What better way to get in the summer mood than with a bright, tropical manicure? The intense pink nail polish is skyrocketing in popularity because of the Barbie movie craze. Our verdict? We love it and want to see MORE of it! If you want to stand out from the crowd, give it a playful twist! Get some leaves or palm trees decorations to really accentuate that Hawaiian feel!

Long nails aren’t really your thing, yet you want a funky nail art design? You certainly don’t need to go to such lengths (pun intended) to experiment with your manicure! One of the best ways to do that is by abstract designs and bold, neon colors! They look stunning in contrast to your tanned summer skin.

Matte Pink Ombre Nails

The undefeated summer nail trend by far is no other than the ombre! Let’s be real, it’s kind of impossible not to love this design. The color combinations you can try out are endless! Some of the best ones I’ve tried so far are with pink, neon orange, green and yellow. If you want to give the manicure a more muted and refined look, simply switch the glossy top coat with a matte one, and voilà!

Pink Metallic French Tip Acrylic Nails
