The rainbow-filled sky is the limit for this season’s nail colors. Everything from bright, tropical-inspired shades to lustrous earth tones are in style this summer, just in time to dip your pretty, painted toes in the sand.
Some seasonal favorites, which incidentally have great names, as well as fun colors:
Blue Me Away, by Bio Seawood Gel
This all-in-one UNITY Polish gives you long lasting gel nails quickly and easily without the need for prep coats, finishing coats or even a UV dryer as it can “cure” (a.k.a. dry) in the sun!
Bright Fuchsia, by Opi
A high-fashion bright shade for look-at-me nails that pop! Formaldehyde-free.
Cymbidium, by FABY Nature
The ingredients in this polish, 87% of which are of natural origin, are derived from the manufacture of wood pulp, cotton, maize, cassava and other raw vegetable materials. They are not derived from petroleum, so it’s an eco-friendly choice as well as a fashionable one.
Drinks at Sunset, by Whim
In addition to great colors, Whim Nail Lacquers deliver an ultra-glossy, high shine manicure that wears like a gel and removes like a polish.
I Woke Up Like This, by Trust Fund Beauty
A bright, fun, pink glitter polish with a touch of cheekiness, as evidenced by the company name.
