We know you’ve been wondering what’s been missing from your life, but don’t worry because we figured it out — more nail polish. How better to complement all the sundresses and gladiator sandals we’ve been stocking up on than with the season’s best lacquers?
We gathered up 16 of the hottest new colors and asked celebrity manicurist Eri Handa to work her mani magic and come up with five summer-perfect ways to wear 'em. Then we got crafty with our scissors and created some paper cut-out tableaux to showcase them in all their gorgeous glory. Click through to see our faves, plus some inventive ideas on how to rock them. They're everything you ever wanted, and so very much more.
