Seashell Manicures Make For a Gorgeous Summer Staple

Diply 14 Aug 2017

I spent the past weekend in the sun and on the sand, soaking up each last drop the sea before heading back to the land full of skyscrapers and subways.

Don't get me wrong — I love the city. But, summer is the perfect time to spend out on the shore on a tropical island somewhere, don't you think? If you also are in need of some vitamin sea, check out these neat, nautical seashell nails that might fill the void.

Can't go wrong with a classic white seashell and pearl manicure! I love how reflective the pearl polish is.

Both are elements from the sea that I am obsessed with.

Don't ask me how, but I'm sure Google can tell you a thing or two.

Does it get more millennial than a halochrome, mermaid-inspired mani with the one and only #MillennialPink?

Answer: no, no it doesn't, and I am living for it.

Some seashells can be painted with simple white lines over a different color, like these white and pink ones.

So cute, I love the look of that polish underneath, too! These are simple and sweet.

Others can be done through a more complicated raising technique, resulting in a realistic look like this one.

Gold glitter and rhinestones make this manicure extra as hell and I, for one, am here for it.

Channel the sassy siren from within with these wave and blue seashell nails, complete with pearls and glitter, of course.

If I have to go under the sea to get this design done, then so be it.
