The Best Summer Nail Polish Colors

One of the things about living in a dorm is that I don't have room to bring all of my nail polish with me to college (or maybe I just don't want to lose any...). Because of this, I split my nail polish collection in accordance to the seasons.

This is my abbreviated summer nail polish collection. Since there's only about 7 or 8 weeks left of summer, I chose my top 6 favorite summery polishes to bring to Chicago with me.

From left to right [links to my swatches]:
1. Essie "Pink Parka"
2. Essie "Orange, It's Obvious"
3. OPI "I Eat Mainely Lobster"
4. Essie "Peach Daiquiri"
5. Essie "Tour de Finance"
6. Sephora "Teeny Bikini"

I hadn't tried the OPI yet, so I decided to put it on today and see if it was the perfect coral my mom said it was. See, I kinda stole this bottle from her and brought it with me to college...I got a few angry texts from her about it.

Here's my swatch:


Sorry, but I will never be one of those bloggers who can hold the nail polish bottle like that while showing off their freshly painted nails. That's just too much coordination. My fingers can't handle that kind of flexibility, I guess, because that's as good of a picture as I could get!

What polishes are you loving right now?

    1. That's what I love about the neon trend for summer. You can wear brighter clothes than you ever have before and you're "in style"!

  5. I actually like the Sinful line at Target. I adore Sinful's mint apple. I'm a huge fan of the color turquoise so I love that for summer. I have a bubble gum pink that is also fun. I'm planning on trying a banana yellow soon. I'm following you back from the Aloha Friday blog hop--I see you are from my home town :). Have a great night.

  6. I'm a sucker for any fuchsia or orange in the summertime :) P.S I feel awkward trying to hold a nail polish bottle and take a picture whilst showing off my nails too - lacking in coordination :P
