You can really do these easy DIY summer nails with any color base coat. I have found that a white base coat lets the other colors show up the best but if you’d rather go with something else, you certainly can.


  • Base and top coat
  • White nail polish
  • 3 different bright color nail polishes
  • Toothpick or special nail design tool


  • Remove all nail polish from your nails and apply a base coat.
  • Allow it to dry completely.

  • Use a toothpick to swirl the colors together and let dry completely.
  • Apply a top coat and let dry completely.

That’s all there is to it. It’s a simple DIY that makes your nails pop but is easy enough for a beginner to master. If you make any mistakes around your nails, use a bit of nail polish remover on a q-tip to remove it. You can add a bit more color if you want to by adding another small dot.
