Think you need a big budget and a ton of time to get a really cool manicure? Think again. Creating some of summer’s coolest nail looks could not be easier… and many of them are DIY friendly. I took some clues from this month’s Glamour magazine story on nail trends and added my own favorites. Here are some super-simple tips from Jensy’s apartment to yours:
Singer Michelle Williams’ recent bright coral nail look.
Strawberry is another great choice, looking shiny, girly, and fierce all at once. I went with Essie’s “E-nuf is E-nuf” for this fun look. $8, drugstore.com
Create a glittery highlight nail
That was easy! Swipe on two layers of Milani glitter polish (I chose Pink Flair) for a glitzy look.
Pastel is always pretty… try an ice blue or mint green, both of which look exceptional with a little tan.
Dark edges are majorly sexy.

Kristen Bell’s taupe nails are adorable. Try Essie “Sand of a Beach.”
Just make sure to shape nails and buff to a shine first; this color also works best on shorter nails.
