Ah, sandal season is finally upon us. When I realized that Wednesday is going to be 70 degrees out, I decided it was time to get my ass into gear making sure my feet looked presentable so I don’t scare anyone off and I swear, every time I go to paint my nails I always find myself reaching for some shade of pink or red (sometimes even neutral!).
Out of my entire nail polish collection (which I think is quite large) only a handful of those colors are anything other than pink or red. Oops? And out of all those pretty shades, I tend to go for the same five all. the. time. No matter the event, the season, or your mood, these six colors will get you through anything and everything, I promise!
She’s Pampered: This is the perfect in between pink and red color that I have ever happened upon. OK so maybe it looks more red when you actually have it on, but either way – it’s perfect. I actually just painted my toes this color in hopes of wearing sandals this week (fingers crossed).
Topless & Barefoot: I actually bought this color for NYE because they didn’t have any gold glitter nail polish (#basic) left at Target and this was the closest I was getting. I surprisingly ended up loving the color, it’s almost like a champagne color when it’s dried (with a little sparkle & shine) and the best part is that when it chips, you can barely notice!
: This is my absolute favorite pink nail polish color, ever. I currently have three bottles of it (you know, just in case) in my possession and is the one nail polish color that I wear the most out of these five six and c’mon, the name is ADORABLE! The only thing about this color is that the only place I have been able to find it other than buying it online is at Ulta!
Forever Yummy: Disclaimer – I bought this color for my mom but after using it once (and loving it!), I decided it was now my property and snuck it back to school with me. Sorry mom. This is the best red, ever. It’s deep. It’s sassy. It’s fierce. If you’re looking for the perfect red – this is it.
Bubble Bath: This color has been around forever and will always be one of my go-tos. My mom always wore it when I was growing up and I was seriously obsessed with it (I was weird, OK) and when I got my first manicure in second grade for my first communion, this was the color I chose. I typically put on two coats for a natural look but sometimes I get adventurous and will do three to make it more noticeable and ‘rich’ looking!
Nail Strengthener: I’ve tried all sorts of clear coats, but none of them have been as good as this one. Sure, it’s not technically a base coat or top coat, but it still works fab. I also tend to put a clear coat on my nails when I’m not in the mood to paint them just to get a little extra shine on my nails.
Have you tried any of these colors? What are your go-to nail polish colors for year round wear?
