Summer Nail Trends: Nudes, Neons, and Pastels

July 22, 2017

CLASSIC NUDES

 

Consider nude nail polish the manicure world's greatest hit-next to sheer ballerina pinks and fire engine reds. But there's a difference between nude nails and naked nails. True nudes like Deborah Lippmann's Naked ($16; beauty.com), Sephora by OPI's Neutral Beauty ($9.50; sephora.com), and YSL's Beige Leger ($25; yslbeautyus.com) elongate your fingers and look great on manicures of all lengths, while naked nails are just that-bare. Amp up the look with Chanel's Island ($26; chanel.com), a sheer fawn with rose gold shimmer.

 

Nude colors aren't limited to sandy beige hues. If you have a deeper skin tone, opt for lacquers like Jenna Hipp's RGB Nail Foundation in F2 ($16; rgbcosmetics.com) or Lancome's Vernis in Love in Beige Dentelle ($15; lancome-usa.com), shades that are more cafe au lait than peach. If you're stuck, reach for one-size fits all sheers like MAC's Skin ($16; maccosmetics.com), or Sally Hansen's Smooth amp Perfect in Dune ($6; ulta.com) if you want a bit of shimmer.

 

 

DAY-GLO NEONS

 

Talk about looking on the bright side! Neon hues are having their biggest moment since Duran Duran topped the charts. Lacquer up in electric shades like Essie's Action ($8; essie.com), or Rescue Beauty's Cuprum ($20; rescuebeauty.com), a vivid, foil-like cobalt. Don't forget iconic highlighter shades like China Glaze's Yellow Polka Dot Bikini ($7; ulta.com), or Orly's Popsicle ($8.50; orlybeauty.com).

 

Neons have the tendency to blend with your natural nail color, resulting in a faded version of the high-octane shade in the bottle. Make sure your talons really stand out by painting a layer of white nail polish before the bright hue for a more saturated color. Try an ivory like Revlon's Calla Lilly ($7; ulta.com before going pretty in pink (and purple!) with NARS's Ratin Jot ($18; narscosmetics.com), or China Glaze's Hang Ten Toes ($7; sallybeauty.com). We also love American Apparel's nail polish in Neon Green ($6; americanapparel.net), and Illamasqua's punchy mint nail varnish in Nomad ($14; sephora.com).

 

 

PRETTY PASTELS

 

Layer a high-gloss top coat over opaque formulas like Pop Beauty's Pink Popsicle ($10; ulta.com) and MAC's Life or Beth ($16; maccosmetics.com), a sugary-sweet orange, to keep them from looking chalky. We also love the pearly metallic finishes of Paul amp Joe's nail polish in Sprite ($14; b-glowing.com), and Zoya's Meg ($8; zoya.com).

 

Delicate shades like Butter London's Trout Pout ($14; sephora.com) and Laura Mercier's Lavender Cloud ($18; lauramercier.com) don't have to come off as prim and proper. Pair them with tougher elements to give your ensemble a feminine edge. Dolce amp Gabbana's Lemon ($20; saks.com) adds a punchy citrus accent to an all-black getup, while Dior's St. Tropez Vernis ($23; sephora.com) makes studded accessories look even bolder.
