Quick trips to the beach are on everyone’s mind during the summer. So why not let the tropical escape influence your mani? We recommend bright nail polish colors like greens, pinks, and aquas to put you in a summer state of mind. Check out the Sheer Lust Exotic Nail Polish Collection for a great idea of the perfect shades of summer nail polish.


Fruit Nail Art

Nothing is more delicious than a bowl of strawberries or a slice of watermelon on a hot day. Why not show off the sweet taste of summer on your nails! Whether it is strawberry, pineapple, or watermelon nails, your fruit mani makes for a tasty summer treat.



Ombre nails using summer nail colors: pink and purple

Ombre is a great way to show off multiple favorite summer shades. Try combining similar tones for a more classic look; fade out Poudrée Pink with our deep purple China, two amazing summer nail polish colors. Or, if you want to be more bold, try using some metallic shades. We love the look of Summer Star yellow paired with metallic marmalade.


Nautical Theme

Nautical themed nails for summer

A classic nail art motif is to go nautical. Try using Sheer Lust’s Ivory as a base coat, and layer it with red and blue stripes for a classic nautical-themed mani. Or paint your nails with Exhale, a deep red, and contrast it with a blue and white striped accent nail.


Retro Mani

There is no better way to mix up your mani than with retro nail art. You can create your own floral print using summer nail polish colors like greens, reds, pinks, and purples for the perfect look. When mixing and matching so many different colors, be sure to stick with a neutral base color like white, black, or our Pinot Noir.
