The Trending Nail Colors for the Summer
Aug. 4, 2020
Rummaging through the collection, putting the neon orange, the pretty summery blue and some random shade thrown in, yet, still going for the basic cherry red or the pastels because they are a 'safe' choice. If you have done this for this summer where everyone is stuck in their homes most of the time, then we understand what you are going through.
2020 came with many surprises for all of us but that doesn't mean we can't indulge a little to brighten up the mood and change up the everyday mundane routines. We found some colours perfect for the summer that will bring you out of that funk and give your hands a beautiful and fun look. You can bring these colours to salons that have started to reopen or use them yourself, but they are sure to make you feel pretty nice once done. These are some of our favourites from popular brands and different finishes so you can find them easily but find some that will suit your aesthetic perfectly.
Chanel – Shade Cruise
Orange nail generally scares more of you because they think they won't look good with it on. We're here to put those fears to rest. Whether you have a tan or you don't orange is a summery shade that brings the perfect balance between fun and classy. This shade by Chanel manages to achieve that balance and looks great on your hands and your feet. It has a long-wear shiny finish.
OPI – Shade How Does Your Zen Garden Grow
Green shades are difficult to perfect. Especially if the greens are of a lighter tone. OPI hits the mark with its shade 'how does your zen garden grow'. How perfect is the name for this colour as well? This is a bright but not dark green colour that is not your usual pink. It will pop on the nails but the best part for those with darker skin tones is it won't look neon on you as well.
Essie – Shade Butler Please
Blue in nail polish that is universally loved. This shade by Essie is an old favourite for many. It looks beautiful against light, tan or dark skin. It is a vibrant electric blue that gives off a cool feel making it perfect for the summer.
Base Coat – Shade Maddie
Bright colours are perfect for the summer. Out of these bright shades, when we think of the purple family, this is the first one that comes to mind. The Base Coat nail polish in shade Maddie is gorgeous lavender that is the perfect blend of bright and pastel without leaning towards either. If you're looking for a non-toxic and vegan formula, then look no further because this lavender fits all your need.
Sally Hansen – Shade Shhhh-immer
Remember when the rose gold was everywhere? In makeup, hair colours, mobile phones and nail colours? Well looks like it is here to stay. This rose gold shimmer finish by Sally Hansen is extremely sparkly with a good colour payoff too after two or three coats. You can sheer it out with one coat if you're just looking for a glitter top coat on another nail polish or you can triple the coat and wear it alone. This colour was upgraded in their miracle gel top coat formula this summer which helps it lasts even longer.
Sundays – Shade No.17
Not everyone wants to experiment. Some people just know what they love and the kind of shades that will look good on them. Red is one of those shades and this red from Sunday's nail polishes is well-loved. It is a deep red that fits every skin tone. The formula is also vegan, non-toxic, and lasts several days without chipping.

Do It All Toner 🍃🍃
I have been loving the brand Truly lately ✨ I recently purchased this: 🍃TRULY - CBD Jelly Toning Solution 🍃 And it’s by far one of my favorite toners. Ingredients: 💚100MG CBD 💚Glycolic Acid 💚Tea Tree Oil 💚Organic Aloe 💚Rose Petal Extract This brand is also: 💚Vegan 💚Cruelty Free 💚Clean I use this every other night and it as tremendously helped my skin barrier and acne. I was really concerned about the glycolic acid irritating or drying my skin but it didn’t at all 🤩 I highly recommend this to combo and oily , acne prone skin. This will be a toner I keep in my night routine. I got it from Ulta (of course) for $24 (I paid $15 after coupons) Do you use CBD products? 🍃
Clear Hydrated Skin The Clean Way✨
Staying in the trend of clean beauty, I have found an amazing product to add to my everyday routine. Odacité SKINCARE - Blue Aura Cleansing Water This is a cleansing water that is marketed to use in place of your cleanser for a “quick” clean. When looking for a good cleansing water, you want one that is hydrating and gets your face clean. Keep in mind not all cleansing waters are designed to clean makeup (I highly recommend a cleansing balm and cleanser). About This Brand: ✨Vegan ✨Cruelty Free ✨Certified Organic ✨ NO: Fillers | Parabens | Nanoparticles | Petrochemicals | PEG | Synthetic perfumes | Dyes | Phenoxyethanol. This cleansing water is so hydrating and satisfying to use. It smells very fresh and a little goes a long way. What is very important to me is my dry spot aren’t tight or irritated. I have been using this day and night and have seen amazing results acne and skin barrier wise. I included this in my routine after a regular cleanser and before my serums. So essentially, I use this as a “toner”. I do this to clean up anything my cleanse left behind, or the cleanser itself. INGREDIENTS: ✨Tumeric: Amazing for hyperpigmentation and overall skin brightness ✨Holy Basil: I drink the tea and can vouch this is an amazing adaptogen that can overall benefit every aspect of your life. It combats aging and free radical damage. ✨Neem: great anti aging ingredient that helps protects your skin barrier. ✨Aloe Vera Juice: this is great for your skin barrier overall. It hydrated, protects and brightens. I highly recommend this cleansing water and it is on sale for $9 at Boxycharm Pop Up 🥰🥰
Drunk Elephant- The Littles 🐘
I won this cute little kit in a raffle & I couldn’t be more thankful! I have always wanted to try these products but never wanted to spend the money on all of them incase I didn’t like them! Inside this kit are the following products: DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 That’s literally a whole skincare routine! So far I started out my day with one of Drunk Elephants infamous “Face Smoothies” I washed my face with Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser & then combined C-Firma Day Serum, Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil, & Protini Polypeptide Cream together on my mixing trey with a disposable skincare spatula! I applied it all over my face & neck. Once that absorbed, I applied Umbra Tinte Daily Defense SPF 30 over my face & neck & was done! I love how the kit comes with steps to walk you through different routines you can use in the morning or at night! I will do a follow up review after I have used all the products for a few weeks! But so far, my skin feels & looks great! I have been breaking out lately & haven’t felt the best about my skin so I really needed this pick me up!! Thank you for reading! You guys are the best!! ❤️ @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
My Farewell To Cherie
Follow me on Ig for more skincare since Cherie is leaving 😭 @naturedskinv This has been an amazing journey and I’ve made soo many amazing friends. Thank you for all the love, conversations, and just overall happiness I’ve experienced on this app. I’m definitely sad, a little upset, and a dash of confused, but thank you @cheriefor giving me such an amazing confidence boost and guidance. The way the app shaped my thoughts on skincare has been insane. I’m still willing to forget this and call it a joke if y’all are! 😭 Anyways thank you again and hopefully we can stay in touch 🙏🏾
Clear skin the gentle way?
Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩 “buh-koo-chee-all” HERBIVORE - Bakuchiol Anti-Aging Serum I’ve already become a diehard Herbivore lover. So to receive this beauty was super exciting. When I started my acne journey on Cherie I was (and still am) a Differin Acne Gel stan. This was my choice of retinol and I wanted it strong to treat acne and boost my cellular turnover. Now that my acne is currently under control and it’s getting hot again, I definitely want something smooth and gentle. Bakuchiol is a gentler alternative to the very popular ingredient retinol. So essentially you’ll get overall youthful results for your skin. I haven’t tested this on my acne theory yet, but overall my face has been smooth and irritation free. This serum does not have a smell which I love for products of this caliber. I also love that it’s light and not drying at all. I use this at night and since i have a tolerance to retinol I use it every night. I haven’t been using it long enough to see results (about 12 weeks) but I definitely can’t wait to finish this. Have you tried Bakuchiol?

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
