28 Best Summer Nail Art Designs


Nail art – it’s the easiest way to add a little extra pizzazz to any manicure situation. So when summer comes around and all we want to do is add some jazz to our fingertips and bring the sunshine inside, joyful nail art is our first port of call.

What’s the summer 2021 way to wear nail art?

‘For summer 2021 I’m definitely into designs that have a pop of colour or gold accent,’ says queen of understated nail art and A-list manicurist Betina Goldstein. ‘I also tend to experiment with more fun designs like fruits, flowers, waves, etc. They brighten your mood!’

What nail shades are hot for summer 2021?

‘I always love a vibrant red with orange undertones or bright Mexican Pink for summer,’ says Goldstein. ‘I tend to wear a lot of white and beige linen throughout summer and I feel there is something so chic yet playful about pairing them with a vibrant nail. I have also been loving different hues of blue right now, whether it’s more of a pale blue or a bright neon blue.’
