Pretty Summer Nail Polish

For the new season, try out a new shade.

  • Gina Way
When you’re investing time in a proper pedicure, complete with color, why not take a break from neutrals? Instead, celebrate sandal season with a more unexpected shade. Polish that contrasts with your skin really shows off your feet. Dark shades look great on fair skin, softer colors stand out on dark skin, and summer brights flatter every skin tone. Try one of these pretty options.
