When it comes to summer beauty, one trend that never goes out of style is a set of hot pink nails. And at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2012 in Miami Beach on Sunday, Ali Fedotowsky got into the spirit of the season with a fluorescent manicure.

Clad in a billowy floral maxi dress, the former Bachelorette star, 26, sat next to her BFF Stephanie Munoz in the front row at the Luxe By Lisa Vogel runway show. Beneath her floor-length skirt, the reality TV starlet sported strappy sandals that showed off a day-glo pedicure that matched her bright pink nails. Her hair was done in her signature style -- beachy, surfer-girl waves.

When it comes to pulling off an eye-popping hue like Fedotowsky does here, keep nails trimmed short and filed into a square shape -- two essential rules for a clean-looking manicure.
