These Are the Most Popular Nail Polish Colors for Summer 2020

Which shade will you be wearing?

Never underestimate the power of a nail polish – not only is the act of painting your nails at home soothing on its own, but the right varnish shade can also instantly lift your mood. With summer in full swing, we are highlighting some of the best nail color trends of the season.

For Summer 2020, we’re gravitating towards a mix of soft, pastel colors and vivid hues reminiscent of elements of nature. From Dior‘s light yellow “Ready” to Chanel Beauty‘s mauve nail color in “Mirage,” we’re inspired by colors that make up breathtaking summer sunsets. For a punch of color, look no further than Smith & Cult‘s orange red nail polish in “Poppy Papi.” The vegan and eight-free formula (meaning no toluene, dibutyl phthalate, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, camphor, xylene, ethyl tosylamide and triphenyl phosphate) is one of the most popular nontoxic options on the market.

For a clean, minimal look, you can’t go wrong with Filipino beauty brand Sunnies Face‘s Play Paint in the ballet pink “Tulle.” If you prefer cooler shades, however, you might enjoy Nailberry‘s high-gloss polish in “Santorini.” The vibrant blue color is a dream in a bottle and brings to mind an idyllic seaside escape.
