Summer 2023 Trends – Matching Jewelry and Manicures


You know what they say about trends – they come and go – but that doesn’t make them any less fun! The fashion trends for summer 2023 are especially fun and creative: from bold and colourful dresses to statement sunglasses to matching jewelry to manicures. We’re huge fans of the latter trend, in particular, because while it’s somewhat over-the-top, it’s also oh, so beautiful.

This season is all about creating a coordinated look that brings together your rings, bracelets, necklaces, and nail art for a super-stylish, high-maintenance ensemble. In this blog post, we explore the hottest summer jewelry trends and how you can best complement them with your manicure.


Oversized and Chunky

Oversized, chunky statement pieces are all the rage this summer. Think big, bold necklaces, oversized earrings, and chunky rings that demand attention.

These statement pieces add a touch of drama and personality to even the simplest, most minimalist outfits, making them perfect for summer parties and events. Don’t be afraid to mix metals and experiment with unique shapes and textures to create truly eye-catching looks!

When it comes to chunky statement pieces and nail art, the foolproof way to make the two work together is to opt for neutral nail polish. Nudes, soft grays, and black nail colors are classy and minimalistic, so they’re guaranteed to complement your statement pieces. The neutral tones act as a versatile backdrop, allowing your bold jewelry to stand out and actually make a statement.

For example, if you’re rocking a large diamond ring, you probably don’t want your bold, glitter manicure to steal the attention. While we’re on the topic of diamonds, if you want to stay up-to-date with the latest trends, be sure to get the latest diamond shavings update.

Another great way to complement your chunky, bold jewelry is to opt for metallic nail colours. If you’re wearing gold or brass pieces, go for a gold or champagne-colored nail polish. For silver or platinum jewelry, opt for a metallic silver or chrome nail polish.

The summer of 2023 is very much about nature-inspired jewelry: from floral motifs to delicate animal designs to celestial elements.

Look for intricate floral earrings, leaf-shaped pendants, and delicate animal charms. These pieces are perfect for people who love nature and more delicate accessories, as they add a touch of wild elegance and femininity to any outfit.

Okay, so how can you match your lovely nature-inspired jewelry with your manicure? The easiest, and some might argue the prettiest way to do this is to color coordinate, a.k.a. match your jewelry with your nails by opting for a similar nail shade.

For example, if your rings have floral or leaf designs in vibrant colors like green or deep red, consider painting your nails in a similar color. Opting for an emerald or burgundy nail polish will enhance the natural beauty of your rings and hands.

Likewise, if your jewelry has intricate details like small gemstone accents, you can reflect those details in your manicure. For instance, if your necklace has small sparkling crystals, consider adding a touch of glitter to your nails. Apply a clear or nude nail polish with a sprinkle of fine glitter, or choose a shimmery one. This will create a subtle but beautiful connection between your jewelry and nail art.

Layered Jewelry

Layered jewelry has been popular for a few years now, and this summer is no exception. The art of layering jewelry allows you to create a personalized and unique look that reflects your style, so we say, embrace it!

Mix and match different necklace lengths, stack rings on multiple fingers, and pile on bracelets to achieve an effortlessly chic and bohemian look. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different textures, metals, and colours, either.

When it comes to coordinating your manicure with your layered jewelry, it’s best to keep it simple. A minimalist nail polish in a neutral colour like nude or soft pink works well to create a clean and understated canvas that allows your jewelry to become the focal point.

If you want a more creative look, consider adding delicate accents to your nails that reflect the delicate beauty of your layered jewelry. For example, if you’re wearing dainty gold necklaces, you could paint your nails with gold nail polish or add subtle decals to one or two nails.
