I always change up my nail polish colors and do things a little differently in the summer months. I feel that I want to go with brighter, lighter colors for my summer manicure. I shorten my nails the tiniest bit, make sure I add a top coat for plenty of shine, and use a shiny nail polish that pops. When I’m out in the bright summer sun, I find myself admiring my nails more; do you think that’s because the summer days are longer and brighter, or because I change up the color? I don’t know – and it really doesn’t matter – but I do enjoy choosing new summer nail polish.
My first new one is Rio nail polish by Nailtiques. I love this bubble gum pink color. If I want to be subtle (and I never do!) I go with one coat, and if I want to wow ‘em, (which I do!) I go with two. It’s a fun color with a lot of shimmery shine, and the top coat makes it really glossy. You can practically start fires with the gleam that comes from this color. And as a bonus, it’s a two in one treatment and color that makes your nails stronger and healthier. How great is that? Beautiful color and cover, and it’s good for your nails, too.
I also love Shanghai nail polish by Nailtiques. It’s the same two in one treatment and color that adds protein to your nails and makes them stronger. It’s a beautiful, bright peachy-pink color. Lovely. This is a really vivid color, so I sometime use only one coat. It covers completely, and still gives you that glistening summer color you want.
