My Top 10 Nail Polish Colors for Summer

Top Ten Nail Polish Colors for Summer

If you’re anything like me, you love bright colors…and what better to bring out bright colors is SUMMER!?  Can I get an AMEN?!  Sorry…it’s been a chilly April here in NC!

Lately, I have been loving the bright corals and pinks…but then again, I have always loved my nails to be painted pink, especially my toenails.
Speaking of…I think it’s time for a pedicure!  Anyone else with me?
My feet are horrendous in rough shape!

Lately I have been watching the drugstore sales to see when they have the Wet n Wild 1 Step Wondergel colors on sale.  They usually end up being around $5 dollars, which is super affordable, so when they do a sale on them, you usually get them BOGO 50% off!

I’m actually really loving the formulation of these polishes also!
I’ve tried MANY nail polishes, and this formulation is one of the better ones!
Let’s be honest — it’s not like going to the salon or spa and getting a true gel manicure, but you’re also not exposing your fingers to the UV light also, and it’s super easy to do at home!
Two coats is perfect coverage also, and so far for me, it’s lasted for about a week or so without chips, so I call that a win!!

Here are two of my fave colors for summer in this brand!
The top color is called “Coral Support” and the bottom color is called “Bye Feluschia”!

Another great formulation that seems to work best for me is Essie nail polish!  They have taken over the nail polish arena lately and come out with some of the best colors!
I don’t have any of these colors (yet), but I was browsing the store and these stood out to me to be faves for summer!

These first two are great colors for the toes.
I am not super bold when it comes to my fingernails, but if you are, then rock it!

These next two polishes are “definite buys” next time I can get them on sale!  As you can tell, I don’t like paying full price for many items!  I mean, why not save money when you can, am I right?!



Essie Nail Polish in Lounge Lover

Essie Nail Polish in Fiesta

Another brand that I have picked up and have loved is Zoya.
I believe that I first heard about this brand from a Birchbox that I had gotten in the past.
Ever since, when I go to Ulta or Beauty Brands, I always browse the clearance aisle for nail polish, and I luck up most of the time and find this brand!
This formula lasts very well on my nails, and is long wearing!  I can’t wait to look for this color!


Zoya Nail Polish in Laurel

We have all heard of and love OPI products.  I do have to say, the last few bottles that I have gotten, the formula tends to be a little thicker than what I typically prefer, and I have trouble getting the polish color to last.  But, when I was doing my “research” for this post, this color really stood out to me, and I love the name!  I think that OPI has some of the most interesting names sometimes!

I also love using the brand China Glaze on my nails because they have awesome colors, and are reasonably priced.  Most of the time, I pick up this brand at Sally Hansen stores.
I am a sucker for coral this year I think, because I am absolutely this nail color.
It does look similar to Lounge Lover from Essie which I featured above, but this one looks to have more of an orange undertone.  This color will look awesome with a great summer tan!


China Glaze Nail Color in About Layin’ Out

And last but not least is the color Seaside from Butter London!  This color stood out to me because it sort of reminds me of a mermaid color.  It totally reminds me of Ariel.
I mean, let’s be real – how many of you watched The Little Mermaid time and time again?!
My Mom said I ran that tape into the ground from watching it so much.
And yes, I did just date myself – I said TAPE….not DVD.
I mean, do kids even know what a VHS tape is now?! HA!
