With summer finally upon us, and yes I say finally because as you are all well aware our bay area “summer” always shows up a little late, we have some amazing colors from OPI and Essie that will satisfy your need for a little sunshine on your pinkies.
One of the most frequently asked questions we get here at Pinkies is what color polish is the most popular right now. Since color preferences changes with each season, summer is the perfect time for you to try a color you wouldn’t normally. Think bright and think bold. The 80′s has made a comeback this summer in the form of fluorescent pink polish. But why is it so popular? It is feminine, looks good against any skin tone and glows in the sun; naturally it is perfect for summertime. We offer a wide variety of pink polishes, from pale pink to neon pink.
Quench your thirst this summer by having your Pinkies technician paint your toes with OPI Strawberry Margarita.
Another popular bright pink polish this season from OPI is Koala Berry. If you’re an Essie girl, go for either Bachelorette Bash or Exposure for your pink fix.
Another trend I’ve noticed this summer is inspired from the sea. That’s right ladies, I’m talking about blue polish. And let me just say, there is no age limit for blue. It looks flattering on everyone! If you’re still hesitant, why not just try it on your toes? It will look great against the hot sand at the beach or when you dip your them into your pool. Our blue polish selection ranges from tropical blue to navy blue. From OPI, I would recommend Teal The Cows Come Home or Suzi Says Feng Shui. Essie has a great navy blue polish called Aruba Blue. For something lighter from Essie, Barbados Blue is an excellent option.
Sticking with the motto for the summer, “bright and bold,” coral colors are making a big appearance as well. We are moving from colors of the sea to colors of the sunset, try the sea on your toes and the sunset on your fingers for a summery contrast. Coral, as many of you know already, is a color between pink and orange. For something hot and spicy, give OPI Cajun Shrimp a try. For those of you who really want to make a statement, try OPI Atomic Orange. It is just like it sounds; loud and very daring. The most popular coral polishes from Essie are Tart Deco and Boathouse.
A few other honorable mentions this summer is Essie Lilacism; a beautiful lavendar polish. Perfect for those of you that love pastel polishes. Summer is also wedding season so if you’re unsure of what color to choose, go with the classic French polish. It’s fresh, it’s clean and will compliment any dress you wear. For a little extra feminine flair, add some nail art or add a line of silver sparkle where the white hits the pink (also known as a smile line).
