With each new season comes a new beauty trend and a new color palette. Summer is all about brights, neons, yellows, and other warm colors. Though trends may change, a pop of color on your nails is always in style, and summer is one of the best seasons for nail polish. It's time to experiment with brighter, bolder hues while your tips and toes are on display.
What are the best nail polish colors for summer 2014? Higher end brands like Dior are more expensive, but the quality is well worth the heftier price tag, and the bright colors are extremely rich. Less expensive brands, such as Sally Hansen, offer shades in a quick-dry formula, great for a color update when you're out on your summer travels. Brands like Essie, OPI, and China Glaze fall in the middle of the price range and have hundreds of colors and varieties to choose from.
China Glaze offers many sparkle choices, and Essie has their own neon line, which is perfect for summer. Layer these brights over a white base to really make them pop, or add sparkles to another shade on the list below.Vote up the top nail polish colors for summer 2014 below and get ready to sparkle, shine, and shimmer for summer.
Essie - Guchi Muchi Puchi
If you prefer a more subtle summer shade, look to Guchi Muchi Puchi (one of the more ridiculous nail polish color names). It's great if you work in a more conservative office environment as well.
Dior - Bonheur
Bonheur is the perfect pop of summer pink. Part of Dior's new "Vernis Gel Shine and Long Wear" formula, this color will last for weeks without chipping, so you won't have to worry about reapplying.
Butter London - Fiver
A cool mint to match your mojito. Sometimes in summer, you want a cooler shade. This mint is best when layered over a white base - otherwise it goes on opaque and will need a few coats.
