Summer is officially here! To me, there's something exciting about a new season being an opportunity to refresh everything from my wardrobe to my skincare routine to my nail colors.
Lately, I've been a nude or pink nail girly — but summer is the time of year when I feel like I need to let loose and spring for a pop of color.
To learn more about all things summer nails, I reached out to two nail professionals to find out which nail trends they predict will be everywhere for summer 2023 — plus any others they think are already outdated.
Here are the top seven nail trends they believe will be everywhere this summer.
1. A twist on the classic French manicure
Trenna highlighted variations that she's seeing more and more: "Beyond a classic French with the white tip, there's also colorful French (where each tip is a different color), or a gradient French, where the color goes from light to dark or dark to light depending on what the client wants," Trenna explained.
Trenna also pointed to DIY French manicures as typically being a great starting point for anyone who wants to do their nails at home.
"Most people have a beauty blender or sponge in their makeup kit. Paint your nail with the base color you'd like first and let that dry," she said.
