Summer is so close, I can kind of pretend to feel it! But since the seasons are apparently confused this year–err hello Spring, tardiness is rude–I’ve decided to daydream in nail art appropriate for beach weather, sandals and tanned skin. Sally Hansen‘s new Triple Shine Nail Polish inspired me to compose a list of my most coveted celebrity nail art designs for summer.

1. Alexa Chung

Daises! This is a design she referred to as “nail porn.” The white flowers would look darling with a LWD or floral shirt, sunny daisies FTW!

2. Lily Allen

Pinwheel slash tie dye! #Summercamp memories.

3. Lauren Conrad

Ombre! You know that trivial, but stressful moment at the nail salon when you’re torn between a shade of pink and a nearly identical, only slightly darker shade of pink? Well, tada! Problem solved with this ombre theme. Also, the ocean, LC’s rings and the ombre nail color scheme makes me want to re-watch (all) episodes of Laguna Beach.

4. Katy Perry

Red, white and blue–this look could also be called ‘indecision,’ but the pattern screams U.S.A! Seriously, if this doesn’t say 4th of July I don’t know what does! I mean, other than like hot dogs, beers and barbecue’s and stuff!

5. Kylie Jenner

A simple, bright shade to symbolize the demise of your winter blues is perfect for summery activities that connote the arrival of vacation season: blue jean shorts, the ocean, the sky!

6. Zooey Deschanel

50 shades of Lemon. Yellow polish is most appropriate for warm weather because it’s bright and sunny and makes you crave lemonade.

7. Kesha

It’s a sunset! I like Kesha’s twist on a French manicure! Plus, the color scheme is identical to that Endless Summer poster that every freshman hangs in their dorm room.

      I love all of these! The daisies are so adorable. I’m obsessed with the blue nails — Essie makes a great color that’s similar called Butler Please.
