Our Favorite Nail Polish from Sephora

Sephora is one of the first places we look for our beauty needs. It has several of our favorite brands including Fenty, but when it comes to nail polishes, these three shades are standing out. From Nails Inc. comes the vibrant line of Bright Ambition Nail Polish. Swipe on "Strictly Bikini" for a trendy orange or try "12 p.m. Somewhere" for a unique pink hue. "The Pops" collection by Christian Louboutin comes in 10 stunning shades—although the royal blue "Baraboum" is our pick for summer fun—and it features a tall cap with triangle brush. For a stylish neutral, pick up Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Polish in "160 Louise" (soft ballet pink); its soft pink undertones will pair well with practically anything you wear.

Our Favorite Nail Polish from Target

In addition to Sephora, we love shopping the beauty aisle at Target. It has great deals on top brands, including OPI, Sally Hansen, and more. As for the nail polishes that stole the spotlight this season, Essie's Gel Couture definitely makes the list. Available in over 30 colors, the collection features soft pinks and neutrals inspired by dance. (Our favorite is "Fairy Tailor.") For a brighter option, pick up "Glowstick" by ORLY. The vibrant yellow lacquer is perfect for a festival or concert. Lastly, don't miss out on Pacifica's 7 Free Nail Polish. Vegan and cruelty-free, "Unicorn Horn" is a beautiful white color with an iridescent shine you'll feel great about wearing.

Our Favorite Nail Polish from Amazon

Although you may head to Amazon for tech and home deals, you should also add it to your list for beauty essentials. You can browse the top sellers to get an idea, but these three nail polish brands earned a spot on our beauty counter—and hundreds of positive reviews. First up, "Snog" from Butter London. This pretty pink adds a punch to any summer outfit. For a more professional shade, check out "Sophisticated" by Revlon. The chip-defiant polish includes a ShadeLock formula for color that lasts. If you're looking to add some sparkle to your mani, be sure to pick up Zoya's "Selene." This mermaid-teal scored over 1,000 positive reviews and is a must-have for beach and pool days.
