17 Of The Best Holiday Manicures For Your Next Getaway

We all have that friend who, without fail, never misses a nail appointment. Month after month, she rocks flawless manicures and has the ability to pull off outrageous nail art like no other. We’re talking neon greens, matte lilacs, colour inspired marble designs and every so often a hint of sparkle that of course, never comes close to being tacky. These are the kind of people that bring everyday creativity to the elements of our lives us fashionistas crave the most. If it was acceptable to have a creative director to manage all of our beauty requirements and maintenance appointments, we’d be all over that like a rash. 

While we work on making that daydream a reality, we’ve temporarily shifted our immediate focus to gathering as much summer nail art inspiration as we can before jetting off for a summer of beach trips and poolside chilling.

Ahead of summer trips comes a mad dash of last-minute shopping sprees and panicked beauty appointments but the most exciting of all has to be the pre-holiday trip to the nail salon. With your out-of-office on and your professional persona on mute for the next few weeks comes the freedom to venture away from your classic nudes and french manicures into a world of exotic hues and patterns. Now is the time to embrace senorita status with flirty reds and highlight your sunkissed glow with bright whites. 

In our social media searching, we were drawn like magpies to the designs from Shoreditch Nails whose work ranges from funky graphics to rainbow tipped manicures. Wah Nails London and Dublin based Tropical Popical gave us permission to go wild with the nail art while Mani Pedi, Londonderry, reassures us that we won’t have to move to London to bag some impressive nail art. 

The power of a good manicure is often underestimated in its ability to elevate an outfit and overall confidence. Give these designs a go at your next appointment and you’ll be strutting your stuff poolside all summer long.
