We can't be the only ones doing everything we can to prolong our summer season. Technically it stretches into late September, so we have at least four weeks left, right? (Let's hope Mother Nature plays nice.) So let's look to hot, happy, outrageously girly pink nail polish as a waning-summer antidote.
La CC -- La Couleur Couture Nail Lacquer in 1950 ($14, kissandmakeupstore.com): A creamy rosy shade that dries quickly, this sweet pink nail polish is a vegan formula.
Maybelline New York Color Show in 180 Crushed Candy ($3.99, drugstores and mass retailers): A super-bright, shimmery shade that triggers smiles.
Sephora + Pantone Universe Spectral Lacquer in Purple Wine (now $5, sephora.ca): A Gimme-That colour, the best holographic pink of the summer. Maybe best holographic pink ever.
Nicole by OPI A Like-Haley Story..., from the Modern Family Collection ($10.99 at Shoppers Drug Mart): Shiny. It’s shiny with tiny iridescent bits for a little bling.
Maybelline New York Color Show in 85 Chiffon Chic ($3.99, drugstores and mass retailers): Now I just want cotton candy.
Essie The Girls are Out from the Naughty Nautical Collection ($11 if you can find it anywhere): Fuchsia with a twinkle -- stunning on toes!
