Gallery: Festival Nails to Rock this Summer

Festival season is the time to rock your loudest prints, boldest colors and most outrageous style. Your nails, the punctuation mark to your look, should be no exception. The designs below were selected with festival season in mind; they’re fun, risky and edgy.

Below are designs for those who consider nail art to be the period to their look or those who want it to be the exclamation mark. Regardless of your style, you’ll find a nail design that will make you fall head over heels in love.

Ready to get your festival on?

Florals, gems and gold accents are music festival staples, so imagine our surprise when we found a design that included all three? Hallelulah!

Tribal and geometric prints are huge for festival season! This design does freehand tribal print justice.

Слайдеры @bornprettynailart beautiful finger hot-250 Я была ими очень приятно удивлена. Дело в том, что руки к меня растут немного не из того места и даже со слайдерами у меня бывают проблемы. Обычно они рвутся или растягиваются. Данные слайдеры же довольно плотные и я с ними с легкостью справилась 😊

Pair this design with a crop top, sunnies and brown leather gladiator sandals for a #festival worthy look.

Who’s off to a festival this summer?! Yay…not me🙄😩🍺🏕 I tell myself ‘next year’ and it never happens😡🙄 Still, that doesn’t mean I can’t rock festival inspired nails, right? I was trying to channel my inner boho chick with the nude shades and the whatever but in the end it was all a bit too meh for me so I added a bit of glass paper. Slightly unusual but hey, I kinda like it! More pictures and the review of the the glass paper from @bornprettystore is now on the blog (link in bio) xx 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 Products I used: 🌟 @barrymcosmetics ‘Skinny Dip’ 🌟 @hjmanicure ‘Coco’ 🌟 @glistenandglow1 ‘hk girl top coat’ 🌟 @bornprettystore glass paper item number #24544 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 #nails #nailart #notd #nailssart #nailitdaily #nailprodigy #nailartwow #nails2inspire #nails4yummies #vipnailbr #nailsohlala #sgnailartpromote #iloveyournails #featurednailart #polishlicious #girlynailsdeluxe #instanails #nailsofinstagram #nailstagram #thenailaddicts #nailbloglove #nailartforthesoul #furiousfiler #festivalnails #festivalready #festivalessentials #nailpolishsocietyabc

Going nude is always a good option, regardless of where you’re going.

While the Evil Eye sees everything, we know that what happens at festivals stays at festivals. (Your secrets are safe with us!)

Whether or not you know the lineup, going to a music festival is one of the most fun experiences you can have! It’s also a great time to show off our nails and we’re never opposed to that.

Which design was your favorite? Have your own #festivalnails to show us? Hashtag #nailitdaily to be featured!
