    Summer, summer, summertime. Vacation season is here with sun, sand and rising temperatures. Even better, we’ve got summer nail colors to match! Plus, if you want your manicure staying put during your fun in the sun (who doesn’t?!), we’ve recruited our OPI mani maestro’s to share must-have summer nail tips for gorgeous manis all season long.

    1. Keep Your Cuticles Happy

      When applied nightly, OPI Pro Spa Cuticle Oil prevents hangnails and keeps cuticles moisturized. Just add to your bedside table and apply before you go to sleep.

    2. Protect your nails before you hit the pool

      Before you hit the pool, it’s worth taking extra precautions as chlorine can dry out your nails and cuticles. The night before, apply Nail Envy onto bare nails. If you’re wearing polish, add an extra layer of OPI Top Coat for protection.

    3. Must-Have Summer Nail Tips

      Prolonged soaking causes the nails to expand and become more vulnerable to premature chipping and peeling, so try to take some breaks from the ocean and keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water.

    4. Must-Have Summer Nail Tips

      No, not yellow polish—we love a touch of Sun, Sea and Sand in my Pants. We’re talking yellow nails. Try not to spend too much time in the sun as UV rays can cause fading and yellowing. To prevent your manicure from taking a turn for the worse, prep your nails with not one, but two layers of OPI Base Coat before your favorite nail lacquer shade. Plus, don’t forget to apply sunscreen to your hands and feet!

    5. Must-Have Summer Nail Tips

      Just like our hair, our nails also absorb water. So after a fun day at the beach or in the pool, a manicure is likely to lift and chip. If you want color that lasts for the whole vacation, consider visiting your favorite nail salon and ask for a GelColor manicure. With 3 weeks of wear and shine, you know that once it’s on it isn’t going anywhere.

    6. Must-Have Summer Nail Tips

      Summer is filled with beach trips, vacations and lots of fun activities, so if you don’t have the time to perfect your nails as often as you’d like, spray on Rapid Dry to restore shine in between appointments.

    7. We hope these summer nail tips are helpful! Now that you’re set on nail tips for summer, shop OPI’s vacation colors and get ready for some nail polish lovin’.
