Why Orange for Summer Nails?

Orange is a beautiful cheerful summer color that just happens to work perfectly with tanned or naturally darker skin tones. It’s the perfect way to elevate your summer tan and make your nails really pop. With orange nail polish, you have plenty of options to choose from in different shades, that will allow you to go as bold or as soft as you want with the final result.

Orange is also a popular choice for vacation tropical nails or beach nails, as it reflects the colors of the sunset, but that doesn’t mean you can’t choose it for your everyday look. With a pretty pastel orange shade, you can create a sophisticated and neutral manicure that will take you through the whole summer, and is also a great look for your work manicure.

On the other hand, if you really want to make a statement and get nails that stand out from the crowd, choose neon shades of orange with simple nail art, to create a manicure that doesn’t need much to speak volumes!
