The coolest nail trends for summer are here

Published on 5th May 2017

Even when wearing a stylish outfit with flawless makeup, chipped nails can let your look down so quickly! Nail care and keeping up to date with current nail trends is such an easy way to add some polished glamour to your day. Taking the time and topping up your nails with a slick of on-trend colour before you dash out the door is key to making sure your look is pulled-together and sophisticated.

Here at Marshes we love a fabulous manicure so we’re picking our favourite nail looks for spring summer, as seen on top models on the catwalk. From simple DIYs you can copy at home to glamorous gels at Ria’s Nail & Brow Bar, it’s easy to nail your beauty look this season.

Aqua Aztec

One of our favourite nail looks of the season combines bright summer shades with edgy graphic lines! So cool, this look is perfect for sunny days or for bringing a smile to your face on grey afternoons. Get some handy false nails from Claire’s for a quick and easy nail update, just stick-and-go. What could be easier?

If you’re feeling artistic, head to Boots for nail art pens or adhesive tabs you can use to help you draw on patterns.

Inglot’s nail polish corrector pen makes cleaning up any shaky lines or mistakes simple, for a clean and stylish finish.

Experiment with different colours too to make this sun summer look your own. Why not stick on some gems for added sparkle?

Added Sparkle

Get ready for the weekend with an injection of shimmer. Glitter nails are everywhere right now and is a great look that’s full of fun and glamour. Go for gold and completely cover your nails in glitter or add an accent nail if you like to keep things more muted. When using glitter polish or loose spangles, seal it in with a good quality top coat to avoid rough feeling nails.


For a sleek and professional look, check out the glitter styles at Ria’s Nail & Brow Bar at Marshes.

We’re loving the pink glitter encrusted accent nail – a fresh feeling look that’s subtle enough for everyday.

Freaky French

The classic French mani gets a cool update this season with edgy asymmetric lines. This sophisticated look is easy to DIY at home as your lines don’t have to be super straight to pull it off. Pick a beautiful shade of nude for your base coat and using white (or any other shade you fancy!), swipe bold asymmetric tips across your nail from side to side.

Get creative with sparkle, different shades of nude and even some stick-on gems from Boots can be added to your ring finger for a glamorous accent nail.

Keep things fresh and simple with a glossy top coat to give your nails that sleek finish. This easier version of the French manicure is top of our lists for spring beauty ideas.
