Beauty-fuls: We heart getting nailed! (Part Deux) The summer brights edition!!!! And...Happy Birthday!!!

Ewwww...woke up this morning and checked out the ol polished paws and noticed...Ahhhh they are in great need of a revamp and a wee bit of moisturizer.

So I waltz in the nail place I heart and ran directly over to the wall of endless polish possiblities...

Hmmm, what to pick...what to pick? It's summer so it has to be fun and lively and look good with a (faux) tan...

Then I remembered....I have my fave go to color that makes me swooon everytime in my purse!
Every time we wear it, people ask what it ladies (and a few cutie bean gents) our secrets of our fave summer polishes are about to be yours!
You're welcome!!

For some reason...our go to polish company is Essie. Not really sure why. We think it's simply because they have the best colors out there from natural to pop neon...
And this Essie color called Pink Parka is no exception! It's a bright shocking (but not too neon pink) We used it last time on our tooties and found every excuse not to wear closed toed shoes cuz we couldn't stop staring at our feet!

Now we know we named this post Summer Brights, cuz those colors look best in the 80 degree sunshiney days, but nothing says chic and classy like a gorge nude color on your fingers and toes.

OPI's Sand In My Suit is a TDF shade of nude...not to beige and not to pink...perfecto!

Here it is on a hand that is close to our skin color and we thinks we are about to pick this up at our fave beauty supply store ASAP!
PS Go to OPI today and you can "try" on any polish! Change the skin tone and nail length to see what looks best on!

Now for our newest obsession...the one that looks amazeballs on every skin tone and sassy on everyone...
Bright orange!!! It's far from 80's flourecent dayglo orange (although we heart that too) but just as shocking and bright!
This one from called Whack is like a tangerine on your tootsies. Soooo flattering and oh so summer chic!

OK...time for our secret color...the one we have to actually make an effort NOT to use every time we paint the paws...

Zoya Charisma! It looks exactly like this ridiculously stunning bright purpley pink stiletto by our boyfriend Christian Louboutin! Sooooooo beautiful!!!!!
We had to show you the shoe for 2 reasons...
1. We want it!!!
2. It really is the color of the polish...cuz if you look below at the color it looks like you would get the wrong idea...
See?!?! Not the same impact ;)
P.S. Zoya is an amazing polish company that was one of the first not to use those crazy harsh chemicals like formaldehyde (um hi...used to preserve dead people!)

Oh! Before we forget...another great polish company that has delish go to bright colors for the blazin days o' summer is China Glaze (horrible name but great colors...forgive them)

How fantastic, right?!???! Stolen from here... know what else looks chic and drips sex (ooh!) ? Gold and a tan...yummers!!!!

Hahahah...OK maybe not THOSE gold nails but these Press On nails on steroids from Dashing Diva are f'n rad!!!!
Press on and voila! Perfect Goldfinger (literally) gold....throw on a tee and tons of rings and you are soooooo hot!!!

So there you have it...a few of our go to secret polishes...try one or all you will kiss us! Just not with tongue this time...we are both a bit under the weather!

xoxo things we heart....
