Call Your Manicurist—These Are the Only Nail Designs That Matter This Summer

There's nothing like a good mani.

Call Your Manicurist—These Are the Only Nail Designs That Matter This Summer

I'll be honest: I don't do my nails often. I usually keep them bare and add a polish here and there, but my nails stay simple for the better part of the year. But when summer rolls around, I immediately get in the mood to get playful and start to save a plethora of bright and fun manicure designs to my Instagram saved folder.

While summer may not be here yet, I'm already starting to think about which designs or colors I may want to try out. There are so many options out there—just a scroll on Instagram (and TikTok, with the nail transition videos) can lead to endless possibilities. For inspiration, I tapped through some of my favorite nail accounts and pinpointed the designs that I think will be perfect for the season ahead. Hint: They're all very fun, so be prepared to smile.

Take a look below and start envisioning these on your nails. You know I've already done it for all of the options.

I've seen so much fun jewelry trending. Why not take the same kitschy designs to your nails? 

A simple colorful swirl will make a statement if you want something bold that still features negative space.

Another nail-meets-fashion trend: checkerboard. Opt for the print in black and white for a more versatile look or feel free to play around with color.

Doesn't this just scream summer? Lauren actually DIY'd the strawberries onto her nails herself, so it's worth a shot to try your hand at it as well. (Or keep it to the professionals if you're like me and is a little too shaky.)

Prints and colors galore! If colorful is your vibe this summer, these are the nails to match. Choose your own color combos and save this for your next manicure appointment.

As we said, checkboard is trending. Create this design using nail tape, visit your local salon, or purchase Chillhouse's nail press-on if you want something quick but easy to remove.

It wouldn't be Hot Girl Summer without nails like these. As Y2K trends reemerge, I've seen the flame print makes its way back onto phone cases, sweatshirts, etc. You can add nails to that list.

Sometimes I don't want all my nails to be brightly colored, so this subtle daisy detail on two is perfect if you're on the same boat. Just pick a color of your choice along with a subtle design on the other nails. 

Shades of blue were seen all across the runway for summer, so these nails are perfect for the season ahead. Even looking at them reminds me of hitting the beach.

Ombré has never looked so good. It sounds like a dated nail trend, but when you add it as tips and mix in a vision of unique colors, it's basically art.

I'm not usually one for French tips, but seeing colorful tips on the rise is making me think otherwise.

Not for color this summer? Opt for a sleek design using negative space and your trusty black nail polish.

In our 2000s trend report, we noted that butterflies have made a comeback. (Did you see Dua Lipa at the Grammys?) If you're not willing to add the fun detail into clothes or accessories, I think it would make a solid addition to your summer manicure.

Who said pastels had to be for spring only? If muted tones are your vibe, mix and match your favorites on each nail to create a colorful but calming scene.

Found: The Best Bralettes for Women With Big Busts

Shopping for clothes can be challenging, no matter who you are or what you’re looking for. But if you have a bigger bust, the activity can feel like a real chore—especially where comfortable lingerie is concerned. You might have even ruled out bralettes altogether, deeming them insufficient in the support department. But we’re here to tell you that they do exist. To prove our point, we rounded up the best bralettes for big busts. While underwire bras will always offer serious support, sometimes you just want to be as comfortable as possible. So after combing through pages of customer reviews, we’ve discovered the bralettes anyone with a big bust will want to live in. Scroll down to shop them all below, and be sure to check out why women are raving about them.

"I've been trying to find a cute, supportive, affordable bralette for years. There is nothing more disappointing than looking at the cute ones and seeing only for cups A-C. This one answered my prayers! I’m a 36DD and the large is perfect, no side bulge, no double boob, and no uni-boob. Straps don’t dig in and I’m not going to end my day with red welts anywhere."—Reviewer

"These Lace Kiss Bralettes are 'just enough' without being too much. I'm a 34D, and these bralettes hold my breasts comfortably without being overbearing. The lace is very soft and comfortable too. Just as good as braless, only better!"—Reviewer

"I may never wear a 'real' bra again. This provides surprising support for a bralette - enough for daily hiking and mountain biking. Cute straps for tank tops, but full coverage enough that it sits nicely under T-shirts and nicer tops. Makes me look a size smaller without constricting. I wondered if it was too expensive for a basic bralette, but this bra is magic."—Reviewer

