Summer starts tomorrow and everyone is excited about the warmest season of the year. Summer means outdoor festivals, picnics, wearing light fabrics, bright makeup, and of course, cute summer nails. Here are ten must-have nail art looks to try this season.
1. Marble Print
We love this colorful marble nail design. To recreate at home, use a nude tone as your base and play with the print only in the middle of your nail. We recommend using warm colors, such as orange, pink, and purple.
2. ’70s Pattern

The ’70s are trending, especially when it comes to nails. Instead of a typical French manicure, try switching it up with a fun ’70s-inspired pattern. We recommend getting this design done by a nail artist, as it has a lot of tiny details that make the print so special.

Neon nails never go out of style for summer and this bright yellow shade is perfect for the season. Try matching it with a nude tone, so the neon tone can really stand out. If you want to add an extra pop of color, try painting your pinky nail in the same bright tone.
4. Two Tones
Violet and pink were super popular in recent fashion shows and this ombré nail look combines both colors. This technique can easily be recreated at home with two nail polish shades, a sponge, and a little patience.
5. Pink and Orange
Pink and orange look fresh when you wear them on your nails, like a refreshing sorbet on a hot day. To recreate this look, we recommend oval nails to underscore the orange swirls.
6. Checkered French
The classic French manicure gets a ’70s update. Use a neutral tone as a base, so the attention can be focused on the print and the colorful french. We recommend you use vibrant colors like orange, pink, blue, and green so the design can really pop.
7. French Lines
This colorful design is perfect for long oval nails and anyone who loves color. The negative space elongates the nail and you can use an array of shades to make this look happen. You just need a steady hand or visit a nail artist.
8. Everything Orange

This design is for the girls that don’t like to experiment that much with their nails but still want to have fun with them. Little details can make a huge difference and here, switching the classic white for a bright orange French, makes a huge difference on the nails. Ask your nail technician to add a double coat of the final clear coat to make them look even brighter.
9. Half and Half

This is a fun DIY nail you can do at home. First, make sure your nails are fairly long and you have them in an almond shape. Next, you will need a squared makeup sponge, a neutral tone for one half, and your favorite summer colors for the other half. We recommend you use pink, orange, green and yellow colors.
10. Florals and Pastels

We love these cute summer nails with a pastel palette and delicate summer flowers. This one is for the square-shaped nail lovers and features curvy lines. For the flowers you can paint them or use stickers, just make sure to keep them small and ideally in white to let the colors shine.
