10+ Fruity Non Toxic Nail Polish Colors For Summer

By Chiara Spagnoli Gabardi

Summer means a lot of things to a lot of people, but for me, there’s definitely something I look forward to when the heat is on: fresh fruit! Soft peaches, tart cherries, juicy watermelons…all in season, at last!

And reflecting the best food news of the season is the best beauty trend: fruity nails for summer. And by that, I mean juicy ‘Jolly Rancher’ fruity candy colours for your tips and toes.

It’s easy to do, and there are plenty of great 5, 7, and even 9-free nail polish brands to help you get the trend. In case you’re wondering, 5-free means the varnish will not contain:

  • 1. Formaldehyde
  • 2. Toluene
  • 3. DBP
  • 4. Camphor
  • 5. Formaldehyde resin

And anything above that will lose two or more of these, too:

  • 6. Xylene
  • 7. Parabens
  • 8. Fragrances
  • 9. Phthalates
  • 10. Animal ingredients
  • 11. Gluten

Here’s now to get your fingertips and toes ready for summer exposure in the most non-toxic way possible!

10+ Fruity Non Toxic Nail Polish Colors For Summer

2. Banana

We can’t have fruity nails without the ultimate summer shade: yellow! Whether you like your bananas on the firmer side or super yellow and ripe, there is a nail shade for all this season. Kure Bazaar’s Saffron is the perfect yellow for nails as sweet as ripe banana. Another bold, vibrant shade is Nailtopia’s Glow Up.

This summer, it’s super trendy to mimic your mani-pedi to one of the number one hipster foods: avocado! Yep, green nails are a thing, and there are many ways to embrace this trend. Want your nails the same shade as an avocado? Nailtopia’s Green Goddess is literally the perfect shade. Prefer it the same shade as a creamy smoothie? Nailtopia’s Juice Cleanse is a pastel shade that would suit anyone!

3. Blueberry

Blueberries hold an intriguing fascination because they are a rare example of the colour blue in nature. To enhance this sense of extravagance, Nailtopia’s How Blue-tiful is a deeper blue while Nailtopia’s Blueberry Milk is a little softer.

4. Watermelon

When it comes to nail polish, one brand we can always count on to bring gorgeous shades in a toxic-free bottle is Pacifica! Their shades are 16-free and bio-based, and the vibrant colours are long lasting, hurruh! Pacifica’s Neon Watermelon is a gorgeous pink hue that beautifully mimics the colour of watermelon. Alternatively, 100% Pure’s Cor-All or Nothing is super vibrant!

Tip: Why not buy some black polish and paint some teeny, weeny ‘seeds’ on top of the pink?

Zesty and fabulous, lime is the perfect pop of colour for your summer nails. Zoya’s Tangy is a lighter lime shade, whereas Zoya’s Midori has a little shimmer if you’re daunted by going green with your nails.

6. Peach

When in season, peaches are a super sweet fruit and they make the perfect shade for summer. When it comes to peaches, there are many different shades, also. Some peaches are more yellow whereas others are soft pink hues and some even have purples tones. Nailtopia’s Camelflage is a sweet pink shade whereas Kure Bazaar’s Essenziale is wonderfully peachy.

7. Strawberry

Feminine and sweet is the girl who wears this bright shade during the summer. Zoya’s Marigold is the perfect replica of sweet, juicy ripe strawberries! It even has a little shimmer to really make your nails stand out.

Tip: Make sure to brush slightly under the tip of the nail to prevent premature tip wear.

8. Grapes

Grapes are delicious, but they also make our favourite tipple: wine! Ella + Mila’s In Line for Wine is a much richer purple if you’re wanting your nails similar to your go-to glass of wine! Prefer a softer purple? Nailberry’s Peace is an opaque purple-grey hue that encapsulates grapes perfectly.
