When I think about blues for summer, I think of brighter hues from sky blue to pool blue. Here are some of my top favorites this summer… Please share yours with me in the comments! :)

  1. Cult Nails Nakizzle’s Shizzle — a sky blue cream
  2. Color Club Over the Moon — a holographic sky blue
  3. Zoya Rocky — a muted, sky blue
  4. Illamasqua Noble — a bold, bright blue cream
  5. Formula X Photoelectric — a brightened blue with a hint of teal

    Illamasqua’s Noble is such at total winner–the color, the shine and it applies beautifully!

  9. Gorgeous! If I had any of these (envy!) I’d be all over doing a gradient with 1 and 4, with a feature nail of 5! You know, just to get ALL THE BLUES! |:-D

    Oh, how I craved to wear sky blue on my nails by the end of summer just past but I haven’t come across any as beautiful as these.

    Essie ‘Bikini So Teeny’ is one of my fave blues for summer…just put it on today! Love the other colors too!

  14. That Illamasqua shade is gorgeous!

  15. I’m not always one for blue nail polish, but Julep has a shade called Margaret that is the perfect spring/summer pastel blue.
