For me, summer nails are bright. Add in some subtle sparkle, and I am even more drawn to them. That's pretty much why I am loving the super fun colors in essie's new summer Naughty Nautical collection.
"There's nothing more calming than a cruise to paradise, it completely rejuvenated mind, body and soul. This collection is for women in a sunshine sate of mind," says Founder and Creative Director, Essie Weingarten. "Inspired by breezy chiffon cover-ups and cashmere pastel evening looks, these six shades make the perfect wardrobe for any journey."
I am definitely in a sunshine state of mind just looking at the brilliant new shades:
- Rock the Boat - Shimmering French Periwinkle Blue
- Naughty Nautical - Brilliant Marine Blue-Green Shimmery Teal
- The Girls Are Out - Soft Fuchsia Peony Sparkle
- Sunday Funday - Bright Tangerine Coral Crush with Soft Shimmer
- The More the Merrier - Juicy Lime Green
- Full Steam Ahead - Pearlescent Punch of Lilac
I can see myself wearing all of the shades at some point or another this summer. While I've never thought of wearing a lime green on my nails, it could be fun as an accent nail with Sunday Funday (the bright coral) or The Girls Are Out (fuchsia).
Of course, I am still in this orange phase where I am still obsessed with everything orange. Sunday Funday is the first color I just had to try. The sparkle is very subtle and really only shows up out in bright sunlight.
essie's Naughty Nautical collection retails at $8.00 per bottle and is available at essie.com and selected beauty retailers such as Nordstrom.
