Inhaling coffee? Slapping yourself to stay awake? Don’t worry – we know the feeling, because this Monday is a doozy. Our 4th of July celebrations have come to an end – and for many of us, that means saying goodbye to the beach, bikinis, and beer, and hello once again to the office (dun, dun, dun). So if you find yourself staring into space and dreaming of days past- have no fear, because Manicure Monday is here. We’ve found 9 amazingly cute DIY manicure ideas from our favorite nail-art Instagrammers that are bound to put a little pep in your step.

To kick things off (no pun intended), we found this fun and sporty World Cup inspired mani from @chelseaqueen. One word to describe these nails? Ballin. (Couldn’t resist) Make sure to check out how Chelsea created this look over at her website!
