Seasonal Nail Polish Favorites

By Rona Berg / September 24, 2016

“Everything is bright and light for summer,” says Kim D’Amato, founder of Priti NYC. “For the runway, everything was baby pink and baby blue, but of course, everyone wants pops of color everywhere!” Here are some fun, flirty favorites for the season.

Priti NYC’s recent collection, inspired by Cuba, is one of the hottest color palettes I’ve seen. Priti was one of the first nail-polish brands to focus on eliminating the harshest chemical ingredients from its polishes, and the fashion-forward brand is always a major player backstage at the fashion shows in NYC and Paris.

Surya Brasil’s new Exotic Animals Nail Care line takes the notion of hoof and claw to an entirely new level. With shades inspired by (and named after) Chameleon (Metallic Green), Peacock (Bright Metallic Blue) and more, these warm, vibrant colors are inspired by exotic animals around the world, with a little animal illustration that decorates the bottle.

The new Spa Rituals collection is called Nurture, inspired by the company’s commitment to the Slow Beauty movement, and the nurturing aspects of self-care. The colors are soft and playful, with a few jewel tones for those who prefer a bolder look.

A newcomer to nail polish, RMS Beauty, founded by makeup artist Rose-Marie Swift, is one of the cleanest lines out there. This is a season of neutrals for the RMS Beauty palette, with a few bright shades in the gorgeous collection.

Soft, sugary colors are featured in the Gabriel Cosmetics’ current collection. The stylish polish goes on smooth and easy and lasts at least five days, even if you are “handsy,” like me.
