Sunflower nails are the peak summer mani trend you need on your fingertips

When it comes to livening up our home decor and giving any room a summery makeover, no type of flower does the trick quite like a bouquet of sunflowers. The large, yellow florals are the quickest way to brighten up a room, and considering that peak sunflower season is right now (mid-summer), there’s no better time to stock up.

An easy way to ensure that you have the ultimate feel-good flower around at all times? By painting it on your fingertips. Sunflower nails are the sunniest and most joyful nail art trend of the season, and a surefire way to spread summertime vibes everywhere you go.
