    Summer means sunshine, tan lines, and new nail trends! This bright season calls for nails that demand attention. Discover the latest nail designs, then recreate them as pictured. Or, update them with your own unique flair!

    1. Summer Nail Trends - Opaque Nails


      Opaque nails are on trend no matter what summer shade you choose. For best results, reach past the sheers and instead choose a color that will give you full coverage. We love using neon shades to achieve this look!

      Once you select your shade, apply three even coats letting each one dry before adding the next, and voila! Your nails will shine boldly through those long summer days.

      (Hint hint: bold new neon shades coming soon!)

    2. Summer Nail Trends - Matte Animal Print


      Show off your inner wild child with matte animal print nail art and a pop of jewel-toned color. This cheetah print design adds unexpected flair when paired with a contrasting shade such as Chopstix and Stones. You can take the entire look to the next level when you make it matte!

      Get the look:

      To recreate this jungle-inspired design, use Coconuts over OPI as your base, add animal print details with Black Onyx, then top with an OPI Matte Top Coat to finish.

    3. Summer Nail Trends - Zebra Print


      You can't change a tiger's stripes, but Zebras don't mind a bit of color! Bring some summer fun to this sophisticated look with accent shades peeking between black and white stripes.

      Start with Alpine Snow on all nails, then choose a few to add Zebra stripes to using Black Onyx. Then, add your favorite OPI shades like as We Seafood and Eat It as feature colors. Now you're ready for the next summer beach bash, you party animal, you.
