Lemon nail designs trend
hard for spring and summer but I just love the fun colorway and fun of the style. I could wear these year-round.
These are some pretty bright yellow nails with some lemon squeeze surprise! I like how the lemon design looks on top of a plain nude pink nail.
We’ve got a predominantly yellow matte nail set here with a lemon accent nail. The lemon design on this one is a bit doodle-like which I find very cute!
These bright colors remind me of Spring! We’ve got some full plain pink nails and pink French tips that are topped with some whole lemons and lemon slices!
It’s a pastel fruit salad in here! Each nail has a different colored French tip which is topped by a unique fruit. I like the cute little cherry nail art design. It’s missing my favorite fruit though, get some kiwi nail art in there!
These yellow nails are just so charming! Again we’ve got lemon slices on the edges of the nail which are painted on top of a pink that matches the normal nail color. It just makes the lemon design stand out a bit more!
Going even brighter with a white and yellow combo! We’ve got some full bright yellow nails and some white nails which are topped with some lemon and leaves. These would look so bright on your nails!
Strawberry lemonade anyone? We’ve got another pink and yellow combination, this time we’ve got some lemon designs that layer on top of the pink French tip.
If you’re a short nail kind of gal here’s a nail look you might want to try! We’ve got some pastel yellows and some lemon designs on a clear base. It’s very simple but cute nonetheless!
The artistry on this one is impressive! Here are some beautiful lemon slice designs on top of a nice matte nude base nail. The lemon design is so realistic it’s amazing!
Some more strawberry lemon punch, please! I just love how the lemon designs look on top of the baby pink base!
Here’s a set that’s reminding me of lemons and limes! We’ve got some pretty tea-green painted nails and nude nails that are topped with some lemons. I love how all the colors come together!
Now here’s a warmer yellow shade which really reminds me of some ripe lemons. The design on this one isn’t as detailed but I think that it fits the overall look!
Here’s a pretty clean nail set design! We’ve got some classic white French tips on the other nails while the nails in the middle have lemon slice designs on the edges. I think these are some nails that you can wear anywhere because of how subtle the entire design looks.
This one’s pretty similar to the previous nail designs but the lemon design on this one is a lot more zoomed out and includes a lot of stems and leaves.
We’ve got some pastel yellow nails on the outer nails and in the middle we have one nail with a lemon slice edge and some full lemons on the other.
I really like this design because the lemons also kind of look like flower petals. This is probably a set that you could wear during Spring because the colors and subtle design just fits the Spring theme! A very April nail design to this set.
The design on these nails alternates from a full yellow polish with a lemon element design.
I think that the square shape and the length of these nails are perfect. I also love how the lemons look on top of a clear glossy base because it resembles lemon juice!
This is another set similar to the others but this time the design is a bit more cutesy instead of realistic.
We all love our citruses! Finally, we’re adding in a pop of color with this fruit galore! I love how the reds and oranges greatly contrast the yellow and greens. The color combination is overall so pleasing to look at!
Here’s a warmer lemon look!
These nails are definitely keeping summer alive! I think that matching this set with a beautiful green outfit would just make the design pop a lot more!
This is for the lemon-loving girls who want to keep it a bit more simple. We’ve got some pretty pastel yellow French tips and one accent nail with some lemons and white dots on it!
I adore these long stiletto nails! The star of the show isn’t the pretty matte lemon designs but the beautiful yellow shimmer.
I love how the bright pastel yellow polish was contrasted with the darker warmer tones of the lemon and leaf designs.
It’s citrus season! This nail art is quite impressive because of how realistic it seems. If you compare the lemon peel design with the actual lemon at the back, you’d find the similarities uncanny!
Finally breaking all of that yellow with some pretty greens.
I’m loving this colorful twist on this theme! We’ve got some lemon slices but this time in various bright colors!
I like it when artists add a bit more designs to make the nails look more interesting! This time, we’ve got a mix of yellow solid polish, a yellow tip, some plain lemons, and a white criss-cross design with a lemon on top.
Now, this is how you make lemons classy! Here we’ve got some matte golden lemon polish and for the accent nail, we have a clear base that’s topped off with a beautiful 3D nail art lemon with gold embellishments on top.
Dreaming of Spring with these pretty nails. This beautiful jade green has been in trend these days and for good reason! The color contrasts and complements the bright yellow design so well.
When life gives you lemons, you make lemon nails. This design is just so cute and quirky! I love the realistic lemon slices, the 3D lemon toppers on the lemonade design with ice, and the beautiful glistening lemons.
Making lemons a bit more accessible with these. We’ve got some beautiful yellow French tip outlines, some lemon slice edges, and a nail with a lot of leaf borders surrounding the lemons.
Looking forward to warmer days where we can enjoy a nice cool glass of lemonade!
This set is unique and different from the others because of its unique art style. It seems a lot like watercolor art and I think that its simplicity is refreshing.
Dazzling it up with these cute dream-like yellow and purple-themed nails. I love the French tip designs which remind me of a cute purple sky. I also think that the strawberries and lemons on this nail are just adorable!
Spice up your citrus with a bit of gold!
This is a cute little pattern filled with lemons. The base is a nice matte eggshell white and it’s topped with some lemons with black detailing.
Break up all that yellow by adding in a pop of color! In this look, a nice bubblegum pink was used to add a bit of color to the otherwise yellow-dominant look.
I’m really loving how these warm yellow lemon looks are looking! I think that the color palette used in this look is so comforting and reminds me so much of fall!
I really love how simple this look is. If you’re too intimidated by fun designs and want a nail set that you can wear even in more serious settings, you may want to give this one a try!
Adding in a lot more color with this one! We’ve got some solid bubblegum pink polish, a colorful striped polish, and of course, our lemon-designed nail.
I’m loving how these lemon nails look with a matte finish. I think that everything looks a lot tidier when you finish it off with a matte topper.
Give way for the cutest color combo yet! I love how this powder blue looks with this lemon yellow. I think that these colors together both contrast and complement each other. I also love the mini drip effect on the glittered lemon!
Some medium almond nails that combine some minimal lemon designs and solid yellow polish.
Squeezing the last bit of summer out of these nails!
We have a nice warm yellow lemon moment going on! I love that the lemon designs are mixed around and are not sat next to each other. I think that it makes the entire look seem much cleaner.
Lemon is always pretty in pink! I love the cute pink design with some thin white stripes. This base is perfectly contrasted with a nice bright yellow lemon design and some deep green contrasting leaves.
Saving the best for last! This nail set is stunning. We’ve got a beautiful white and blue wavy tip which is topped with some warm brown and white glitter designs. I love how the lemon design also doesn’t overpower the entire look. Overall, I love the design and the colors together!