"I never thought I could wear a wireless bra, and historically it's been slim pickings for those who need smaller bands and larger cups. This bra is really a game-changer in that it keeps the girls in place and looking natural without an underwire digging into me. I prefer to not have molded cups, so I like this style."—Reviewer

"I have four of these bras. I first bought them for casual weekend wear thinking there wouldn't be enough support. It took zero time for me to get used to no underwire, and now I wear them to work every day. Plenty of support for me (36C), and very comfy. Pretty, too!"—Reviewer

"I wear a DD and am sick of underwire. I have tried several different non-underwire bras and this one is the best. I also love that it is not super expensive."—Reviewer

"Lightweight and comfortable. Had to try a couple sizes to get the right fit. 5'10", 200 pounds, 40C, and I had to go with 2X."—Reviewer

"To start off, this is the softest material I've ever had on a bra. I've never been able to wear a bra that's so soft and comfortable all day. I wear a 42DD, and it's so hard to find a bra that I don't want to take off as soon as I get home. If you're looking for something that'll make you forget you're even wearing a bra, I suggest this one a thousand times!"—Reviewer

"I was so excited when I discovered this bralette! I wear a 34DD, and everything else I tried on either fit in the band but was too small in the cup, or nearly fit in the cup while being many inches too large in the band. I bought the medium, and it was a perfect fit. It provides light support, and I can easily wear it under a tee in public."—Reviewer

"I'm a 32DD and went with a S/M, and it's stretchy enough to accommodate my larger chest. I'll definitely be ordering more."—Reviewer

"I wear this almost every day. If I had the option, I would never take it off. The cotton is so soft you forget you're wearing it. There isn't much support, but it also doesn't create a 'uniboob' either. It's nice, subtle support, and it doesn't crush my 32D bust."—Reviewer

"I usually wear 32C and ordered S for this one. It fits me well and looks pretty."—Reviewer

"I wear a 30E in Cleo underwire bras, and this fit true to size too. I hate wearing underwire bras for more than a few hours because I get bruises on my rib cage, so I have been trying to find a good bralette with an elastic band instead of an underwire and this one from Cleo has the most support."—Reviewer

"These bras are my new favorite!!! They're comfortable, lightly padded, and pretty!!! I'm a 34D, and I find them very supportive, considering they're a bralette. I've tried other brands, and these are by far the best. I highly recommend trying them."—Reviewer

"This is perfect! I was looking for something to wear around the house, a kind of bra that was more than wearing nothing but less than wearing a more structured bra. Pretty sure I could nap in this it’s so comfortable."—Reviewer

"'It's hard to find bras with large cup sizes and smaller relative band sizes—especially ones that don't have underwires and that still look pretty. This one qualifies on all counts."—Reviewer

"At this point, most of the reviews have captured the greatness that is the busty bralette… but I couldn't resist. I'm a 34DD/DDD and have ALWAYS had a difficult time finding bras: Either they're too expensive or just not attractive. The busty bralette is EVERYTHING. It's sexy, comfortable, affordable, and offers good coverage!"—Reviewer

"This bra is so comfortable you might feel guilty wearing it. Great for plunging dress options. Great for big busts. It was so comfortable I bought six. It's my go-to bra."—Reviewer

"I love the colors I got! These bras are so cute and comfortable, and will be perfect for summer when you want those bra-less days but don't have a small enough chest to let them fly free. ;) I'm a 36D, and the large fits great if you don't mind a little less coverage."—Reviewer

"My go-to bra: comfortable and holds my 40C well in the XL. Great for everyday wear at work and weekends."—Reviewer

"I'm a 34DDD and have worn athletic bras for years all the time with work, dress, and casual wear. Am a size 4 to 6, and 5'2". The straps are perfect; nice fit. Highly recommended."—Reviewer

"It's such a struggle to find a bralette that is meant for big boobs and this one is IT!! I love how soft and comfortable it is too. Currently throwing away all my old bralettes that either had no support or would suffocate me."—Reviewer

"I have bought numerous bralettes and had to return them because they don't fit, but these are AMAZING! And also amazing quality! I am a 34E and weigh 143 pounds and I bought a large and I am so happy! If you have big boobs this is the bralette for you!"—Reviewer

"I have been looking for a bralette for a while in a small band, large cup size. There are not many brands that offer wire-free bras in my size: 28F/FF. I read some reviews that said it runs small, so I figured I'd take a chance on it and I'm so glad I did! The band is cut small, so I would size up one band size. The cups are super stretchy so it is forgiving if you are between cup sizes."—Reviewer
