While in lockdown, we all tried various forms of self-care, such as meditation, yoga, skincare, cooking, cleaning, sewing, and even hair cutting. Summer is usually when we all want to change up our appearance, and since we can't go out, we've been trying to do so at home. Changing your nail color is the simplest way to feel like you're going through a transformation. It's a quick and easy semi-permanent way to change your look, mood, and vibe!
Today, we've decided to discuss this trend, which is PERFECT for spring and summer and will make you feel bright and happy.
Why is everyone going in on the Skittle nail trend?
The 'Skittles manicure' was a huge trend that we saw on many runways towards the end of 2019 and then trickled down to spring with a brighter color palette. At one of his appearances, Harry Styles also wore this fun manicure.
This look is ideal for someone who can't decide between nail colors. Why pick when you can have them all? This manicure defies nail color conventions by requiring you to apply a bright hue to each finger, emulating rainbow-colored candy! What's the best part about this? The color scheme is entirely up to you. There are no rules at all. You could go all-nude, all-pastel, or even all-bright neon.
Let’s prep our nails!
The summer season calls for love and adventure, meaning you’d be spending most of your time on vacations or floating in the pool. Amid all this, seeing your nail polish chip can probably be a buzzkill. So let’s do a thorough nail prep to make your nail summer skittle manicure last longer!
1. Remove any old nail polish
The first step is to remove any old nail polish using a nail polish remover. However, we don't recommend using acetone as it can dry out your nails and cuticles. Instead, try the DeBelle Nail Lacquer Remover Wipes. These nail polish remover wipes made in India contain Jojoba Oil, Olive Oil, & vitamin E that moisturize your nails & cuticles while also removing your nail polish effectively!
2. Apply a primer
Now that your nails are clean and ready to be painted apply a primer base coat. A base coat helps adhere the nail polish color better, prevents staining, and makes nail polish last longer. If you use the DeBelle Nail Primer, you also get the added benefit of evening out your nail surface with a hint of nude shade. It also acts as a nail strengthener since it's enriched with nourishing, protecting, & hydrating argan oil.
Here are 5 Skittle nail looks that you can try this summer!
1. Paint the rainbow
Why not pick them all when you can’t seem to pick a color? Choose bright colors from the rainbow palette and paint all your nails differently. Honestly, we think this is the ideal summer manicure because it is poppy, instantly lifts your mood, and effortlessly fun to do! Get all the rainbow colors in our nail polish section, and don’t forget to add a mint green shade for the swimming pool vibe.
