When the weather gets warmer, it's fun to mix things up with your nail colors. Buh-bye to the dark red, navy, and black polishes of the moody winter months. You served us well. Hello to the bright and bold colors of spring and summer. It's your time to shine.
That's not to say you can't wear dark colors in warmer months and bright colors in colder seasons, but there's something that just screams "summer" when you've got a bold manicure. There's just something cheerful and optimistic about bright colors. And don't we all need it right now?
For inspiration, I asked some of the most stylish women we know for their favorite bright colors to wear on their nails. See what they said below, and add these to your wish list.
Reds and Pinks
Tamara Mory counts bright-red polishes as one of her go-to colors, along with burgundy, dark red, and nude when she wants something natural. "It's pretty classic, but that's what matches most of my outfits and I never get bored of. I usually wear OPI—it's my favorite," she says.
Orange and Yellows
"I love Barry M and have used this brand for at least 10 years! At the moment my favorite colors are Blood Orange, Pink Lemonade, Açaí Smoothie, Black Cherry, Under the Sea, and Coconut Infusion in Oyster."—@nlmarilyn
Barry M's Blood Orange reminds us of vibrant summer sunsets. Unfortunately, this brand of polishes is hard to find in the U.S., but this similar hue from Orly is a good option.
Blues and Greens
