Nail Your Summer Manicure!

Bibi Correa, Freshman

Get ready to bring on the shorts and suntan lotion because summer has arrived! If anybody is ready for warm weather, it’s definitely us East Coasters (after being buried in snow for what seems like forever, who can blame us?). Busting out your shorts and bikinis, I bet you haven’t thought of that perfect nail color to match, have you? If not, don't sweat it-- I’ve got you covered.

Warm weather equals pastels, and if you haven’t found the perfect pastel then you’re in luck because I have.

Personally I think that Essie has the best nail selection, ever-- Mint Candy Apple, Bikini So Teeny, Lilacism, Minimalistic, et cetera-- each going at about $8.50 a pop. Honestly there are so many colors it’s hard to pick just one; my bank account takes a serious plunge each time I splurge.

For a cheaper option, try the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri nail polish, ranging from about $3.98-$5.00. It works wonders, and though it doesn't dry in 60 seconds, it does dry fairly quickly. My personal favorites are the Blue-Away, and Pink Blink.

These are just a couple of my favorite colors, but with your creativity, who knows what can happen? What's your favorite shade this season?
