Summer Nails designs for 2023

It’s summer! Time to break out of your typical mani routine and shake it up with one of the best summer nail designs for 2023! The Barbicore trend has hot pink as this summer’s trendiest nail color, while the Hailey Bieber glazed donut trend will continue to keep shining all summer long. If bright colors and chrome nail designs are not for you, don't worry. You can opt for a more natural-looking mani with the Lip Gloss trend using barely there shades that look effortlessly chic and are the perfect mani for a chilled summer.

Summer Nail Colors you should try

Barbicore Pink


Pink isn’t just a color, it’s an attitude, and nothing screams summer like a bold bright pink. HOT pink is the IT color for summer 2023 with the highly anticipated Barbie movie coming out this summer, and we’re definitely not ashamed to jump on the Barbicore bandwagon. The variety of playful pink shades is endless and the nail art options of flowers, swirls, polka-dots, or using nail stickers can make for some very fun summer nail designs!

Pink Orchid - Gel Polish


Lip Gloss Nails



If you loved the clean girl nail aesthetic look from last year, then the lip gloss trend is perfect for you! This natural-looking mani has the perfect subtle gloss and shine, keeping your nails looking chic, polished, and glowing all summer long. We love this nail trend because it naturally enhances the beauty of every skin tone, and your nails will never clash with any outfit. Just like lip gloss, you will need to try all three of our new sheer shades to find your favorite, but you may love all three equally and have to have them all on rotation!

Les Sheers Collection - Chantilly Gel Polish


Viva Magenta! (Pantone color of the year)

Cranberry jam

The Pantone color of the year can have a wild effect on everything from fashion and home decor to even nail color trends! Viva Magenta was named the color of the year for 2023 and we couldn’t be happier with this color pick! Magenta is a sophisticated vibrant pink that’s energizing and empowering. It’s a shade that beautifully mixes red, pink, and purple tones for a shade that can be dramatic and cool. When you are tired of classic red but don’t want pink, try Magenta!

Glazed Donut Everything

If you thought the glazed donut trend was over, you thought wrong. The glazed donut trend made famous by Hailey Bieber is here to stay. This trend has taken on a life of its own and is still a top-nail trend for summer 2023. The glazed donut trend has so many color variations and chrome finishing effects, it makes it fun to experiment with different base colors. Giving your mani a truly one-of-a-kind iridescent shine!

Pearlescence and Fleur Bleue - Gel Polish


Barely-there French

French manicure

This summer lighten up your French manicure with a barely there French, also known as the Skinny French, this is where you paint a very thin color at the tip of your nail. Sometimes less is more, and for summer we tend to agree. You can still show your mani personality by painting your Frencie your favorite summer color or alternating colors on the tips for a fun rainbow Frenchie.
