Summer Manicures You Need to Try Before the Season Ends

Our collections range from outspoken, vibrant shades to quiet, pastels for a whole spectrum of possible looks. To see some of our favorite Medusa looks, browse our Instagram.  


Here’s some trends to put your own spin on for the last few weeks of summer:


Glitter Summer Manicures

While the sun is still beaming, you might as well take advantage of it – by adding some sparkle. The summer sunshine will amplify any glitter look for a perfectly in-season manicure. No matter what shape or size your client’s nails are – glitter is a universal fit for everyone. And the best part about glitter? It works flawlessly on with virtually any color or design – just check out these looks from NailPro. With Medusa gels, you can let your artistic creativity flow and your client shine with encapsulated designs using iridescent glitter featured with Larmes de Medusa nail foundation that works both as a builder and gel-last color.


This one-nail sparkle look was made using the Larmes de Medusa’s Foundation collection. The minimalist nude look is a go-to look for any fashionista looking for a perfectly chic set of nails to go with any outfit.


Tropical Ombré Summer Manicures

Ombré and summer go together like Larmes de Medusa and cruelty-free. Since summer’s not quite over – you’ll still see clients coming in with ombré hair, which makes them perfect candidates for ombré summer manicures. Traditional ombré’s elegance is a staple – and will never flee the fashion scene. But this summer, a new ombré is building momentum. Instead of having the same design on every nail, people are painting each nail similar, yet different shades. This turns their whole hand into a flowing ombré art piece. Whether your client wants to go with traditional or shake up their ombré, our Instagram has all the summer manicures inspiration you need.


If you’re not near a beach this summer, this look will have you feeling like you are. The glamorous orange shade of “Tropical Sorbet” mixed with the hint of yellow we call “Lemon Squeeze” is the ultimate beach getaway manicure.


This ombré spinoff could be pulled off with any color – such as the trio of purples from Larmes de Medusa, (Orchid Obsession, All Love & Back to Belize). Add nail accents or glitter to make your manicure stand out even more in the sun.


Floral Summer Manicures   

Summer brings with it intricate nail art, and what better summer theme to paint on clients than florals? From chic rose designs to lively sunflower patterns, the floral trend is spreading everywhere. Even better than floral nail art – are real flowers that brighten up the planet. To keep our environmental footprint minimal and keep our beloved flowers (and nail inspiration) healthy, Larmes de Medusa’s entire nail gel-last collection is vegan, non-toxic, and earth-friendly.


The Medusa team took a twist on the floral trend. We focused on tropical leaves for the summer, and used a peach shade as the base offset by a bold copper. This pro-plant look was made using Larmes de Medusa’s gel-last colors in Baby Bonsai, Copper Rose and Flights to Dubai.
