Spring is one of my favourite seasons. I like to see the nature reviving, trees and flowers blooming, the sun shinning. Even the people are happier when the spring is here, they smile more often and engage in a lot of great things. Also, the clothes are more beautiful and colorful in spring.
I love the colors that this season brings and I`m glad that now I can transpose them all on my nails.
This spring you can play with the colors, you can make your manicure with whatever shade you want because New York Fashion Week allowed us to wear any kind of nail shade: from neon to dark, from nude to nail effects. I am truly excited because I like to experiment, to try all sorts of shades. But enough talking, let’s see what are the 46 best nail polish colors for this spring/summer season.
Classy and elegant, nude is a very popular shade of nail polish. One of my favorites, and at New York Fashion Week spring / summer 2014 we were able to see it at DSquared2 and Michael Kors.
Black is a classic color, always in fashion. At New York Fashion Week was present at Georgio Armani.
Warm and cold, the color of freshness, mint is yet another popular color this season and I’m very happy because I love it.
#4: COBALT BLUE
A very good choice for the spring/summer season, cobalt blue is vibrant and brings a lot of energy to your manicure. Try different nail shapes and make it your own signature look.
A color that represents warmth and energy, yellow is a great shade for the warm days to come and therefore making this trend unmissable this year.
Although it is not a light color, the nail varnish is a beautiful shade. It is not necessarily a classic, but it brings a note of intrigue like no other nail polish.
Pink is a shade that will always remain en vogue and this season you can wear it with everything you want as designers show us numerous ways to wear every possible color combination.
Another popular color this season is melon. It doesn`t matter if it’s a pale shade or darker, if it`s melon, it’s trendy. Besides, the fruity shades are always winners in the heated months that are coming.
#9: RADIANT ORCHID
Pantone has designated this color to be the color of the year, so what better way to stay in trend that wearing it on your nails? Go radiant orchid and you will not miss the trends!

It is a beautiful, expressive tone, the perfect choice for a darker shade on your nails. What do you think about it?

This is all you need to know about the nail polish colors for this spring/summer season. I love them all and also I can`t wait to try them all. I`m happy that spring is here, summer is around the corner and I can play with the shades of nail polish.
If I were to choose between those shades, I couldn`t do it because all of them are wonderful, full of life. I tend to choose the nail polish in accordance to my mood, I don`t now why. Sometimes I love to have my nails done in pastel shades while other times I love to have them in darker shades.. that`s why I can`t say that I have a special shade that I like it. I just love them all! And the whole Estilo team loves these shades too!
Which is your favorite shade?
