What do you love the most about summer?  Do you even love summer?  For me, it's a bit of a love-hate.  I hate the heat and would stay indoors with the shades drawn, the AC on full blast all day if I could, but I also am a plant-hoarder, and as any plant-crazy lady (or guy) will tell you, there really is no substitute for bright sunshine.  But if you are looking for an easier way to get bright pops of color this summer, Sally Hansen has you covered with the Summer Solstice collection.  The nail colors in this summer-themed collection range from bright corals and pinks to softer pastels and golds.  I got to try out 3 of these colors - Koi Coral, Golden Glow, and Ocean Daze.  Scroll on for pics.

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel nail polishes are great for a quick at-home manicure.  The formula is easy to apply, goes on streak-free, and most of the colors I have tried are opaque with two coats.  The colors from the Summer Solstice collection are perfect for this time of the year – my favorite from the ones I have tried would be Koi Coral.  If you are obsessed with pastels, Tiffany blue kind of colors, then Ocean Daze would be the pick for you.  Both Koi Coral and Ocean Daze go on smooth and streak-free and need 2 coats to get a more opaque finish.  The photos above are without a top coat.  Golden Glow is a muted gold shimmery polish that goes on quite sheer at 1 coat, and even with 2 coats as above, it is still a bit on the sheer side.  This would work great on it's own, used as an accent color, or even as a top coat over other colors.

I am a DIY, at-home manicure person, and I have had pretty good experiences with the Sally Hansen nail colors so far.  They are easy to apply, last about a week on my nails, and are easy to change/refresh with regular nail polish remover (no scary scraping).  They are meant to be paired with the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel top coat (step 1 apply color, step 2 apply top coat), and they do look glossier and perform better with it.
