Whether it’s embracing ultra-bright colors, fresh new textures, stylish shapes, or daring designs, now’s the time to shake it up. Summer nail art can take your manicure to the next level with creative and fun design ideas.
SUMMER NAIL COLORS
For an easy spring to summer transition, go for pastel nails and enjoy this alluring style. When summer’s in the air, the pastel polish comes out! From mint green to butter yellow, pink, and periwinkle blue, there’s an adorable shade to suit everyone. These bright yet muted hues remind you of fresh flowers and ice cream. Pastels come in a variety of colors, including light blues, purples, pinks, and yellows.
Go for a solid peach color with a matte finish to give yourself a touch of sunshine. Moreover, hot pink, purple with glitter, mandarin orange, beige, sky blue, moon white, coral, periwinkle, peachy pink, neon green, bronze, and candy apple red are all gorgeous color ideas. Girls can even create a rainbow effect by painting each nail a different color.
Similarly, you can experiment with light, neon, and pastel variations to adjust the vibrancy and brightness. The more eclectic you are with your color selection, the more you’re going to stand out with this stylish nail statement.
Vivid and lively, show off your outgoing adventurous personality with bright nail colors. If you plan to be at the beach, in the pool, on a cruise or vacationing anywhere in the world, vibrant and cute nails can mentally prepare you for a good time.
SUMMER NAIL ART DESIGNS
When it comes to a summer-friendly feature, a horizontal, abstract design in rainbow colors looks fresh and cute. Adorn your nails with different drawings, patterns, gems, and graphics to create an amazing mural on your fingers. Just know that summer nail art designs can be anything you want them to be; have fun, be silly, and let your personality shine with your pretty nails.
Graphic Art Nails
For a standout look this summer, go for graphic nails. To properly show off this artistic look, either grow out your nails or choose acrylics in a long shape like stiletto or square. Graphic art nails bring your style to a whole new level. Perfect for women who like to encompass a unique sense of self, these nails are easy to change on a whim.
Think about rainbow nail art! This is the season to go as bright, warm, and tropical as the weather! Create a fruity cocktail of bold shades – think pink, green, red, yellow, and blue. When summer arrives, the rules go out the window, and it’s time to show off your creativity in manicure form. Plus, there are no gloves to hide behind – so your nails can get all the attention they deserve!
French Tip Designs
The French tip nail design has been popular since the 1970s. This elegant design looks fresh at any time of year but adds a sense of cool charm during the summer months. Use a glitter polish for the tips or another light color instead of white.
SUMMER NAIL SHAPES
The coffin nail shape, also known as ballerina style, is what it sounds like: lengthy acrylics with a tapered, squared-off edge that looks like a coffin or ballet shoe. This nail shape has a lot of attitude and also gives you plenty of space to play with color, design, and decoration. You can take them to the next level with holographic foiling, ombré coloring, beads, and jewels.
Always a classic, round nails are versatile and can be played up or down depending on your stylistic preferences. Experiment with bright coral tones or pastel colors, they are a trendy choice this summer. For an elegant finish, paint your nails with a nude polish with added shine. This infuses a hint of glamour without going overboard.
Durable and stylish, square nails are best for women who are afraid of snagging or breaking their nails. They’re also considered the healthiest nail shape as there’s less risk of your nails flaking, catching, or breaking. The shape is easy to maintain at home between salon appointments. Pick a bright neon hue for an exciting change. Muted pastels are a fashionable alternative for those lazy beach days and midday parties.
Almond nail shape looks the way they sound – the base of the nail is left in its naturally rounded state, then the sides are tapered, and the tips are smoothed into a small point. Almond nails are a sexy and glamorous shape. The overall effect makes your fingers look slimmer, and the shape is easy to pair with numerous colors and designs. Because this nail shape requires some length to create, some opt for acrylics to get the almond look. Mix pastel ombre with the block color nails, for the playful and fun summer style.
SUMMER TOE NAILS
Summer is the essential time to have a picture-perfect pedicure because your toes will be on show in sandals, heels, and at the beach. Match your pedicure to your manicure, either in terms of the color, design, or finish.
