    Let’s start off the summer nail party with the prettiest claws in the bunch. Coral summer nails are the perfect claws to be sporting poolside with a refreshing drink in hand. We suggest going for coffin-shaped nails to pair with your coral summer nails. We love the bold shape paired with the bold color. You are sure to stand out at your next pool party with these bad boys, especially if you add an accent glitter nail.

    Before we jump into any more summer orange nail designs, we want to make sure you are looking for the right thing. Below is a compiled chart of the best summer orange nail shades for each skin tone – we’ve got your nails and your back, girls; thank us later.

    Skin Tones Summer Orange Nail Designs Shades
    Warm Skin Tones If you have warm undertones (yellow, peachy, or golden tones), you may find that warm shades of orange complement your skin well. Consider shades like pumpkin, terracotta, or coral.
    Cool Skin Tones For those with cool undertones (pink or blue tones), you might want to lean towards cooler shades of orange, such as peach or apricot.
    Neutral Skin Tones If you have neutral undertones (a mix of warm and cool tones), you have the flexibility to experiment with both warm and cool shades of orange. Tangerine or a soft, muted orange may work well.
    Dark Skin Tones Darker skin tones can generally carry bold and vibrant shades of orange effectively. Deep, rich oranges like burnt orange or rust can be particularly striking.
    Light Skin Tones Lighter skin tones may look great in lighter shades of orange, such as pastel or sherbet orange. These tones can create a subtle and elegant look.

    Peach Summer Nails

    Feeling peachy? These peachy keen summer nails are a go-to if you want to sport the ultimate summer orange nail designs this hot season. The yummy peach shade combined with the glitter polish is what summer dreams are made of. We can just picture you sipping a pina colada on the beach with these beautiful claws.

    Bright Orange Summer Nails

    Go bright or go home! These bright orange summer nails scream summer, and what could be more fitting than that for summer nails? The bright orange paired with the beautiful multi-colored accent nails really does it for us. The accent nails help to tone down the brightness ever so slightly while ensuring it’s still jaw-dropping as all the colors complement one another beautifully – just like you and this manicure!

    Also, before you move on to the next manicure, we want to remind you not to forget about nail care! To ensure your bright orange nails stay looking fabulous all summer long, it’s important to take care of them. Keep them hydrated by regularly applying cuticle oil and moisturizing hand cream. Avoid using your nails as tools to prevent chipping or breaking. And don’t forget to protect your manicure with a top coat for added durability.

    Orange Creamsicle Nails

    If an orange creamsicle is your go-to cool-down hack during the summer, these orange creamsicle nails are going to be your new go-to sweet treat. The pale orange is perfect for keeping things light during the hot months. We think pairing this sweet orange shade with an almond nail shape is a recipe for perfection. If you like the look of these, you’ll also probably like light orange nails.

    Zohna Tip
