Summer is almost over, but it doesn't mean that we have to ditch our brights for darker, fall colours. And since we loooove colour, we’ve rounded up (and colour-tested along the way) seven perfect bright nail shades for you to try.
Dreaming of the mermaid life? Splash into this bright blue-teal shade from Ceramic Glaze, aptly called Mermaid’s Tale. If this brand—or this shade, for that matter—hasn’t made its way into your polish repertoire, you’re seriously missing out because this electric blue screams sunny days. $11, available at Shoppers Drug Mart.
Why not add a little luxury to your polish rotation, with this perfect pink, Chanel's Le Vernis in Pink Tonic? This quintessential magenta hue is a real winner and will last you through September and into the colder months when your brain needs a pink-fueled pick-me-up. $27, chanel.ca.
It’s impossible to not rock one bright OPI shade or another. This zesty lemon-lime yellow-green lacquer in Life Gave Me Lemons has hit shelves so you can be sure to blind all onlookers (in the best way possible) with this highlighter-inspired anything-but-dull polish. $11, available at professional salons nationwide.
Have an extra slice of lemon meringue pie without the extra cals with the bright and sunny China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Sun Upon My Face. This happy yellow is anything but mellow and is sure to make a statement. $8, nailpolishcanada.com.
Cult favourite Essie's summer Neon collection will keep you smiling as the weather gets cooler. The collection is complete with six bright and cheery polishes, including the pretty purple Sitting Pretty. Paint on a couple coats of this bright violet for a sweet (but totally party-ready) hue or put over a white base for an extra purple pop. $10, available at professional salons nationwide.
Textured nails are still going strong, and with that in mind, we had to put won’t-break-the-bank GOSH Frosted Nail Lacquer on this list. Their sea foamy-mint shade Soft Green will be the perfect antidote to all of the in-your-face highlighter shades. $8, available at Shoppers Drug Mart.
