Summer is all about fun, bright colors, and nowhere is that more apparent than in this year’s red-hot nail lacquer palette. From electric pinks to high-shine metallics, this season’s sexiest accessory is right at your fingertips—literally. Here’s a quick rundown some of the shades that should be on your fashion radar.

Calypso Coral Oranges
Summer and sea themes go hand in hand. So it’s no surprise that leading this season’s nail polish pack are bright coral oranges. We love Perfect Formula’s vibrant Calypso for a day at the beach, while Deborah Lippmann’s Girls Just Want to Have Fun offers a more subtle splash of color for everyday wear.

Zoya_Lolly Electric Pinks
Flashy fuchsias and hot magentas light the way for a look that’s pure attitude and all-eyes-on-me confidence. You’ll need a healthy dose of confidence to rock our fave—Zoya’s Mod Matte Nail Polish in Lolly. Loud and lively, this nearly neon pink instantly electrifies any look with megawatt intensity.

Bumster-FinalCrop Bold Golds
Gold isn’t going away any time soon. Whether in matte of high shine, gilded fingertips are finding their way into more and more summer wardrobes. Butter™ London has a great collection of gilt glosses for any occasion, ranging from glittery glam (West End Wonderful) to muted ochre (Bumster).
