Chances are that, this time of year, your daydreams consist of being in a tropical locale surrounded by sparkling turquoise waters and white sand. But if you’re not quite there just yet, the latest nail trend is basically meant to take your manicure and your frame-of-mind on a vacation—no plane ticket necessary.

Ocean-inspired nails are rolling in with the tide, and they’re here to let you channel the beach wherever you are (even if it’s at the office). Because science shows that living near the beach or being ocean-adjacent helps to lower stress and improve mental clarity. What’s more: By opting for a sparkling-water-inspired hue, you could help yourself to channel that calm in even the most stressful situations with a quick glance down at your manicure.

“Find Me An Oasis by Essie reminds me of the cool blue summer and days spent at the ocean,” says Nadine Abramcyk, co-founder of nail salon Tenoverten. “It’s a pretty pale blue with a white undertone. And for something with a bit more depth and a strong nod to the ocean tones I like Tenoverten’s Austin shade.”

If you’re thinking that your blue-attention span will last but one manicure, and then you’ll have to move on to something else, think again. The deep blue hues, vivid aquamarine, and marine teals that—when applied to your tips—make your nails look like the dazzling sea, will provide endless inspiration all-summer long. Surf’s up.
