Summer 2011 Nail Trends

During the summer is usually when I change up my nail color more often. I have more time on my hands to try new things and wear obnoxiously bright colors. A lot of nail trends went around this year, and I think they were all lots of fun, from bright corals and tangerines, to lemon yellows. Blue has been on my nails religiously for the past week (see here), but I’ll be sure to break out some new polish colors soon.
