8 Trending Nail Polish Colors To Wear On Repeat This Summer

The breezy new WFH dress hanging in your closet, coupled with the fact that we're closing in on Memorial Day weekend, is proof enough that summer is well on its way. Even in quarantine, we're riding this warm-weather high with flip flops on our feet and a stack of colorful bracelets on one wrist — dangling down to the fresh, glossy manicure on our fingernails.

From a sun-kissed take on a glitter manicure to a lilac polish that might be even prettier than its flower counterpart, we've compiled 2020's hottest summer nail polish shades. Order them all — or just your favorite few bottles — right now, and look forward to trying a new nail shade every week from June to August.

We’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. 

Lilac Pink

Olive & June, L.A.'s trendy nail-care brand, just launched their summer polish collection, a collaboration with beauty influencer Nabela. All seven brand-new bottles are bright and have uplifting shade names to match, like this opaque pink-purple blend called Fierce & Loving.

Golden Bronze

Like a dewy body-bronzing oil in nail polish form, Essie's brand-new metallic gold shade is faintly shimmery and sun-kissed. It's almost like the perfect airbrushed spray tan for your nails — minus the telltale color rub-off on the collar of your white T-shirt.

Creamy Peach

"This color is basically summer in a bottle," says nail pro Skyy Hadley. "Its beautiful peach shade looks amazing on all skin tones." Plus, because it's a full-coverage creamy formula, it gives your nails a glossy peach-tinted veil in one to two coats.

Baby Pink

A light-pink manicure feels so right for this time of year — it's essentially the nail polish version of a quick refresh between your trendy daisy art and rainbow quarantine manicure. "Everyone needs a grab-and-go neutral sheer polish," says nail pro Michelle Saunders. That's precisely why we're wearing all of OPI's bridal-inspired neutrals — like this pale pink — on repeat.

Confetti Glitter

While we're celebrating birthdays and graduations via Zoom, we're loving Essie's silver confetti polish in Congrats. Hadley tells us that this shade in particular is kind of like the good vibes bottled up. "The multi-colored confetti makes your nails look so happy," she says.

Cherry Red

Nail pro Nadine Abramcyk tells us that we'll likely be seeing a color shift from the pastels and neutrals to bright red pre-summer. "I think it's because a classic red mani looks so good in the sun," she says. "This shade in particular is our best-selling cherry — and everyone loves it this time of year."

Metallic Fuchsia

Smith & Cult's top-rated shade combines two of the summer's staple trends — metallic and neon — in one gorgeous gold-capped glass bottle. Nail pro Emi Kudo tells us that the key to achieving an understated holographic mani is using a sheer, buildable polish with super-fine flecks of glitter, so the end result reads as a soft-glow shimmer.

Stone Blue

This soft blue feels perfect in the spring to summer transition because it's a little brighter than pastel, but more muted than electric neon. Moreover, brand founder Abramcyk tell us that the cool undertones in this shade make it just about universally flattering on everyone who tries it on.
