Can’t decide where to spend your summer vacay? Let your favorite nail art decide! 

Capri

Today

Respect the coral with this stunning (and surprisingly simple) mani from Chalkboard Nails. It’s perfect for exploring grottos, dining al fresco and sipping limoncello on the Amalfi Coast. Bellissimo!

Miami 

Today

What manicure suits the sexiest city in the country? We suggest this bright-and-bold design from Chalkboard Nails. The vivid color and glittery topcoat will look amazing with the city’s unspoken dress code—a white dress and a killer tan. 

St. Tropez

Today

Crisp rosés. Striped umbrellas. Aquamarine water. The French Riviera is a romantic fantasy, just like these swirly nails from Polished Elegance.

Bonaire

Today

Bonaire — neighbor to the Caribbean islands of Aruba and Curacao — is known for one thing: its incredible underwater life. Chalkboard Nails’ design depicts rippling water and starfish on the ocean floor — ideal for channeling Jacques Cousteau as you scuba or snorkel.

Maldives

Today

When you’ve splurged to get all the way to this Indian Ocean paradise of crystalline waters and sparkling sand, why not invest in a stunning mani to match, like this gorgeous design from the aptly named Spellbound Nails?

Mykonos

Today

Sammy of The Nailasaurus makes us want to book a trip to the Greek islands with her ocean-inspired nail art. The key to the foamy, lapping wave effect? Using a sponge to dab white polish in between shades of sea and sand.

Bermuda

Today

We’ll admit it: Half the reason we want to visit Bermuda is to check out those pink houses (so cute!). This mani from Polish Art Addict evokes the island’s sweet, nostalgic vibe — with a bit of gold in homage to its ritzy residents.

Big Sur

Today

For those who prefer their beaches rugged and bohemian, California’s Pacific Highway is a must-drive (especially if you’re renting a vintage VW van!). Polish Art Addict’s bohemian feather design — created with water decals — is the ideal road trip partner.

Nantucket

Today

Headed to an Atlantic island to enjoy lobster rolls and salt air? Why not sport this wonderfully nautical design from Polish Art Addict? (Just don’t rely on it to tell you which way is north).

Jamaica

Today

Wrap these gorgeous nails around a rum punch in the land of reggae — The Daily Nail Blog created the graphic look freehand with five of her favorite polishes.

Tulum

Today

This design from Chalkboard Nails captures the free-spirited vibrancy of Mexico’s coastal towns. Now all we need is a prickly pear margarita to match.
