The coolest nail trends for Summer

Summer gives us an excuse to go all out in fashion, because really, what’s more fun that adding a lot of color to your look? It’s the season to be creative, and these nail polish trends will surely add a little extra to your sunny style.

Neon Orange

This citrusy hue is guaranteed to turn heads, as seen on the models of Jeremy Scott’s Spring/Summer 2018 runway. But it’s not your usual orange polish. It has a matte finish that adds a clean and classy touch to this otherwise loud color.


Embellished Flowers

The clear skies and warm weather calls for a flower-inspired nail style that recalls the quirky fashion of the 70’s. The base is a black matte, while the flowers are adorned with crystal embellishments.

Hot Pink

Just like neon orange, bright pink hues are in again, thanks to Rihanna’s Fenty runway show.


Metallic Accents

Here’s a nail art design that is surely out of this world: base matte colors with splatters of gold metallic polish. It’s the perfect polish for a glam look.

The New Nude

The usual nude polish includes a glossy finish or white French tips, but this version is slightly different. It’s a matte baby pink color that doesn’t have a shiny top coat, making it look effortlessly sophisticated and easy to maintain.


French Tip with a Twist

The ubiquitous French Tip style gets an upgrade with pastel tips that are subtle and perfect for short nails.


If there’s one takeaway from this season’s nail trends, it’s that less is more. Subtle glitter on the  tips will add a touch of glam to your nails. What’s great is that it’s not meant to look too precise or serious, so anyone can recreate this style.
