Summer is a season that bursts with color. From bright colors blooming in our backyard to neon colors that are reminiscent of highlighters, there’s no bright or juicy color we don’t love. But this summer, we’re really embracing pastel hues and their fresh feel, especially when paired against a bronzed hand. There’s something sophisticated and elegant about a soft, pastel hue that we can’t seem to put a lacquered finger on. These eight pastel nail colors are sure to make your summer tan stand out just a little more.
