Sophisticated Summer

Summer allows you to have a bright and bold color palette. While hot pink polish might be a favorite of mine for summer it is just not always appropriate. I was so excited when Jessica Cosmetics released "Gelato Mio!" her summer 2012 polish collection. This collection is made up of refined polishes reflecting the prettiest pastels of Italian ice cream, making it the ideal collection for sophisticated summer.

{Banana Peel}
Banana Peel is a gorgeous pale yellow creme.
{Barely Blueberry}
Barely Blueberry is a pretty pale sky blue creme polish.
{Lime Cooler}
Lime Cooler is a playful margarita green creme and a little bit brighter then the other colors in the collection.
{Strawberry Shake It}
Strawberry Shake It is a stunning pale pink creme. This polish would look fantastic at a wedding especially worn by a bride.
 {Surfer Boyz 'n Berry}
Surfer Boyz 'n Berry is the ideal Tiffany & Company blue.
 {Tangerine Dreamz}
Tangerine Dreamz is the ideal tangerine hue. Even if you are not into trendy colors this is a must have for your collection.

My overall thoughts: Summer is all about color. This collections is the perfect in between balance of brights and pastels, making it perfect for parties, lounging, travel and of course the office. This is one of those collections where every color is a must have. What do you think of these colors?


  1. Lovely shades, the turqouise and tangerine are my favourites!

  2. I love all these colours! Now I want to go on a nail varnish shopping spree :P xx

  3. The 2 blues and lime are my fave ! Just bought Essie's sexy divide , it's from their 2008 collection , very old ! hahahahha

  4. I love the blue, yellow and lime. SO CUTE!

  5. I'm not a huge fan of neon brights, so I love these shades as a way to add color without getting too crazy. Surfer Boyz 'n Berry looks like such a fun shade!

  6. I need every color! Love these. Never heard of it before

  7. I have to have all of these! I have tried 2 different yellows recently, and they each needed like 10 coats to be opaque! Is the coverage on these pretty good? They look really good!

  8. All gorgeous colours:)

  9. i love all of them, but after going thru them all, i think the last one, the orange looks amazing, the yellow is unique, very pretty!
