Summer’s Eye-Popping Colors (No Nail Biting, Please!)

I don’t know about you, but after a year of foregoing manicures and pedicures, I’ve been beyond happy to get back into a nail salon. And don’t get me started on those foot rubs I missed so much. Do-it-yourself kits are great, and there is a slew of really good ones out there, but I’m not good at that kind of thing and prefer to lay back and tune out. Now, as many of us are venturing back to nail salons (albeit we’re wearing masks again), we can catch up on all the bright and bold polishes that summer is made for. This season means retina-burning colors that pop by the beach, around the pool, and on the town. Think fiery corals, pulsating purples, throbbing tangerines, loud limes, booming bananas, and flashbulb fuchsias. (But no neons, thank goodness! Remember the 80s?)

Muted pastels are also significant for summer and work beautifully with current fashions. Choose between greens — spearmint and mint —pale turquoise, powdery pink, and a baby blue shade that looks like a Mayan sky. Here are some of my favorites from this season’s picks:
