Best Nail Colors for Spring/Summer By Brand

Claudia Di Capua

ESSIE

We can always trust that Essie will have tons of go-to colors and constantly be adding new shades! Here are a few of my new faves and some that I need to try this spring/summer!

OPI

OPI colors are like the cadillac of nail polish colors for me. I can always count on OPI to have quality polishes. I've recently tried out their gel colors and I love that they don't dry too thick! Alpine Snow is my all time favorite by them.

 

Sally Hansen

Sally Hansen polishes have been around forever and are trusted by so many. I love that they sell a bunch of different products to give you a unique look. The crackle prints and nail stickers make your nails eye catchers. For everyday-wear in the spring and summer, I like to play it simple by using one of the shades to the left!

2. Mudslide

3. In Full Blue

4. Barracuda

5. Sheer Ecstasy

6. Let's Snow

My New Secret Weapon

Claudia Di Capua

Okay, so this might be obvious for some, but I have a new obsession. It's sunscreen! Specifically for my face. I don't trust just any sunscreen because of all the harsh chemicals that can be found in a good amount of them. I did a bit of research and fond out that mineral sunscreens are among the healthiest to use! These are generally chemical free and most contain FDA (Food And Drug Administration) approved active ingredients. Find out why I am now warding off harmful UV Rays using Bare Republic Natural Mineral Sunscreen below!

Favorite Lipsticks + How They Look On

Claudia Di Capua

Excited to show you all my favorite lipsticks plus how they actually look on (Those are my lips with the various colors)! These are my favorite shades for all occasions at different price points. Use the links provided to be directed to where to purchase each lipstick.

 

 

Marc Jacobs: Anais

I love this color because of how neutral it is. It looks so natural and works with every look I have on! I usually wear this with a smokey eye because it helps to tame the look and make it more sophisticated. Anais is truly my go-to color and looks very elegant on!

 


 

Benefit: La La Land

This shade is slightly darker than I normally wear, but benefit has some amazing products! I love the creaminess of this color and how evenly and smoothly it goes on. La La Land helps to enhance the natural color of my lips. I don't usually use lip liner, but this color would look great with one. Also, this color looks great with a sheer gloss or neutral lipstick or gloss.


 

Revlon: Pink Truffle

Pink Truffle is by far my favorite drug store lipstick find! It is such a pretty plummy/rosy pink color and adds a nice pop to your makeup without being overwhelming. Not to mention, it was super inexpensive. Honestly, I'm not sure why I haven't tried some of Revlon's other shades, but it's probably because I love this one so much!


 

 

Laura Mercier: Peony

This color is slightly out of my comfort zone, but I love the brightness of it. I normally stick to more neutral and muted tones, but this Laura Mercier color is a light and pretty for spring. I like mixing this color with my nude shades if I want to tone down the brightness.


 

 

Buxom: Satin Mauve

This is a new purchase for me and it was definitely the right move! I would estimate that this Buxom shade is about one shade darker than the Laura Mercier shown above. It is also slightly more purply. I love the look of darker lip shades and this lipstick made it easy to ease my way into it. 


 

 

Butter London: Black Cherry

So far, this is the darkest color I have worn. Black Cherry is an amazing plum purply color and looks amazing on olive or pale skin tones. I love the saturation of this shade and how it strays away from the classic deep red. One thing I will say is that if you plan to wear a dark color, make sure you exfoliate your lips because the dead skin WILL show up and it will leave dark specks on your lips!

Drugstore Finds That Are As Good As Name Brands
