THE HOTTEST NAIL POLISH TRENDS OF SUMMER 2014

When you think of summer nails, inevitably pretty pastels and bright corals come to mind. Classic summery colors. Safe bets. There are SO many fun new colors and top coats that have come out this season, though. Why not think outside the box and give one of the new trends a try? Read on to discover what we’re obsessing over right now!

Vibrant, shocking neons are a major trend this season. Get on board with fun colors like OPI’s You Are So Outta Lime or Essie’s I’m Addicted. For a more classic bright, we’re loving Essie’s Too Taboo.

It seems like people have slightly tired of wild designs on their nails, but unique top coats have been coming out in full force. Some favorites include Essie’s Sparkle on TopButter London’s Matte Topcoat and MAC’s Shadow Top Coat, which creates a cool smoky effect.

Another fun trend this summer is bright blue – especially on your toes! Try Essie’s Strut Your Stuff or Deborah Lippmann’s Video Killed the Radio Star.

Go against the grain by going dark this summer! Purple is a beautiful shade that surprisingly works year round. Some favorites include MAC x Proenza Schouler’s DayflowerDior’s Mirage (which is gel-like AKA super long-lasting and shiny) and Deborah Lippmann’s fun Flash Dance.

We predicted it at the start of the year and it looks like our forecast was correct: nude is in. The classic hue is ladylike, chic and works with any outfit or occasion. Try Essie’s Urban JungleMAC x Maleficent’s Uninvited or LVX’s d’Orsay.
