Nail Polish Colors for Summer 2017, fashionlush, nail trends

The nail salon is my zen. It is my happy place.

It is the one place where both hands are too busy to check emails & have one-two hours (depending on how much I wanna pamper myself) to just relax.

My favorite part about getting my nails done though, is deciding on a color.

The night before a nail appointment I always browse Instagram & bookmark (love this feature) all my favorite colors of the moment so I can be prepared when hit with the book full of fake nails painted in 500 different colors.

When it comes to my color choices, I really like to have fun with my nails & mix things up, sooo today I am sharing with you guys the next 5 polishes on my list of colors to paint my nails in the future.

** p.s. All my color picks are by China Glaze, cause according to my mom, it’s better than Essie/OPI/etc. I will say- pretty impressed that her at home mani barely chipped after a whopping two weeks, and if was white (which typically chips in like a day)! **

1. Ultra Violet Purple: my current color, which I actually let my nail lady pick for me & ended up loving. I wanted something SUPER bright, but not too obnoxious (plus, a neon orange looks horrific on my skintone), & this cool/yet shocking purple was perfect.

2. Army Green: the camo trend is huge right now, & just recently I have seen it on nails as well. I love the juxtaposition of a Fall-ish nail color in the Summer & this green is the perfect shade I have seen yet.

3. Metallics:  I typically go for more flat colors, but lately I have been eyeing all of the metallics. I love the idea of a chrome nail, but after trying it, I realized it was a little aggressive for me- so I am thinking of switching to a pretty rose gold metallic next time around.

3. Pastel Blue: my last visit to the salon it was a toss up for the uv purple or a light light sky blue. I opted for the purple, but a powdery blue hue is definitely in my future (but also loving pastel pinks, buttery yellows, & light lavenders!)

4. Warm Browns:  brown is kinda an ugly color, but for nails, I am into it. It’s different, & goes so well with just about any skintone (although make sure it’s not the same color as your skin- either one shade lighter or one shade darker atleast!). This one is pretty universal, & for a brown hue, I def. think it needs to be super flat.
