Face it. It’s August. Summer is more than half over and soon it will be time to bid adieu to the summer brights that have graced your nails since June. Even though the hot pinks and flaming oranges will be on hiatus, it doesn’t mean your manicures have to be boring. Instead, check out these subtle-yet-fun shades that will complement the fall season’s neutral trends.
Chip resistant and glossy, Essie's Hard to Get ($8) is everything you could hope for in a polish. It goes on more sheer than it appears in the bottle, creating a light, subtle pink.
Sally Hansen Diamond Strength First Dance ($4.79) is not only chip-resistant, but it helps strengthen nails and keep them from splitting. The “First Dance” color is a sheer, pinky ivory that complements a wide range of skin tones.
