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

I love bright colors like Orange, Red, and Coral. I also like creamy pinks and whites. Thick white is a super hot color for the summer=) metallics also look great on your toes.

Love that sort of summer-y tangerine/grapefruit color! Not good for winter though. But GREAT for summer!
