What are the best summer nail colors?
As we all know, for every season there are a few colors, which are most popular. Summer is no different. So, now we are going to discuss which are the colors that are most popular throughout the sunny season.
Fuchsia. This specific shade of pink is very popular because it is very bright and eye-catching. Pink is a girly color that goes perfectly with any summer outfit. That is exactly why, it is one of the most popular summer colors.
Mint. Mint can be considered a subdued color, but it is definitely one of the more preferred colors. It is not exactly the first thing you see and can look good with any outfit. What’s more, it is a cool color, which can bring some freshness to an otherwise hot summer.
Rose gold. This color has taken the world by storm as of late. It is a mixture of gold and light pink and makes for an amazing shade. It is definitely a color that many girls dawn on their nails and can be combined with a few other shades.
White. I know what you are going to say – white is plain. Let me tell you something, however, white is the perfect summer color. Think of those boho styles and how much this color is a part of them. Even if you keep your nails in just plain white they will still be trendy. Throw in a few decorations, however, and you will be the queen of manicures.
Any metallic colors. Metallic colors are super cool. What’s more they bring a certain glow, which will definitely add a lot of style to your nail design.
You can top your manicure with a matte finish for a more subdued look
Sunset orange. Is there something more beautiful or reminiscent of summer than this color. Needless to say, it is one of the trendiest summer nail colors.
Pearly green. Just like mint, light green is a very beautiful color that doesn’t pop right away, but still has lots of character. Add in the pearly touch and you have the perfect color for your summer nails.
Yellow. Yet another color that is super eye-catching. What’s more, it has been very trendy as of late. It is also a color that is very reminiscent of summer and especially sun and sunshine. Therefore, it is great for your nail design.
Neutrals. Not all of us are fans of bright colors. And that is perfectly okay. For those of you who prefer neutral colors, fear not, they can be trendy as well. Just add a few small decorations to one of your nails to make your manicure a bit more interesting and you are all set.
Coral. Yet another color that is fully reminiscent of summer. Maybe we connect it with the coral reefs and diving, which is why, we think of summer and ocean waves when we see coral. It does help that it is also a beautiful color that would look great on any nail.
