Holiday season is well underway, and we cannottt be more excited to pack our bags and get our tan on! But if you’re anything like us, then you’ve probably left a small yet important detail to the last minute. You know what we’re talking about… you’re peeking at them right now aren’t you? Don‘t worry, you’re definitely not the only one who’s left their nails looking a bit worse for wear… *sits on hands*. But, when you do eventually get round to popping into the salon for your nail fix, you’ll probably end up wasting valuable time trying to decide what sorta style you should go for. Choosing your nail style defintely warrants some serious contemplation, in fact, some of the girls in Supercuts HQ told us choosing a nail style was harder than picking a Uni… 👀 #Nailproblems
The easy option for us would be to signpost you to Insta, but with a ridiculously amount of #nailinspo posts being shared what seems like every minute of every day, you’d be there all night. Well, lucky for you we‘ve scrolled and scrolled our way through our feeds for you to find the very best nail trends for your impending holiday – and we promise you won’t be disappointed. From full-on five-a-day fruits (don’t ask, just scroll) to bright and bold neon, there is something for everyone.
Are you ready to see the trends you should be taking to your next Supercuts beauty appointment?
Yes? Then what’s stopping you? Get going! 👇
So, you’ve swapped out those pastels shades that are SO last year and are looking for something to make your nails pop this summer. Well, gurl haven’t we got just the thing for you! Fruit nail art! 🍉🍓 🍑🍒 Yep that’s right – your five a day is trending for your talons! It’s a super playful way to add a bit of character to your nails and the PERFECT accessory to any beach selfie. Even if you’re not jetting off somewhere tropical, with summer still going strong(ish) here in the UK, it’s the perfect time to join the fruit hype. It won’t break the bank either as our gel nails start from just £22.50, leaving you with more £££’s for sangrias by the pool (or fuel for your #staycation). If you’re itching to scroll down to see all the fruity nail inspo we’ve found for you, just be warned that some are a little more outrageous than others (but perf for someone who’s style is bold and bright) whilst others are just down right adorable.
*Warning: the following five-a-day may not keep the doctor away.
Nothing screams summer like slicing up a watermelon on a hot day. Keep it simple with an accent nail as the fruit focus.
Add some lime to your manicure and shake it all up!
Remix the half moon manicure trend by adding fruit near the cuticle. Cute!
Saved by the mani
Ready to take a trip down memory lane? We’re heading back to the 80s with this one. Memphis Milano is a style created by Milanese architects and designers, which we’re sure you’re all thinking ‘Okaaaay, good to know’ right now, but this does actually have something to do with our next nail trend. Most of you will recognise these bonkers shapes and squiggles from Saved By The Bell, so if you’re a fan from this era you will defo appreciate this preppy style. This design has actually found it’s way into homeware and fashion runways lately too, so it’s definitely a trend to watch out for. Check out the inspo below and see how you can bring these interesting shapes and patterns to your fingertips.
The beauty about these manicures is they work for everyone – even if you’re more of a neutral gal you can still switch it up by adding some swiss dots and small neon shapes.
With so many options for colour and shapes, why should any one nail be the same?!
A black holographic background makes the neon pop – and this look’s giving us some serious Saved by the Bell nostalgia.
Brighter the better
Festival season may have come and gone but you don’t have to say goodbye to those neon nails just yet. After all, they look fleeky AF wrapped around a cocktail (you can thank us for the Insta pic idea later). Our fave nail brand launched their new collection, OPI Neon, and to say we were buzzing around the office… is actually quite accurate. Whether you plan on lounging by the beach or partying the night away in Ibiza there’s a shade to match every mood in this collection. From lemon yellows, tasteful teals and fuchsia pinks you can practically create a sunset on your nails! Don’t just take our word for it though, check out the shades in action below.
Nothing shows off a tan like a neon nail and we love this subtle orange ombre effect.
Neon means no rules! Flamingo fuchsia on the right and lime green on the left is perfect for the indecisive queens out there.
If a complete neon manicure is a bit much for you why not opt for just the tips?
