With so many summer colors to choose from, we understand if you’re a little overwhelmed. We’re here to help. Here’s a guide to the hottest summer colors.

Pale Nails: Simple, minimalist, and classic, pale polishes made a resurgence last year and continue to stun through this summer.

Gone Bad: We know dark nails are usually a winter thing, but recently fashion houses have suited their models with gorgeous charcoals and navys on the runway—we think it looks great!

Under the Sea: Deborah Lippmann released her “Mermaids” collection this spring. Colors include bright purple, pink, and green. (Sparkles included)

Dull Metallic: Butter London released a rose gold shimmer and a deep bronze this spring. Understated and beautiful, definitely must haves for the summer.

Sensitive Skin: Clinique released a collection of polishes perfect for sensitive skin. If you find yourself irritated after a mani, definitely check these polishes out.
