We have got stunning beach-themed nails, summer nails, and toe nail designs in perfect summer colors for you!
But before we move forward, get to know some nail hacks and tips to save your nail art and nails from all the sand and water.
Save Your Nail Art From Beach Water, Sand & Sun
When we go to beaches and pool parties in summer, our first instinct is to apply SPF and moisturizers.
Heck, some of us won’t even do that because we will be going into the water and all, and it’s going to wash out, so why apply it in the first place, right?
However, the harsh sun rays, water surfing, and sand can damage the cuticle of nails or may even dry them out. Here’s how you can protect your nails from ruining or drying on the beach:
- Always apply a nail strengthener before going to the beach
- Don’t forget to moisturize your cuticles
- Prefer to paint your nails with UV protected nail polish
- A clear thin topcoat is a must in the morning before you head out for the beach
