There’s nothing I love better than a fresh summer mani-pedi. While I’m in love with the nail art trend, and totally encourage everyone to give it a try (start with these great nail “stickers” /Polish Strips from Sally Hansen), there may be a few of you who insist on sticking with good ol’ basic nails. Thankfully, this season we have a bevy of hot new colors (hello, color-of-the-moment tangerine) from classic nail polish brands like Essie, OPI, Sally Hansen and Butter. Check out 20 of my favorite nail polish colors for summer 2012 after the jump.
