Wave Hello: Nail Polishes to Try This Summer

Bring on the carefree days of the season by painting your nails a fun shade! By Patricia Dayacap

Ah, summer. Can there be a time more delightful and exciting as the hottest months of the year? And though most of us said goodbye to summer vacations when we left college, the carefree feel continues to pervade our day-to-day activities. Dressing up, for instance, becomes a testament to all things bright, short, and printed. Long hairstyles are swapped for pixie cuts, top knots, and braids; and makeup becomes lighter, fresher.

Another thing we just can't help but break out come the summer season? Nail polish! Not only is it one of the easiest ways to punch up an outfit, but it also screams youthful exuberance (provided you go for striking hues). Besides, who doesn't love the look of pastel pink toes peeking out from pretty sandals? Or of juicy coral tips against a floral frock? We know you do, so here are 35 lacquers to jazz up bare hands.
