Raise your hand if you like to get your nails done before a vacation. (Womp, womp.) Though our travel plans may be on hold this summer, we can still celebrate the season with a festive manicure (or 14) so grab your polish and your favorite drink. It's time to paint.

You can practically hear them crest and break.

For a softer take on neon, mix your brights with a little white polish before sponging it on the tips.

No rhyme or reason. Just use lots of colors.
