NAIL FILES: It’s Getting Hot in Here…

Summer is on and hotter than ever. The beach is the place to be right now. Picture yourself in a stunning and flashy bikini, your best sandals, a sheer and chic coverup, your classic Ray Ban aviators, holding a giant Mojito. What could be missing in this fabulous equation? The perfect mani-pedi. And since Summer is a synonym for fun, let your paws look like a beach ball! Bright colors and a killer tan are a match made in heaven. Wearing a hot pink tank top over your perfectly roasted skin (alway wear sunscreen) will always make you pop, and will make a lot of heads turn. So with your nails, same effect. Plus, bright hues are always much more fun and happy than a classic beige (leave that for a wedding) or the too serious crimson (leave that for a work meeting). Here at Sweet’n’Raw, we took the task upon ourselves to find the best nail colors of the Summer. So here they are:

NAIL FILES: The Treasure Chest

No I did not take inspiration from Pirates of the Caribbean now that the movie is out (though I am in love with OPI’s limited edition for the film and probably will keep praising it again and again). Instead, since jewel tones were huge last season and still stick around for this current one, why not? Also, metallics are a huge trend right now. If you don’t believe me, check out Lanvin’s Resort 2012 and see for yourself. And since I have probably driven you crazy by now with my pastels and my brights, it’s time for me to sober up. At least with my nails. So here you are, as if hidden under the ocean in a wooden chest, five nail polish hues so precious that will make you want to take a dive!
