25 Peach Nails That Are Perfect For Summer (& Beyond)

From French tips to minimalist lines.

Peachy keen, jelly bean — we are all about peach nails. Soft and sweet, vibrant yet subdued, a peach manicure is a universally loved (and entirely mutable) shade. Depending on the level of saturation, peach nails can skew bold or demure, and partner well with a variety of palettes and patterns, making it one of the most easily personalized shades around. For fans of neutral hues, pale peach is essentially a warm neutral, while a neoprene peach provides the perfect amount of funky-fun ideal for summer nights. Conversely, when coupled with other shades of orange, the polish option veers into fall (and pumpkin spice) territory, making it a season-spanning choice. Peach also acts as an unexpected highlight to tangerines, pinks, and even otherwise naked nails, punctuating said approaches to cool and memorable effect.

In addition to stripes, florets, color-blocks, and reverse French manis, you’re free to celebrate the fruit in literal form with decals and prettily painted peaches that look appealing enough to eat — though to be clear, we are not advocating literal nail biting, no matter how strong the temptation may be.
