Pam’s Picks for Summer Nail Colors!

I have to admit that I’m in love with Essie nail polish right now!  Seriously, nail polish is the easiest and most inexpensive way to inject a shot of color into your look!  Ok…when it comes to nail polish I may have a wee bit of a problem….yes, there’s a drawer full of bottle because you just need that perfect shade!  Each season Essie comes out with fresh and fun new colors!!  Yet I was noticing lately that I keep rotating between four colors…some new and some classics that you just can’t beat!!!  And I keep a basic metallic close by to add accents!!  Gold is my go-to this summer.  Here are my summatime picks….


Summer 2013 Nail picks


From left to right…

  1. Good as Gold from the Mirror Metallics Collection – the perf metallic…not too yellowey gold
  2. Boom Boom Room from the Neon 2013 Collection – a bright cotton candy pink…a seriously happy color
  3. Who is the Boss from the Wedding Collection – a slightly muted, soft blue.  Looks fab with Good as Gold
  4. Tart Deco from the Art of Spring 2010 Collection – the best, freshest coral
  5. Mint Candy Apple from the Sweet Time of the Year 2009 Collection – brighter than Who is the Boss, a fun blue-green color

Locally, you can find Essie at Walmart, London Drugs, Real Canadian Superstore and Shoppers Drug Mart. I love that I can find Essie polishes just minutes from my house at Walmart and London Drugs at the new Highstreet open air shopping centre.

When I actually put all the bottles of nail polish out, I thought I might try them all….at one time!  Hey, it’s only nail polish and I change it every couple of days!  So, heck, I went for it and wouldn’t you know…I received a compliment on my mani within about 10 minutes of leaving my house!!
