Our style in the summer months has, over the years, become more or less like a uniform: pared-down cotton separates in solids and stripes with easy, slip-on sandals—a.k.a. ensembles that can withstand the sweltering New York humidity. That said, any nod to style is reserved for accessories: jewelry, bags, and, of course, nail polish—the only beauty product immune to summer’s sweat-inducing effects. Since our nails remain one of our few means of summertime creative expression they are in a constant state of flux, which isn’t a bad thing these days; in the current climate of manicure mania, there are more than enough colors to go around. With that in mind, we present the ten shades we’ll be playing with all summer long. Happy finger painting!
Think Dark Pink
Tenoverten Polish in Elizabeth
The cool Tribeca nail enclave has, in the brief time it’s been open, already earned a devoted fan base, and its premier line of polishes will likely follow suit. We’re particularly fond of the intensely pigmented fuchsia Elizabeth, named for the hip Nolita street in downtown New York.
Orly Polish in Glowstick and Melt Your Popsicle
Something about the summer inspires us to incorporate colors into our repertoire that are most certainly never found in nature. And these highlighter marker-inspired lacquers definitely fit the bill. Too unnatural? Just use them as an accent or the tip of a French manicure, instead of an allover shade.
$8.50 each, www.orlybeauty.com.
Essie Nail Polish in Mojito Madness
A light, creamy spearmint shade, this varnish looks as fresh on the nails as the delicious boozy beverage it’s named after does on a hot summer day.
Va Va Vamp
Eres Nail Lacquer in Damas
A rich brown with hints of red, this polish reminds us of our Chanel Vamp-loving days of the late nineties—in the best way possible. It’s an ideal fingernail hue for those of you whose skin remains on the lighter side of pale all summer long.
$25, at Eres stores.
A Coral Worth Coveting
YSL Nail Lacquer in Corail Divin
All corals are not created equal, and YSL’s excellent take on the classic color—part of the luxury brand’s impossibly chic new lacquer line (we also love the Bleu Majorelle)—is a testament to this fact. It’s a truly elegant adaptation of the Boca Raton mainstay.
So, how does model Adriana Lima prep for the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show? Easy: She works out twice daily and lives on a diet of protein shakes made from powdered eggs. For nine days prior to the show, she’ll eat no solids, and 12 hours before it, she’ll take no liquids—”so you dry out. Sometimes you can lose up to eight pounds just from that,” the Brazilian bombshell says. Hey, at least she’s honest; we had a sneaking suspicion that she doesn’t just roll out of bed and into that diamond-studded G-string. [Daily Mail]
The premiere of Breaking Dawn: Part 1 may still be two weeks away, but the blockbuster is already making beauty headlines. Twilight Beauty (the cosmetics collection inspired by the wildly popular book-turned-film series) will release Immortal Twilight, a citrus and chamomile fragrance, in honor of the movie’s release.

Nail polish is the beauty—and fashion—industry’s product obsession du jour, and now Eres is getting in on the action. The lingerie and swimwear brand will launch its own line of three predictably sexy lacquers next spring. [WWD]
Kirsten Dunst has revealed that part of her post-moviemaking plan includes dreams of launching a home decor and beauty line. “I am someone who really cares about the products I put out. Even if it was inexpensive, I’d want it to be really well done. I do love nice-smelling things. We’ll see what happens.” There’s definitely a fragrance contract in Dunst’s future. [USA Today]
