Looking for a little bit of nail inspiration for the upcoming warmer season? You’ve come to the right place. The summer months, in particular, lend themselves to bright colors, fun designs, and abounding creativity. In other words: Don’t limit yourself and have fun painting. To prompt our own designs, we took to Instagram and Reddit to find some of the juiciest fruity manicures out there.

Instagram User ilnails01 created this straightforward pineapple mani. We love the clean, white nails and cute pineapple accents.

How about some cherry nails? These are by Instagram user nicolethain_nailtech and worn by kristynmarie78.

Loudest nails ever?😆🍓🍌🍑🍉🍒🍐🍇🍍.. . These were a strugggggle. They took me 4 days, 2 or 3 nails at a time lol. I just didn't have my normal chunk of nail time so I had to do them a little here and there. Total pain, but I really like them! P.s. how satisfying is this picture though... #fruitnailart #fruitnails #strawberries #bananas #blueberries #peaches #blackberries #watermelon #cherries #pears #raspberries #pineapple #nailart #craftyfingers #nails2inspire #instanails #thenailartstory #nailsoftheweek #nailpolismuseum #nailfashion #nailartappreciation #sydviciousnails

This multi-fruit mani, by Instagram user thecieniu, isn’t as complex as above. It still incorporates lots of fruit, though.
