It’s time to give that crusty old bottle of neutral OPI a break and embrace these cute summer nails instead. They’ll help you make your hot girl summer even more scorching, and that plain polish will still be there in a few months. Albeit, more crusty.
So hit up your favorite nail tech or try to recreate these designs yourself. But whatever you do, don’t let your nails be boring. They have the power to be your best accessory on that upcoming trip to Portugal.
No offense, Gucci belt. There’s always next year.
Cute Summer Nails To Carry Your Pool Drink In Style
1. Mermaid Scale Summer Nails
The transformation is complete. Goodbye, cruel world. Hello, underwater castle.
2. Tie Dye Press-On Nails
3. Baseball Nail Design
These summer nails were made for catching rogue baseballs. We prefer it that way, because our dentist wasn’t thrilled last year when we used our face.
4. Watermelon Press-On Nails
5. Sunflower Negative Space Design
There’s nothing negative about these happy sunflower nails. Except the background. And the cramp in our hand from all adding in all those painstaking details.
6. Sunset Ombre Summer Nails
We love our nail tech, but we can’t remember the last time she sprinkled sand on our hands after the lotion. It’s all in the details!
7. Orange Fruit Summer Nails
Aren’t you glad we didn’t make a cheesy pun? Oh, there’s still thyme.
8. Green Daisy Abstract Press-On Set
9. Hot Pink Flamingo Design
Not to raise any alarm, but we think your flamingo might be eating too much shrimp.
10. Black and White Flower Manicure
11. Ocean Swirl Long Nails
Water signs would love these oceanic nails. The only problem is wiping the tears that come during the next flood of emotions.
12. Fruit Slices Nail Set
Feelin’ fruity? These sweet nails have next-level details. So much, that we think someone may have actually eaten the other half.
13. Mismatched Colorful Nails
Bright, quirky, and a little retro, this nail design has everything you need for a carefree summer. Well, except for the Flintstones Push-Pops.
14. Neon Checkerboard Nail Art
Finally, a nail design that we can wear to the Go-Kart track. Our ban is up this year! Turns out it isn’t the same thing as bumper cars.
15. Pink Strawberry Nails
We would be berry pleased to have these on our hands. Almost as pleased as our friends if we stopped speaking in puns.
16. Colorful Abstract Nails
Ok, we like it, Picasso! Thankfully, this nail design will last longer than a TikTok audio trend.
17. Mismatched Pink and Orange Nail Designs
18. Neon French Tip Square Nails
For when you want neon nails, but you also don’t want to blind anyone. Scratching your own eyes out when you’re trying to put in contacts? That’s a different story.
19. Lavender Marbled Press-Ons
The real reason for press-on nails? So you can always match them to your shoes. Good thing we only wear the same white sneakers every day.
20. Sunset Manicure
A gorgeous summer gradient in sunset colors is something anyone can accomplish. Wait, your cuticles aren’t supposed to get polish on them?
21. Pool Day Nails
Everything about this manicure screams “day at the pool.” Except that one red nail. That one screams “shark attack.”
22. Long Lime Green Swirl Nails
Green is the color of the year, so we’re willing to deal with the long nail handicap in the name of glamor. Now, can you open this bag of chips for us?
23. Purple Flame Nails
What’s cookin’, good lookin’? We were talking to that burger on the grill behind you. But your summer nails are cute, too!
24. Dino Doodles Nails
Now we feel bad for not inviting the alien in for dinner. He looks pretty chill with his rainbow UFO.
25. Groovy 3D Nails
This 3D nail design was inspired by groovy rugs from Mush Studios. The creativity is amazing, but…can we get our rug back, now? Our toes are cold.
26. Fourth of July Ombré Nails
It’s giving bomb pop vibes, and we’re obsessed. Mostly because they won’t make our hands as sticky by melting after three seconds.
27. Ice Cream Nails
Speaking of melting, we’re also loving this ice cream design. But we think these are sugar-free or something, because they don’t taste very good.
28. Golf Nails
These golf nails are a hole in one. They pair well with that triple bogey we just scored. Yeah, it was mini golf. And?
