Orange you glad Summer is a mere month away? We are. So much so that we’re already waving goodbye to the pastel themes of Spring, and embracing the bold, bright colours of Summertime. Nothing says Summer more than an audacious citrus hue: tongue-staining orange popsicles, a cheeky jug of sangria, a brilliant sunset— need we say more? That’s why we’ve compiled five electrifying orange nail polishes to emulate the Summer months. It’s time to paint those nails pretty!

ORLY Nail Polish in ‘Tropical Pop'

ORLY’s creamsicle orange polish is perfect for those wanting a more subdued and sweet manicure. The highly pigmented formula glides onto nails smoothly, leaving an opaque and long lasting finish. ORLY’s intelligently designed ‘gripper cap’ means, should the situation arise, you can paint your nails with meticulous precision whilst on a jolty commute.

ESSIE Nail Polish in ‘Braziliant Coral’

This lacquer is neon, brazen and completely unforgiving. A flaming hot orange pigment, Essie’s ‘Braziliant’ is a definitely a statement colour for the Summer. Its rich formula means you don’t have to apply multiple layers for a vivid finish—one or two should do the trick! Queue the photos holding up mason jar cocktails on a sunny terrace, because your nails will never look so Instagram worthy.

BUTTER London Nail Lacquer in ‘Chuffed’

Butter’s ‘Chuffed’ is an orange that is a little more unconventional. The varnish’s shimmer particles give it a coppery, rusty hue, making it the perfect accompaniment for a playful Summer’s evening. Fast-drying and long-lasting, this polish will add an instant burst of colour to your nails. Prepare yourself for a surge of compliments!

Leighton Denny High Performance Nail Polish in ‘I Love Juicy’

A flirtatious orange-red, Leighton Denny’s ‘I Love Juicy’ is perfect for those wanting a traditional colour with an edgy twist. Its extra-amplified formula gives a glossy finish that is chip resistant and enduring, allowing you to enjoy long Summer days with pristine nails. Plus, the bottle’s minimalist packaging makes it a nice addition to the vanity table.

Red Carpet Manicure Nail Polish in ‘Mimosas By The Pool’

Aptly named for the Summertime, Red Carpet’s LED gel polish accentuates nails with a zesty grapefruit hue. After applying the varnish, set it with LED light for just three minutes to achieve a colour that will last for weeks. For manicure enthusiasts, nothing beats nails that don't peel and flake...well, besides a mimosa!
