What’s the best way to instantly upgrade your look? A fresh coat of nail polish!
See which nail polishes we’re coveting this summer:
Ceramic Glaze – Tropical Guava ($10.99)
We like to use Ceramic Glaze lacquers because they have a special non-thickening formula that goes on thin and a higher colour saturation of pigmentation to create a perfectly even application. Our fave CG shade is Tropical Guava. This pink looks amazing on sun-kissed skin.
Nicole by Opi – Notorious! Neons Kit ($12.50)
Nicole by OPI launched its first neon nail lacquer in May with limited edition mini kits. Notorious! Neons include shades of green, fuchsia and orange. “These kits offer the hottest hues in a mini size to complement summer styles,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, Nicole by OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. Tip: Use all three shades by alternating every other nail for a vibrant summer look.
Sally Hansen – InstaGel Strips in Horray Ombre ($15.95)
Two major trends this year are nail art and ombre. Sally Hansen combines these trends in their new collection of strips for their popular InstaGel Strips line. Simply peel and apply and you’ve got a gorgeous manicure!
L’Oreal Paris – Colour Riche Wishful Pinking ($6.99)
While brights take a front seat this season, pastels are still on trend. Perfect for summer weddings or romantic dates, this pink is a neutral you’ll want to keep handy. Colour Riche polishes last up to 10 days and have a lovely shine.
Essie – Naughty Nautical ($9.99)
“This collection is for women in a sunshine state of mind,” said Founder and Creative Director Essie Weingarten, about the brand’s Summer 2013 Collection. This blue-green teal marine polish is perfect for sailing away on a thrilling adventure this season.
