I have hundreds of nail polish bottles but very few pop, summery colors – I prefer dark colors that contrast with my pale hands skin and that I find more chic : burgundy, navy blue, dark green, dark grey, chocolate brown… Still, I sometimes love some vivid shades so much that I buy them on the spot – this weakness for cosmetics is what\’s allowing me to share a small selection of nail lacquers I don\’t wear often when it\’s not bright and sunny but that I\’ll probably wear all summer long.
ORLY – Ancient Jade
Ancient Jade is my favorite out of the four, a pastel mint color I love to match with white clothes. It\’s a soft, feminine color that I could definitely use in a geometric black and white stamping nail art (I should totally try that).
ORLY – Teal Unreal
The first time I saw Orly\’s Teal Unreal, I fell in love – the color is more accurate on the nail pictures than on the bottle pictures. It\’s a real good teal, not just any turquoise like the bottle might suggest. Despite the small brush of Orly nail polishes, it\’s really easy to apply and fast-drying (and its 18 mL is appreciated !).
PIERRE RENE PROFESSIONAL – Sunny
This is perfectly named. Sunny is a bright yellow Pierre René Professional polish that reminds me of the beach and that\’s opaque in two, three coats. I just feel great when I see this color, I\’m just afraid of attracting insects because of how vivid it is.
ESSIE – Haute in the heat
Haute in the heat was part of the Summer 2014 collection but it\’s still in my faves for 2016 : its pop color puts me in a good mood, its brush is really large and easy to use and it\’s really fast drying. Everything\’s great about it – I\’d love to try out their new Gel Couture nail polishes too.
I\’m crazy about all four of these nail polishes with their bright and beautiful colors – I always know what clothes I\’m going to match them with – or not match them with, a matching outfit/manicure is so has been. What is your favorite nail polish in this selection and what is your favorite nail polish for the summer ? Tell me everything !
