Summer is just around the corner and with it comes all the latest summer nail designs. From subtle gradients (just barely visible) to bold French tips, there is sure a bit of something for everyone this summer. But which ones are worth copy and which should be relegated to the back of your cabinet? Here is a guide to all the hottest trends in summer nail designs.
Bright and Citrus Nails: With summer just around the corner, its time to break out the bright oranges, pinks and yellows and welcome in the new season. Bright nail colors are the perfect way to start off the summer season with style and grace. From subtle gradients to dramatic full-on color highlights, bright nail trends are a big hit this summer. This also makes a great time to get your nails done up with chunky accessories for that added pop of color.
Neon Colors: With the summer nearing, it’s now time to embrace the neon colors. Nail art designs such as hot pink, light blue, turquoise and neon colors are in and are set to be the norm in fashion this summer. A popular trend amongst women is to get their fingernails done up in neon colors, with spots or even fake gems added for that extra pop. Other popular nail trends this summer are nail polish with bold patterns and shades as well as full on UV reactive nail polish.
Gold and Brown Nails: A new look for this summer is to incorporate gold into the nail art designs. Whether you go for simple gold filled shells or an elaborate design with alternating bands of gold and brown, these vibrant colors are a great way to add that extra dash of color to your fingers. Nail art is particularly popular amongst teenagers as they tend to have more fun and daring tastes when it comes to their fingernails. Brown and gold colors tend to compliment each other and add that pop of color and beauty that every girl loves.
Gel Polish: Another trend for cute summer nails this year is gel polish. Gel polish nails do not require the use of a base coat like other types of nail designs. These are applied by dipping the tip of a brush in gel then applying a base coat over the entire nail. Gel polish nails do not require a top coat which makes them perfect for those who do not have the time to apply a base coat or those who just want to experiment with different nail colors.
Talking about summer nail designs, it is very important that you consider your own nail color when choosing your polish color. There are many polish colors to choose from. Talking with a nail salon professional is a good idea as they can help you find the right colors to match your skin tone as well as compliment your facial features. For those who are looking for inspiration and tips on these polishes there are many blogs, articles and forums online that can help you pick out the perfect colors.
