Summer 2022 nail trends and how to recreate them yourself

Ready for the summer? Don't forget your glowing manicure! We have put together the latest summer trends for you. And the good news? You can easily create them at home! Our Selfgel is ideal for creating fun nail art looks. Because the colours always have to cure and don't need to air dry, you have time to get your design just the way you want it. Time to make your nails summer proof!   

4 summer nail ideas 

Whether you like a simple design on your nails or a more complicated one, both are perfect this summer. Whether your nails are long or short, a beautiful french or cheerful swirls are always a good idea. Get your favourite colours ready and let's start! These nail art ideas will give you some nail inspiration. 

Mix & match 

Mix en Match Nail Art Look

 

This summer, don’t go for one, but two colours on your manicure! Multi-coloured nails are very trendy. Combine your favourite summer colours, any mix is possible. We chose Selfgel colour Pink Punch & Orange Soda.  

1. Always wash your hands before you start and prepare your nails with a mini manicure. 

2. Take a PN Cleanser Wipe to carefully clean all nails.

3. Apply a small amount of PN Selfgel Prepper to all nails. Press the liquid into the nail with the application brush. Let dry for a few seconds. There is no need to cure it under the Selfgel LED lamp.

4. Apply 1 layer of PN Selfgel Peelable Base on all nails. Let it dry for 30 seconds. There is no need to cure it under the Selfgel LED lamp.

5. Apply 2 coats of Selfgel colour Pink Punch on the little finger, index finger and thumb. Cure each layer under the Selfgel LED lamp for 30 seconds.

6. Next, apply 2 coats of Selfgel colour Orange Soda on the ring and middle finger. Cure each layer 30 seconds under the LED lamp.

7. Finish your design by applying the PN Selfgel Finish and cure for 30 seconds under the Selfgel LED lamp.

8. Remove the remaining sticky layer from all nails with a PN Cleanser Wipe to reveal the brilliant shine.   

EXPERT TIP! If you experience a heat sensation during curing in the lamp, use the 60-second low heat mode instead of the 30-second mode.

French Manicure 

French Manicure

For years the French Manicure is known as THE classic manicure! This elegant look can be created with the traditional colours light pink and white, but is also fun with bright colours such as Orange Soda. This look is a perfect combination of playful and elegant. 

1. Always wash your hands before you start and prepare your nails with a mini manicure.

2. Take a PN Cleanser Wipe to carefully clean all nails.

3. Apply a small amount of PN Selfgel Prepper to all nails. Press the liquid into the nail with the application brush. Let this dry for a few seconds. There is no need to cure it under the Selfgel LED lamp.

4. Apply 1 layer of PN Selfgel Peelable Base on all nails. Let it dry for 30 seconds. There is no need to cure it under the Selfgel LED lamp.

5. Apply 2 layers of Selfgel Strawberry Cream and cure each layer under the Selfgel LED lamp for 30 seconds.

6. Then protect the colour with the PN Selfgel Finish and cure for 30 seconds under the Selfgel LED lamp.

7. Remove the sticky layer with a PN Cleanser Wipe to apply the nail art properly.

8. Use Selfgel Orange Soda and the stamp to apply the French Manicure. Make sure there is enough product on the stamp. Hold the stamp at a slight angle and place your nail against the stamp just below the colour. Move your finger gently upwards to create a nice edge on your nail. You can always rotate and adjust the stamp to make your design as tight as possible. You can correct the remaining colour with the Polish Corrector Pen (not cured!). To do this, work nail by nail and cure under the LED lamp for 30 seconds.

9. Finish your nail art by applying the PN Selfgel Finish over your design and cure for 30 seconds under the Selfgel LED lamp.

10. Remove the remaining sticky layer from all nails with a PN Cleanser Wipe to reveal the brilliant shine.
