Summer Nail Colors

If y’all are like me, every time I go in the nail salon I feel like I am having a midlife crisis because I can’t decide on the nail color I want.. and realistically, the color is only going to last, what, 2 weeks? so is it a big deal!? probably not… but wait.. in that moment, yes it is!!!!

and have you ever stopped and thought about how they come up with the names for these colors!? seriously though?? I would love to be in a room when they are deciding what they are going to name the new shade of pink, white, red, etc. some of them are so catchy, unique, & have nothing to do with the actual color lol — next time you are shopping for polish, just amuse yourself with the names! 😉

Here are some of my Top Picks! &

1. OPI “Funny Bunny” it’s the perfect white for summer!! && it’s my all time favorite color because of the pale white look it leaves on my nails.. not too white, not too clear though.. seriously, try it!  2. Essie “Muse Myself” perfect blend of oranges! love the tangerine color.. I think I might have to get this for my next shade 😉 3. Christian Louboutin “Batignolles” I love this shade of teal/green! reminds me of the ocean for some reason! 4. Essie “Peak Show” your go-to shade of pink!! I feel like it even has a hint of purple in it.. but I love!! 5. butter LONDON “Cheers!” & cheers it is.. I feel like having yellow on my nails would keep me smiling all the time! definitely not a bad thing 😉 6. Essie “Saltwater Happy” something about this shade of blue just does it for me… it’s so pretty, calm, & soothing? you with me? 7. Chanel “Monochrome” go grey or go home, they say! if that holds true.. this is your shade! 8. MAC “Sweet Potion” good neutral for summer! goes great with everything! 9. OPI “Italian Love Affair” this one is for all you pink gals!

GEL vs. ACRYLIC
We have so many options when it comes to getting our nails done. Do we want gel? Do we want gel on our toes? Do we want pink or do we want red? What type of pedicure would you like? Wait, are you sure you don’t want to do acrylic? I know it’s a battle for me every time I go to… so how do I decide? I normally turn to my roommate (we always get our nails done together) and I take her advice. She is a blue kinda girl and lately I have been digging it! I got My Pointe Exactly last time & have missed seeing it on my nails ever since I switched it up! It’s the perfect light shade of blue!
As far as gel and acrylic go.. I contemplate going back & forth but for little over a year now I have stuck to gel.. It just lasts longer and tends to not chip as easy.. however, I do miss how strong my nails were when I got acrylic. Either way, can you really go wrong?
