The Best Summer Nail Colors

1. Neons

This goes without saying, but we always see a lot more neon nail colors during the summer. Specifically, we tend to see a lot of hot pinks, yellows, and oranges. These colors are great for complementing that summer glow. 


Erika (@lifelovemani) wears Cirque Colors Kushy. She absolutely loves this neon green creme. If you're a trendsetter and tend to like bold aesthetics, this is the perfect shade for you.

Amanda (@_amandabella) wears Gelish "Ride The Wave" from the new Splash Of Color Summer 2023 Collection. It's a gorgeous neon blue base that contains flecks of shimmery glitter (reminds us of the sun rays reflecting off the ocean on a warm summer beach day).

Giselle (@movemountains) wears DND's Floral Coral. She says, "It's even brighter in person but the camera doesn't capture just how intense this fun, bright coral is." We think it looks great on her and it's the perfect summer nail color.

 Madam Glam Gel Polish - Lightborn

Madam Glam's "Lightborn" may not exactly be that highlighter neon yellow color, but it's still vibrant enough to pack a punch, Part of the new House Of Light Collection, this shade is strong enough to make a statement without being overwhelming.

2. Sheer Nudes / Milky Nails

In contrast to neon nails, we plan on seeing the "Milky Nail" (also called "Lip Gloss Nails") trend continue to be a favorite. This look is for those who prefer to keep a simpler, minimalistic look. All you need is your favorite sheer nude nail color. Popular colors are OPI Bubble Bath, OPI Funny Bunny & CND Negligee.

 



DND "How Do U Neutral" is a sheer shade that glides on like butter and makes for the perfect minimalist mani or base for nail art. The color is part of DND's Sheer Collection.

This look is similar to the Milky Nail Trend except with color. Think late 90s, early 2000s aesthetic....your favorite jelly sandals, jewelry, etc. 

 Cirque Colors - Haze Jelly

Haze Jelly is a sheer lavender-gray jelly nail polish with a shiny transparent finish. Embracing the 90s vibe, this color is from the Glazed Collection, which was inspired by banana milk, gummy bears, platform sandals, and our core childhood memories.

4. Metallics

Think opposite of minimalist...maximalist. A good glitter or chrome shade is the perfect way to take your mani to the next level. Make your nails the topic of conversation. Metallic and duochrome colors are particularly versatile because you can get a variety of different looks in one bottle (depending on how the light hits your nails). KBShimmer is known for their duochrome shades so while you're here, go check them out!
KBShimmer - Pitcher This
KBShimmer's "Pitcher This" is a cherry-leaning polish loaded with colorful, shifting shimmer. In the light, bright gold and copper shimmer accent the scattering of glowing holo flakes. In the shade, the shimmer shows off more muted tones of orange, lime, and red. Sometimes a hint of blue or violet can be seen, turning this cherry shade into fuchsia.
