Hello, loves! Before I just dive into the post, I'd like to introduce myself. I'm Andy. I am completely in love with makeup, and I decided to create this blog for two reasons: to share my love of makeup and to kill the summer boredom! Now, onto the actual post!
I am absolutely mental about nail polish! I paint my nails every Sunday, and I have built up quite the collection of colors. I thought I would share the top five colors that I love for summer.
|L-R: Teal the Cowboys Come Home, Cajun Shrimp, The More the Merrier, Strawberry Margarita, Mint Candy Apple|
First off is "Teal the Cowboys Come Home" by OPI. I love this color because it is such a great shimmery blue. It is nice because it doesn't sparkle, but it shines with an incandescent sort of glow. It is a darker blue, but the shimmeryness makes it a great summer color!
Next is "Cajun Shrimp" by OPI. This is a reddy, coral color. It is great for the feet when you want a pop of color on your toes to show through your open-toed shoes. I love coral, but being fair-skinned can make it hard to wear sometimes, but I don't find that this color looks funny with my skin tone at all.
"The More the Merrier" by Essie is the newest addition to my ever-growing nail polish collection. (I plan on doing a post about all the items I just bought for the summer, so stay tuned!) I don't have a good green color, so I was really excited about seeing this in Essie's new summer 2013 collection. I loved how it was almost lime, but not quite. It makes me think about picnics on golf courses. I can't wait to rock this color all summer long!
Another pinky color, "Strawberry Margarita" by OPI definitely makes the cut for great summer colors! I adore this bright pink. It is so girly and so much fun to wear. I personally believe that everyone needs a staple pink in her nail polish collection, and this is most certainly mine!
Last, but certainly not least, is "Mint Candy Apple" by Essie. This is my all-time favorite nail polish color! I am in love with the glorious, pastelly blue. It is light and happy and I always get so many complements when I wear it. In fact, I wore it a while ago to dance class, and everyone noticed it. Since then, two of the girls have bought the polish! This is a lighter color, but it is so bright that I would definitely recommend it for the summer.
Well, that's all five of my picks for a great summer nail polish. Leave a comment telling me what your picks are or letting me know what you think about mine!
