As the temperatures rise, so too does the pressure to pick the perfect polish to show off those newly bronzed digits. But with a seemingly endless array of shades to choose from, how do you even begin to pick the perfect polish for your weekly manicure?

Whether you typically go for the punchy polish that complements your new coral jeans (even though you'll only wear the pants once during the life of your manicure and be stuck with pink tips all week long) or usually stick with a signature neutral shade (if for no other reason than that picking one shade from the seemingly never-ending arraying of polish choices is anxiety-provoking), why not try something new this Summer and, instead, let your cocktail of choice be your guide. (Hey, it's guided you before, I'm sure, and at least this time the consequences are fewer and the results — at least in this case — always bright.)
