While our summer may look a little different compared to past warm-weather seasons due to the novel coronavirus, Harry Styles would like to take you to a hot-day paradise in his latest music video, “Watermelon Sugar,” which features the singer frolicking on a beach eating watermelon, surrounded by friends, touching and interacting with them. (Seems like a dream, doesn’t it?) As beauty editors, however, what caught our eye more than the summery, perfect day in the video is Styles’ summery, perfect manicure.
There has always been a ridiculous stigma surrounding men wearing nail polish. However, that has never phased Styles at all since he wears polish so often, most recently the bubblegum-pink, matte shade in his new video. The hue just screams summer, and whether this year’s warmest months are spent social-distancing near the water or in a Zoom party, there’s always an excuse to show off your manicure.
If you’re feeling inspired by Styles’s pink manicure, we hand-picked three nail polish shades to channel your inner rockstar.
Essie Nail Enamel in Need a Vacation
Doesn’t the shade name say it all? This light pink shade works with all outfits, not to mention all skin tones. Paint it on your fingers and toes to feel like you’re on the ultimate getaway (even if you can’t leave your house).

OPI Nail Lacquer in Pink-ing of You
This shade is a little softer than Styles’s hue, but that doesn’t mean it’s not an ideal summer shade. The baby-pink polish is highly pigmented and perfect for day and night, summer and winter. We recommend two or three coats of this one, depending on how opaque you want to go.

Smith & Cult Suburban Warrior Nail Polish in Fuchsia
If you want to go full “Watermelon Sugar,” take this bottle for a spin. This fuchsia tone is a mix of warm and cool pigments that has “hot summer day” written all over it. This vibrant shade will bring brightness to your nails for a while, thanks to its long-wearing formula.
