"Egg Nails" Are Trending For Summer — & They're Surprisingly Chic

You never know what unexpected pattern will take off as a hot new nail trend. A few weeks ago, goldfish were all the rage. Before that, celebs like Kendall Jenner and Ariana Grande couldn't get enough of cow print. And the newest nail-art trend that's edging its way onto our summer mood board is undeniably bizarre, but low-key adorable: eggs, served sunny-side up.

We recently spotted the white-and-yellow pastel design delicately plated on the feeds of Instagram's in-the-know nail pros. Considering the sunny color pairing and the clever design concept, we're predicting it will continue to gain traction well into summer. From a curved yolk-like design on every finger to a single thumb accent, scroll through for every way to style the egg manicure — then watch everyone else copy your order.

For the least egg-y take on the trend, try a two-toned design like this one. The slight curve of the yellow polish hints at a yolk, but wouldn't offend a vegan.
The asymmetrical mani — in which every finger is painted with a different design — meets the most important meal of the day.
The runny yolk on the pointer finger is a funky spin on the classic French tip.
Nail pro Betina Goldstein (who helped usher in the cuticle striping trend) used three Julep polishes to make her egg tones really pop: Bombshell (a creamy white), Bea (a true yellow), and Cody (a peachy orange).
For the maximalist, we recommend pairing your gold foil base with an unexpected fried-egg accent.
This look combines two of our favorite of-the-moment nail trends: eggs and thumbnail art.
