OPI Nail Lacquer in Tagus in That Selfie

It's hard to go wrong in the summertime with a poppy pink like OPI's Tagus in That Selfie. We love this bright pink hue almost as much as we love the streak-free shine of OPI's classic polish formula.

ILNP Mega Intense Scattered Holographic Nail Polish
$10.00

If you're looking to sparkle in the sunshine this summer, grab a bottle of ILNP's Mega Intense Scattered Holographic Nail Polish. We love the serious glam vibes it gives off and think it'll look dazzling on your toes at the beach.

RMS Beauty Nail Polish in Beloved
$15.00

If you're more into classic colors than trendy seasonal shades, the RMS nail polish in Beloved will be perfect for your next summer mani. This rich red provides flawless, chip-resistant coverage that will last through your vacay.

Deborah Lippmann Gel Lab Pro Nail Polish
$20.00

If you're looking to keep tradition alive this summer, Deborah Lippmann's salmon hue is great for everyday wear. Plus, you won't have to worry about coming across as too plain. The coral polish dries with the slightest sheen in order to mirror a soft flower petal.

butter LONDON Trend Nail Lacquer in Seaside
$15.00

A must-have metallic for the summer months, butter LONDON's aqua hue brings a lot of shine to vacationing tips. We'd sport the shade at the beach, across tips for an alternative, oceanic French, or as one statement nail for a not-so-subtle pop of contrast.

Smith & Cult Nail Lacquer in Exit The Void
$18.00

When you're wearing a fun blue hue like Exit the Void, the sky's the limit. Apply a coat or two of this creamy, opaque periwinkle lacquer before heading out to the club with the girls or brunch with the new boy.

ORIBE The Lacquer High Shine Nail Polish in Royal Blush
$32.00

Beach babes are meant to be bum-chic, and we're trading in our summer shimmer and metallic finishes for a neutral from ORIBE that's super subtle and classy. The high-shine lacquer takes nude up a notch with a slightly pinker hue.

9 of 11
Essie Nail Polish in Stripes & Sails
$9.00

Trade in your soft pinks and blues for a bold green shade this summer. We're categorizing this Essie lacquer as a teal green that pairs well with beach days, while also serving as a luxe statement-making polish for the office.

JINsoon Painted Ladies Collection Nail Lacquer in Ube
$18.00

Love lavender? Play up the springy shade with JINsoon's vivid polish. This gorgeous pick prides itself on being 5-free, so you're scoring a high-gloss look with fewer chemicals.
