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.

Easy DIY Summer Nails
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.
- Apply a coat of white nail polish and 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.
