FAB Summer Nails...

Monday, July 16, 2012

I am obsessed with painting my nails.  I actually feel completely naked and out of sorts in between polishes when my nails are bare.  I am not sure how I became like this?  Maybe it's because I remember growing up my mom always paining her nails a bright red color.  Maybe it's because I used to spend half my 20's at the nail salon getting my fake nails and fake french manicure put on- thank god I grew out of that stage!  It doesn't really matter at this point as long as my nails are painted. Summer is the perfect time for using fabulous colors on the nails and right now I am into bright pinks and corals.  Here are some of my favorites:
                                                 OPI Strawberry Margarita

                                                  essie bachelorette bash
                                                    Salley Hansen Mango

Here's some easy tricks I learned from a magazine a few years ago to keep that manicure looking fresh.
 1. Make nails superclean- use cotton pads soaked in alcohol.
2. Use cuticle oil to coat nail beds at least once a day- Helps to prevent polish from chipping.
3. Do an extra top coat the same day you do your nails- Helps extend the mani by at least two days.
4. Always hold the brush parallel to nail and paint a stroke down the middle of your nail, then do one down each side.
5. Fix polish mistakes with a lip brush or a paint brush.

What are you favorite Summer nail colors?


  1. I can't stop doing the gel manicures - mine really do last about 2.5 weeks. My go to color is OPI's Cajun Shrimp.
