When it comes to nails, the sky’s the limit. There’s virtually nothing that you cannot do to your nails to make your fingers look extra poppin’. This summer, though, we want to make sure that our nails stand out amongst the sea of manicures. Whether it be a simple all-over nail colour or an OTT nail art, we’ve gotchu prepped for the nails of your dreams. Ahead are some nail inspos that you could bring with you to your next nail appointment – or you could even do them yourself.
Make your nails look super adorable by doing Korean blush nails. This trend will make your nails look like they’re blushing, and it’s just way too cute to pass up. Plus, you can do this in the comfort of your home by using a gel nail polish and a pink eyeshadow to create that blush effect.
Ombre Pink Nails
Ombre nails are coming back strong, and considering that fuchsia is the colour of summer, what better way to combine those two trends together?
Hailey Bieber Glazed Donut Nails
As we scroll through Hailey Bieber’s Instagram page, some of us are awestruck by her beauty. But for others, their eyes immediately gravitate towards her nails, which seem to feature the trend of the season.
Harry Styles Oatmeal Nails
Hailey Bieber is not the only celebrity who is setting nail trends, as Harry Styles is barging in with not only a trend, but also his own line-up of nail polish shades, Pleasing. The award-winning singer is currently on the cover of Better Homes & Gardens with oatmeal coloured nails which look super chic – and perfect for those who prefer a more subdued nail colour.
Matcha Green Nails
For our matcha lovers, you surely don’t want to miss this nail trend. A beautiful and soft green colour that brings life and pop to your nails, and adds the right amount of zing to your everyday style.
Blood Red Nails
Just because it’s summer, doesn’t mean we can’t include and appreciate darker hues – and blood red nails are the perfect choice! The colour will make your fingers look super sexy, and you’ll exude bad b**ch vibes like nobody’s business.
Go futuristic with metallic silver chrome nails for that OTT summer nail look. It’s the hottest nail trend of the season with celebrities like Dua Lipa and Julia Fox showing off their chrome claws for the masses.
If going big is not your thing, then minimalism should be your next option. Thin and delicate lines – like French tips – should do the trick this season. It’s giving “I still want to do my nails and make them look chic, but without doing too much” vibes.
