10. Flower Nails

We saw flowers everywhere during spring so it's no surprise that the trend is carrying over into summer. With a search volume increase of 43%, we can definitely expect to continue seeing this trend. Luckily flowers are timeless and can be done a million different ways!

9. Orange Nails

Orange is such a summertime color, and probably the only time you could pull off something so bright, so it makes sense that this nail color is trending. Make sure you're opting for a bright, vibrant orange instead or something darker that will lean more into Fall.

8. White Nails

Another color that a lot of people can only pull off during the summer, because, let's face it... you need to be a little bronzed to pull off the white nail. White can really accentuate your tan and feels so summery, clean, and fresh!

7. French Manicure

The French Manicure is a true classic. This timeless look is elegant, understated, and makes your hands look so classy. The French Mani will never go out of style, and nowadays there are so many fun variations you can choose from to make them more personal to your style!

6. Pearl Nails

Searches for pearl nails have been up ever since Bridgerton aired. To pull off this trend, opt for a nude or light pink base, with small pearls glued atop. The 3-D look will really stand ut despite the neutral colors.

5. Strawberry Nails

Strawberries are a staple for summer, so naturally, strawberry nail designs made it onto this list. The color scheme of strawberries is so cute and summery, and very on-trend.

4. Almond Ombre Nails

The almond shape is always a popular choice for nails because it's so flattering to everyone and looks natural. An ombre nail is where the nail artist blends two colors together. There are so many color combos to choose from, and we anticipate seeing some bright ones this summer!

Why have matte nails when you could have glitter nails? Glitter instantly makes the nails more fun and exciting. You can dress them down or dress them up. You can opt for a hot pink or subtle baby pink, and accessorize with glitter or rhinestones to make them pop!
