Freshly painted nails are one of the best feelings. I’m borderline obsessed with having my nails done. I know I’m not alone when I say chipped nails just don’t fly. For all you New Yorkers reading, I am a tad jealous that essie opened its first ever nail salon in your city (and down the street from where I used to live). I’m dying to check this place out! It seems like a little piece of heaven. Based on pictures I’ve seen (and rumblings I’ve heard) it’s beautiful and screams ‘essie.’ What could be better? In honor of this exciting opening, I’ve compiled eight of my all time favorite essie colors for summer. I urge you to try one of these bright, fun shades during this very short, yet amazing, season.
