46 Best Nail Polish Colors For Spring/Summer

//46 Best Nail Polish Colors For Spring/Summer

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.

#1: NUDE

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.

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.

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?

PS: Don`t forget to be fab!!!
