I am a weather chaser and a season pusher. As soon as Fall is over I am counting down to Summer. There is nothing I love more than sand in my toes, sun on my face, and the sound of waves lapping the shoreline. And a good tan. Obviously. As a blond haired, blue eyed human, I am pretty much as pasty as they come, so that tan part I definitely need a bit of help with! I find nail polish is a great (and cheap!) aid in looking like you’ve got that summer glow without the sun damage your mama warned you about. Below are my favourite 5 Essie nail polish picks for the summer season. In addition to looking great with any ensemble, each colour plays with the pigments of your skin tone to give you that straight off the beach look we all crave this time of year.
