This summer, we’ve fallen in love with a bold array of nail trends. From sparkly, to bright, to glittery and neon, Summer 22-23 nail trends are all about fun and expression. Here’s some inspo to your show your nail tech (and colours you can use at home!).
Pink made a major comeback in fashion this summer, so it’s no surprise that pink nails are top of the charts, too. From fuchsia to rose to salmon, there’s a trendy pink with your name on it.

If there’s one thing summer isn’t afraid of, it’s colour. And the brighter, the better! We’re loving shades of yellow, orange and coral, and have a special place in our hearts for Y2K-inspired neons. Worried they may be too much for the office? Opt for a bright pedi instead.
