The Daily Grind Video

You know what we love? Three day holiday weekends.

You know what we love even more than 3-day holiday weekends? The time it gives us to focus on other things… like watch bad reality TV or dabble in some themed nail art.

Memorial Day Weekend is here which means the season for lighting up the grill and gathering in the back yard is finally upon us. How else are we to kick off summer than with some BBQ inspired nail art? 

Designs that run the gamut of hot dogs, hamburgers and summer fruit aren’t for the faint of heart… or for the timid of fashion. If you’re one of the few daring to dabble in some nail art that may make biting your fingernails (which is gross) more appetizing, we’ve rounded up some bbq-ready nail inspirations.

Once you do paint your nails, upload the beauties to Instagram with the hash tag #GGManiMonday for a chance to be featured on the site! 

Who doesn’t love a little melon refreshment? The beauty of this design is that the lines don’t have to be perfect for you to get the designer look. 

Chicken, ribs AND shrimp? This is a design for the steady handed. 

We love that the hot dog is one finger of fine perfection. Look at that impressive bun action! This is for the expert level nail designer. 

A simpler approach to hot dogs are straight lines of layered polish. 

Hamburgers can get a little messy, so it’s OK if your design does too. 

And if all else fails, there are always good ol’ nail stickers to get the job done. 

Editor’s note: 

All nail art fun aside, let’s not forget the real reason we are granted with Memorial Day, which is to honor those who died in active military service.
