Pleasing Pastel Polishes
Butter London's Nail Polish ($15) in Jasper is the same buttery yellow used at Louise Gray’s F/W 13 show.
It might have a whimsical name, but M.A.C.’s Nail Lacquer ($16) in Midsummer’s Dream is just your classic cotton candy pink--a fail-safe choice.
Dior Vernis ($24) in Tutu from the Pink Champagne collection is pink enough to look classic and white enough to feel fresh.
Can’t choose between pink and orange? Try CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss ($5) in Coral Silk for a little bit of both.
A powdery blue shade from the brand’s limited-edition Versailles collection, L’Oreal’s Colour Riche Nail Polish ($6) in Royally Yours will immediately deepen your tan.
Julep’s Nail Polish ($14) in Shenae is a creamy mint that’s lighter than Dolce’s with a hint of pearlescence.
More pistachio than mint, Maybelline’s Color Show Nail Color ($3) in Green With Envy is so opaque you can get away with just one coat.
