Nine Fabulous Summer Polishes

Nail Polish Collage


First off, I just want to apologize for the cornball ass title but my creative juices were running dry this week. After last week’s little rant, I’m back at it with your scheduled content, and this week I decided to try something different and do a lil’ nail polish post. In the summer I know y’all want your nails to be looking fly as fuck, so I created a small compilation of my favorite hues for the summer.

Polish of the Week: Essie Head Mistress

Essie’s Head Mistress has become one of my favorite red nail polishes ever! I usually hate red nail polishes because they look like a hot mess to me, but this was a pleasant surprise. In the bottle, this appears to be a brighter red. After applying two coats of the polish, it darkened to the beautiful color pictured above. This is the perfect fall color for me and I recommend this nail polish for everyone looking for a dark red. I took so many pictures of this polish, so look below for some more struggle pics taken on my iPad.

Polishing Off the Week : The Neutrals

I have an obsession with nails. Nail polish, manicures, acrylics, whatever it is, I’m hype when it comes to nails. My nail polish obsession is truly tragic because I tend to impulse buy nail polish colors I don’t need. Despite my tragic, expensive obsession with painting my nails, I’ve decided to recommend my favorite polishes of the week. Recently, I’ve been wearing a lot more neutral polishes instead of pastel polishes. Look below for my five picks!

Essie Mochachino

This is a cool gray polish with a slight shimmer. It goes perfectly with my skin tone and I tend to dislike gray polishes.

Buy it on Amazon for $8.50.

Essie Little Brown Dress

This is a very, very dark brown polish that almost looks black. The color is reminiscent of black coffee. I highly recommend this for all my black girls reading this.

Buy it on Beyond Polish for $4.75.

OPI Barefoot in Barcelona

Barefoot in Barcelona is a pinky brown color and it’s my favorite neutral of the five.

Buy it on Amazon for $7.20.

OPI Bubble Bath

Bubble Bath is a classic neutral/nude for all skin toes. It is a very light pink but gives a subtle hint of color.

Buy it on Amazon for $6.73.

Essie Chinchilly

This polish is a gray and beige color and the color looks exactly as it does in the bottle.

Buy it on Amazon for $8.50.
