It’s a great time to be obsessed with nails. Thanks to beauty bloggers, there’s a ton of inspiration out there, and you don’t have to be a salon manicurist to get the looks. Blogger trends can change daily, but we’ve rounded up three of our favourites, from fun summer brights to a dreamy marbled manicure.
We’re never going to say no to a bright, summer-inspired mani. All you need is Rimmel’s range of 60 Seconds Super Shine by Rita Ora, £2.99 each, in as many colours as you can handle, and then it’s down to you to get creative.
We love the simple but effective sun shape, created with Bestival Blue and Daisy Days – just use a toothpick to draw the sun’s rays. Similarly, to create the palm tree, paint your nail in Tangerine Tent then use a toothpick dipped in Pump up the Purple to draw your design. Top with a coat of Finishing Touch Top Coat, £4.49, to lock your summer nails down.

Can we just talk about the marble print obsession for a minute? We’re seeing it everywhere, so we’re not surprised bloggers are painting it on nails now, too. This grey and white, delicate design is subtle, chic and fresh. Plus, it’s pretty much the next best thing to owning the marble bathroom of your dreams.
To get started, line up a few nail polishes that will help you mimic the print: Super Gel Nail Polish in Bare Hug and Punk Rock, £5.99 each, and 60 Seconds Super Shine in White Hot Love and Your Majesty!, £2.99 each.

Delicate and beautiful, bracelet nails are a craze that’s really taken off – and gives you a chance to get creative, using any combination of colours or detailing that you’re in the mood for. You just need to get yourself some tape and delicate jewels to place across your nails.
Grab some masking tape and cut it to just over the length you want before you start. Paint two coats of your base colour and let it dry completely. Paint a bit of clear polish where you want the tape and jewels to go, and place on your nail using tweezers, trimming the ends of the tape. Then apply a coat or two of top coat to seal the detailing in place.
