The Trends: Summer Nail Art

Published 06/24/2013 by

Getting our nails done is one of our favourite girly past times. With summer days ahead, we’re all about having fun and being playful with our mani and pedis – which are pretty much mandatory with sandal season. Here are a few of the hottest summer nail art trends.

 

Lovely Lavender

This fresh, girly shade is perfect for a summer wedding or garden tea party. Lavender shades have been spotted on the Olsen twins little sis Elizabeth, Brit style icon Alexa Chung and our favourite Kardashian, Khloe.

 

Oh Ombre

These are easier to do at home than you think! You’ll need two shades of polish, topcoat, a makeup sponge and these instructions. Another way to rock ombre is to use a different shade of the same color on each nail. We picture ourselves in ombre for a day at the beach.

 

Almond Shape Nails

Try a new shape for your nails with the edgy almond shape. Or go even edgier with the pointier stiletto nail. Lana Del Rey’s a fan.

 

All White

Inspired by our white collection, we’re trading in the French mani and goin’ all white. We prefer a matte finish. Seen in all white, Miley Cyrus post-pixie cut and model of the moment, Cara Delevingne.

 

Neon Lights

Neons aren’t new, but these bright in your face shades are quickly becoming a summer staple, especially on your toes. Our picks this season: orange or yellow. Who’s spotting neon? Cara Delevingne’s bestie Rita Ora.
