Sorry to My Neutral Polish—Strawberry Nails Is Summer’s Cutest Manicure Trend By Far

It's no secret that I'm a big fan of neutral nail polish. I wear the same shades all year round as they go with everything in my wardrobe and always look chic. I do try and mix it up now and again, but it takes a lot for me to venture out of my comfort zone.

However, there is one particular nail trend that might have just convinced me to switch things up this summer. That's right, I'm talking about strawberry nails. I feel like fruity nail designs always come back in style in the warmer months, but there's something about strawberry nails that is just so cute. It seems that I'm not the only one who thinks so, as according to Google Trends, searches for strawberry nails are soaring.

The best bit about this trend is that it's actually really versatile. Sure, you can opt for strawberry nail art, but if you prefer a more minimal aesthetic, you can also try strawberry jelly nail shades or strawberry red French tips. Below, I've rounded up five of my favourite ways to wear the strawberry nail trend this summer, so keep on scrolling for all the inspo...
