The 22 Best Summer Nail Colors of 2022
It’s hard to place this purple polish at first glance. It’s a touch brighter than lilac, but not as deep as royal purple and there’s an almost backlit fluorescence to it. Though the color itself is ambiguous, the bold finish is inarguably impactful.
A brilliant magenta just might be our summer 2022 shade. It’s the rare color that looks just as good on your fingertips as it does on your toes.
At once calming and bewitching, a periwinkle blue never fails to put us in a good mood.
Fact: Orly is our go-to for brights and neons because the shades are always opaque, never streaky and they dry quickly. A favorite this summer? This fluorescent pink, which brightens up our sallow winter skin instantly.
For a more muted summer mani shade, try an earthy nude. This warm neutral looks a bit richer or brighter depending on the light. Wear it now and wear it later.
This creamy mint is a refreshing shade to wear during those transitional months between spring and summer.
For our pink loyalists out there, you’ll love this pretty pastel hue that just makes your nails look polished and sweet (like the dessert it’s named after).
Ahh, there is nothing quite as clean and crisp as a bright white mani (or pedi). This ultra-shiny formula from Deborah Lippman has a cushiony finish.
This vibrant red was made for strappy sandals and white caftans. No matter how pale, tan or dark your skin is, the pigmented hue will pop against your complexion.
Calling all cool girls: This chartreuse polish is a beautiful blend of yellow and green tones and is delightfully unexpected in a sea of predictable manis.
If you’re looking for a jolt of energy, give this bubblegum pink a try. Better yet, pair it with a soft mint or milky blue shade and take the guesswork out of coordinating your next mani-pedi.
