Best Summer Nail Polish Colors

Best Summer Nail Polish Colors

I will talk about best summer nail polish colors today. Which are perfect for me and which make you look tanned or just summer looking in general.

I think the best here are off-whites, that can really make look you tanned and hot reds, that pop amazingly through tanned skin. But I also have others such as turquoise, light blue, peachy and sparkly polishes.

So let’s take a look at some of my suggestions I have for you here.


Whites and Off-Whites

Best Summer Nail Polish Colors


1. L’Oreal – Nude Demoiselle    2.  Essie – Urban Jungle    3. Essie – Coconut Cove    4. Essie – Between The Seats

The off-whites are always great in the summer, because they go well with tanned skin. And they go very well even with my pale skin, so you basically can’t miss with them.

Peachy polish

1. Essie – Excuse Me, Sur    2. Cirque Colors – Lox And Sable    3. Essie – Peach Side Babe    4. Cirque Colors – Halcyon

These for me are perfect for summer nail art. They go really well with some sparkle over them and white polish under them to enhance and brighten them. You can see in the photos bellow, peachy nail art is great for summer.

Hot Reds

1. Avon – Tangfastic    2. Cirque Colors – Fire Island    3. Essie – Color Binge    4. Essie – Hiking Heels

Hot reds have always been the perfect shade on a hot summer day when you are on a vacation somewhere at the sea or at a pool. The orange hint in the red gives it a bit of edge and makes it so different from a classic red. It makes your tanned hands look like they are on fire. Perfect!

Light Blues

1.  Cirque Colors – Storm King     2.  Essie – Salt Water Happy     3.  Avon – Rain Washed     4. Bell Hypoallergenic – 07     5.  Dior – Bleuette     

6. Essie – Blue-La-La (I don’t have it swatched yet – it’s a part of Essie summer 2017 collection)

The light blues remind me of bright summer streets of old towns by the coast. White, bright and blue and they are perfect for the summer nail art.

Turquoise polish

5. Cirque Colors – Sencha (I don’t have a swatch of this one, but I did use it in this nail art as a sparkly addition)

The turquoise, to me this is the kind of color that reminds me the most of the sea water, the clear waters of the lagoons and small coves. Oh, I can’t wait for us to go to our summer vacation! And here are the polishes and some nail art I created with these shades.

1. Serum No 5 – Dragon     2. Cupcake Polish – Wishing Well by Lacquered Bits     3. Cirque Colors – Cin Cin     4. ILNP – Clockwork     5. ILNP – Fame

In the summer I use sparkly and holographic polish manly as an addition to nail art. Of course I wear it as a sole manicure too, but I prefer it as a bonus to the nail art. Here are my picks and I only have swatches of three of them.

    Čudoviti odtenki. Če bi šla na počitnice v Grčijo, bi zagotovo vzela enega modrega s sabo :). Drugače pa so meni najljubši za poletje zagotovo beli nohti, ker izstopajo od zagorele polti. Tudi tvoje oranžno rdeče izbire so mi zelo všeč. Jaz imam tudi rada kakšnega živo rumenega :).

    Odlična objava in čudovite izbire <3. L’Oreal Nude Demoiselle je na moji wl zaradi tvojih pohval že precej časa, pa se stalno izogibam ga dejansko vrečt v košarico čeprav točno vem, da bi ga ogromno nosila. Rain Washed je še eden na wishlisti zaradi tebe. Je čisto moj odtenek 🙂
