Fun Nails to Highlight, Electrify, or Simply Compliment Your Summer Outfit!

We have approached July 4th and Summer seems to be nonexistent in Seattle, which means we haven’t been able to break out our flirty summer dresses or sport our open-toed heels this year. Living in a city that rains nine months out of the year does make it difficult to stay fashion forward. A flawless way to incorporate summer trends is through painted nails, whether you want to add some pop of color with neon or use the latest in patterns, painted nails are the way to bring out the playful summer color. Is it possible that the application of our summer nails could bring the sun to the Emerald City? Well, that may be a stretch but it couldn’t hurt to try! CND Shellac is one of the latest crazes with manicures, allowing up to 14 days of chip-free polish. Offered at salons such as Gene Juarez and Julep Nail Parlor, this service is great for women that don’t have time to refresh manicures weekly. CND offers a variety of on trend colors such as Raspberry Parfait and Poppyfield. Essie is another brand of nail polish that promises little to no chip for an extended period of time. Below is a picture that gives a quick preview of the Summer 2012 trend colors.


 Essie is also offering a great promotion via their Facebook page. We’ve also been noticing an increase in the patterns, or designs, used on nails. In order to spice up your nail choice, you could apply an OPI Gel with any color of your choice. OPI offers an interactive website that allows all users to learn how to apply the polish, as well as check the color that works best. Finally, the limited-edition colors from the Thakoon for NARS collection offer bold colors for any outfit! Visit the NARS full color collection for a greater variety in hues.
