It’s fun to switch up your nail colors as the weather gets warmer and mix in some bright nails. Winter’s darker shades of red, navy, and black polish are gone. You served us well. Let’s welcome spring and summer’s bright and bold colors. Shine bright!
Even though you can wear dark colors in warmer months and bright colors in colder months, there is something about having a bold, bright-colored manicure that screams summer. Bright colors make you feel warm and confident. Aren’t we all in need of that right now?
Of course, bright nails can also be a power move during the colder months. It all depends on the base color you’re using! You’ll see plenty of examples for every season below.
From bright nails in general to more specific patterns and even neon nails, there are tons of fun, summery options. Today I’m sharing my favorite bright nails for inspiration!
