The Nail Colors the World's Most Stylish Women Are Wearing Now

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.
