The 8 Nail-Art Trends We're Seeing Everywhere This Summer
In the midst of the dead heat of summer, fun accessories are top of mind. Our sandals are peep-toed with clear PVC straps. We're gravitating toward the most shockingly bright purses on the shelves, like neon-green tote bags with fisherman-knot threading. And as for the cheapest accessory of all, our manicures? Those babies are feeling fresher than ever.
Chalk it up to the 4th of July holiday, but we're seeing star nail art everywhere right now. Considering all the subtle and chic variations, we're guessing the print will stay on trend well after Independence Day.
Summer's most unexpected nail-art trend is the egg nail. An egg manicure might sounds as cheesy as your Sunday-morning breakfast scramble, but hear us out: The curved, yolk-like design is surprisingly chic. The white and yellow color play is both bright and muted at the same time, and the play on eggs can be as obvious or subtle as you want.
No one saw fish nails coming, but they're surprisingly adorable and on-trend indefinitely. Place your colorful goldfish design over a clear jelly base to give your mani freshwater vibes.
While there's something to be said for the neutrality of sheer, pale-pink polish, this season's breakout nail-art trend is the total opposite. It's a loud, fluorescent — think tangerine and magenta — ombré fade that will seriously up your nail game. We're in love with this look: a diffused two-toned fade on each individual nail, with a matte instead of the usual glossy.
No shade to winter, but the start of summer feels like a much more appropriate time to wear sparkles and sequins. Plus, a gold foil accent can be surprisingly low-key and minimalist when paired with the perfect nude base polish.
