If you’re looking to refresh your fingertips for the approaching warmer months of the year, striped nails just may offer a touch of beauty inspiration. Whether you’re heading off on a cruise or simply soaking up the sun from your backyard, nautical fingertips are a chic manicure trend to embrace now. Here are a few gorgeous striped nail art ideas which also incorporate the season’s must-have vibrant colours.

Punchy Hawaiian pink and orange stripes: If you’re preparing for the ultimate sunny adventure, adorn your fingertips in true style with hot pink and tangerine-hued striped sections. This nail art look features China Glaze’s pink orange Bite Me shade, along with the brand’s deep coral Pool Party shade. Meanwhile, stripes of China Glaze’s light orange None of Your Risky Business and peachy pink Flip Flop Fantasy lend a cool contrasting effect.

Alternating hues of mint green and pale pink: For those who prefer dainty, girly fingernails, try polishing a few fingernails with a mint green shade. Meanwhile, adorn the rest of your tips with a sweet petal pink nail colour for a flawless, pastel-hued juxtaposition. Once your nails have dried, accessorize each fingernail with a single vertical stripe of either green or pink polish. Add tiny nail gems for a finishing touch, and prepare to stun with your ladylike new mani.

Shades of teal, white and shining silver: Try embracing the charm of the seaside with a nautical-themed manicure which will surely leave you ready to explore the seven seas. This particular nail look uses Essie’s blue green Naughty Nautical shade as a base coat on two fingers. Meanwhile, alternating horizontal stripes of the marine hue are also paired with Essence’s snowy Wild White Ways and OPI’s gleaming silver This Gown Needs A Crown. To complete your nail statement, accent a silver-painted fingernail with quirky anchor nail art in teal.
