5 Great Nailpolishes for Summer

Summer is almost here and to get you in the mood, I thought I'd share with you my favorite summer nail polishes.  Summer is the time to go bold on your nails. Whether it be your fingers or your toes, these colors shout summer.

Zoya, Kimmy is an orange based red that's loaded with tons of sparkle.  Kimmy has a nice red base and tons of gold reflects. It's not a glitter polish, the finish is smooth and glossy.  Kimmy isn't subtle at all, she's a party waiting to happen.
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure, Coral Fever is a perfect coral polish.  I love the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure formula and Coral Fever didn't let me down.  It's a bright coral cream, but not obnoxiously so.  Coral Fever bridges the gap between the subtle peach tones of spring and the bright oranges of summer.

Essie, Trophy Wife screams summer.  It's an electric teal with a pearl finish.  Beautiful on your fingers it is an absolute knock out on your toes.  This is a color that works well with both cool and warm skin tones.
Essie, Watermelon is a bright pink cream finish polish.  Think of a really ripe juicy watermelon on steroids.  Essie describes it as a juicy red.  While I agree with it's juiciness, I see far more pink in it then red.  Just looking at the color makes my mouth water.

 Chanel, Mimosa is a bright sunny yellow.  Originally I was going to pass on this color, but every time I saw it, I had to pick it up.  As a rule I NEVER pay that much for nail polish, but for the sake of you, my readers, I made the sacrifice (aren't I great!). This is a yellow that looks best on warm skin tones.
You may have noticed that I'm haven't included any of OPI's new colors in my list and that's because I just can't get too excited about their summer release inspired by Pirates of the Caribbean.  The colors are nice but they certainly don't say summer to me. Not to say I didn't pick any of them up (3!).  I really love the silver Shatter!

Do you have a favorite polish, one that just screams summer?  Time to pull it out and get ready for the bright sunny days ahead.
