Guest Expert Rita Remark
When the temperature soars, bright, bold colour becomes our summer mainstay. Even the runways this season were packed with fresh, vibrant looks. Nail polish is a no-fail way to get in on this trend. It’s colour without commitment—and it’s just plain fun. Whether you’re invited to a backyard pool party or a summer wedding, now’s the time to up your nail game with this season’s hottest shades.
Flawless tips make a splash, but the sun’s rays can do a number on nails. Opt for a chic nude shade with subtle shimmer, like essie’s cocktails & coconuts. It works with every swimsuit under the sun, and best of all, chips are virtually undetectable. Make sure to swipe on essie’s good to go top coat for the ultimate high-gloss protective finish.
Picnic in the Park
Green grass and a perfectly packed basket call for a preppy-cool ensemble, which includes a creamy coral nail polish reminiscent of sorbet. Try two coats of essie’s tart deco for a pretty allover look—or experiment with a negative space nail design using one coat. Either way, it’s a quintessential summer look.
Rocking out in fringe and suede means you can crank up the volume with your nail colour, too. A playful aqua shade, like essie’s in the cab-ana, makes a cool statement and compliments festival-inspired jewellery. Throw out the rulebook and have fun—opt for a French manicure, an empty moon or contouring with a stripe down the centre of each nail.
When it comes to being a guest at this special event, a classic red hue makes a bold, modern statement whether you’re toasting the bride or getting your groove on. Up the glam factor with an exaggerated French tip nail design using essie’s too too hot, a rich red coral shade that flatters every skin tone.
