Summer is almost officially here. Some people might be well into the summer vibes with their makeup and hair. If you’re looking for a way to increase the summer feelings with our manicure, you could try a bright nail polish. If you want to practice your nail art skills then you could try a shell manicure. Or you could do both. If you’re looking for some seashell inspiration, there are lots of ideas to choose from whether you want to try a 3D effect, freehand design, nail stamp or embellishment.
