No matter when the warm summer weather arrives in your city, you can get a head start on welcoming it with some fresh nail polish. While your summer wardrobe can't be debuted until the temps rise, your nails can offer you a pick-me-up until then. Summer nail polish is a personal preference but something bright and cheery is always a good idea.
Whether you want to mix it up from your usual or you just need some inspiration, nail artist Monique Magnaye weighs in. She says that when clients are unsure what color to go with she likes to point them towards greens "because green always seems to have a quality that is grounding and also welcomes abundance." Her most favorite shade for summer as of late has been pistachio. Other shades she loves: vibrant chartreuse, light purple, and butter yellow.
On the flip slide, nail artist Christine Doan loves to have fun with her summer nails and opts for sheer, shimmery shades—reminiscent of jelly shoes—as well as color changing options.
