Say goodbye to the pastel polishes of spring. As the temperature rises, we’ll be wearing bright, bold and gorgeous hues on our fingers and toes. Here are our picks for the prettiest polishes this summer.
Vibrant and flashy is the name of the game here. And what better season than summer to try out neon nails? Celebs like Katy Perry and Eva Mendes recently sported this eye-popping trend on the red carpet with their yellow and orange hues. Think of these wild nail polishes as an accessory – just a touch of colour paired with a monochrome outfit, and you’re ready to go!
We’re also loving polish that’s inspired by summer weather – namely, aqua and turquoise hues. Kristen Stewart wowed us at the MTV Movie Awards with a metallic mini and her standout aqua nails. Opt for blue shades with a touch of green – a flattering colour on everyone (try Chanel’s new polish, ‘Nouvelle Vague’). Chances are you’ll be in and out of the water, too, during the warm months. That’s why it’s important that you apply (and reapply!) a clear, top coat every other day to keep your mani looking fresh. Lastly, keep your hands and feet looking – and feeling – gorgeous by using a gentle scrub once a week. Prancing around barefoot never looked better!
