Although the jury is still out on whether we will be able to go on vacation this summer, there is nothing to prevent us from enjoying a little color and dynamism in our looks and the selection of what to wear. This is also true of manicures, which, in view of trends observed in the work of major nail artists and on the hands of influencers, will be more energized than ever this summer. First up in the spotlight, the go-to inspiration for many will be multicolored nails, which offer a cheerful contrast in the wake of a particularly difficult spring.
An explosion of matte colors
Don't hesitate to use the most vibrant shades that you can find in your vanity case, but in matte versions, to create a rainbow of colors, as in this look by the the Portland Finger Bang Division (@fingerbangportland). Note the added graphic pattern in white, which plays on contrasts.
A colorful and fruity manicure
Taryn VanAlfen (@taryns.nails) has created this fruity alternative to classic multicolored nails with three nails in salmon pink and two with vibrant fruit motifs, notably showing watermelons and lemons, which add an extra tang to this look.
Renowned nail artist Tom Bachik (@tombachik) has created this optimistic array of pastels for the summer season. The multicolored manicure extends from lilac to pale blue with a transition through pink and yellow. A look that is easy to replicate at home.
A glossy rainbow
Fashionable nail artist Mei Kawajiri (@nailsbymei) has posted this multicolored manicure in glossy candy colors. It is a look that she created while in lockdown in New York, which is why it announces "I Love NY."
More disceet but still multicolored
Graphic, colorful and at the same time discreet... Artist Hang Nguyen (@thehangedit) has decorated each finger with its own deconstructed and asymmetric rainbow. It is a nail-art look that demands meticulous attention and precision, but one which can nonetheless be reproduced at home.
