This Is Summer's Biggest Nail Polish Trend

Pastels are to spring what brights are to summer—and this summer’s trending nail colors are dialing the glow factor all the way up to neon. Think: Shades of fluorescent yellow, pink and blue that are so vibrant they look electric.

To really make a color pop, layer a coat of opaque white polish on underneath. Tip: Pair with a creamy nude on toes to balance things out.

A tangerine polished hand was made to hold an ice-cold glass of sangria (or Aperol Spritz). Just as a purple pedi was made to anchor an orange mani.

A bold turquoise instantly brightens deeper complexions (as does a crisp white on toes).

On the fairer side? Try a vibrant violet mani, which gives the illusion of a subtle tan. Pair with a peach pedi for your next vacation.

One way to beat the heat when you’re stuck in rush-hour traffic getting to the beach? A cool blue polish that reminds you of the ocean. (Namaste.) Keep things tonal on your toes (we like a pale blue or seafoam green).

There's no better way to dip your toe in the neon trend than swiping a vibrant red. Bonus: This summery shade looks equally good on your hands and feet so go ahead and paint yourself a perfect ten.

Doesn’t it make you happier just imagining this pop of pink peeping from your sandals? Try it with a muted green mani for a breezy finish.

Fact: A bold magenta is universally flattering on all skin tones. Wear it with the bright blue above to nail the summer trend.

This electric pink will glow against your skin. Nail art aficionados: We love this shade against a nude base.

A brilliant blue never fails to put us in a better mood. (It helps that it also happens to pair well with pretty much every color on this list.)
