WELCOME! and happy saturday!

Well, Hello!! This week’s post is the 3rd in our “Summer Trends Series”. We are going to be talking all about the Nail Trends for the summer! It has definitely been a little tough here in San Diego to embrace all the Summer Trends when it is raining! But, writing it all definitely makes me so excited for the hotter weather coming up.

As you can see from the title, the biggest themes we will see this summer are Neutrals, Neons and Glitters! Our nail stylist here at the salon was a lot of help for this week’s post. Meredith is amazing at what she does and all of the photos and videos in this particular post were done by her! You can check her out [button shape=”square” size=”mini” float=”none” href=”/meredith” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover”]here[/button].


What are “Neutral” nails? They consist of any color that is considered a neutral. We’re talking nudes, tans, whites, greys, browns, blacks, etc… To really show you what I am talking about here are some great examples of the color scheme we are talking about:

So who are these great for?

Uh, ANYONE! Neutrals are great because they really go with any skin tone and any style. I personally love the neutrals because they go with anything and everything and can be great for any occasion without going over the top.

Here are some real life examples of neutral nails:

Neon nails haven’t been all that common lately, but they look so great! They are an instant conversational piece or pop of color. Neons are pretty much available in any color and they look especially great in summer of course!

So who are these great for?

The more daring and edgy nail gals. They are very bright and beautiful so if you can rock them, then these are for you! They add to every outfit and look great with those tan lines 😉 They can really accentuate any skin tone and you will be able to see the differences in each color in the examples below…

Here are some nifty neon nails done by Meredith:

Lastly, let us talk about glitters. If you are a girl, you probably love glitter, even if you want to pretend you don’t. It’s just a natural love in the female mind! Whether it is bright pink, red or even black, glitters are a great way to add a girly touch to your look. Even the most edgy of styles can get away with a little glitter!

Look at this shine!!!

So who are these great for?

I think the glitters also falls under a “just about anyone” category! The great thing about the glitter is that you can do all of your nails or just one, or even just a part of one nail! There are so many different ways to rock this trend, which is why it really can be great on anyone! Take a peek at some of these examples below:
