Open-toe shoes are a must on hot summer days; fortunately, the right shade of electric blue or mint green on toes can really make an outfit pop. The latest Shop-A-Matic rounds up 110 of our favorite nail polishes, including bold corals and shimmery metallics. We sampled each one so you can see how the colors change from bottle to hand, and also asked Michelle Mismas, the nail expert behind All Lacquered Up, to chime in with her current obsessions. Click ahead to see which polishes made the cut.
China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Flyin’ High
Why All Lacquered Up Likes It: Turquoise is the “It” color of the year. Of all the ones that have come out for summer, Flyin’ High packs the most punch. It’s glossy perfection.
Orly Nail Lacquer in Rage
Why All Lacquered Up Likes It: Nothing highlights a faux-glow better than a blinged-out metallic nail. Orly hit the jackpot when they created this foil-finish rose gold, which flatters a wide range of skin tones.
MAC Nail Lacquer in Scorcher
Why We Like It: Nothing sets off (safely!) tanned skin quite like a bright coral shade, especially when paired with a floaty white frock.
Dolce & Gabbana Intense Nail Lacquer in Perfection
Why We Like It: A classic nude can be tricky to pull off since most hues tend to wash out the skin. Dolce & Gabbana’s version has just enough warmth to flatter and is subtle enough for even the most conservative workplace.
OPI Nail Color in Jade Is the New Black
Why All Lacquered Up Likes It: As a lover of all things green, this color hits my nail-fanatic sweet spot, but on top of that, green is having a moment. OPI artistic director Suzi Weiss-Fischmann nailed it with this color. Jade is the new black.
