Be the Hottest One on Your Summer Vacay

Pack your plane ticket, your sunscreen, and these tips to spend summer vacay at your most beautiful

spring break beauty nail polish colors

Tip no. 1: Be bright, bold, and beautiful

Using color is the easiest way to stand out on a beach of tanorexic bodies. New York City makeup artist Stephanie Flor recommends adding a pop of color on the lips or a bright eyeshadow or waterproof eyeliner for the perfect beach touch.

And don’t forget your nails. Those tiny blank canvases are perfect opportunities to add color. “Go with something bright and sparkly,” says New York City manicurist Tatyana Molot. Orange, fuchsia, and lime green are great spring colors. Another cute idea? “Paint your nails green and draw a yellow smiley face design where the half-moon is,” says New York City manicurist Ana-Maria. (Trace the half-moon, by the cuticle, for the smile and add two dots for the eyes.)
