It’s no secret that one of my necessities in life is perfectly manicured nails. I have my technique down to a tee including every product and tool I use. I rarely go to get manicures except in rare cases such as last weekend, and my nails were chipped by Monday. I don’t leave my house with chipped nails. Fun fact: I once cancelled a first date because my nails were chipped. Might sound crazy, in fact I know it sounds crazy, but I like to present myself with my best
foot nails forward.
Today I want to share my go-to nail colors for summer. I’d love to pretend I’m that person who constantly has a ton of new fun colors on their nails, but I’m not. Of course, I switch it up and will wear a different color here and there, but they usually only last for a few days tops. 99.9% of the time you will see me wearing 1 of these 5 shades for the next 4-5 months. Here we go!
1. That’s Berry Daring– This is a great raspberry shade that is creamy and smooth to apply. This color is probably by all time favorite color to wear when I’m tan. I feel like when my skin is sunkissed this color compliments it perfectly. Don’t get me wrong though, I wear this shade tan or no tan!
2. Elephantastic Pink– After searching for years for the perfect pink shade, I finally found this little guy a few years ago. I can’t get enough. I love that it’s a real pink color without looking too neon, bright, or barbieish (not a word). It’s a color that shows you’re feeling summery, but that you could still wear in a business meeting. Best pink on the block!
3. I Love Applause– This color is from the OPI Muppets Collection and it’s UH-MAZING! Seriously, it’s such a great super light pink color. You need it.
4. Live. Love. Carnival.– This shade from the Brazil Collection is a nice creamy orange color. Can we say summertime and sunshine? Oh yes!
5. Suzi Shops & Island Hops– This light pink is from the Hawaii Collection that came out earlier this year. It’s pinker than I Love Applause, but still light and a neutral for everyday wear. This is a great option when you’re in the mood for a color, but don’t want anything too bold.There you go, my favorite nail polish shades for summer. I’m not going to lie, I’ve worn three of these colors this week already!
