First Day of Summer Manis

Happy FIRST DAY of SUMMER loves!!! Summer is my favorite time of year. The weather, the beach, the nail polish colors, flamingo and pineapple washi everywhere! What’s there not to love? I decided to do two Summer themed manis today to start the season off right!

First up is a mani using these awesome nail strips by BH Cosmetics.

So these are SUPER old you guys. Probably like 3 years old and I had never used them. Sadly, BH Cosmetics no longer sells anything nail related, so you can’t get these, but they are great for a nail art recreation idea! I LOVE nautical manis so this one was a perfect fit for the first day of Summer!

The nail strips themselves are ok, they were a little stiff (maybe because they are so old lol) which caused a bit of folding and creases. I added Seche Vite top coat to seal everything and smooth the mani out. You can get Seche Vite here.


Next is this geometric floral Summer mani using Incoco nail appliqués. This set is called Summer Night. You can purchase Incoco at Walmart or on Amazon here.

The quality of Incoco nail appliqués is second to none. No bumps, no creases and it’s 100% real nail polish so it looks fantastic on the nail. I love them and highly recommend them if you need a quick fun easy mani. There’s no drying time! You can leave them as is or apply 1 coat of top coat to seal the mani. I used Seche Vite of course which you can get here.

Which one of these was your fave? I’m drawn to the nautical mani of course but I love the quality of the Incoco strips. If you want to check out more Incoco manis I’ve done click here. Happy Summer everyone!
