14 New Nail Polishes To Get Your Hands On For Summer '14
With every turn of a season, we have a lot to look forward to — especially when it's time for summer.
We have warm weather ahead, picnics to prepare, (hopefully) no school assignments to worry about, and maybe even a few vacation days.
Unofficially, summer started over last week's Memorial Day Weekend. Officially, the first day of summer is June 21st. This gives us more than enough time to stock up on summer essentials, like sexy swimsuits, summer shoes, and as many bottles of brand new nail polish that we can justify while still being on time for rent. Yes, that's a little game I like to play.
Here, 14 of the latest lacquers—inspired by the many shades of summer—to wear to your next backyard BBQ.
