Summer is the season of warmth, sun, and rest. At this time of year, you want lightness and ease in everything, and manicures in particular. At the same time, the summer atmosphere inspires beauty experiments, so you can implement interesting nail designs.
Trendsetters predict that the focus in the field of nail art will be on natural beauty. At the same time, everything new will be in fashion—something that will help expand the usual beauty frames. So let’s consider the key trends that will be relevant in the upcoming warm season.
Fashion trends and novelties in manicure for the summer of 2024
The trend of this summer season will be natural. Everything, from the shape to the choice of shade of the coating, will be subject to this trend. Fashionistas will prefer oval and almond-shaped shapes. Muted shades of mint, green, lavender, pink, and blue will be popular.
As for the length, ultra-short nails to the very pads will give way to a short length. But this does not mean that the elongated ballerina or stilettos will be completely forgotten. If we are talking about festive nail art, then here you can give free rein to your imagination. The main thing is that the design is appropriate and can be combined with other elements of the chosen style.

Another “chip”: nail masters predict a departure from the habit of performing manicures “seasonally.”. Everything that helps reveal the chosen image and emphasize individuality and style will be in fashion. That is, you will be able to see everything on your nails, from classics to extravagance.
Those who want to be on the crest of a fashion wave can choose Peach Fuzz color varnish for coating. It is a velvety peach that gives a sense of comfort. Pantone Institute experts bet on this particular color for the new fashion season. At the same time, the following shades will be no less popular:
Rooibos Tea: concentrated red with woody notes.
Watercress is the color of living green.
Pastel lilac is a powdery lavender associated with sweet pastries.
Capri is a bright and noble blue that resembles the water of the sea.
A manicure inspired by impressionist paintings will be fashionable. At the same time, you do not need to be an artist to perform it. Choose colors that will harmonize with each other, take a thin brush, and perform on the nail plates up to a dozen careless strokes in random order. This decor has a fresh, stylish look while visually elongating the fingers.
Do not be afraid to experiment with shades; a New York-style manicure will be fashionable when a plain manicure is “diluted” with a contrasting shade on the little finger or thumb.
Fashionable Nail Shapes 2024
Pointed nails, stilettos, and ballerina shoes—these options will be in the background in the summer of 2024. The most popular shapes will be oval and almond. This type of nail polish is suitable for everyone. Hands with nails of this shape have a feminine, delicate, and elegant look. For those who want a more expressive solution, sawdust in the form of a beveled square can be offered.
Nail service masters call it “lipstick nails,” which means “lipstick nails.”. This trend has already appeared before, but somehow “didn’t catch on.”. On the catwalks during the current fashion season, the beveled square was noticed more than once. To emphasize the extravagance and outrageousness of the image, the emphasis was also often placed on the length.
As an everyday option, you can choose a soft square. This form of nailplate is very convenient and has a stylish, neat look. It is a combination of a classic square with slightly rounded corners.
A soft square is universal. It looks good on nails of different lengths and sizes, does not create discomfort when doing household chores, and at the same time perfectly combines with any style. Even though the square is a strict shape, thanks to the slight rounding, the nails have a feminine and aesthetic look.
Another trend is round nails. They are the embodiment of maximum naturalness. At the same time, there are no design restrictions: nail decor can be strict, minimalist, feminine, or fantasy.
Summer manicure 2024: trendy colors
There are many color options for summer manicures. Let’s focus on the key shades that will be in style.
Red, as usual, is one of the key ones. It is difficult to find a worthy replacement for this textbook color. You can experiment with shades of red, tomato, ruby, and cherry. For the manicure to have an organic look, choose a shade that will harmonize with your skin tone.
Brown suddenly appeared in the palette of summer shades. Shades of coffee, cocoa, and chocolate create a noble image. Manicure in brown and red tones looks spectacular both in monochrome and in two- and three-color compositions.
White can be used for more than just a French manicure. It has a spectacular look in combination with transparency, shimmering sparkles, and glitter.
This is a manicure “without decor.”. The nails look natural as if there is no coating on them. The shade of nude can vary according to your wishes, from nude to more transparent or saturated.
All dusted shades will be fashionable. They do not create accent spots in the image while complementing other elements well. It is worth noting that in the summer of 2024, all pearl shades will be in style. Gold and silver colors, “chrome” design, and manicures with a neon effect remain relevant.
A monochrome burgundy manicure is a classic that does not lose its relevance in the new season. This nail design looks stylish, fashionable, and restrained, making it suitable for nails of different lengths and shapes.
