During the winter, I stick to either dark purple polish (NARS Tokaido Express) or classic red (OPI Red). But when summer rolls around, it is time for color. I tend to keep to the pinks, reds, corals, and purples (I’m not terribly adventurous), but I’ve been trying a few new combinations that I wanted to share.
Pale Pink and Raspberry is a safe choice. It’s classic, yet fun. And if you work in a conservative workplace, it’s pretty without being too much. Rose Gold and sparkly Burgundy is a slightly more adventurous choice. If you’re looking for a regular gold polish, try this Essie As Good as Gold polish.
If you’re looking for a pairing that’s a bit bolder, red and coral is the way to go. These OPI shades are wonderful. If you’re looking for a polish that bridges the gap between coral and red, try Essie Geranium.
When I painted my nails last weekend, I decided to try something different by mixing this JinSoon dark teal polish with a shade that mixes shades of charcoal and pewter. It was a cool look. Modern, but sophisticated. I also like the idea of slate blue with pale grey.
Lastly, I love shades of purple together. These ashy violets will keep your fingers and toes happy. But if you want to indulge in the summer’s pale purple polish trend, my favorite hue is RGB’s Lavender polish.
What are your favorite polish colors for summer? I’m always looking for a new hue. Because my Instagram followers tell me that you can never have enough polish.
