DIY: Cool and Easy Nail Art Ideas For Summers

The best thing about being a woman is that I can style myself from head to toe, and no one can find that odd. Apart from fabulous clothing and makeup, I can even paint my nails (how lucky we women are). Nail painting takes immense patience and somehow I find this quote completely true- ‘the woman is helpless when her nail polish is drying out’.

Yet many times, my nail polish has turned bad (lack of patience) yet I don’t tire from beautifying my nails. My love for nail polish made me hunt for unique designs which I could style on my nails and that’s when my Instagram was flooded with nail art designs.
