5 Must-Have Summer Manicures & Pedicures For Every Occasion
There’s something for everyone.
There’s no disputing that summer is the season for living your best life. We’re talking picnics in the park, al fresco dining, shopping at farmers markets, going for hikes and nature-inspired adventures, attending music festivals, and countless other outdoor-friendly activities that make summertime the ultimate social season. With your calendar more packed than ever, you may be facing that age-old question of “What do I wear?” more often than not. And when it comes to the perfect summer manicure, you may also be wondering, “Which nail art design works best for each occasion?”
But never fear! Because at ManiMe, we’ve got you covered with our latest solid gel manis and pedis. They’re filled with plenty of options for your next summer soirée, whether it’s a casual hang with close friends or a destination wedding with hundreds of guests. Below, check out some of our favorite nail wraps for the season, complete with our expertly curated recommendations for when and where to wear them.
Meeting up with the gals for bottomless mimosas and pancakes? Then a crisp white mani and pedi will top off any brunch-appropriate look, whether you step out in a dressy floral frock and heels, or you opt to keep things relaxed in cozy joggers and a tank top (hey, no judgment here).
Weddings are back in full force this year, which means it’s time to update your go-to wedding wardrobe. The classic little black dress is always a reliable choice, and it works for any destination, from the ballroom to the beach. A deep red mani and pedi adds a sophisticated, timeless touch that complements more formal occasions.
There’s nothing quite like breathing in fresh ocean air, and what better way to embrace those #beachvibes than with a pale blue mani and pedi that’s equal parts casual and chic? This soft hue pairs flawlessly with virtually any swimwear option, though we especially love it with an all-white look for that nautical feel.
What we love about farmers' markets: fresh produce, quirky art and jewelry, and refreshing libations (freshly squeezed lemonade, anyone?). What we don’t love: the blistering hot sun that’s giving you some serious sweat beads on top of your forehead. A sun hat is non-negotiable for trips to the farmers' market, as are comfy shoes and breathable fabrics like cotton and linen. Another must-have? This vibrant hot pink mani and pedi never misses the mark.
Remember musical festivals? At long last, outdoor concerts are returning — and with it, the pressure to find just the right ensemble for standing outside in a crowd for hours on end. Closed-toe flats or sneakers are the way to go, especially when paired with deconstructed denim shorts and a cool graphic tee. Don’t forget to finish your festival look with this sunny yellow mani and pedi and, of course, sunscreen!
