Summertime means it’s time to break out the sunscreen, sandals, and, of course, these stunning summer nail colors for 2023. What? A few bottles of nail polish isn’t a staple in your beach bag? We have so much to teach you.
From neon yellows that’ll get you invited to the Tropical Bird Convention, to blues so cool they make ice cubes jealous, this season is all about having fun and standing out. Which is why we just had to include at least one confetti nail polish. If anyone asks, our birthday somehow spans the months of June to August. No questions at this time.
We also included a few pops of bright pink to celebrate the release of the new Barbie movie in July, a green to match your poolside margarita, and a handful of slightly more subtle shades for those days when you just want to blend into the sand. We hear that’s great for exfoliating your skin.
