Summer Nail Polishes

Cute summer dresses, perfectly curled hair and bright pink nail polish are not my things. While I love the summer heat between you and I, I still continue to wear all black even through the summer. On days I feel colorful I might wear some blue but most days it’s all black and grey for this girl. Staying true to my minimalist style but still injecting some “summer” into my look here are my summer favorite nail polishes.

Essie Cocktails and Coconuts
 I am so late to the natural nail polish party. I’m not going to lie I use to think they made hands look like mannequin hands and in some ways I still do. The trick to nude nails is the shade that contrasts with your skin tone. Essie’s Cocktails and Coconuts happens to perfect contrast for my pale skin! While it makes my hands look clean the slight shimmer makes the polish look interesting.

Essie Turquoise and Caicos
 This polish takes four coats to put on but that doesn’t take away the fact I gravitate towards this each summer. The jelly like formula and the perfect turquoise color make this summer must have in any polish collection. I just wish the formula was thicker but I guess that’s what gives it that cool jelly finish... This is what we call a polish brainteaser!

Essie Resort Fling
This was not an intended all Essie nail polish post but Resort Fling happened. Resort Fling is the perfect muted coral, but still coral . Because I wear so much black brighter corals can look a little orange which makes my overall outfit look a little Halloween-ie. If your not into the whole bright nail polish thing this is a great alternative.
