Are you planning an exciting beach getaway this Summer and need ideas for a beach-ready mani? Check out these vacation nail designs and colors that will have you hitting the sand and surf in style.
Whether it’s a 2 hour drive to the coast or a 2 day trip to a tropical destination, I always have a lot of fun planning and prepping for our beach vacations. I love picking out (read: buying on Amazon to my husband’s dismay, lol) the summery dresses I’ll be wearing for day activities and evening dining. I also enjoy pairing up my swimsuits with cover-ups, shorts or linen pants and sandals. But the one thing I look forward to the most is getting my beach-ready mani done at the salon.
This year we’ll be hitting up the coast for a few days so I really need to start looking for that perfect vacation mani that matches the fun and playful vibe of the beach. If you’re like me and need nail inspo for an upcoming beach vacation (or any Summer vacation for that matter), you have definitely come to the right spot. I’ve gone through Instagram and picked out over 50 gorgeous vacation nail designs that are equal parts fun and fabulous. Have a look and see if any of them speak to you.

Favorite DIY Vacation Nail Colors
We all know getting your nails done at the salon is super fun and relaxing. Plus, a professionally done mani is more durable and can last for weeks. However, if you just don’t have the time or budget, here are some of my favorite nail polish colors that are perfect for a beachy DIY vacation mani. Don’t forget a good bottom and top coat to ensure your mani looks beautiful and lasts throughout the trip without chipping or peeling.
