In the last month alone, we've witnessed more neon nail looks while scrolling through Instagram than we have in the last year. For instance, just last week, a lava lamp-inspired manicure boasting bright orange accents went viral, and we were also introduced to "jelly nails," which features subtle hints of neon green.
That's right, folks: It appears that nude is out and neon is in this summer.
This theory was confirmed true when Pinterest shared its insights from July with Allure, which revealed that searches for "bright summer neon nails" are up a whopping 131 percent. "Nails are a fun way to incorporate some neon into your life, and Pinners agree," reads the press release.
What's more: The report shed light on specific neon nail-themed searches that are trending right now, including "neon ombré" (up 904 percent), "neon french tip" (up 583 percent), "neon rainbow" (up 515 percent), "neon marble" (up 311 percent), and lastly, "black and neon" (up 144 percent).
The great thing about this nail trend is there are endless ways to try it and make it your own. You can go full-blown bright on every finger, or, if you prefer a more low-key manicure, you can simply add a subtle accent to a few nails in your favorite neon shade.
There's no wrong or right way to get in on the neon nail trend, so go ahead and get creative, and if you're in need of some inspiration.
