The Nail Polish Colours Everyone Will Be Wearing This Summer

It’s been a strange year. We’ve been living in unprecedented times and suddenly our worlds were flipped upside down and our lives became revolved around our sweatpants, Netflix, Zoom calls and virtual parties. We don’t miss the virtual parties. As we begin to grasp a sense of normality again, we’re only too eager to shake off our now ragged and worn sweatpants and swap them for something a little chicer, colourful and uplifting. Real clothes! Dresses! Skirts!

Never have we been so excited to delve back into our summer wardrobes and house painting done with the help of house painting Sydney. We can clutch onto the most colourful and garish patterns we own. Injecting colour and happiness back into both our wardrobes and our lives. And the (real life, not virtual) party doesn’t end there. Painting our nails ready for an evening out with our girlfriends never felt so novel, but we can’t get enough, and with the help of Earthy Nails, we’ve got the must-have colours for summertime. 

Whether it’s your back-to-office look, tropical hues to bring the beach home, or something a little subtler, vegan-friendly brand, Earthy Nails, will ensure your talons look suitably stylish for the season ahead.

Whilst you might think of veganism as something that largely relates to food, you might be surprised to learn that cosmetics can also include animal ingredients. It’s not uncommon to find carmine, keratine and shellac in your favourite nail polishes and lippies, but thanks to the rise in veganism and cruelty-free living, there are now lots of cruelty-free alternatives available. 

That’s where Earthy Nails and their range of natural origin nail- polishes come in! Using bio-sourced materials and sustainable packaging (including super cute bamboo caps!), Earthy Nails are an animal and earth-friendly product with a goal to minimise their impact on the planet without compromising on quality. 

If you want to achieve that salon-worthy shine, their range of beautiful nudes, pinks, reds and brights will have your nails looking just fabulous in no time. Here are our top picks from the range… 

Coral Reefso we might not be able to travel to any far-flung destinations just yet, but we can keep dreaming and feel as if we’re sipping cocktails on a white sandy beach with this striking shade of coral. This tan-enhancing shades looks simply beautiful teamed with a crisp white dress and sandals for an easy-breezy summer look. 

Passion Red date nights are back on the cards, and this bold shade of red is sure to reignite some serious passion back into your life. Team with a red lip, gold jewellery and relaxed tailoring for the perfect day to night look. 

Moody Nude if you prefer a more minimalist approach when it comes to your nails, then Moody Nude is the shade for you. A ‘your nails but better’ natural shade that’s suitable for all occasions whether it’s back to the office or post-work drinks. If you want to try something new, why not team with a bolder shade for a colour block effect? 

Polar White white nails are set to continue this summer as one of the hottest nail trends! Rock the white nails on their own or use a base to get crafty with a nail pen and some simple designs! If you’re not so great at the artwork (raises hand) then perhaps try something simple but effective like a polka dot! You can’t go wrong with a polka dot. 

Pink Orchid – you can never have a dull day with bright pink barbie-inspired nails! For ultimate summer vibes, this Pink Orchid shade is simply perfect. A bright pop of colour is oh-so needed after a long winter, and this is just the ticket. 

Maya’s Rose – if you want to go for the pink nail look but you’re after something a little lighter and less vibrant, this beautiful shade of pale pink is perfect. Or why not get creative and combine both pinks to create a stylish ombré effect? And don’t forget, for that glossy salon look, to purchase your base coat and a top coat too!

With our nails freshly painted, the YCB team are feeling ready to embrace the summertime and get back into the city!
