I don’t know about you, but I have been *not so patiently* waiting for warm weather, tank tops, and a chance to wear bright nail colors. The simple luxury of a bright mani not only compliments my summer capsule wardrobe, but it brightens my mood. What more could a girl want?
In summer 2022, light, neutral colors are on the back burner in favor of brighter, lighter hues in every color of the rainbow. Pink, red, green, blue, orange—you’ll find yourself having a hard time choosing. For some inspiration, we’ve rounded up the ones we can’t stop thinking about.
1. French Tips
If you’re not into a bright hue, don’t worry: The classic French tip will never go out of style. Luckily, this summer, we’re seeing it with the traditional white (perfect for brides!), but we also love a bright tip. It feels summery without too much of a commitment.
And if you’re down to go all out, just put all your favorite colors on your nails at once! A rainbow skittle is perfect if you want to try a bunch of different colors at once before committing.
3. Hot Pink
A quintessential summer hue, bright pink is a color you’ll never regret. You can go full Barbie pink or more fuchsia.
4. Neon Orange
We are seeing orange everywhere: in fashion, beauty, and manicures. We’re loving this neon shade for summer, especially with a little extra glow to our skin after a day at the pool.
Red will always be a classic, but for summer, we love when it’s a little brighter and more neon. This cherry red shade still looks professional and striking, but it doesn’t feel too out there. It’s perfect if you’re looking for a fun shade but still don’t want to go too far outside of your comfort zone.
Hello to the shade of the summer! Pistachio is having a moment right now, and you can be in on the trend by choosing it for your nails. After all the emeralds and jewel tones of fall and winter, this is a fresh take on green.
But don’t worry: Green is also getting the neon treatment. This lime shade is so bright and fun that every day will be full of sunshine even if there is a summer rain shower happening outside.
Turquoise is having a comeback. If you want to be an early adopter of the trend, this nail color is extra cool and quite unique.
