Neutral

Forget sheer nudes and girly pale pinks — this year is all about the sexy, creamy ’70s beige. It should be totally opaque, warm in tone, and shiny.

Glitter Everywhere

Bejeweled and sparkly is how I love everything- shining bright like a diamond.

Stripes

Nautical stripes scream Summer. But instead of the traditional stripes, try something trendy like a twist on a classic French (like the one pictured below).

Mellow Yellow

There’s just something so exhilarating about a luminescent yellow hue. Whether we can attribute this to the inevitable summer flashbacks that ensue on sight, or the ability to brighten up any mood, we’re all in favor of being sun-kissed by this shade.

White

White manicures have become a classic summer staple. And this year, it’s no different. OPI’s Alpine Snow is by far the purest white you can find.
