As my birthday week begins (I’m finally twenty on Saturday!), my annual treat-yourself spree begins. Which means that I can definitely see a mani-pedi in my future. I dug around for some more summer nail trends to share with you all that you can bet I’m trying this week.
To remind you of the blue-capped hillside of Santorini you’re dreaming of from your desk. There’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to see that gorgeous hue everytime you look at your hands on the keyboard!
1. Essie Mesmerized, Target ($7.99). 2. Bobbi Brown Navy, Bobbi Brown ($18). 3. Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear Blue It, Amazon ($2.63). 4. Yves Saint Laurent Bleu Majorelle, Sephora ($25). 5. Jin Soon Iris, Henri Bendel ($18). 6. Orly Mineral FX Stone Cold, Beauty.com ($10). 7. Spa Ritual Osmium, Beauty.com ($8.40).
Pink is a classic for nails year-round but the hotness of these shades transitions the color into summer. For nail art bonus points, pair with the following shade in our trends count.
1. Essie She’s Pampered, Beauty.com ($8). 2. Butter London Cake Hole, Nordstrom ($15). 3. OPI A Definite Moust-Have, Ulta ($9). 4. NARS Schiap, Sephora ($19). 5. Tom Ford Indian Pink, Bloomingdales ($32). 6. Bobbi Brown Pink Valentine, Barneys ($18). 7. RGB Pink, Net-A-Porter ($18).
Orange was never a color I thought for nails until this season – there are so many gorgeous options! Perfect for a little added heat on the tips of your nails (not that you need it in the middle of July! Phew!).
1. Essie Vermillionaire, Nordstrom ($8). 2. Le Metier de Beaute Clockwork Orange, Neiman Marcus ($18). 3. Butter London Jaffa, Butter London ($15). 4. Zoya Arizona, Zoya.com ($8). 5.

NAIL ART MOMENT:
I have not been able to stop dreaming of “Blue Tiki” nails done by San Francisco nail artist Mia Rubie for Sephora’s trend blog The Glossy. They are perfectly trendy with the bright blues and oranges in the tribal print. I need to fly to San Francisco, like, now!
