Nail Polish Is Going Neon For Summer 2020

After you've eased into floral prints (both dresses and scrunchies) and swapped your heavy moisturizer for a lighter gel formula, a manicure is the next logical — not to mention mood-boosting — task to check off your pre-summer to-do list. We're DIY-ing our nails in this time of quarantine, and the polish color trends of the moment are the same all around: the brighter, the better.

Simply put, vibrant sunset orange or electric pink fingernails are just meant to be wrapped around an ice-cold margarita during Friday happy hour (albeit enjoyed on your own front porch or apartment terrace). So, to help you get to your blissed-out weekend vibes, we've rounded up the best neon nail polish shades we're loving right now. Ahead, find the exact bright polish you need to usher in the trendy summer vibes on your fingers and toes.

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. 

Blazing Orange

This versatile sunset orange from Essie's summer collection has quickly become a pro favorite, thanks to its flattering tinge of yellow undertones.

Sunshine Yellow

If you're looking to dip your fingers into yellow this summer, it makes sense to start with your manicure. L.A.'s trendy nail brand Olive & June just launched the most wearable, non-quite-neon sunshine shade.

Burnt Coral

If pastel tones feel too muted, a fiery opaque red-orange is sure to make a statement. "Pop Orange is a super fun mandarin shade," says nail pro and brand founder Jin Soon Choi. "It boldly announces you're feeling the warmer weather." This shade looks particularly amazing on darker skin tones.

Neon Pink

If you're going for bright pink, you can give your nails the designer treatment with a neon-bright DIY mani, courtesy of Mr. Christian Louboutin. "I love a bold, bright pink, and Christian Louboutin's Neoprene polish is just that," says nail pro Naomi Yasuda. "This color is super pigmented — borderline fluorescent on the nails." Plus, the pointy calligraphy-style bottle only adds to the appeal.

Electric Blue

One of our go-to drugstore nail-polish brands, Sally Hansen, recently teamed up with Jelly Belly candy company to bring us the summer manicure we never knew we needed: jelly-bean nails. All 11 shades in the collection are bright, fun, and quick-dry — but the Berry Blue shade has to be our favorite.

Poppy Red

Classic red polish gets a little brighter for summer 2020, stopping just shy of neon. "Chanel's Arancio Vibrante polish is my favorite red in the bright-polish category," says celebrity manicurist Michelle Saunders. "With gorgeous orange-y undertones, it makes a punchy statement that still feels sophisticated."

Bright Peach

According to Nails Inc. pro Thea Green, the fruity, vibrant shade we'll see trending this season is a spin on coral. "Our latest shade duo, Kiss My Peach, is the perfect hit of neon for your fingers," explains Green. What's more, it actually smells like peaches.

Vibrant Violet

Choi tells us that a fluorescent purple looks good on everyone. "YSL's Fuchsia Overnoir is my favorite sunny vacation polish," she says. "It brings a party to your fingernails and always gets compliments."

Yves Saint Laurent La Laque Couture, $, available at Yves Saint Laurent

Punchy Guava

Amazon is an authorized retailer of Smith & Cult nail polish, so this adorable, gold-capped bottle is an easy add to your next Prime order. Can't you just picture this cute pop of peachy-pink color wrapped around an ice-cold Paloma or glass of rosé?

Crisp White

"A bold white polish feels fresh for summer," says Saunders. "Choose a polish with opaque coverage, so it doesn't go too sheer." Most nail brands have a white offering, and Saunders tells us you can't go wrong with this classic: OPI's Alpine Snow.
