Don’t you just absolutely love nail polish? I do! I especially love the happy colors! I love to paint my nails. If I had time, I would probably paint them weekly, but let’s be honest- that is not realistic- at all.
Today I am going to show you my favorite **happy** nail polish colors! If you are wondering how I put nail polish into the category of “happy,” here’s how! I decided on the colors that are either my go-tos or the ones that are just extra fun! The extra fun ones for me are usually bright! Who cares if it is winter! I love all nail polish all the time.
My #1 favorite is OPI “Mimosas for Mr. & Mrs.” This is a light pink that is just sheer enough to be a pale pink and suitable for professional occasions, but it is just thick enough to where I can’t see my nail through it. It is the perfect light pink. My absolute favorite color.
Another go-to of mine is a hot pink by OPI called, “That’s Berry Daring.” I discovered this color over the summer when I was getting my nails done with my grandma. It is definitely a hot pink, and it even has a little bit of an iridescence- but not too noticeable- a perfect amount!
If I am going to paint my nails red, OPI “Cajun Shrimp” is a classic. I am not the only one who thinks so, too! I know many people who absolutely love this color. I am saying “love” way too much and my credibility is probably decreasing, but oh well! “Cajun Shrimp” is a bright red, so I don’t use it if I want a classic red.
If I want a classic red, I use Essie’s “Lacquered Up.” So pretty. So red.
OPI “You’re Such a Budapest” is just one of my fun colors that is perfect for spring. It is a purple with a little bit of blue and a little bit of gray. It’s just fun! And happy!
Along the bottom, the Essie colors go by “First Timer,” “Bikini So Teeny,” “Fiji,” “Butler Please,” and finally “Boom Boom Room.” These Essie colors are just so fun, especially for summer! I think that “Fiji” is a good color if you want an opaque pink. It can be a little tricky to apply, though, so keep that in mind!
If you are feeling a neon color, “Butler Please” is a great option. It is a cobalt blue that was part of Essie’s winter collection a couple of years back, so you can use it all year ’round!
I really wanted to include Essie’s “Haute Tub,” but it wasn’t too bright or colorful, and honestly, it just ruined the color landscape, but I also love this color. It is a black-purple-color with GLITTER! I really enjoy glitter. It is so great. So happy. Speaking of glitter, OPI “Designer de Better” is one of my favorites as well but I couldn’t find anywhere online to buy it. :( It was limited edition, so it would cost you about $50…. Not worth it.
