Summer without summer nails? No such thing. As much as I adore french manicures, reds, soft pinks whites or nudes, I love getting out of my comfort zone with nail colours. This season, we’re seeing a lot of Brazil themed collections like the OPI one. Kiss me I’m Brazilian is officially my summer nails.
Now, I wish I were Brazilian. I’m convinced that I was in my past life. The beach, the dancing, the music, the boys, the tan, the bikinis, the looks. Love it all. Want it all. Speaking of which, can we take a moment to discuss what happened in that Germany-Brazil match? Unacceptable I say. Brazil totally deserved to be winners in their hometown, until the Germans attacked.
Anyway, this nail colour is a bold one. It’s a very opaque pink that would compliment tanned hands very well. Nevertheless, I think it would look as great on lighter skin tones. Two coats of that before topping it off with the UNE top coat. And voila! Summer nails.
With all the nail collections that came out this summer, I find that OPI truly has the best one so far. I feel that the Essie summer collection is deja vu, a bit bleh and childish looking to my liking. Although the OPI Brazil colours aren’t anything new, they remain more bright and lively with very original names. I’d enjoy staying hours contemplating these colours on my nails. Or not.. You can check out the full collection and swatches here.
That is all for today. How are you guys liking the “Making my way through summer” series so far? I’d love to know what you think. So please let me know in the comments below.
