Summer Nail Polish Favourites!

 Hey everyone,
So, pretty much every season I like to pull together the nail polishes I've been most frequently reaching for during that particular season and share them with you guys.  I realized that I hadn't done one for summer yet, and since it is already almost the middle of July, I thought I better jump on that.  Today I have 6 gorgeous mainly bright polishes to show you! 

From L-R: Sephora by OPI: How Cute is That?, Island Girl: Island Heat, Essie: Cute as a Button, Sugar Daddy, Turquoise & Caicos, E-nuf is E-nuf

My first favourite is Island Heat, which is a stunning neon medium pink with a matte finish.  It looks like a true medium pink in the bottle, but once applied, it has kind of a metallic blue undertone.  This shade is just so bright, fun and screams carefree summer nights!  I really like to wear this shade on my fingernails and toenails!

Sephora by OPI's How Cute is That? is a beautiful 'vintage coral' shade with a gold shimmer.  I always have the hardest time describing this shade because in certain lighting it has a more orange undertone and in other lighting it has a more pink undertone.  I love to wear this on my fingernails, not so much on my toenails though. 

 Essie E-nuf is E-nuf looks more red toned in this photo, but is a great subdued creamy orange-red coral shade.  It's so bright and cheerful, and absolutely perfect for the season!  I love to wear this on both my finger and toe nails!

 Cute as a Button is a colour that only recently hit my collection, but has already become a favourite for summer.  It's a beautiful almost hot pink shade and I love to wear this especially on my toenails.  I'm currently wearing it on both my finger and toenails and I just love it so much.  This shade is also a dupe for Butter London's Trout Pout, so if that's out of your price range, this is a great dupe for it!  

You may notice that this is the only sheer, neutral shade out of the 6 I selected.  Sugar Daddy is a beautiful sheer baby pink colour that is great if you want something a little less bold, like if you're going to an interview for a summer job and don't want to wear a crazy nail shade.  I don't have Essie's Fiji yet, but that shade is everything I wished Sugar Daddy was, and it would most likely replace this shade as a favourite if I had it. 

Last, but by no means least, is the very famous Turquoise and Caicos.  It's a gorgeous teal shade...very similar shade to a Tiffany's box, only slightly more turquoise.  This is such a fantastic beachy shade for both your fingernails and especially your toes!
