The Colors of Summer

"June Bride, please," my girlfriend said to her favorite nail tech, looking forward to a bit of sparkle and shine she could show off poolside. Meanwhile, another member of our posse went for a sassy purple on her toes for the same reasons. Like accessories, nail polish is therapeutic and genius: always fits and you can change it with your moods. Here are some of my favs for summer:
"Play Date" by Essie - for your more subtle summer days and add some silver sparkle at the ends for evenings

"Mojito Madness" by Essie - anytime this is on my tips, I get asked about the color.
Discovered from Style Scout's blog, it's the perfect shade of not to kelley, not to minty or putrid green
China Glaze's "Pool Party" - a discovery from my IA bff - the ideal and noticeable shade for
all summer long, hands and tootsies

"Bounce It's Me" by Essie - does this scream "I'm on vacation!" or what?!

"Turned Up Turquoise" by China Glaze - not, green, not blue, but bright neon fun
And if you're looking for some of the best salons to pop in and get your mani/pedi on, I highly recommend Blanca tucked away at CJ's Hair Design behind Kokopelli's on 95th and Nall for gel nails (hello - $22! and lasts at least two weeks!) and Stem Salon for toes (a proper, peaceful pedi that leaves your toes hydrated and beautified for weeks - $30).
Latest mani from Blanca (copying bff Katie!)

Happy painting!
