Summer Polish Picks - Honestly Hannah

Summer Polish Picks


Hi friends! Since summer is finally here, I want to share with you one of my favorite summer accessories... NAIL POLISH! You might be thinking that nail polish isn't an accessory, but to me it definitely is. I'm actually kind of a nail freak. I hate when my nail polish is chipped and I feel like a new person when I have a new manicure! 




I tend to go with more neutral nail polish colors. I love how classy and feminine light colors look on the nails. I still, however, go with something a little more bold every now and then. 

My favorite polish brand is Essie, for sure. Their polish lasts a long time and applies smoothly to the nails. So, it's no surprise that my favorites all come from this awesome brand. I would also recommend OPI, Sinful Colors, and Sally Hansen!


This polish right here is probably my all time favorite nail polish ever. I love you, Essie Mademoiselle. This color is so feminine and makes your hands look super elegant. If you're looking for a gorgeous everyday nail color, this is definitely the one for you. I'd honestly recommend that everyone keep this color in their collection. It goes with absolutely any outfit for any occasion.





After falling in love with Essie Mademoiselle, I of course had to pick up a similar color, Essie Adore-A-Ball. While this color is fairly similar to my first pick, it's also so different. Instead of having a pink tone to it, I'd say it definitely has more of a white look when applied to the nails. It's not at all stark white, which I really like. Sometimes I feel like I have white out painted on my nails when I wear stark white nail polish. Therefore, I really like the sheer white look that this polish creates.





Yay! Another favorite! (Okay, they're all my favorites..) This gorgeous pink shade is Essie Fiji. I feel like this is a pretty popular shade, as I've heard a lot of YouTubers and other bloggers talk about it. Unlike the previous two polishes, this one is not sheer. The polish is, however, the absolute perfect baby pink. This nail color is really in for the summertime, so it's a must have for sure. 




Next up is something a little brighter. Essie Watermelon is a super bright pink color that I absolutely love when I'm looking for something a bit more dramatic. This color definitely draws attention to your manicure. It's not quite red, which I like because I feel that red is a bit more geared to fall and winter (but that's just my opinion of course). 



Lastly is a classic pink. This is always the color that just screams "summer" to me. I love everything about a good classic pink manicure. I also love to wear this color on my toes because I feel like it's so bright and summery. Every girl needs a classic pink nail polish in their collection, and Essie Forget Me Nots is the perfect color to pick up for summertime. 


What polishes are you loving this summer?!

  8. Essie is definitely my favorite for colors, but I've found they tend to chip quite easily for me. Butler Please is a gorgeous blue that I like to wear a lot in the summer though!

    1. I've experienced that before! If you top it off with the Seche Vite top coat, I find that Essie polishes last a lot longer. Definitely try that! :)
