Colorful Nails

Summer is the season to put on bright, warm, and tropical tones to match the weather! Design an exquisite pastel cocktail with pinks, mints, lilacs, yellows, and baby blues. When summer hits, the rules go out the window, and it's time to let your creativity shine through in the shape of a manicure. 

Acrylic Nails

Acrylic nails are the quickest way to have the long nails you've always wanted. Acrylic nails are also a quick and easy way to adjust the shape of your nails, and unlike gels, they don't involve lamp curing. 

Acrylics are ideal for summer because of their added length and on-trend designs. You'll need to visit the salon for fills and replacements on a routine basis to keep up with these nails. 

Square Nails

If you have inherently thin and flattened nail beds, square nails are an excellent nail shape because they will make your fingertips appear wider. Most people will find these are also the healthiest nail form because there's less chance of nails chipping or breaking. 

When it comes to lengthy nail shapes, squared ends are a popular choice. Experiment with vibrant neutral shades and pastel colors this summer on your square nails.

Peachy Apricot Nails

While there are so many extraordinary ways to play with your nails this summer, one of the most popular looks is a simple design. Every year, peachy apricot shades are a summer favorite, and it's easy to understand why. Peachy nails look great on every skin tone. 

Do not be afraid to pair peach with a wide range of shades, including navy, pink, and white. It's feminine and subtle yet whimsical, and it looks great with gold and rose-gold accessories, which is always on trend for summer.

Round nails

The traditional round shape or oval shaped is also on-trend for this summer for a more subdued look. This sleek and straightforward manicure form is incredibly flexible, and it's a big hit. 

When painted in a vivid or pastel shade, round nails can draw attention; when combined with a nude varnish, they can be the pinnacle of refinement. If you crave a classically elegant design, round nails are a terrific choice because they are natural and low-maintenance.

Floral Nails

What could be more appealing than a floral manicure? Summertime is synonymous with this charming nail style. It's feminine, playful, and a tad retro. Try mixing pastel colors with flowers on your nails for a fresh take on the trend. This design is incredibly Instagrammable, and you will see it all over this season.

Almond Nails

A sensual and glamorous design, almond nails are long and tapered to an attractive tip. They derive their name from the almond nut's appearance. Almond nails are a universally appealing shape that slims down your fingers and nail beds while also keeping your nails robust. 

Because this nail form has some length, some people choose acrylics to achieve the almond effect. For a lively and entertaining summer look, combine pastel ombré with block color nails.

Glitter Nails

The glitter element is the most simple design if you look to liven your nails for summer. Put Glitter Top Coat over nude color nail polish for the most low-maintenance and timesaving solution. 

Using glitter nail polish, you can create one-of-a-kind artwork. This summer, for a colorful touch on this trend, use gold or multi-colored glitter in your manicure design. It will be a disco for your beautiful nails!

Coffin Nails 

Are you looking for a fabulous nail shape for summer? Long nails with a tapering, squared-off edge that resembles a coffin or ballet shoe make up the coffin nail shape, also termed ballerina style. These nails are the perfect summer shape for an edgy look. This nail shape covers many personalities and allows you to experiment with color, design, and embellishment. With holographic foiling, ombré coloring, pearls, gems, or nail art, you can take this nail design to the next level. Some of the most popular Instagram influential stars can be seen rocking this nail shape!

Neon Nails

When you are super into the neon trend, the key is to pick a shade that complements your skin tone. Lime green, electric blue, and yellow are ultra-bright acid hues that explode against darker complexions. If you have more of a fair toned complexion to get the most of this vivid trend, opt for hot pink and purple nail colors.

Gel Nails

Cute Summer Nails

A gel manicure is a simple technique to extend the life of your nail style and pattern. Gel nails are relatively softer than artificial nails, giving them a more natural appearance. The gel is a good option if you want to lengthen your nails but don't want to deal with the upkeep of acrylics. 

Gel nails for summer look great with all of your favorite summer clothing, whether you stick to a natural theme or choose a vibrant color palette. Add charming features like a happy face or stripes to mix it with different textures like matte and gloss. You can quickly erase your gel color at home if you get exhausted with the shade and try something new. 


Summer is officially here, which means it's time to start thinking about your summer nails. Not only do they look lovely wrapped around a frozen margarita, but also will look amazing with exciting summer activities approaching. Trying a set of vibrant, cute summer nails may instantly put you in the mood for summertime.
