There is little that excites me quite as much as summertime. The warmer weather, days and nights at the beach, and of course the bright vibrant colors that overtake my wardrobe and makeup routine. My favorite way to inject summer brights into my life is with nail polish. I find 10 seasonally spirited digits (20 if we’re talking a sandal day… which, is everyday) are a great way to bring a little neon from the boardroom to the beach in a snap! Here are our two favorite summer polish collections that will brighten up any day!
SpaRitual Summer 2014 Collection: Drift
Coming from a gal who grew up at the Jersey Shore, the colors of the SpaRitual Summer Drift Collection are undeniably beach-inspired. From the pale blues and greens of sea glass to the sand speckled sand dunes to the peachy-pink of the sky during sunset, Drift doesn’t miss a beat. The colors include Buoyant, a coral-peach cream; Barefoot, a sand-toned shimmer; Blue Lagoon, an ocean blue cream; Sea Glass, an appropriately named green shimmer; On the Dunes, a pale gold shimmer; and Low Tide, a turquoise cream (and my personal fave!). $12 each, sparitual.com
OPI’s Go Neon or Go Nude Collection
Featuring a bright, vibrant neon shade in nearly every color (sans blue) the OPI Go Neon or Go Nude collection is a current seasonal must for me. I love that by using the white base coat each of the colors pops just a little bit more! My fave has got to me Life Gave Me Lemons, a bold neon yellow which pairs phenomenally with a tan! $9 each; ulta.com
