Nothing feels quite as good as freshly coated nails. You can easily achieve that little bit of glamour by visiting your favourite nail salon to treat yourself to a manicure, but this can just as easily be achieved from the comfort of your own home.

Here at Fragrance Direct, we wanted to show you a quick, cheap and easy way to achieve a popular summer nails look. Here we have our floral summer nails trend which is inspired by all the lovely floral patterns we keep seeing on endless amounts of fabrics! From flowing maxi dresses to high waisted trousers, floral patterns are everywhere. Read our step by step guide on how to achieve this creative summer nail look which will quickly become your favourite NOTD (Nail Of The Day, for those of you who didn't know).

Step 1:

Apply two coats of Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure in the shade 'Yellow Kitty' to achieve a vibrant yellow that works as a strong base for the colours to come.



Step 2:

Take an Essie polish in the shade 'Bond With Whomever' and gently apply leaf-like strokes over your base coat.



Step 3:

Use an polish in the shade 'If You Moust, You Moust' to begin creating the floral pattern. Do this by applying gentle 'splodges' of the polish and try to avoid getting any around the edges of the nail.



Step 4:

For the final touches, gently dab Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure in the shade 'Lavender Cloud' in the middle of the bright pink shade. Do this with a bobby pin or Q-tip to achieve the delicate flower petal look.
