If we know Libra’s, we know you’ve got an itch for something – and we’re not just talking about a nail colour.

This summer, the sun’s energy will be opening up your mind and making you want to try new things. Go for it! Use your imagination and don’t be afraid of the unknown. Reflect on your desire to follow your dreams with a fresh and creative nail colour, like a romantic, opalescent pearl. It’s a neutral colour but also has a unique shimmer, a little reminder to step out of your comfort zone.

Our pensive Scorpio, you tend to be a deep thinker – and that’s only going to intensify this summer. You are really getting in touch with your emotions this month and doing some work on yourself. With purple being the colour of intuition, you should lean into your introspection and try a warm plum this summer.

Reconnecting with nature is a great way to ground yourself, and matching the colour of the flowers is a sweet homage to enjoying your natural surroundings. We think you’ll blossom too!


Looks like Sagittarius will be experiencing some summer lovin’ this season. Whether it’s a romantic partner, reconnecting with friends, or embracing self-love, relationships are at the forefront of your mind this summer.

Wit mercury elevating your need to explore some heart-to-heart connections, why not send some of that loving energy out into the world with some earthy green nails to match your heart chakra. And who knows, maybe that fresh manicure will attract that special someone.


You should be feeling pretty balanced right now Capricorn. Everything is smooth sailing. You are getting some good work done in your career and you are also fitting in some well deserved down time.

With Saturn and Jupiter working together this month, you can expect a burst of optimism. So colourful nails are just the thing to emphasise this fun energy and add a little something extra to your everyday life.


Remember who you are Aquarius. As an imaginative air sign, your head is always up in the clouds daydreaming and thinking up new ideas. During this busy time where your mind is being pulled in all directions, why not find a way to ground yourself and remember who you are.

Try painting your nails a calming light blue. You can even throw in some cute cloud designs if you are feeling really creative. With all the new perspectives being thrown at you by the moon and Pluto, try not to lose yourself. Look down at those summer nails and be happy in your own shoes.
