When it comes to summer style, some of the staples that first come to mind are a chic bikini, breezy sundress, and great pair of sandals. But one of the most important accessories for summer is a perfect manicure and pedicure. We’ve picked the hottest polish colors and products to get your hands and feet looking their best this summer.
For the natural girl who likes a subtle, sheer shade, Essie’s Petal Pink is the perfect pale neutral. For more coverage, we also love Steady as She Rose, a pretty pale pinkish-purple, from OPI’s new “Pirates of the Carribean” collection. The chic Skull and Glossbones light gray is another easy-to-wear favorite.
If you’re looking for beachy brights, we love Essie’s Mod Squad pink. Too Too Hot from its new Braziliant collection is the perfect red with a hint of coral. (It looks great with a tan!) We’re also obsessed with the nautical-inspired Smooth Sailing, a light denim blue with just the right amount of sparkle. Teal nail polish is on-trend right now, so the matte Turquoise and Caicos by Essie is a great choice. Our Founder Melissa Meyers is sporting Lilacism,a bright Lilac, as her pedicure color of choice this summer.
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polishes have unique flat brushes that allow polish to go on smoothly and effortlessly, perfect for anyone who finds that her self-applications tend to be either streaky or bubbly. There are tons of great colors to choose from, such as Casting Call, a flattering pink coral for cool skin tones, or Fever, an orange coral ideal for warm skin tones.
If you’re a fan of classic red, Sally Hansen’s Runway Red-y can’t be beat, and neither can the drugstore prices! Both of these shades are summer limited editions (available at drugstores nationwide).
It’d be impossible to write a round-up of the best nail polish shades without including a product by Chanel. The intriguing Paradoxal is the perfect shade of deep purple (with a hint of sparkle that is only visible in direct light). This is a great color for all seasons.
A few new nail products have come out recently making at-home mani-pedis super easy. You can get a professional finish at home with Kiesque Liquid Palisade. It looks like lavendar liquid eyeliner, and you put it wherever you don’t want polish. It works as a shortcut for French manicures or trendy half-moon styles, or you can just put it on your cuticles and around your nail edges and peel it off when dry to reveal a perfect polish job.
Essie Quick-E Drying Drops might just be life changing. We’ve all tried so many top coats that claim to make polish dry faster, but none works as well as these drops. Plus, the dropper application spreads evenly and penetrates nail polish, causing it to dry almost instantly and leaving a great layer of shine.
Ever plan on getting a pedicure after work, only to realize you don’t have flip-flops to change into? Or wished you had a comfy pair of flats with you to relieve the pain of your sexy pumps? CitySlips CityFlips have you covered. This make-up case contains a pair of foldable flip-flops and doubles as a tote to carry your heels in. It’s easy to carry in your bag at all times. Now you won’t have to tip-toe around with wet toes in those salon-provided paper sandals.

I am a nail polish addict—and, the more obnoxious and bold the color, the better. I stumbled upon my newest favorite shade, Blue Me Away! Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear, at my local CVS and have never gotten so many compliments! I plan on wearing this shade throughout the fall to perk up my typical New Yorker wardrobe of blacks and grays. – Lindsay Leff
