Are you ready for festival season?

The summer is finally here and that means festival season is upon us! In a way, the festival season has already started, with arguably the biggest festival in the world taking place a couple of months ago. That’s right, we’re talking about Coachella, but of course, seeing it was in California and they have an abundance of sun all year round, they don’t need to wait for the summer to host their amazing event. However, here in the UK, we still know how to throw a great festival and we still host some of the most famous ones in the world.

Whether you’re into more alternative music and Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds are more your style, or if dance music is your thing and you will be raving at South West Four, we know that you will be having a great time in the sun this summer in the UK.

Whilst the festivals are mainly about the music and having fun in the sun, there is a huge element of fashion at these events, with Coachella being the most fashionable of them all. In all the biggest magazines and newspapers, there were endless stories about the outfits that were standing out from the crowd. This year is different too; some of the old clichés are out, and fashion icons such as Kate Moss and Alexa Chung have been leading the way with their new styles.

Boho is still cool

There are some things that don’t change with fashion trends and Boho is still the most popular style choice at festivals this season. So, grab yourself a flowy dress, something with a fringe on it and put some flowers in your hair and you will be sure to fit in!

Floral Prints

Florals are not just big for festivals, but they’re massive this summer season. Naturally, many are opting for floral dresses and blouses, but why not go for something more creative? We love this cool look for festivals! Which reminds us… bright coloured cool sunglasses are fab for festival season! Many are ditching their expensive Chanels and Pradas and opting for the fun, plastic sunnies. After all, all that jumping up and down at festival could easily lead to smashed pairs!

Black and White

This is where the trend has changed; it is not all about the neon colours and crazy brightness anymore. People are opting for more mellow outfits and even rocking black and white, monochrome numbers.

Sensible clothes!

Again, we’re really pleased to see that people are more accepting to comfy, weather-appropriate outfits now! (Thank you A-listers who made this cool!) Now it is no longer compulsory to wear hot pants, but you can actually prepare for the unpredictable British weather. Since bomber jackets are really in right now, we are loving these as an addition to your festival outfits this summer. Of course, for events like Glastonbury, wellies are probably a good choice! That being said, they do team up great with hot pants!

A Little Rainbow on your Nails

Ombre nails are back, and they are looking more awesome than ever! They were extremely popular a few years ago, but many people abandoned the idea of this design because it was simply too difficult to create. So, unless you just happen to be a professional nail technician, you are going to have to fork out a pretty penny every couple of weeks to get this design done professionally. However, this summer, ombre nails are back… bigger and better than ever too! So, here at ThumbsUp Nails, we have come up with a great way for you to keep up with the trend, without breaking the bank.

ThumbsUp Nails' New Ombre Collection

We've just launched our new ombre collection, just in time for the summer, and it's our best collection yet! Why mess about with trying to mix all your polishes together and make a mess? Our ombre nail wraps will produce perfect nails without any fuss!

So, what's in our new collection? We have three amazing ombre designs that you will love!


The combination of orange, red and purple, will make your nails look like the summer nights' sky! You know how beautiful it is to watch a sunset on the beach on holiday in the summer? Well, that's what your nails will look like with our sunset ombre nails design!

Why not accessorise with a Tequila Sunrise on a night out too? Who says your nails can't match your drinks? 


Do you prefer a more pastel colour tone? Perhaps you wear lighter shades in your outfits, and a brighter ombre design will stand out too much? Then, Mallow would be perfect for you! Essentially, it's just a combination of pink and blue, but the gradation and the shine make it look like you are wearing a pack of marshmallows on your nails!


There's nothing like being next to a gorgeous ocean, watching the ebb and flow of the waves during the summer. This collection feels like the sea is on your nails! Team this up with any blue or green outfit and you will dazzle everyone around you!

Why the ThumbsUp Ombre Nail Collection?

Have you ever tried doing your own ombre nail design? If so, you probably never want to try it again! It is completely messy, it often turns out wrong and unless you have a good eye for this stuff, you can often get the colour combination wrong.

We already mentioned that getting the job done professional could be really costly, so this is why the ThumbsUp Ombre Nail Wraps are a perfect solution! They are an instant manicure, meaning there is no mess, and you can give yourself a perfect manicure in just a few minutes! Plus, our new ombre nail wraps are only £6.99, meaning you will save yourself a lot of money, compared to the cost of getting it done in a nail salon.

Get some colour into your life and prepare for summer with our ombre nail collection!
