These neon green half-and-half nails really make a statement, and we love how the colors lighten over the nails! Each nail begins with a clear glossy base then half the nail is painted in bright green, with a darker shade on the thumb and a pale lime green on the little finger for a faded look – so stunning!

3. Mix + match
Stick to a minimal color palette and then play around with lots of different designs to create a unique and individual manicure. This neon green and white manicure includes plenty of designs, such as swirls, hearts, flowers, smiley faces, and waves – you can mix and match these designs to create your own, distinctive manicure.

Neon colors and florals are one of our favorite combinations for the summer months, which is why we just adore this green and pink floral design! Nude nails with green French tips sit alongside glossy nude nails decorated with green and pink flowers, that have a striking, contrasting look since green and pink are opposite on the colour wheel.
