Festival nail ideas for this summer: top trends and nail art!
When it comes to festival season, your nails play a huge part in your outfit choice. No matter what the UK weather brings (and we do hope it’s sunshine) at least we know one thing for certain: a gel nail manicure will always look as perfect on the last day as it did on the first!
We’ve taken the top summer nail trends to give you some perfect festival nail ideas that are easy to do from home so you can rock a cool new look at your next festival.
Get the party started with neon!
We all know neon never goes out of style and this summer is no different. Neon shades are some of the most on-trend colours this season and make perfect festival nails for that bright and bold look.
For something different we love going for a pastel shade from our neon range; Pacific (Neon19) is a gorgeous and bright sky blue. Of course, our classic best-selling neon blue will always be Blue Bamboo (Neon32) – we don’t think you can get your hands on a brighter shade of blue!
Go for glitter
Festivals are all about the glitter – the more the better. We have a whole range of glitters to use as a full set or as a feature nail, including our brand-new Platinum Range that we have recently launched with 16 new shades of glitter for you to choose from.
Create something different with ombré
If you’re feeling a little creative then we’ve got the perfect festival style for you! Ombré nails are a huge trend this summer and we’re seeing more and more of you experiment with this style. We love pairing Bicycle Yellow (80576) and Anemona (SS1912) for a vibrant festival look.
We created this by applying Bicycle Yellow to half the nail and Anemona to the other half. In the middle where the two colours meet, take a brush and move it from side to side to blend the colours together. Cure for 60 seconds under your Bluesky LED Lamp and then repeat the process with another coat.
Matrix Gel Magic
A quick and easy nail art product that will give your gel manicure a real wow-factor this festival season! Matrix Gel creates a spider web effect when applied to the nail, with our black and white Matrix Gels being our go-tos for plenty of different colours.
Here, we’ve paired Matrix Gels Black Orlov and Peal of Lao Tzu with our pink neon Cherise for a sweet and simple festival vibe.
