Festival season is fast approaching and we can’t wait for those long sunny days. Festival season is all about spending time with friends, enjoying live music and festival fashion. More importantly, we can’t wait for the festival nails.

Whether you’re keeping it chic and simple or ready to embrace all things wild, we have some nail art inspiration perfect for your festival adventure.

Be sure to prep your nails using, Purify, Prep and our Structure Base Coat Don’t forget to seal in all that hard work with our Brilliance Top Coat. Dot on some Revitalise cuticle oil to nourish the skin surrounding the nail.

Keep it understated.


Achieve using I Simply Love Your Nails with dots of Candid Moment and I Am So Honoured.

Top Tip, to achieve perfect dots use the pointed end of an orange stick, to gently dot on the design.


Achieve this look using Fake Bake and Pineapple Premiere, adding in the space between the colours really makes the yellow pop, and gives the illusion of longer nails. 

Take a step on the wild side 

Achieve this watercolour look using My Main Beach and for the colourful design start with a base of White Hot, add in My Main Beach, add in Drop Dead Gorgeous (that deep blue shade), Who R U Wearing, for that lighter blue shade Crème De La Crème for the subtle coral cream shade. 

Try this Navaho pattern using a base of Sea Cloud Cruise for the baby blue, White Hot for the stand out nail. For the print, use Sea Cloud Cruise again for the lighter shade of blue, followed by Midnight Affair and a stand out centre of Mimosas By The Pool.

Top Tip, to get the faded look, apply the pattern before curing the white base. Use an orange stick to gently apply the other colours by dipping the orange stick onto the nail and gently moving the stick in the desired pattern shape without touching the nail. 

Go Bold 

Go Geo with the stand out blue look. Achieve using Country Club Chic as a base, White Hot and Black Stretch Limo

Show your festival some love with the XO design using Red Carpet Reddy, Star Power, I Simply Love Your Nails and Socialite Status.  

Get creative with some gems with this sea blue look, using Sea Cloud Cruise, Big City Nail Applique and Twinkling Crystal Nail Jewels.

Top Tip, apply a coat of Brilliance over the jewels and appliques for a longer lasting nail art design.
