Longer days, warmer temps and blooming flowers can only mean one thing: summer is almos here! For nail enthusiasts everywhere that means trying out some fresh polish shades. Take a peek at the top three hues to add to your collection and let your nail creativity take flight.


The Pantone 2017 Color of the Year represents renewal and fresh foilage. Perfect for pairing with earthy browns or dusty jewel tones, the green shade is a brighter take on the olive and emerald hues that ruled the fall and winter runways, but is still wearable for every day.

This universally flattering hue is more playful than traditional brick red and easier to wear than bold orange. Polish your tips and toes with the fiery shade, and top off your look with a matching lip.


Try: OPI Living On the Bula-vard!
