    Our favorite part of summer is the annual minimizing of our routines: less clothes, less makeup, less hassle — because it's just too hot to bother. Our nails are obviously included in this summertime simplification, because honestly, who has the time/patience to camp out with the nail polish remover and the cotton balls when we could be at the beach?

    So, clearly, we're pretty pumped about CND's Shellac summer collection, available in salons now. Polish that lasts for up to two weeks fits perfectly into our hot weather routines, and the colors are simple, vibrant, and gorgeous. Grape Gum is probably one of the best purple nail polishes ever created, and we'll definitely be grabbing Lobster Roll for when we're feeling classy. Click through to see all the new colors and let us know what you think.
