In a blink of an eye, summer flew by! Just because we are heading towards the gorgeous season of autumn doesn't mean we're going to stop wearing some of our favorite nail art trends. These are the top 5 nail art trends of the summer that we cannot say goodbye to yet! 

TBT to the 90s

We're wearing these nostalgic prints and bright colors palettes all year long. 

All That and More: If you’re a ‘90s kid, you probably remember that collecting stickers on your school notebooks was a very big deal. Now, with this fun and quirky mix of patterns and prints, that old-school vibe can be applied to your nails, too! 

Stay Fly: Stand out from the crowd with this striking blue and white design that’s a bit sporty and a bit high-fashion, all at the same time. Pair it with space buns to complete this throwback look.

Dreamy Swirls

We love getting lost in these mesmerizing swirling designs.

For Sherbert: Soft serve isn’t just for ice cream cones. These pastel swirls are a dessert lover’s dream — and will pair effortlessly with all your summertime ensembles.

Feelin’ Wavy: Psychedelic energy never looked so good. A groovy swirl of retro-inspired shades has us daydreaming about all things ‘70s, from beaded curtains to lava lamps.

Sparkling Glitters

When in doubt, wear glitter. It is perfect for everyday wear or a night out!

Glass Half Sparkling: Did someone say champagne? It’s always the right time for a little sparkle — in your glass and on your nails. This shimmering pearl and sheer pink combo will get everyone talking at happy hour. And the extra row of bright purple adds a glittering contrast for this show-stealing mani!

Kaleidoscope: Looking for a true showstopper? Like stars floating in space, this glittering sapphire mani catches light from every direction — it’ll be impossible to look away.


Bright blues are too beautiful to stop wearing.

Beach Waves: 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.

Boot Cut: The perfect blue doesn’t exi— just kidding. It totally does (because we made it)! We can’t get enough of this shade that’s inspired by your favorite worn-in jeans.

Fruity Motifs

Delicious fruit makes for stunning manis.

Juicy Fruit: Think of the best summer of your youth — running through sprinklers, chewing bubblegum. That’s how you should feel whenever you wear this nostalgic, citrusy palette of lime, tangerine, and lemon.

Fruit Salad: The ultimate picnic food, made for your fingertips. With colorful tiny fruits placed on a classic white base, this quirky design will be a summertime fave and an instant conversation starter.
