Think slashes of bright colour: If you’re feeling the colourful rainbow vibes of summer, consider painting your fingertips with an array of vivid tones. Start off by polishing your fingernails with white polish, and then accent the nail polish with an explosion of bright colours. Abstract stripes and splashes of blue, violet, yellow and orange can instantly brighten your fingertips.

Turn to colourblocking: The look of long, gleaming talons accented with brilliant hues can immediately evoke party-ready vibes. Start off by creating a funky colourblocked effect, in the form of yellow, red, purple and blue designs. From diagonal shapes to funky rectangles, the look of colourblocked shapes is a perfect way to update your manicure.

Consider lavender and white colours: For a contemporary set of talons, accent your fingernails with asymmetrical white and pale purple geometric shapes. Meanwhile, the occasional black diamond or square can liven up your talons, with clear nail polish as a base coat.
