I'm Swapping My Neutral Nails for This Classy Manicure Trend This Summer

When it comes to nails, summer can be a hard time for us neutral lovers. It seems that everyone opts for bright, bold manicures as soon as the weather gets warmer, and I totally get why you'd want to add a pop of colour to your look. However, if that's not your thing, then it can be hard to know what kind of nail design to go for. Luckily, this season there are so many classy manicure trends out there that look super fun while still remaining more minimal.

One trend that I've noticed more and more people searching for lately is baby pink nail designs. Baby pink nails are the perfect alternative to a neutral manicure this summer as they add a slight hint of colour without making you stray too far out of your comfort zone. Not only that, but in my opinion, this soft pink hue looks so elegant.

Don't believe me? I've spent the past few days looking at lots of baby pink nail designs and I've picked out some of my favourite manicure looks for you to try this summer. Whether you want to opt for a classic French tip, an ombré design or some cute nail art, there is something for everyone. So, keep on scrolling and don't forget to screenshot your favourite look to take on your next trip to the salon...
