Can I just say — this red-orange, firey gloriousness of a nail polish is giving me all the summer vibes. The color is the perfect bold nail color for the summer months.

Essie’s “Pass-port To Sail”

On a completely different route from the nail color above, Essie’s “Pass-port To Sail” is the neutral nail color of Summer 2018. Everyone knows Essie’s formula is one for the history books and they have debatably the most killer color selection. When in doubt of what colors are in, look to Essie and you’ll have the seasons hottest nail colors. This color is from their Spring 2018 collection (hint: Go buy it now before it’s gone!), but I can guarantee that this color will impress all your friends throughout the Summer, too. It’s a beige-grey that compliments a wide range of skin tones. Plus it’ll go with any outfit. Win, win!

O.P.I. Nail Lacquer’s “That’s Hula-rious!”

I love a good pastel and this pastel green is the perfect way to rock a unique color that is still subtle. I’m normally not one to wear green nail polish, the light pastel green is very wearable. One great thing about pastels, in general, is that it makes you look a little bit tanner, at least in my opinion. The gorgeous shade along with O.P.I.’s killer formula makes this a go-to nail color this Summer.

Sally Hansen Complete Manicure’s “Black And Blue”

This is one for my adventurous girls out there. This color gives me all the mermaid vibes and I am here for it. This truly unique color is blue-green-turquoise iridescent shade that is bound to get you plenty of compliments. Personally, I love using this on my toes. It’s a little edgy, but the iridescence makes it bright and fun. And the Sally Hansen Complete Manicure formula is one of my favorites and the brush itself is by far my favorite of any drugstore brand. So for all my edgier gals, this is the summer nail color for you.

O.P.I. Nail Lacquer’s “Polly Want A Laqcquer?”

Looking for a pastel with a little more oomph? Look now further than O.P.I.’s “Polly Want A Lacquer?” This gorgeous light purple shade is absolutely stunning. It has the softness of a pastel, but the color is rich in pigment, giving an unexpected pop of color. I wore this in Miami and absolutely loved it. It has amazing staying power and is quick and easy to apply. I guarantee you’ll love this nail color this Summer.
