Best Nail Polish Colors for Summer 2021

Are you tired of your usual go-to nail polish colors? Then look no further! We’ve rounded up some of our current favorite nail polish shades.

Not too bright and not too dark, OPI Nail Lacquer in Big Apple Red ($10.50, shop here) is a perfect shade of red, whether it’s for a big date or an office meeting. It looks good on any nail shape, length, and skin tone.

Looking for a color to match a fine burgundy wine? Try CND Vinylux Long Wear Polish in Decadence (14.65, shop here). At first glance, you will see a berry tone, but when it’s exposed to the sun, you will see more of a plum finish.

Do you want a juicy pink? Essie Expressie Quick-Dry Nail Polish in Crave the Chaos ($9, shop here) is a modestly bright hue that won’t draw too much attention. But if it does, it will have people asking, “Where did you get that color?”

Do you love the color of a clear blue sky? Then you should pick up Sally Hanson Good. Kind. Pure Vegan Nail Color in Crystal Blue ($6.72, shop here). This nail polish line is made without a lot of the toxic chemicals found in other brands, so you can feel good about the color and the ingredients.

If you want neutral nails, you can’t go wrong with Toned Down Nail Polish from Essie ($7.25, shop here). This gray color will look good with any skin tone and outfit.

For a bolder look, try Pear Nova Classic Lacquer in Lemon Drop Logic ($13.50, shop here). This shade, which is not mustard or neon, is a cheery yellow that reflects sunshine. And there’s no need to worry about chunkiness with this brand.
