Must Have Nail Colors

I probably change my nail polish twice a week, and that's the minimum.  I get twitchy when it chips and doesn't look fresh anymore. It's been this ongoing thing since I was younger.  My aunt is a nail technician, and she used to own a salon with my mom, so I've been playing with nail polish for as long as I can remember.

At least that stuck with me, since I'm basically clueless about hair.

Between my aunt's collection and my growing one (I'm constantly sending my aunt lists of nail polishes to find for me) I'm always alternating something different in between wearing my go-to colors.

My top picks for summer come from OPI's Brazil Collection.  I mean, why not? Clearly they're perfect for the beach.

Kiss Me I'm Brazilian -- This is a really cute bubble gum pink color.  I'm actually wearing it right now and it's my current favorite.

Chillin' Like A Villain -- This is from the Muppets Most Wanted Collection.  It's a nice, sheer neutral color.  I first saw it on OPI's Instagram, and even though I have plenty of nude nail polishes--well you can never have too many.

Where Did Suzi's Man-go? -- Another color that I found on OPI's Instagram, this one isn't something I'd normally go for.  I can safely say that orange is not a color that I already own, but it is a recently popular color.  I like this one because it's not a neon orange. It's a lighter color, but it looks less pastel in person than in the picture.

Another important nail polish for summer is a base coat! My favorite is Orly Bonder.  It's a rubberized base coat that will make your polish last longer and prevent you from getting annoying stains from bright or dark polishes (Kiss Me I'm Brazilian will definitely stain!).

But if your nails do stain, using a nail buffer with a little bit of oil on it will fix them.

What are your favorite picks for summer?
