Summer 2013 Naughty Nautical


($8.00 each or $17.00 for the cube) is pretty much the epitome of the core colors I go for in the Summer.

While at Ulta, I picked up three shades out of the six from this collection, the hues that called to me the most were Rock the Boat, Sunday Funday and The Girls are Out – mostly because of their subtle yet striking shimmer.

Rock the Boatis a lovely baby blue shade with the subtle silver mini-glitters. I go for light & colorful shades like this when I need something more subtle, but not so neutral. The formula runs a little thin on this one, so I needed three coats for full coverage.

Sunday Funday is a juicy melon shade with the subtle silver mini-glitters. This is probably what most would gravitate towards for their Summer color. I love shades like this for my toes, classy but fun! Two coats of polish were used in the swatch photo.

The Girls are Out is a I whine a lot about hating fuchsia, but this shade has just enough purple in it to be a little different and a lot more acceptable to me. Plus the name sends my immature mind racing and makes me smile every time I look at my nails. Two coats of polish were used in the swatch photo.
