Nail It: These Are The Hottest Nail Polish Shades You Should Be Wearing Now

This summer, we’re all about pretty pastel hues that lend a ladylike vibe to even the edgiest outfits. Easy to wear and way fun, pastel nails can immediately give a youthful look effortlessly.  Not only does it feel fresh, it also adds a pop of color to the gloomy days, and yes, wardrobes! From girly pinks and fresh mints, to muted blues and sheer lilacs, each pastel shade will give you nails that are suited to the current season. Check out our top shades below:



Serene and ethereal, nothing says underwater fun better than a nail polish inspired by life under the waves! Deborah Lippmann Nail Color in Mermaid’s Dream is a glittery seafoam splendor. This shade definitely looks divine on water babies or otherwise. At Rustan's
