Summer is right around the corner and it’s time to flaunt your toes in sandals. Today is National Nail Polish Day, a chance to bathe your flawless claws in the most dazzling colors under the sun. Essie has deemed June 1 as the official day to rock and celebrate your nails and we’re 100% on board!
Dressing your nails is a subtle way to make a fashion statement. Revel in cutting your finger fangs into various shapes such as almond, ballerina, lipstick, stiletto or squoval. Do not forget to add a pop color for a glamorous look. Essie has tons of modern lacquers to get you in the summer mood: Resort Fling, Bikini So Teeny, On The Roadie, Meet Me at Sunset or Fruit Sangria.
Some of the sassiest 2017 summer trends for nails include bold bright colors and soft metallics. It’s pretty fair to say a great manicure is a conversation starter. Just imagine being out of town and meeting a new friend. You shake their hand and bam! they see your Natalie Minerva inspired nail style. Natalie Minerva, the founder of nailswag.com, has trendy artistic looks all over her Instagram showcasing the luxury of nail polish at it’s best. Or you can go simple, nothing wrong with a plain bold color such as bright blues from Deborah Lippmann or bright pink from JINsoon. Simplistic nail styles are charming and complimenting to your summer wardrobe. Read on for our fav colors to add to this season’s beauty bliss and create a fashion statement…on your nails!
We like to refresh our look by wearing something bright and yellow is always the way to go. This eye-popping color is on trend with the top fashion looks for SS’2017. OPI’s hard yellow nail lacquer is flattering on all skin tones.
Bright green is a slick way to pull off the neon look for the less bold. This shade screams summer and reminds us of fresh cut grass. Not to mention, it just happens to be the Pantone Color of the Year.
Why not frolic in the beautiful waters with your toes as bright as the sea? I like adding shiny blue polish for a simple yet gazing fashion statement.
Ultraviolet pinks are it! Want to let your finger fangs sing during those summer concert nights, wear a loud shade of pink.
Orange is a compliment to summer. Wearing orange paints a tropical image and overall provides a healthy look to your skin like Vitamin C.
This baby pink is a lovely transition from the spring’s pastels into a delicate summery style. We love soft pink as an alternative to nude and NARS nails it with this classy, fresh hue.
Feeling a little bit disco? Metallics were hot around New Year’s Eve and the color is still in style for the summer. This is the new neutral and surely to take your look from basic to extraordinary.
On the topic of nails, we’re on the lookout for Niecy Nash’s new series “Claws” on TNT, premiering June 11. Get ready to laugh about the hilarious things nail artists deal with on a daily basis. Let’s get festive this month and continue to celebrate colorful nails all month long! What does your favorite nail polish shade say about you?
