Be the main character.

Originally Published: 
Born between July 23 and Aug 22, Leos are a passionate fire sign represented by the lion. Known to be the total diva of the zodiac, they are theatrical, vibrant, and natural born leaders.

Rep Your Sign

If you’re a Leo and proud, elevate some neutral nails with glittery letters that rep your zodiac sign.

Major Magnetic Nail Polish

For a colorful and chromatic vibe that shifts shades under the light, opt for magnetic nail lacquers in warm hues like this dreamy manicure on Vanessa Hudgens.

Invisible French Manicure

For a barely-there manicure that still gets all the attention, go for vibrant shades for an outlined invisible French tip (like this hot pink design).

Precious Gemstone Nails

Rubies are a vibrant gemstone associated with the sign of Leo — and this marbled nail art looks like the blood-red gemstone IRL.

Orange & Black Swirls

If The Lion King were a manicure, this nail art design would be it.

Bubblegum Pink Tips

For the minimal manicure lovers who still want to make a statement with their tips, opt for a wash of bubblegum pink nail polish (just like Selena Gomez did just this week).

Your Nails But Better

For “quiet luxury” vibes, dress up your tips with a “your nails but better” neutral à la Lights Lacquer’s sheer jelly collection of polishes for every skin tone.

Ruby Red Micro French

These stunning micro French tips are the perfect way to incorporate the vibrant “red nail theory” in a subtle way.

Always Extra

Leo SZN is all about being extra and taking up space. What better way to embrace that energy than with a nail design that’s studded, gilded, and stunning?

Solar Neon French Tips

Ever since Hailey Bieber was spotted with neon yellow nails, the bold hue has been a summer staple (and go-to color for it-girls, too).

Barbiecore Baddie

The new Margot Robbie-fronted Barbie movie truly is the main character right now. Barbiecore nails (like this velvety set) are an easy way to have all eyes on you, too.

3D Gold Drip Nails

Between Doja Cat’s mosaic nails and Christina Aguilera’s NSFW mani moment, it’s safe to say that 3D nail art is it. Tap the trend with golden shades of chrome nail polish.
