Hibiscus Nail Art
Chalkboard Nails based this design on hibiscus—those almost-neon blossoms that dot the Hawaiian countryside. For extra dimension, she used two shades of green for the bursts of tropical foliage.
Pansy Nail Art
Wildflower Nail Art
The key to this garden of nails from Love Maegan? Tiny real dried flowers, applied on a nude base and sealed with two topcoats—one glittery and one clear.
Brown Eyed Susan Nail Art
A gold background adds glamour to humble yellow flowers with chocolate brown centers, created by Chalkboard Nails.
Sunflower Nail Art
A sparkly blue base coat grounds this manicure from Nails by Kayla Shevonne—and glittery brown centers smartly mimic the seed heads of real sunflowers.
Tulip Nail Art
Pixie Polish filmed a step-by-step video on how to paint these graphic tulips—we love how the colors pop against the sea blue background!
Orchid Nail Art
We love the smoldering, saturated look of this mani from Lucy’s Stash—the petals are so realistic, you can almost smell them!
Roses Nail Art
Syl and Sam offset the romantic beauty of pink roses with an accent nail in zebra—flora and fauna together on one hand!
Cherry Blossom Nail Art
Love Maegan used a super-thin brush to paint these cherry blossom branches on an opaque white base. They make us want to book a ticket to see the sakura in Washington D.C.—or, better yet, Japan!
Daisy Nail Art
We’re already thinking about which summer dress will best complement these riotous daisies created by Nail Nerd.