“Skittles Nails”: a rainbow on the nails
This design has an original look. You can combine 4-5 shades without worrying that it will turn out clumsily. For the manicure to have a restrained look, stick to the same color scheme when choosing different shades. If you want brightness and expressiveness, feel free to combine contrasting shades.
The blue color is one of the main trends of the season. You can try manicures in cobalt, ultramarine, or sapphire shades. You will like this way of self-expression.
What is summer without greenery? That’s right—none. Take a look at the deep shades of green.
the color of green moss;
Manicure in such a color palette gives the hands a noble and elegant look and is especially great when combined with tanned skin.
Nail design for summer 2024
For the manicure to have a spectacular look, it is necessary to take into account the shape of the nails, their length, and the shade of the skin. It is important to choose the right nail art technique to “get into the color.” At the same time, the manicure should match the image and style in general.
We offer the most popular nail plate design options that will emphasize your taste and attract the attention of others.
Summer manicure with flowers
You can emphasize the summer atmosphere of warmth and bright colors with the help of nail art with floral motifs. The decor can be done on accent nails or all—it all depends on the chosen design. Variants made in the stamping technique with the help of special stickers will look spectacular.
“Fruit” nail art
An absolute favorite of the new summer season will be a design with fruits. Cut into halves, pitahaya, mango, pineapple, lemon, orange, juicy berries—all this can be embodied on nail plates in different colors. Nail art will have a fresh summer look.
Sophisticated, multi-colored butterflies will make the image cute and romantic. The image can be made using the stamping technique or using special stencils. It is best to choose a matte gradient as the basis and use foil for nail decoration.
Manicure with sequins
The design with sequins, glitter, colored sequins, and foil is a great solution for an evening look. Shiny accents on the nails can be done on all fingers or some. A French manicure, in which the free edge is made with a mirror or gold rub, looks good.
Manicure with textures
Nails designed in the technique of mineral stones, jade, and emeralds are a universal option for everyday manicures. This design has a stylish, laconic, and inconspicuous look.
In the summer of 2024, the most fashionable color will be peach. It can be chosen as a shade to decorate the free edge of a jacket.
Manicure with small pearl beads
For the background, it is better to choose a neutral sand, pale pink, or milky color. Attach small pearl beads on top of the nail plates. Such nail art is not suitable for an everyday look; it is uncomfortable.
Foil with a web
For a festive look, you can use a combination of foil and spider web. For summer, the ideal choice will be a delicate matte background, on which foil prints are made in combination with small interweavings of cobwebs.
White nail art with a color accent
A manicure with a white coating in the summer season looks charming, especially with an accent design on one of the nails. As decor, you can choose images of ripe fruits, flowers, or geometric abstractions. Additional elements will dilute the “sterility” of white and make the manicure brighter and more expressive.
Nail Art: “Couple in love”
This is one of the hits of the upcoming season. The idea is to make images that complement each other on the thumbs. For example, the faces of lovers. You can also make halves of fruit that form a whole if you put your fingers together. There are many options.
Manicure in the style of “Negative Space”
A manicure with an “empty” space on the nail plate has a non-trivial and fresh look. You can beat the summer version by adding a design with images of flowers, plant motifs, butterflies, and peas.
This season’s stylish leopard manicure will be joined by the “under the turtle” trend. The pattern in black and brown with glitter accents is suitable as an every-day and evening option.
Manicure for Long Nails 2024
Long nails provide unlimited opportunities for creativity.
Glitter and shimmer: Shiny and shimmering particles remain in trend for more than one season. They give the nails expressiveness and make the manicure more elegant.
French manicure: Top options will be with a print on the tips, using colored gel polishes, and gold and silver rubbing.
Gradient manicure: smooth transitions that create a gradient effect and give nails a stylish look.
Drawings: Animalistic prints, divorces, abstraction, clouds, laconic geometry, and floristry will be in fashion.
Manicure “Cat’s Eye”: this technique creates a mysterious and attractive image.
Manicure for short Nails 2024
Short nails can be styled stylishly while creating a very comfortable manicure. The main emphasis is on natural beauty, grace, and elegance. Short and neat nails with a good coating will fit into any style.
Nail masters recommend choosing saturated and dark colors of gel polishes. At the same time, you should avoid complex designs, detailed prints, and drawings. A monochrome manicure can be supplemented with a small element: a small twig, a laconic geometric pattern, or a thin line.
If you want to perform a memorable nail design, you can resort to such techniques as French, ombre, and moon manicures. You can combine contrasting colors:
white and black;
beige and chocolate;
pale pink and purple.
Focus on your taste and don’t be afraid of bold experiments. Manicure is a great way to cheer yourself up and those around you.
