Hey Gals! With only a month left of summer, I’ve vowed to make the most of it and enjoy every last bit of sunshiney goodness that comes along! So with fall right around the corner, I’ve been loving my fun summer mani options. I love a dark polish as much as the next gal, but as long as it’s still summer, you’ll find me sporting neons and brights (and glitter.. which is seasonless, of course!). So today I thought it’d be fun to share my favorite summer polish go-to’s while the weather is still warm and the coffee is still iced!!
I’ve reached for this pink many times this summer – it’s the perfect neon pink that brightens up your look and looks great with a tan! I love it on my fingers and my toes, which gives me double the opportunities to wear it! It applies like a dream, and has an almost matte appearance once it dries, which makes it unique, though I usually will seal it with a shiny top coat since I love the slicked look.
While Deborah Lippmann is normally known for her glitters, this bright orange stunner is not to be overlooked. It’s the perfect summer shade and was actually my polish of choice for B’s recent neon themed bbq!
I recently discovered this fan favorite, and I’m not sure why it took me so long! But I absolutely love the powdery blue color and how adorable is the name?! I found that the application is a little tricky, so just be careful to let your nails dry between coats and use a good top coat to seal and smooth it out.
How can we have a summer polish list without this mermaid-y goddess?! If you are looking for a change of pace from the usual neons and summer brights, then this is definitely your gal! The color is turquoise perfection, with lots of beautiful glitter and texture that will have you staring at your nails all day long!
If you are looking for a great summer mani, but want something a little more subdued than some of the bolder selections listed above, I definitely recommend checking out this opaque lavender orchid cream. And seeing as radiant orchid was the Pantone color of the year, you can’t get more on trend than this!
No nail list of mine would be complete without a Rescue Beauty Lounge pick! This color is peachy perfection while still being very subtle for those days you are stuck behind a desk instead of at the beach! And the formula is a beautiful squishy jelly, which means it’s a breeze to apply and you can layer as many or little coats as you want to vary the intensity of the color.
What are your favorite summer polishes?! Are you excited for the moody and brooding darks of fall or are you like me and looking to preserve every sunny last drop of summer?!
