The Best New Summer Nail Colours |
Favourites 37

With spring/summer in full swing, we’re ditching darker nail colours in favour of something a little more sun-ready. From tomato reds to corals and lilacs, these mood-lifting shades will take you to more exotic climes…

Candy Pink

Marshmallow shades will pop perfectly against tanned skin. Just remember any imperfections will be highlighted, so precision is a must, and don’t forget a protective top coat.

Need A Vacation, £8.95 | Essie
Blush, £15 | Jinsoon
Peep, £16 | Marc Jacobs


Light Coral

The epitome of summer nail colours, this shade looks stunning on darker skin tones.

Tea Rose, £15 | Jinsoon
Chelsea Lane, £11 | Nails Inc.
Coral Canyon, £11 | Lauren B. Beauty


Pale Violet

A cooler take on traditional pink, keep soft lilac shades chic enough for the office by sticking to a neat nail shape – as far as we’re concerned, the ‘squoval’ never fails.

Fauntleroy, £19 | Smith & Cult
Chantilly Lace, £16 | Deborah Lippmann
Sweet Almond, £15 | Nails Inc.
