There’s nothing like the contrast between (self) tanned skin and bright, juicy nail color in the summer. Ensure that those toes stand out in the sand with bold colors like Chanel Nail Colour in Marilyn, a punchy raspberry red ($19 at If pinks are more your thing, go for a vibrant fuchsia like Rimmel Underground Play Fast Nail Color in Punch ($4 at For a kick of citrus, Vinyl Deborah Lippmann in Call Me is reminiscent of a fresh, ripe orange — with just a hint of shimmer for good measure ($9 at And keep those neons brilliant with a protective top coat like Zoya Armor Top Coat/UV Block, which prevents chipping and discoloration ($8 at

These are great shades you suggested! Another good color is “Kid Orange” by MAC it is very much like the “Call Me” shade and is perfect along side a tan. Corral is very hot this season (and every summer) as it is the perfect summer color.

I have the Vinyl Deborah Lippmann nail polish from Bath & Body Works, and I LOVE the color. Bright pinks are another color I love, I have the Cover Girl 3-in-1 Fuchsia Fizz, Fabulous Fuchsia and Parisian Pink, all great for the Summer time, the colors really brighten the toe nails too.
