I’m pretty sure I say this for just about every season, but oh hot damn the nail polish options in Summer are absolutely killer.
Though I personally tend to gravitate more towards neutrals and nudes, there’s something about the Summer sun that puts a spell over even me and persuades us to bust out the hot pinks, crazy blues, and mega sparkles.
If you’re interested in checking out what shades I have selected as my Summer holy grails, just keep on reading…
Essie “Cute as a Button”: Starting off with the most Summery of all Summer nail shades, my first pick for this seasons polish has to be Essie’s “Cute as a Button”. This shade is unique in the fact that it perfectly teeters over the line of being neon and being wearable. A hot coral-pink, “Cute as a Button” is a classic Summer shade that will make people reach for their sunglasses.
Jenna Hipp “Creme de Cantaloupe”: Next up is a perfect option for anybody who wants to jump on the bright and crazy color bandwagon- but without committing to too much intensity. “Creme de Cantaloupe” is a muted, milky orange that perfectly encapsulates the warmth of summer while still being exceptionally wearable. Not too bright but not too boring, “Creme de Cantaloupe” is an ideal stepping stone towards the craziness of Summer.
Urban Decay “Addiction”: While darker, more sultry colors are generally more regarded as wearable in Winter, there’s something about Urban Decay’s “Addiction” that breaks that mold. An undeniably unique shade that is somewhere between a frosted green and grey, Addiction will undoubtedly bring a level of mystery to the Summer months.
Sinful Colors “Sweet Nothing”: Have you ever seen a nail polish more suited for a day at the pool? I think not. Sinful Colors “Sweet Nothing” is an absolutely glorious aqua blue that perfectly mimics the cool and casual vibes of Summer. For those of you who aren’t into the hot pinks and neon oranges that often dominate the warmer months, “Sweet Nothing” will be your savior.
Wet n’ Wild “On a Trip”: Last but most certainly not least is a nail polish that has been one of my go-to shades for a number of years now. Wet n’ Wild “On a Trip” is an electric purple that (similar to pretty much all the other shades I’ve chosen… whoops) is shockingly wearable for being so out there. A perfect Summer color, this shade is sure to get you into the vacation spirit ASAP!
