Don’t you hate when you’re getting your nails done and can’t figure out what shade you should pick? I always try to figure out what events I have coming up and corresponding outfits I’m going to wear. I don’t want to get bright pink nails if I have an interview. What if there is a wedding? Blue nails don’t usually go with an off white summer dress. Until recently, I usually resorted to a neutral pink color or getting french tips just to be safe (so typical). Now days, I follow what colors seem to be “in” at the moment. You can’t go wrong with a nail color that swarming around Hollywood and appears in every magazine. It’s almost summer-That means fun in the sun, flip flops, and most importantly, pedis! For those of you who are about to get your nails done and trying to figure out what color you should go with, here are my 3 go-to nail colors for the summer:
PLAY IT SAFE: HIGH-GLOSS NUDES
Having high gloss(make sure it is high gloss to ensure it stands out) nude nails is a great way to add just the right about of pop to your hands. It gives off a subtle yet fresh look to your nails and can be worn with relatively anything!
HAVING A LITTLE FUN: LUSCIOUS LAVENDER
What’s great about lavender is that it’s a fun color that looks great on relatively ANY shade of skin! I love how this shade looks on me (very tan) and on my bff (pale). Lavender has been recently worn by many young celebs such as Whitney Port, Lauren Conrad, and Michelle Trachtenberg.
BEING BOLD: CRACKLE FUN
The idea of crackle nail polish is so fun and different from anything that’s been around! For those who don’t know what it is, it’s apart of the latest trend of topcoat nail polishes that can be worn over any shade. The topcoat breaks apart and makes the bottom coat visible through the cracks. You can have any shade from metallic colors(silver or gold) shine through or matte ones (pink, blue, green-get daring!). This trend is SO hot right now that some retailers (such as ULTA) are only allowing one bottle to be purchased at a time by customers. Go get yours while you can!
