Summer is officially in full swing, and with it, all of the bright colors imaginable. Meaning? It’s definitely time to think about a neon manicure — one that’s just as bold as your favorite bikini or sundress. Even those who love black nail polish all year round can get behind a vivid rainbow of fingertips, especially if it means sunshine, the beach, and ice cream. Ahead, check out some ideas for your next summer mani — you’ll want to hit the salon in no time.

Get sparkly all year long by combining a metallic hue with a bold coat.

2. Put pineapples on your nails.

No, seriously — how cute are these little thumbs?!

3. Mix n match.


Pink and blue go great together.

4. Glow crazy.

Glow-in-the-dark nails…who would have thunk it?!

5. Accent it up.

Stay bright with a plain coat on all your fingers — except for your accent nail, that is.

6. Geometric for the win.

8. Or if unicorns are more your thing…

Whatever your mythical creature of choice is, there’s a nail art option for you.

9. Show off your pride all summer long.

Rainbows for days!

10. Don’t forget your toes.


And put your accent nail on your big toe, of course.

11. Mellow out with yellow.


Although, if we’re being honest, this yellow is anything but mellow — and we like it that way.

12. Ombré isn’t just for hair.


Get your nails in on the trend too!

13. When in doubt, always add glitter.

It’s a good rule of thumb for just about anything.
