If you’re a regular LaurenConrad.com reader, you know that every season I like to share my favorites polish colors of the moment. Spring’s pastel shades were pretty, but now that summer is in full swing I’m making the move toward brighter hues. Here are five of the shades that will be making an appearance on my nails this season…

Nail Files: My Summer Polish Picks

Pool Blue

This cool, clear blue reminds me of one of the places I spend the most time during summer… the pool. Try Essie’s ‘I’m Addicted,’ which is the color in the picture above. ‘Boom Box’ from Ciate is another similar shade I’d recommend.


Bright white was all the rage on the Spring 2014 runways, but I prefer a slightly creamier, eggshell hue. This subtle shade is romantic, light, and airy—just like the summer season should. Get the look with Deborah Lippman’s ‘Prelude to a Kiss.’


I couldn’t leave this fun, citrus-y hue off of my polish list. Coral was one of my go-to nail colors last summer, and this feels like an updated take on the trend. The color above is Topshop’s ‘Carnival.’

Cherry Red

Red is vibrant and fun, but also such a timeless shade. It’s one of those colors that your friends will compliment you on and your grandmother will also approve of. The red in the photo is actually called ‘Summer Time’ (it’s from Treat Collection). Pretty fitting if you ask me. (P.S. I love how it pairs with a hot pink pedi!)


Fuchsia is one of those colors that just flatters every skin tone. No matter what your skin tone is, it will look good on your fingers and toes. Give ‘Too Taboo’ by Essie a try for a look that is vivid, intense, and feminine all at once.

What color is on your nails right now?
