Fun Summer Nail Polish


It’s hard to remember a time when I wore grey nail polish for the majority of the year! These days I’m leaning more towards sheer creams or really bright oranges or pinks! I love brightening everything up in the summertime and wanted to share a few of my favorite nail polish shades for this season!

Essie Gel Couture Bold Boundaries – This is a beautiful strawberry red. It looks fantastic on fingers and toes!

Essie Strike a Rose – Such a fun bright pink. I’m wearing it in the photo above.

Essie A Touch of Sugar – A beautiful light pink color to wear on fingernails.

OPI Cajun Shrimp – Perhaps my favorite nail polish shade in history. It’s an orangey red that is my go-to for toenails all summer long.

OPI V-I-Pink Passes – Another beautiful bright pink that is a little less neon than Essie’s Strike a Rose.

OPI Strawberry Margarita – A classic strawberry pink!

OPI Aloha from OPI – A warm coral-orange shade that is my go-to in July and August.

If you do your own nails at home, I highly recommend following these steps

    I love the colour on your nails in the pic! My nails are horrible and I rarely make time to paint them but I do love it when I do get them done.

    Pretty! I made my own pink by taking an Essie nude that looked terrible on my hands and adding a few drops of an Essie red. I was hoping for a pale pink, but added too much red and now I have this unexpected Barbie pink that surprisingly looks fantastic on my toes. I call my color Pink Starburst.

    These are such fun summer selections! If you are looking to branch out, I might suggest Zoya Cora or Dixie, as I think you might enjoy a great coral as well!
