11. Soft Ombre: To keep things simple if your outfit is a bit extra, opt for a basic, soft ombre where the country鈥檚 colors fade softly into one another.

12. Orange Slices: Orange slice nails are super summery and immediately draw attention with their bright colors, so why not deck out your nails with the print?!
