Looking for a new nail color? Tired of barely there sheers, soft pastels or hot brights?

Some of the most tempting shades this summer are still pastel, but they’re pumped up and opaque. Strong, not timid.

Take a closer look at some of the newer pastels. They’ll keep you looking polished all summer long.
