Summer's hottest nail polish brings shock of color



Opi orange In the past week, I've noticed bright orange nail polish on a good number of fingertips. Not mine, I should note, but the blazing color popped up enough that I thought I should look into this phenomenon.

Sure enough, bold colors are making a statement as this summer's hottest nail polish hues.

InStyle suggests fire-engine red, lilac and sunny yellow. Inspired by butterflies, OPI offers four new Summer Flutter shades, including "Flit A Bit" orange and "Catch Me in Your Net" blue.

Blue? Really? Yes. And teal and green this summer, too. Sounds a little Wicked Witch of the West to me, but then again, I could be accused of being boring with the deep pinky-reds I typically paint on my toes. The cool kids were all over the rainbow nail trend at the MTV Movie Awards. And nail polish is an inexpensive way to bring some zip to your look.

Bold colors not enough for you? Revlon's Scents of Summer collection is, well, scented. The colors are really pretty. You may get some funny looks if you are spotted sniffing your nails, but heck, it's summer! Live it up! (And hurry, if you want in on the Revlon action, because these special bottles are available only through July.)
