Palm reading
Nothing says California sunshine and kicking back quite like a pastel-hued, palm leaf-themed motif, so take inspiration from manicurist @_nailsbyjessie_ at Beverly Hills’ chic Olive and June salon, and rock a pale pink and green color palette. Keep things fashionably minimalist by focusing on just a few accent nails.

Materials needed to recreate this look: pale pink nail polish, light green nail polish, dark green nail polish , and nail art tools

Red or dead
For more of a raver aesthetic, look no further than nail artist @hollyfalconenails’s red perspex talons, which are perfect for bringing out your wilder side. The clear tips and bold color make for a deceptively simple combination.

Materials needed to recreate this look: fire red nail polish, clear nail polish
