Whoever said kicking back for a nail sesh is chill clearly hasn’t had the stress of deciding between a basic bubble gum pink or going all out with a fierce design while flipping through those acrylic color swatches for what feels like an eternity.

If you’re anything like the squad over at ELLE.com’s beauty crew, your Insta saves are stacked with nail inspo. Whether you’re on the hunt for some killer nail art ideas or just wanna stay in the loop with the latest nail shades, one spot that’s always on fleek is the fashion week runways.

The spring/summer 2024 runways were serving up major nail vibes, drawing inspo from the viral balletcore trend that’s been blowing up everywhere.

Classic styles like the French mani got a fresh makeover with chrome deets and silver chrome nails, which have been slaying since fall/winter ’23 (shoutout to Beyoncé and the Renaissance Tour), and they’re not slowing down anytime soon.

Logomania is still going strong, and those stiletto and coffin nails? They’re getting longer and more extra by the minute. Plus, short nails are still reigning supreme, thanks to the whole “clean girl” movement.

We caught up with Natalie Minerva, total nail queen and OPI Global Ambassador, to spill the tea on all the spring/summer 2024 trends that had us shook on the fashion week runways. Check it out below for the nine flyest nail trends you’ll be rockin’ this spring and summer.
