I have a pretty extensive polish collection (check out my stash here), but by far, the majority of them are “fall” and “winter” colors. That is, dark and/or neutral. Since my collection was kind of lacking in the bright, summery colors department, I decided to go shopping for some new ones. I ended up with a few from Essie’s spring and summer collections, including this one, Come Here (which is currently on my toes). I still felt the urge to darken it up, so I went with my go-to Mr. Candiipants flowers and some polka-dot borders. I must say, I kind of love it.
I used Essie Come Here as a base and painted the design with either Sinful Colors Black on Black or OPI Black Onyx, I can’t remember. Not that it really matters – black is black, but those two have the best formulas of any I’ve tried.
I think these are interesting without being too crazy. I especially love that Come Here is almost a classic red, but then turns nearly-neon coral in the sun. Perfect for summer, especially if you have an office job like me.
What’s your favorite summer polish this year?
