In honor of BRIKA’s collaboration with Her Majesty’s Pleasure (a genius, Toronto-based nail salon and cocktail bar in one), we’ve rounded up five nail art trends that are fun and summery (darker nail shades be damned!). Now, bring on the ice-cold rosé and frosty margaritas, position them in a shot that shows off your new mani, and you have a summer-soaked Instagram dream come true.
1. Rainbow sparkle
Pair a basic nude shade with some confetti-colored sparkle to elevate the ordinary.
2. Oil spill nails
Similar to our galaxy-inspired coasters tutorial, we can’t get enough of this slick look (pun definitely intended).
3. Marble nails
Ever the symbol of luxury, the marbled look for nails screams understated elegance.

4. Fine lines
Get creative with your color combinations while drawing fine lines in unexpected ways to add interest.
5. Pastel ombré
Think cotton candy, creamsicles and everything in between; haute hippie is the name of the game with these pastel confections.
If you’re in Toronto, be sure to check out our gifting kiosk at Her Majesty’s Pleasure for a handpicked selection of well-crafted goods. Located at 556 King Street West.
