The 5 Best Nail Polish Colors for Summer


It's summer, it's warm and you need a nail polish to match the weather and your mood. Which colors are you immediately drawn to?

These are the best 5 nail polish colors for summer in my opinion. They are suitable for both the pool and the office, and you can find one to match your tastes no matter how tan or not you are.


And if you cannot choose, multicolor manicures are always popular in summer.


Bright Lime Green

Do you want a color that screams sun and good weather? Lime green is your answer. Neon colors pop against a tan and look great on holiday pics. Green in particular suits both colder and warmer skin tones and should be part of your summer nail polish wardrobe.

If you are not a fan of greens, a strong turquoise, deep blue or even bright coral are summery hues in the same neon spirit.


Pastel Coral Orange

This is a color that reminds you of sherbet ice-cream and it is definitely worth trying in summer. Or Spring, or any time you want to look at your nails and smile.


Metallic Gold or Silver

If you do not like the idea of wearing jewelry to the pool or the beach, let your nails take its place instead. A bright metallic gold works great for warm and tanned skins, whereas paler or cooler complexions will look great with a silver or chrome manicure.


White Nail Polish

If there is a time to wear a white manicure, it is summer. But if white is too much for you, you can also combine it with other summery hues such as the neon green or coral we mentioned earlier. Get yourself a nail stamping kit and white stamping polish and enjoy low-effort nail art.


Smoky Gray

A smoky gray or taupe is both summer and office appropriate. If the only beach you will see this summer is on TV, give the season a nod with your choice of nail color. Choose a color that reads as a nude with your skin color and your fingertips will look longer and more elegant. If you are feeling more adventurous, you can't go wrong with a glittery accent nail.
