Summer is upon us! It’s time to break out your sandals, and those freshly manicured and pedicured digits, and embrace some some fun and fresh summer trends and shades.
The nail gurus over at Toast & Co gave us the low-down on what to expect for summer manicures and pedicures. Read on for our favourite nail trends for summer 2018/2019.
- Short nails.
Short but groomed nails are all the range for summer, pairing perfectly with a solid swipe of opaque, lustrous nail polish.
2. Classic red nails.
Red is a timeless color that will always have its place on and off the runways. It’s sexy, elegant, and high-energy, so it’s no surprise that red nail polish is one of the spring/summer 2018’s nail polish trends.
3. Nude nails.
You cannot go wrong with a pale pink, beige, or light taupe. These are timeless and natural hues, and we’re happy to see that nude nails are members of the summer 2018/2019 hot list.
4. Denim blues.
Match your mani to your summer cut-offs with muted blues that look perfectly worn-in.
5. Bright matte nail polish
A fun way to play with really bright, neon nail polish shades is to change up their finish. While we’re used to glossy brights, 2018 summer sees electrifying mattes.
6. Opaque shimmer nails
Add some shimmer without overwhelming the senses. Quick and easy, yet glamorous, nails. Yes please!
7. Nude and black
Nude (or white) and black is a nail combination that is becoming as ubiquitous as the French manicure. As part of spring/summer 2018 nail art trends, it’s all about nude/white nails with thin black lines for accent.
8. Colourful stripes
Although the runways saw a lot of black stripes, colourful stripes and French manicures in bright hues are having their moment in the sun this summer.
9. Neon nails
Expect punchy neon nails everywhere throughout the summer.
