5 hottest summer nail trends to try

Looking for new nail art ideas for your next manicure? We checked in with one of Hong Kong’s hottest nail boutiques, Tinted, to find out what the latest summer nail trends are. Whether you’re into short, long, oval or square nails, there’s a nail art design for you:


Summer is in full bloom, so why not add some florals to your fingertips? This season, we’re seeing plenty of dainty floral accents that are sure to brighten up your days.


Forget about harsh lines – it’s all about the swirl this summer. Usually drawn by an expert nail artist on a clean and nude base colour, this allows the colour(s) of the swirls to really come through.

Black and white

You can never go wrong with black and white, as it’ll match all manner of summer #OOTDs. Play around with negative space or French tips to give your nail art a bit of breathing space.


Fill up on Vitamin C by adding some fruits to your nail art. The experts at Tinted are able to draw pretty much any fruit you desire – be it lemons, watermelons or even cherries!


Sure, Easter has passed, but we just can’t get over how pretty pastels are. This summer, add a bit of sparkle to your look with an accent nail in silver or gold.
