Summer’s Most Popular Nail Polish Shades According to the University of Oxford

I don’t know about you but I’ve always been a huge fan of nail polishes and I can’t stop drooling over each and every color I lay my eyes on, however not all colors are appropriate for summer. Summer’s most popular shades seem to be divided into two color categories:  orange/fuchsia hues and blue/green hues.

  • Mint= Calm

Who knew that our nail polish shades can represent a particular feeling?

But what’s the shade of nail polish the majority of the women picked?? Red? Pink? Think again!
