Now that we’re deep into July, we’re ready to go into full summer mode and bust out bright colors, bold patterns, and fun accents that scream out-of-office. Nothing says, “Where’s the beach?” quite like neon nail polish. Geometric patterns, funky emoji-like designs, and in-your-face colors are here to stay this summer, so check out our favorite neon nail looks to rock in the dog days of the season.

1. Mixing Patterns: Why pick one pattern when you can choose 10?

2. Abstract Art: Small, simple lines and artful swatches of color can make a big impact.

3. Fun Florals: Add playful touches that embrace a more youthful look.

4. French Manicure: When you’re bored with the typical white French tips, this colorful twist on a classic will have all eyes on you.

5. Fruity: It wouldn’t be summer without covering your fingers in fruit designs, right?

6. Negative Space: For those who aren’t used to bright color, opting for a negative space mani can slowly ease you into the trend.

7. Holographic: Neon tones and holographic touches go together like peanut butter and jelly.

8. Melted: For the surrealist babe, choosing one shade and opting for a melted effect can be the right option.

9. Mixed With Pastels: Add a neon base to your pastel manicure.
