Shade: Beatnik & Gel Top Coat
(royal blue color with glossy finish, and clear gel finish)
Cost: $$$ (for the polish + gel top coat)
At work, we held an event for New York Fashion Week sponsored by Sally Hansen with their whole line of Miracle Gel polishes available for manis. I fell in love with this shade and ran right out to buy it. They say it lasts up to 2 weeks, I'm at 9 days with almost no chips, proving strength is always in fashion.

Shade: Elegantly Wasted
(dusty lavender color, glossy finish)
This one came in my Ipsy bag this month. I'd never heard of it before but I love the name. I wasn't sure about the shade. Didn't seem like me. But I got a bunch of compliments, so even if it's not me, it might be YOU.

(light blue color, metallic finish)
I picked this up on a trip to Ulta. On a whim. (Couldn't resist.) It's exclusive to the store but I'm not sure why this polish is so expensive. It seems like everything else out there, but the shade was unique. Reminds me of an Easter egg.

Shade: Sugar & Spice
(bronze gold color, metallic finish)
This polish is supposed to get stronger with exposure to natural light. Apparently you are also supposed to use a special topcoat (which I neglected to buy). I don't know about you, but I'm getting kinda tired of having to buy these multi step polishes because each one is a different mix. Still, I like the shade.

Shade: I Eat Mainely Lobster
(coral orange color, glossy finish)
This shade is a clambake in a bottle (and is more neon IRL than it looks here). It's bright and sunny and you won't get sand in your suit. Only thing is it wasn't shiny enough for me out of the bottle so plan on a topcoat. Think of it as sunscreen!

Shade: Peace & Love & OPI
(gray, purple & green iridescent color, metallic finish)
This is a fun one because it's a different color in every light. The photo doesn't do it justice. Purple in sunlight, green in fluorescent light, and gray pretty much everywhere else -- it's like a mood ring for your nails!

(teal green color, iridescent finish)
This is a total summer shade. It looks like the ocean I wish I was dipping my toes in. Another hit for Sally!

(navy blue color, subtle shimmer finish)
Today's my birthday and navy's my favorite nail polish shade, sooo... here's a good one to help soften the blow of turning 42. Make a wish!

Shade: Love's a Beach
(neon pink color, metallic finish)
There is one time of year that a shade like this works. Luckily, we're in it! This one's perfect for voyages, vacations, staycations, and summer Fridays.
