Embrace summer with open arms (or hands) by painting your nails a fun, vibrant color. Whether you pick a cheerful shade that matches your swimsuit, the same blue as the oceans you want to swim in or a coral that mimics a summer sunset, this is the season for all eyes to be on your nails. Find all our favorite vacation-ready manicure shades below.

Essie’s summer 2022 collection has something for everyone, from refined nudes to funky shades of green and purple (keep reading to see those). But we can’t imagine getting through summer without at least one hot pink manicure. This electric hue has a flattering cream finish and blue undertones that pop on every skin tone.
