In the past couple of years, the buzzy Aperol Spritz has become more than a drink—it’s become a feeling, and I am confident in my statement that it is the summer of the spritz. When we think of an Aperol Spritz, we no longer just think of the bittersweet flavor and bright orange color, but we feel the late summer breeze and see the sunset fading in the distance. In short, the Aperol Spritz is the feeling of summer. If you don’t want to wait for happy hour and want to bring the Aperol energy into your day-to-day, check out these nail polishes for creating the perfect spritzy nails.

Aperol Spritz Nail Polishes for an Utterly Delicious Manicure

Olive & June “I’ll Take Another Spritz” ($9)

Aptly named, Olive & June’s “I’ll Take Another Spritz” represents the color of a perfectly made Aperol Spritz, with just enough red, orange and pink tones. The slight iridescence in the finish calls upon the shimmer of the waves you’re *hopefully* gazing on while you sip your beverage.

The Manucurist Green Natural Nail Polish in Coral Reef ($14)

I like my spritz to be heavier on the Aperol and lighter on the everything else, so I prefer a spritz that is pretty much the exact color as The Manucurist’s Coral Reef polish. With a deeper red base, this color is great way to honor the summer drink and upgrade your classic “lucky girl” red nails.

O.P.I. Nail Lacquer in Tempura-Ture Is Rising ($12)

Is there anything better than a punny nail polish? O.P.I.’s Tempura-Ture is Rising calls on the shade’s shrimpy, pink under tones, making it a great pink-forward coral shade to use when creating a spritz-themed manicure.

Dior Vernis Glossy Nail Polish in 648 Mirage ($32)

In my opinion, there’s nothing more luxurious than treating yourself to an Aperol Spritz at an outdoor dining establishment, and what better brand to add to that air of luxury than Dior? With the brand’s Glossy Nail Polish in 648 Mirage on your nails, you’ll definitely be snapping some happy hour drink pics.

O.P.I. Nail Lacquer in Exotic Birds Do not Tweet ($12)

One of the classic garnishes for an Aperol Spritz is a fresh slice of lemon, so pulling from some juicy, citrus-inspired shades like O.P.I.’s Nail Lacquer in Birds Do Not Tweet is an unconventional way to create an spritz-inspired nail look. You can even use the shade as an accent nail with some coral shades to create a well-rounded Aperol Spritz manicure.

essie Nail Polish in Don’t Be Spotted ($9)

If you’re on the opposite end of the Aperol flavor spectrum as me and like when your spritz is heavier on the champagne, club soda and, subsequently, lighter on the blood orange coloring, you’ll love essie’s Don’t Be Spotted. A classic orange shade with a little bit of shimmer, this polish is a tried-and-true way to bring out your happy hour manicure.

Chanel Le Vernis in Fugueuse ($32)

Okay—hear me out. When you picture a bottle of Aperol in your head what do you see? That bright, blood-orange liqueur, of course, but another staple of the Aperol legeacy is its rich, royal blue label. If you’re interested in adding a deeper accent to your spritz nails, painting a finger or two this Chanel blue is a great idea.

Lights Lacquer Aperol Spritz, Anyone? ($13)

After all that talk of Aperol Spritz nails, one simple question remains: anyone want a drink? Lights Lacquer’s answer to that question is yes, as their “Aperol Spritz, Anyone?” nail polish was specifically created to accompany the summer of the spritz, and is complete with just the right amount of sparkle.
