Our favorite poolside cocktail & mani pairings

Add a fresh mani and an even more refreshing beverage together by the pool? It doesn't get any better.

If you’re getting ready to hit the pool, it goes without saying that your day won’t be complete without a couple of essentials: a towel, sunscreen, headphones, and a stack of magazines. Also necessary? A freshly applied manicure and a freshly squeezed cocktail.

There are countless summertime refreshments to choose from, so we put together some of our favorite mani-cocktail combos for the season. It’s all the inspiration you need to have a relaxing afternoon catching rays, sipping on a flavorful libation, and avoiding screen time.

Watermelon Rush and Watermelon Mojito

Watermelon is pretty much the official fruit of summer, so of course, it deserves a little mani love! With bright green and perky pink elements — plus raised gel water droplets — this design is sweet, fresh, and a true conversation starter. It only makes sense to pair this mani with an equally sweet and refreshing watermelon mojito. Don’t forget to garnish the rim with a slice!

Neon Summer and Piña Colada

This ‘80s-inspired patchwork of vibrant neon hues is an instant party starter. A playful palm leaf print adds a touch of tropical relaxation, making it an ideal mani for poolside lounging. All that’s missing to create the ultimate day-off ensemble? A creamy, silky smooth piña colada that’s either garnished with a pineapple wedge, maraschino cherry, or both.

Feelin Wavy and Classic Margarita

Psychedelic energy never looked so good. This groovy swirl of retro-inspired shades is serving up serious ‘70s vibes. Our go-to cocktail for this mani is a classic margarita that’s made with high-quality tequila and zesty fresh limes. The key to making a margarita you’ll love? Proportions — make sure you find the right ratio of liquor and lime juice.

Sprinkle Sundae and Strawberry Frosé

Is there anything better than a trip to the ice cream parlor? Ice cream is the ultimate summertime treat, which is why this sprinkle-filled, semi-sheer mani is a seasonal favorite. A blended strawberry frosé strikes just the right balance between a frozen cocktail and a sprightly warm weather wine.

Beach Waves and Mermaid Mule

So the pool isn’t quite the beach. And if you can’t get to the beach, bring the beach to you. With a calming, gradient-like palette of turquoise and sand, this mani instantly transports you to sunny days and ocean waves. Opt for a matching blue cocktail made with Curaçao, a blue liqueur made from aromatic citrus peels. Think of it as an unexpected, bolder twist on a Moscow Mule (no copper mugs required).
