This hue is a great mixture of nude, grey and white shades. If you’re looking for a go-to neutral shade, Concrete Jungle is perfect. I’ll be sporting this discreet shade at the office. (Most shades available here; $12.50.)
Call My Buff

This nude shade looks fabulous on darker skin tones, so rock it once your summer tan has set in. The color easily transitions from season to season with a glittery topcoat for winter.

This bright coral shade will accompany me on all my summer vacations. If you're unsure about trying this season's bright shades, try testing one out as a pedicure.

I love summer because I can wear brighter nail shades, like this hot pink, without feeling like Barbie. This is also a fresh shade for a pedicure.

Poppy is one of the hot Pantone colors this summer and Clinique has hit the nail on the head with Happy ♥. The color actually does make you cheerful when you catch peeks of your bright nails throughout the day.
Red Red Red
7 / 17
In case the name confused you, this color is truly red. There’s no worry you’ll bring the bottle home and end up with a tomato or coral red like I often do when shopping for red lipsticks or polishes.

Party Red has darker hints than Happy ♥ and Red Red Red. I prefer this color on my toes to dress up my summer sandals and peep-toe pumps.

Black or brown nail polish can either look incredibly chic or too gothic. This autumnal color has warm burgundy and chocolate tones to soften the color. Paint your nails black honey to add instant sex appeal to a sweater dress when the weather turns cold.

This is my new wear-with-everything shade! Fizzy is one of Clinique’s metallic nail enamels, also with a glossy finish like the other colors in the line. These champagne and gold sparkles are fabulous for night or day.

Indie Rock mixes gunmetal grey with flecks of gold sparkle in a glossy metallic finish. To make the look even more rock'n'roll, paint four fingers Indie Rock and your ring fingers a deep plum.
Made of Steel

This metallic gray appears as a slightly sparkly black with darker blue undertones. Try as an accent nail paired with the Black Honey shade.

Hot Date is in the limited edition Summer 2013 collection, and these colors are sure to go fast! This vibrant violet shade is extra sassy.

Juiced up is a bright orange color, but with warm undertones so it looks less tacky than other orange shades available. Also limited edition.
70° and Sunny
15 / 17
This sunshine yellow is my favorite shade in the Summer 2013 line. Clinique nailed the sunny color with no hints of pastel or neon.

This royal cobalt color is a lovely reminder of the blue skies and water awaiting you after a long day at work. Warning: Daydreams will ensue.

Strappy Sandals is all glam in a glossy metallic finish. The finish is a sparkly silver perfect to accent some silver jewelry. The limited edition is a must-have.
