24 Pretty Summer Nail Ideas That You Will Love
Sorry for the recent lack of regular posts, I’ve been dealing with some personal issues and they’ve just taken over. As they do! Hopefully, I’ll be back to my normal posting schedule soon.
On to these exciting and pretty Summer nail ideas. After my Spring nail ideas were so popular, I just had to share with you some of the best ideas for your nails this Summer. I know it’s not yet summer.
Here in the UK, it feels more like winter, we’ve had strong winds and even hail! Yup hail in May! But that’s no reason not to get into the summer spirit, I mean summer will eventually come, won’t it?!
I’ve put together some of the most creative nail designs that are trending for this season. Summer is all about brighter and longer days, and these nails depict that! They are bright, they are colourful and they are plain and simple fun!
1. Summer Gingham Nails
Starting off this blog post with these cute and chic gingham nails. Easy to pull off, yet so effective. And if gingham is your thing, swap up the colours and these nails will pass for any season and occasion!
2. Pink Dreams
Beautiful sunsets with pink skies and glistening stars. There’s nothing that sums up the summer more than long beautiful nights spent watching the sky change colours!
The little gold detail on these nails ties up the look beautifully giving the nails so much added sparkle and fun!
Match your eyeshadow to your nails with these pink eyeshadow looks!
3. Yellow sunflowers
These sunflower nails overlap with spring, but does anyone really care? They’re beautiful, and elegant and will get you out of your comfort zone when recreating them!
4. Pineapple Fun
While these nails have a bit more detail and will require a more steady hand, I think they’re well worth the effort, don’t you?
Although pineapples are available all year round, they still equal summertime. Add some gorgeous gold stones and pretty leaves to complete the look!

Beautiful for winter and summer they are classics that are timeless!
7. Rainbow French Mani
Love a french mani but want to spruce it up a little? Add some rainbow tips for extra fun and colour!

Aqua isn’t my usual go-to colour, but these nails give the colour a whole new meaning. Add a little sparkle to give them some extra wow factor.
9. Ocean Waves
Love the ocean? Then marbelised nails are for you! They look like the waves of the ocean crashing on the beach. A work of art indeed, they remind me a lot of a Monet painting!
10. Ombre Rainbows
Ombre nails are all the rage at the moment. Spice yours up with a rainbow gradient of all the colours of summer!
11. Bright Leopard Nails
A leopard doesn’t change its spots, but you can. Add some summer colours to the classic leopard print.
12. Colourful Clouds
Let your creativity loose and go for some bold splatters in rich bright shades. This nail look is one you can’t mess up and it’s fun too!
13. I See, Ice Cream
Who doesn’t love ice cream on a hot summer day? Bring your favourite flavours to your nails to get in the full summer spirit!
14. Shell Shards
One of the most beautiful nails yet! Inspired by seashells, use shimmery shell pieces to get the full look. Try it out with any colour, and my bet is it will look just as fab!
15. Candy Floss
For me, candy floss brings back memories of summer evenings spent at the funfair going on all the rides and buying delicious candy floss. I have since acquired a more sophisticated taste, but those memories are some of the best!
Bring the candy floss to your nails with these candy floss-inspired nails.
16. Printed French Manicure
We can never seem to get enough of the french mani and fun prints. Why not combine the two with this print-inspired french mani?
17. Candy Swirls
Get your favourite candy swirl lollipop on your nails. You may need to remind yourself that your nails won’t taste quite as sweet as your favourite treat!
These nails would be my kid’s favourite choice! Well, at least my 2-year-olds. Many of us grew up with Elmer the Elephant and I’m sure I’m not the only one with fond memories!
Keep those memories alive with these Elmer-inspired nails. With their bright happy colours, they are perfect for summertime!
19. Two-Toned Pink Gold Leaf
Can’t decide on which shade of pink? You don’t have to, combine both shades to create these gorgeous nails. Add some gold and silver to complete the look and sophistication!
