Mani of the Week: Totally Trippy
Created by: @nailsbymh

Why we love it: Take a trip back to the 70s with these tie-dyed designs, mixing mint, turquoise and purple into one psychedelic swirl. Even though Coachella just ended, summer music festivals are still getting into full swing. Run to your nail artist to copy these designs before you hit your next outdoor music fest—they're sure to be a hit.

To get the look: Use Orly Nail Polish, $9.50, in Purple Crush, Grape, Frisky, True Blue and Jealous Much.

Mani of the Week: Flower Power
Created by: @nailsbyharlig

Why we love it: There is no better time than spring to rock floral nail art. With Coachella season upon us, why not try a loud floral design like these red and yellow daisies? The slightly psychedelic print reminds us of music festivals past, but remains funky and fresh for 2019. We're especially digging the cute color choices and detailed black brushstrokes outlining the delicate designs, giving them extra pop and pizazz.

To get the look: Use Essie Nail Polish, $9, in Geranium, Avant Garmet, Licorice, and Bikini So Teeny.

Mani of the Week: Neon Nuances
Created by: @paintboxnails

Why we love it: Sometimes day-glo nails are a bit too OTT for everyday wear. We're super into this pretty blue-gray manicure, kissed with swooshes of neon green. The lovely pastel hue is subtle enough to wear to work, but the electric lime accents make it fun and fabulous for a night out.

To get the look: Use Floss Gloss Nail Lacquer, $9, in Moon Baby and Con Limon.

Mani of the Week: Spring Blossoms

Why we love it: Spring showers means it's time to rock manis with flowers. We're especially drawn to this design that beautifully wraps around the exposed nude nail. It's clean, colorful and a quintessential springtime manicure.

To get the look: Use Essie Nail Polish, $9, in Blanc, Licorice, Exposed, Find Me An Oasis, Pinkies Out, Chubby Cheeks, and Chillato.

Mani of the Week: '90s Nostalgia
Created by: @nail_swag

Why we love it: This vibrant mani takes us back, back to our childhood and the carefree days of fun. Vivid orange, tomato and turquoise polish in a mix of graphic color blocking and polka dots bring back memories of pogs, Trapper Keepers, Lisa Frank and Nickelodeon. The colorfully, kitschy design is fun, fearless and a cute throwback to simpler times.

To get the look: Use Sinful Colors Nail Polish, $1.99, in Jolt, Bitten, and Clementine.

Nail art is one of those photogenic beauty trends that we could look at all day long. Somehow, scrolling through photos of nail art designs whipped up by nail art icons like Deborah Lippmann, Jin Soon and Paintbox is simply addictive — whether we plan to execute the nail design ideas or not.

That's why we're bringing you our #ManicureMonday series — where we show you the simple nail art, endless nail design ideas and other ridiculously pretty nails that we're finding and loving.
