You’ve got a trip to pack for, the beach calling your name and enough holiday weekend plans to fill your social calendar and then some. Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start to summer, but more importantly, it’s also an opportunity to kick your beauty regimen into high gear starting with your nails.
