June means a lot of things: the first month of summer, Pride Month, Gemini season (for my fellow June Geminis out there), the beginning of the summer wedding season. Regardless of what June means to you, the next several weeks are bound to be full of celebrations and events.

If you’re anything like me, any sort of celebration warrants a fresh manicure. But, with each passing month—even week, I’d venture to say—nail trends change, making it hard to choose a nail color. No matter where your June is taking you, here are some of the best nail colors for the month.

June Nail Color Inspiration

1 / 7

Creamy Neon Pink

According to nail expert Rebecca Isa, creative director of Zoya, “Our favorite colors for June are creamy neons with coordinating brilliant neon glitter accents, which are perfect for beach and pool parties. After all, it’s summer, and your manis and pedis should show it! Clear-tone pastel neons are still going strong if you’re not ready for their bolder sisters.”

A summer take on Barbie pink, creamy neon pink is a great option to brighten up your June manicure.

Orange Creamsicle

Another creamy neon nail color for June is a yummy creamsicle orange. When the days get warmer, we crave those icy popsicle treats to cool us down, so why not channel that energy into your mani with a creamy orange hue?

Mint Green

This week, Kissing Booth star Joey King took to the Despicable Me 4 premier rocking a chrome-coated mint green manicure, and we can’t get enough of the chic, pastel shade for June. If you want to jazz up the manicure even more, add a coat of chrome powder like King.

Butter Yellow

From Sabrina Carpenter’s Gov Ball look to Kelsea Ballerini’s ACM nails, butter yellow is undoubtedly one of the colors of the Summer. Whether you’re embarking on a beach vacation, attending a garden party–themed wedding or just looking to soak up some more sun, butter yellow is the perfect manicure shade for June.

Rainbow Glitter

If you want to create a manicure suitable for celebrating Pride Month but don’t want to go crazy with designs, using an iridescent rainbow glitter polish is a great option. You can jazz the style up even more with polishes that feature different shaped flecks, from hearts to stars.

Blueberry Milk

Milky nails have been all the rage for quite some time now, and JLo’s recent blueberry milk mani for the premier of Netflix’s Atlas solidified the milky white with a hint of blue shade as a staple for the Summer.

Blush Jelly

Jelly nails have been absolutely taking over my TikTok “for you” page as of late, and Essie’s line of jelly gloss polishes are everything you need to create that glassy, jelly-like finish. Designed for layering but perfectly suitable for use on their own, shades like Blush Jelly are perfect for your June manicure.
