summer, and for one main reason; it reminds me of the beach. The beach is my happy place and blue is known to be a calm and cooling color so whenever I have blue nails I always feel at bit more tranquil.purple nails

Ya, you can probably sense a pattern here… Light girly colors that are almost like pastels are my summer go to’s. That, or going really bold!lilac nails

This color just makes me think of flowers and innocence immediately. It’s like the innocent girl next door color, but add an accent somewhere and it’ll add a cool twist to the look. It is also a really great base if you wanted to try some cool designs.

white nails

Matt white nails are a classic, and it’s no surprise why! It looks great on all nail lengths and has an clean,fresh, fun look to it, all while being elegant at the same time! I absolutely love white nails when I tan, I love the contrast of white against my darker skin.

yellow nails

Remember how I mentioned being bold in one of the above pictures? Well this is an example of what I was talking about, yellow! Same as the white, yellow contrasts beautifully against bronzed skin and is such a vibrant color that just screams sun!

Is Acetone Bad for Your Nails?

  The answer is YES! I’ve always had really bad nails, they would break and chip all the time which made it really for me to keep a nice manicure. At first I thought my nails were weak because of bad nutrition, I thought maybe I wasn’t consuming enough dairy or vitamins. So I changed up my diet and nothing changed, so I thought maybe the problem was that my nail polishes were ruining my nails, after all nail polish does have a lot of chemicals and a toxic smell! I wasn’t going to give up painting my nails so I switched to organic nail polishes but my nails still remained the same.

It finally hit me that my nail polish remover was the problem when I was removing shellac and it left my fingers white and nails completely dry, rough, and broken. So I did my research and found out that acetone really is horrible for nails, so I switched to oil based removers and ever since then my nails are 100 times stronger!

I know acetone removes nail polish much easier than non-acetone nail polish removers but unfortunately it is such a strong solvent that it not only removes your nail polish but also much of the important natural oils on your nail bed. That dehydrates your nails causing them to break and chip much more. It is not recommended for regular use and especially not recommended for people with already dry nail beds (me)! Although I keep a bottle for occasional use, for those really tough colors (black and dark purple) and to remove shellac. Sadly non-acetone nail polish removers just won’t cut it for those.

Non-acetone use solvents that are much more gentle and usually contain some sort of moisturizer too to help with the dehydration problem. So if you have been having the same problems as I, I strongly suggest that you try using a non-acetone remover for a few weeks. Most brands come with both options and the price is pretty similar, so go on and try it out!

Nail Inspo’s That You Can Do At Home

Here are some nail inspos that I found on google images! These are really simple to recreate yet they look amazing! easy nail art

Dice Nails: This nail design looks really chic and would look great with a monotone look, all you have to do is paint your nails white and then draw 1-6 dots on each nail using a dotter tool or toothpick.


I call this the half half look, its super simple and self-explanatory how to recreate. It adds a bit of twist to normal nail polish and looks super amazing if you find a great color combo like the one in the picture on the right.

nail designs

Personally, this is one of my favorites. I also think that this is one of the simplest nail designs. You just paint a base color (any color) amd then put a glitter nail polish on your lunula (the half moon on your nail bed)simple-nail-design-art .

For this nail design you ca use any color combo and it will look great! Just paint your nails a base color and then use a toothpick or a nail art pen to draw half a tic tac toe grid.


Another nail art design where you use lines! To give it a bit of a unique look, change up the colors of the lines. And make sure to corrdinate the base color with them! 

 Hope you guys enjoyed these nail designs, give them a try! Trust me if I could do them, you can too!
