Burgundy color is the color of any season but for summer, it will make your summer sexier if you have anything in burgundy color, so for this summer, we need to do something with burgundy color. One of the easiest thing for us to do is the nail design with burgundy color.
There are not very many universally flattering polish shades out there, but burgundy nails are one of them. While we stand behind sporting deep red nails at any time of the year, they’re especially cozy for the colder months. The rich, warm color perfectly compliments other seasonal shades like gold and white.
We are going to show you 25 burgundy nail ideas so you can slay with some hot nails this summer. From (anything but) basic shimmer to all-out nail art, we’ve got you covered. Read on for some need-to-know basics on maintaining your best burgundy mani, then get inspired in our gallery of awesome nail looks.
