Maybe you surf. Maybe you just swim a lot, fish, or boat. Whatever your love affair with the water, you can show it on your nails.
Creating beautiful scenery involving water is one way you can approach this look. Waterfalls work perfectly for this, especially if you have really long nails.
The waterfalls can start at the bed and end in a white mist at the tips of your nails. You can also create a panoramic look of a singular large waterfall, like Niagara, across your four nails on each hand.
Speaking of panoramas on your nails, you can also create an ocean view or a river view in the same manner. The ocean view ends with “beaches” created with textured nail polish in gold or sandy colors.
The river view motif can be slow-moving or with rapids, and with trees and rocks in the river and near the river’s edge.
Another idea is to paint blue waves on your nails. These may appear as single “tube” waves that surfers create and move through while on their boards, or as waves depicted in ancient Japanese art and Japanese scrolls.
Some wave designs just depict multiple blue swirls in concentric circles all over your nails, and these designs can be really beautiful too if and when you (or your nail artist) use nail stencils to create these patterns.
Finally, the basic, but elegant, blue water designs on your nails are comprised of two or three shades of blue nail polish.
Two shades of blue split each nail horizontally in half. The last shade of blue creates a small wave right in the center of each nail.
Show your love of water with these blue water nail ideas that are great anytime of year.
