My Favorite Nail Polishes for Summer

Summer Nail Polishes

Summer is in full swing! I meant to post this a few days ago, but I’ve been so busy it completely slipped my mind! It’s not to late, however, to rock these great summer shades on your fingers and toes.

Essie — DJ On Board

Essie - DJ on Board

What a great purple! DJ on Board is a fantastic newer color from the Essie lineup that works so well with summer because of its fuchsia shimmer. The first time I ever wore this polish was on my toes, and I received a lot of compliments and inquiries about it. Such a purple as this is eye-catching and it’s perfect for the beach or the hottest night spot.

OPI — Coca-Cola Red. 

OPI - Coca-Cola Red

Why wouldn’t this OPI color be on the list? You may know I’m a bit obsessed with Coke, as it’s my favorite type of pop (I’m actually drinking one and wearing a Coke T-shirt as I type this – not planned by the way!), but Coca-Cola really fits as one of the best refreshing summer beverages (alcohol added or not!) and this red shade matches the brand’s signature can. It’s bright, bold, and hot, just like the season. Perfect.

Essie — In the Cab-ana 

Essie - In the Cab-ana

To me, this color by Essie screams tropical waters, beaches, and palm trees. In the Cab-ana is one of my favorite polishes in my entire collection. I wear it all year round, but it works best in the summertime and really pops against tanned skin. I’ve also seen many summer brides wear a shade like this as their “something blue.”

Zoya — Dixie

Zoya - Dixie

Dixie is one of my newest nail polishes, and I currently am wearing it on my toes. Zoya has made the dreamiest shade of pink, and it makes me think of sunsets and watermelon. I also love the creamy formula of this one, because I typically only need one coat on my nails for it to be opaque. Such a fun, spicy color!

Essie — Meet Me at Sunset

Essie - Meet Me at Sunset

I’m not usually one for orange colors, as it typically clashes with my skin tone, Meet Me at Sunset should be a summer staple when it comes to nail polishes. I mean, look at that burnt orange! And just think of the pretty things you could do if you combined this and Dixie for a gradient effect! Summer needs to last longer in Michigan.

So now that we’ve covered summer, which polishes were your favorites? Leave me some comments and let me know your own go-to summer shades!
