Best Summer Nail Colors for 2018
From classic red to metallic copper, discover the latest trends in natural, gel and acrylic nail colors!
Nothing looks better than white nails on sun-kissed tan skin! It’s a great way to keep things neutral without opting for same old, boring black. Shades of white nail paint with a hint of shimmer or a pearlescent finish are popular nail colors for summer. Paint them on your fingers and toes this summer and look beach-ready!
2. Pale Pink
Subtle, sophisticated and a great alternative to nude color nails, pale pinks are the perfect everyday summer nail colors! The top pale pink nail polish shades for this season are blush pink, nude pink and cotton candy pink. These light pink nails would also be lovely for the workplace and on brides on their big day.
If you’re a lover of iridescent, colorful nails, you’re gonna be happy to know that holographic nail polish is one of the top summer nail colors for 2018! This popular trend in makeup has made its way to nails as well and I’m in love! They pick up on different colors depending on the light available and can be seen brightly from afar, making it the best nail color for photo shoots!
