This Mani Is Summer On Your Nails

Every time we DIY our nails at home, we reach for the same neutral hue. It’s pretty, it goes with everything, and we don’t see a real reason for changing it up. But, since we've long swapped our hot (spiked) chocolates for chilled cocktails, we sought some much-needed mani inspiration from one of our favorite warm-weather drinks: rosé and strawberry sangria. Above, nail guru Natalie Pavloski creates a colorblocked mani inspired by one of chef Chloe Coscarelli's go-to summertime sips. Not only is Coscarelli's use of rosé a refreshing addition to the drink, but Pavloski's nail art — created with just two shades from essie's latest collection — is basically summer on your tips. (But, don't worry, you can still use your trusty neutral lacquer for this look.) Now, pick a polish and drink up. On Chloe: Jennie Kayne top, J Brand jeans, Tibi shoes, J. Crew necklace; On Natalie: Topshop top, Prada pants, Dieppa Restrepo shoes.
