Must-Have Summer Nails

With summer upon us and the weather heating up, it's time to bring out those open-toed shoes and show off that pedicure - and while you're at it, a summer mani to match. When it comes to the perfect summer nails, the brighter the better is our motto. Beautiful bright nails can enhance your tan, giving your skin a gorgeous summer glow. One thing to keep in mind -- beach walks through the sand and regular dips in the pool or sea can definitely wreak havoc on that flawless summer mani, causing it to chip or peel. To ensure those summer nails last through your holiday and long, lazy days at the beach, opt for dip powder that can withstand the elements sans chips, lasting 2 weeks or more!

If you're looking for summer nail inspiration, we've got you covered. From bold and bright pinks and yellows that make your summer tan pop to fun florals and fruit-forward nail art, here are the must-have nail trends you need to try this summer.
