Summer Must Haves: Nail Polish Picks

Hey guys! I know it's super late in the season, but I decided to go ahead and share with you my summer nail polish picks. I chose 10 polishes that I love using in the summertime. I am not going to go into a big long intro. Let's just get on with the polish picks!  I will post photos of the polishes on my nails where possible, and otherwise, I'll do a picture of a swatch from my swatch wheel!

1. Julep Eileen- a simple white polish is fantastic in the summer. I love the look of stark white nails. I have a few white polishes, but my current fave is Jule's Eileen. It applies smoothly, if a little thick and is opaque in just one coat!

2. Sinful Colors 24/7- This is a nice bright neon pink. It's super affordable. Sinful colors polishes are just 2 dollars at your local drugstore. And this is the PERFECT neon polish for summer. It dries to a matte finish, as most neons do, so if you want a shiny finish you have to add a top coat. This polish is opaque in 2-3 coats and makes you look super tan- a summer must!

3. China Glaze Monte Carlo- This is one of the latest polishes in my collection and I am absolutely obsessed with it. It's a bright blue toned pink that leans almost purple. I wish I had gotten this earlier in the summer because I feel like this would be all I put on my toes all season! This polish applies like a dream. I had no issues at all, other than the fact that it takes three coats to be opaque. But it dries quickly, so that's really no issue at all!

4. China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy-Here's another neon that I love in the summer. This is one of the most unique neon nail polishes on the market today, in my opinion. It's a coral neon! This is another one that makes me look super tan, which of course, makes me happy in the summer. This one requires a top coat, but it's stunning, and I love it!

5. Wet n Wild Megalast Club Havana- It wouldn't be a summer polish picks post without an orange polish. Orange is one of those colors that I think people tend to shy away from because its not as easy to pull off as pink or red. But orange is a color that I definitely embrace in the summer. Club havana is a bit muted compares to some brighter oranges in my collection, which makes it easier to pull of, and it goes well with my skin tone! The megalast formula of polishes is great! Most of them cover in one coat, and the brush is thick and flat and makes it super easy for application!

6. Wet n Wild Megalast Heatwave- This is the perfect summer red. It's sort of a poppy red with some orange undertones. I love it! It's a gorgeous cream polish and has the same awesome brush and formula of all the other megalast polishes. This one might be my favorite megalast polish that I own, and I own quite a few!!

7. Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Mint Sorbet- You might think that mint is much more of a spring color than a summer color. I disagree. I think it's one of those nail polish shades that works all year round. The sally hansen Xtreme Wear formula is awesome, and they are super affordable, at about $2.50 a bottle. This is the perfect mint shade. It applies opaque in one coat, and it's absolutely gorgeous!

8. Sinful Colors Endless Blue- This is the perfect summer blue in my opinion. It's a bright rich royal blue, and it's stunning. It applies really nicely and is opaque in 2 coats. It's so bright and shiny and you almost don't even need a top coat. I think the name, Endless Blue, is perfect for this polish. Don't you agree?

9. Revlon Gold Coin- I feel like I include this polish in my polish picks every season, and that's because it's such a versatile polish! I love metallics all year round and this gold metallic shade is perfect for summertime! Gold coin is one of my all time fave polishes. I can't say enough good things about it. It's affordable, opaque in one coat and it's just beautiful. I wear it quite often as an accent nail with a brighter color. I love that look, and I love this polish! I highly recommend it!

10. Revlon Girly- The last polish is one that isn't my typical summer pick, but I just love it. It's a ton of glitter in pink, purple and blue in a light pinky-purple base that is just gorgeous. I don't know if it's because I just got this one not too long ago or what but I have been wearing it a ton this summer and I love it! The base f this polish isn't opaque, so this is best layered on top of another polish. But it's gorgeous, and my final polish pick for summer.
