Best Summer Nails Tips

First, I try to give my nails a rest. During the winter, I'm likely to leave my toes bare and just wear a basic polish on my nails. My winter treatment tends to be more basic and restorative. During the summer, it's all about color!

Second, since I love to change up the color, I do my own toes and nails. They only polish I keep in the house is Sally Hansen Miracle Gel. It's a total game-changer ladies. You can get a salon-quality polish in two steps.

Where to get it

All you need is the Miracle Gel Value Pack The #1 zero light gel system! (you can find it at most drug stores and at Walmart.com). Start with clean dry nails, apply two coats of color, add a top coat and you're done. In just two easy steps, I get over a week of hi-gloss color. And it dries super-fast--much faster than traditional polish. Pricing ranges from $13.99 and up.

When do you tend to do your nails? For me, it's all about catching a Netflix binge session and getting bold color on my nails. Lately I've been catching up on HBO's Girls as I polish away. I find trying to do my nails when the kids are awake is like going on a diet in Paris--pointless.

summer nail colors

The colors this summer are amazing. I'm wearing Prince Char-mint on my toes and Regal Rosé on my hands. All I need is a great sundress and I'm ready for a summer party.

My final tip? Don't go all matchy-matchy. Pick colors that compliment one another. I usually go for a bolder color on my toes and a more neutral color on my fingernails. And I'm crazy about all the nail metallic accents I'm seeing too.
