I’m far from an expert at nail designs. I don’t have a lot of patience to do complicated designs that require multiple steps and a very steady hand. I still like to do fun things to my nails but I tend to stick with easy DIY summer nails like this simple swirl.

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.

  • Make three dots on each nail with the 3 different bright color nail polishes.

  • 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, just 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.

  3. That is such a fun idea! I bite my nails like crazy, but my boyfriend’s daughter is always doing fun things with her nails. I’m going to tell her how to do this.
