Of all of the beauty trends we predicted for 2023, fruit-inspired nails were not on our list, but we’re now six months into the year, #fruitnails is having a moment on TikTok, and, all things considered, we’re not mad about it. After all, what says “summer” more than ripe, juicy berries and seedless watermelon? Fruity nails are a fun, easy way to add some color to your look that doesn’t require any kind of long-term commitment. Here are a few of our favorite takes on the trend that we’ve seen so far this season.
Keep it simple with this fresh take on a classic French manicure. The artist included a mix of cherries, berries, and citrus fruit along with a few clear rhinestones, which add a sparkly touch to a bright and colorful summer design.
As if the watermelons weren’t already mouthwatering enough, this artist added a few drops of a clear gel polish to create the illusion of condensation over this design. The result is a sparkly, textured look that captures the feeling of cutting into the first melons of the season.
We love the way this artist made use of the nails’ negative space by alternating strawberry and French manicure-inspired designs using the same colors. Together, they create a playful, yet cohesive look that’s sure to complement any summer outfit.
