If you are looking for a fun, trendy look that you can achieve at home or with a professional, skittles nails are perfect for you! 

It’s an easy-to-achieve mani full of summer nail colours- think bright colours, (like what you’d find in a skittles bag.) 

All it takes is three or more bright shades painted on different fingers. Try skittle nails with gel polish to achieve cute, bright nails that last a long time. 

3. Graphic Art Nails

Want to make a statement? Choose graphic nails!

Shapes, texts, logos, and textures- the options are endless. Since the nail art gets intricate in a small space, it is best to get these done by a professional nail artist. 

This nail design needs as much space as possible, so it looks best on long nails. Either grow out your nails or choose a long set of acrylic nails to make your graphic nails look great. 

4. Neon Nails

You can never, ever go wrong with a pop of neon in the Summer. The trick with neon nails is to choose a shade that compliments your skin tone. 

Deeper skin tones look great with all neon colours but especially colours like bright yellow, orange, and neon green, while fairer skin tones looks best with colours in the hot pink and purple realm.  

5. Glitter Nails

Low effort AND high impact? Yes, you read that right. If you are looking for stunning yet easy nails, glitter nails are an excellent option. 

You can apply a glitter topcoat over a nude or clear base or make a unique design with nail stickers and glitter polish. For extra impact, choose gold or multi-coloured glitter. 

For the eco-conscious, choose a polish with biodegradable glitter. 

6. Pastel Nails

Pastel polishes have always been a staple of summer nail trends, which hasn’t changed this year. Choose colours like periwinkle blue, bubblegum pink, or mint green. 

Paint each finger a different colour or choose your favourite for them all. For the adventurous, mix and match pastelshades and designs to create an abstract pastel pattern. It is guaranteed to be a showstopper!

7. Colour Block Nails

Colour block nails are quickly becoming a hot trend of 2021. The random pops of colour add a little extra to any outfit. Go the more elegant and subtle route and use natural and nude tones. 

Chevron colour block nails help elongate the nail and nail beds. Pick at least two of your favourite contrasting colours and experiment with different angles and designs. Use tape and nail stickers for clean lines.  

8. Floral Nails

Flowers outside mean it’s an excellent time to have flowers on your nails. Besides, who doesn’t love a good floral pattern? The options are endless when it comes to floral nail art ideas.

Summer is the perfect season to get ultra-creative with your nail art design. Look effortlessly cool and change it up by wearing a mix of designs, patterns, and textures on different fingers. 

Have fun, experiment, and combine geometric shapes mixed with stripes or polka dots and a glossy finish with a mattefinish. Or choose polishes from the same colour palette for a flattering look while mixing ombre with glitter.  

10. Neutral Nails

Pastel colours as one of the best Summer Nails Ideas for 2021

Neutral nails will never go out of style- especially after more than a year of lockdown!

Using a mix of warm-toned polishes gives your nails a fun summery feel without being too dull. If you love neutrals and nudes but want to branch out, try contrasting light and dark shades of brown or peach while creating a unique design. 

Or keep it simple and stick with solid nudes and neutrals for a classic and chic look.
