For summer, China Glaze’s Island Escapepresents six colorful shades perfect for the season. I’m actually quite in love with this launch–it’s gorgeous and the colors are fun. They may not be the most unique, but I think they’re well-done overall. The shades include: Papaya Punch (crème based vivid orange), 108 Degrees (flirtatious berry pink with specks of micro glitter), Senorita Bonita (passionate purple shimmer with pink micro glitter), Blue Iguana (bold and daring sparkly blue), Cha Cha Cha (vivacious shimmer green), and Electric Pineapple (high intensity crème based lime green).
Illamasqua Radium Nail Varnish(£13.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as an “acidic lime, shimmer finish” shade, which is new for the Toxic Nature collection. It’s a beautiful neon chartreuse green with yellow undertones and iridescent green and chartreuse micro-shimmer. Though currently only available through Illamasqua directly, it should make its way to Sephora next month.
Zoya Mod Mattes Collection includes three limited edition, matte shades for summer. These shades include: Phoebe (shimmered blue with a matte finish), Mitzi (chartreuse with a matte finish), and Lolly (pink with a matte finish).

The shades include: Areej (pink with an opaque cream finish), Breezi (soft, dusty medium cerulean blue with an opaque cream finish), Kieko (warm, red toned dusty oilght purple with berry tones with an opaque cream finish), Mira (blue-toned medium purple with dusty lavender tone an an opaque cream finish), Sooki (bright, clean, crisp cool cherry red cream with subtle jelly finish), and Tamsen (medium warm brick red with strong orange tones with an opaque cream finish).

The shades are: Apple (luminous yellow-toned apple green packed with gold metallic sparkle), Faye (bronzed mauve with purple and brown undertones flooded with rich gold sparkle), Kimmy (gleaming metallic candy apple red brightened by gold sparkle), Reva (cool-toned strawberry red with glowing golden metallic sparkle), Rica (warm light coral with pink and orange tones and heavy gold metallic sparkle), and Tanzy (light, bright tangerine orange with yellow gold metallic sparkle).
Rescue Beauty Lounge Ani Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.4 fl. oz.) is a semi-sheer champagne beige with white shimmer and almost metallic-like threads running through the color. It’s officially described as, “shimmery, semi-transparent golden beige, as if you could dip your nails in nacre.”
