Don't want to miss out? Keep on scrolling to nail down the top 5 trends we are *loving*:

Minty Green

Minty Green. Spearmint. Sage. No matter what you call this colour, it probably comes as no surprise that it’s one of the top trending nail shades of the summer. Reminiscent of a retro beach vacay or mint ice cream on a hot day, this nail hue arrived on the scene early this spring and is obviously here to stay. Wear it alone for an understated manicure or use it as an accent for refreshing nail art.

Pastel Swirls

Speaking of nail art, complex nail designs have become a hot pick in the manicure world. Negative space swirls and abstract nails are some of the most in demand, but this season, swirl nails are taking a colourful turn. Pastel swirls are the new hit of the summer with everything from cotton candy hues and periwinkle shades making their way to fingertips. Try out the look with a monochromatic nail colours or mix and match your favorite pastel shades.

French Tip

The 90’s are calling baby and French tips are back! White tip, bright tip, rainbow tip, blue tip—no matter what your style, this manicure is everywhere this summer. If you are looking for something that goes beyond a solid colour, but you aren’t quite on board with crazy nail art, this is the perfect in between. Try experimenting with playful seasonal shades or change it up the traditional French tip with a v-shape tip for a fun twist.


Not just for dive bars and raves, neon is making its way to nails for the summer. These vibrant hues are the perfect way to brighten up the warm weather vibe, not to mention they look utterly flawless on the fingers and toes. Try out an electric yellow, a bright pink or coral to pair with your summer dress.

Whimsical Accents

Dainty flowers and smiley-faces have been some the most popular (though unexpected) accents in 2021. Perfect to spice up a nude nail or solid manicure, these whimsical accents add personality to any hand. Add a palm tree for your beach vacation, a delicate daisy to your ring finger or a full-on manicure of yellow smiley faces for an uplifted effect.
