Summer is a time to break out of the routine and enjoy the warm weather. With summer comes the opportunity to experiment with bright, bold, and fun colors in fashion and beauty, and nails are no exception. Whether you prefer bright neons or soft pastels and florals, there’s a summer nail look for you.
Bold & Bright
One of the most popular trends for summer nails is the use of bold and bright colors. Bright pink like the Barbie nail trend, neon green, and electric blue are all popular choices for adding a pop of color to your summer look. These colors are perfect for standing out in the sun and looking stylish on the beach or at a summer party. Keep in mind though that some neons may fade a bit in the sun.
Pastels & Florals
If bold and bright colors are not your thing, there are plenty of other options. Light pastels like baby blue, mint green, and lavender or florals are perfect for creating a more relaxed and feminine look. These shades are also great for creating a beachy vibe and are perfect for pairing with boho-inspired outfits.
Glitter & Metallic
Another trend for summer nails is the use of glitter and metallic shades. These can add a touch of glamour and sophistication to your look especially in the evening. Gold and silver metallics are the most popular and look great on all skin tones. Glitter can be added as an accent nail or can be used to cover the entire nail for a statement look.
If you’re looking for a more playful and whimsical nail look, then consider trying out nail art. There are countless summer-inspired designs to choose from, such as palm trees, pineapples, and beach scenes (links). An easy way to achieve this without go over budget is by using nail polish strips like those made by Color Street. You can check out my Color Street website here for fun overlays.
Whether you choose bright & bold, florals or glitter for your summer look, it’s important to keep your nails moisturized and protected from the sun. Apply cuticle oil daily to prevent dryness and cracking, and always wear a high-quality sunscreen when spending time in the sun.
Summer is the perfect time to experiment with new nail looks and colors. Whether you prefer bold and bright shades or soft pastels, there’s a summer nail look for everyone. From glitter and metallics to fun and playful nail art, the options are endless. Just remember to keep your nails moisturized and protected from the sun to ensure they look their best and stay healthy and strong throughout the season.
