Summer is finally here, as we transition from spring pastels, autumn neutrals, and festive winter nails, we are excited to welcome the unique and fun nail trends of summer 2023! Summer is the time of the year when you can experiment and step out of your comfort zone by trying bright colours or the 3D nails you saw a tutorial on. There are plenty of excuses to book a manicure you will see through this season or even do them yourself; the possibilities are endless with summer holidays, weddings and warm weather festivities.
As we kick start the summer, at Bio Seaweed Gel June is a month that we hold dear to our hearts. This month we are celebrating Summer, Pride Month and BSG Day – our 17th birthday! There is no better time than our birthday month to showcase our values; inclusivity, self-care and the community. See here on what celebrity nail techs in the industry do for self-care!
At Bio Seaweed Gel we strongly believe in our values. We are grateful for our amazing community that supports us and share the same goals with us for 17 years+! On behalf of Bio Seaweed Gel, we truly thank everyone. For the month of June, we wanted to shine some light on our UNITY-All-In-One Gel Polish with a behind the scene as the product truly relates with our values and beliefs here at BSG. Our UNITY-All-In-One Gel Polish was once named 3-in-1; with base, top and colour all in one bottle but deep down we knew 3-in-1 was not what we wanted to call it. Eventually back to the drawing board our team went, it took us awhile to really nail down what the product represents; opportunities for advancement, growth and inclusivity. Thus UNITY-All-In-One Gel Polish was born!
Keep reading to see our top 11 summer nail trends that we continue to see on thousands of nail techs and nail enthusiasts, tag us on Instagram we would love to see your work!

I always like doing a holo polish at some point in the summertime cause of how they sparkle when the sun is out. May try to do art with one instead to incorporate one of these styles into the rotation!
Would love to try donut glaze!
The simple neon is a great look for the summer. Beyond that, I admire the Lip Gloss Nails and also enjoy using Artiste.
Looks 2 & 3 are my favourite
So many great ideas to try !! I’m definitely trying lip gloss nails and some more neon colours !
Neon! I have better in a bikini on right now! I also need a nice pale orange to accent it :)
I want to try the donut glaze!
I want to try lip gloss nails and micro French. I just need to decide which one to do first!
Planning on trying out neon nails this summer!
The lip gloss nails looks cool!
I’m loving the inspo for “Lip gloss nails!” and the mix and match! So hard to pick which one to do next!
I love the micro French and the glazed donut nails! I use BSG Milkshake and a chrome powder for my glazed donut nails, it’s the perfect combination!
