Top 5 Summer Nail Polish Colors

Summer is one of my favorite seasons when it comes to nail polish! You can experiment with bright colors and going on a summer vacation is always an excuse to treat yourself to a mani/pedi. I mean… it's sandal season, so it's only necessary :) I like to get my nails done every few weeks with gel before a trip and regular nail polish if I want to change the color more frequently. I also love nail art (as you may already know!) but whether I'm getting gel or regular polish, I typically bring my own polish to the salon to ensure they have the color I want.

Honestly, nothing beats the feeling of leaving the nail salon with a fresh coat of polish on your nails, especially in the summer, so treat yourself! I linked below some of my favorite summer polish colors in both regular and gel version:

1. ESSIE LILACISM (Gel version, HERE)

2. OPI SANTA MONICA BEACH PEACH (Similar gel version, HERE)

3. BUTTER LONDON SWEETS (Similar gel version, HERE)

4. ESSIE ร‰CLAIR MY LOVE (Gel version, HERE)

5. SMITH & CULT KINGS & THIEVES (Similar gel version, HERE)

Comment below your go-to summer shade!

    Iยดm not a big nailpolish fan in summer because I haven’t enough time to let it dry ;) In the winter, when you are at home pretty early thereยดs so much time to do a little Nail Spa. But I love colored nails on other people, so thanks for showing is this nice color splash.

    I had never thought of bringing my own polish into the salon! What a clever way to ensure you are not disappointed with color options. I always seem to pick the wrong color and hate it after, but I love the colors I have at home!

    The light purple/lavender is one of my favorite colors for the summer too! <3 :) There's just something about pastel tones that make the perfect summer nail, don't you think?

    On my toes it’s OPI Pompei Purple always and my hands it’s most often OPI Flashbulb Fuchsia but really depends on what I’m going and wearing for the week.

    I never limit bright colours, I wear them all year round. I’m always a sucker for a bright red

    I don’t paint my nails very often; I’m too lazy to do it myself and I don’t usually want to spend money on getting it done, haha! But summer is always the season I want some color on my nails the most! These were some great recommendations! Essie’s Lilacism looks beautiful!
