My Favorite Summer Nail Colors


Hello all! I’m back again with another post on my most used nail colors. I think summer is a great time to wear the brightest and most vivid neons I have. Here are a selection of the nail colors I’ve been wearing in the warm weather!

The nail polish at the beginning of the post is called Tahiti by Ulta3. I’m not actually sure if you can get this nail polish in the U.S. because I bought it back when I was studying abroad in Australia. I haven’t been able to find a link to it yet so my apologies. It is available in the Australian Ulta and I got it at Priceline. The color is a very bright neon orange. Do not wear this polish if you don’t want to glow in the dark! It does take quite a few coats and is never truly opaque so keep that in mind.

IMG_2364This next color is by a brand called Urban Vibe. I have no idea what the color is called because there is no label on the bottle (I know what you’re thinking, “Kate why can’t I buy any of these?” I’m sorry that I suck and keep old nail polish). It is a really nice reflective blue that reminds me of the ocean. If you’re looking for something more accessible I also really like Revlon Gel Envy in Wild Card for this color!


This cheerful purple is one of my favorites because it matches my alma mater’s colors. I find a straight purple like this looks better in the summer sun. The color is a Forever 21 nail polish in Plum. It doesn’t have the most beautiful formula but the color goes on for days and looks great after just 2 coats. I bought this one in California so it reminds me of sunny days and breezy times at Huntington Beach!


My final summer nail polish is a recent purchase at Sephora. It is a Formula X nail polish in the color Pyrotechnic. It is a nice red for any season, but it has a hint of brightness that screams summer for me. It reminds me of all the nice red/orange lipsticks out there this month. It takes a few coats to be opaque but it has good staying power, especially with a topcoat.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my color picks for summer nail polish! These colors will get a lot of use from me in the next month or so. Let me know what your favorite summer polishes are!

I also wanted to let you all know that I’m moving to Chicago on July 19th, so I won’t be replying to comments as quickly as usual. I have several posts queued up so there won’t be any pause in content but I wanted to share! Thanks for reading!
