SUMMER NAIL FAVORITESSeptember 08, 2015
As we approach the last bits of Summer, most of us flip that neon to neutral switch as soon as Starbucks unveils Pumpkin spice. To wrap up all those summer memories, I thought I'd talk a little about all the wonderful shades of summer. Summer nails that is. What is it about a fresh, bright colored manicure to make you feel like a sun kissed mermaid brushing her hair with a dinglehopper?
L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Polish in Butterfly Kisses - If you've been a blog reader or Instagram follower, you've seen this shade at least once a week. No matter how many times I try out another shade, I constantly keep coming back to this. Fall shades aside, I feel like this will be made into an all year color. If it's shade doesn't blow you away, then it's superior quality and price tag sure will!
Michael Kors Nail Varnish in Whisper - I purchased this shade on a whim while browsing through Nordstrom Rack . I'd never owned a Michael Kors polish and in my past experiences, designer labels on nail polishes don't make them automatically amazing. (psst, they usually suck). I was more than shocked when this beat all expectations. It was opaque, creamy, and durable. I was suckered in by the lilac shade, but the quality hooked me. Since this is the only Michael Kors polish I've ever purchased, I can't say if they are all great, but if you stumble upon Whisper, I'd pick it up!
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Get Mod - Every girl needs a white polish in her collection. What was once considered "white out nails" (Joshua still calls them that) is now one of the biggest nail trends to grace Pinterest. I for one, am not complaining. Something about a perfect opaque white really makes you look clean, and put together. I have purchased a handful of shades over the years, but this one is by far the easiest to work with. If you've ever used a Sally Hansen polish, you know they are known for their wide, flat brush. Just one stroke and BAM your nail is covered.
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Sugar Fix - Months ago, I saw my girl Stephanie rock this lovely blue and I knew I had to have it. Low and behold the day my obsession for this shade began. Not only is it one of the most stunning shades of blue I've ever seen, it's blue, so technically I can wear it all winter long and be seasonally appropriate!
