Essie Penny Talk - Pink gold metallic. I typically do not go for metallic polishes, but I could not pass this up when I saw it from the "Mirror Metallics" collection at Walgreens. The metallic is not over the top. It is actually office friendly and quite a fun shade to wear. My Mom saw my nails and mentioned she loved the color too, so I gifted her the bottle I bought.
SpaRitual Hunk of Burning Love - Warm red creme. This was my first SpaRitual nail lacquer experience from a nail salon. I absolutely love this brand after I tried this polish. The color is so shiny and my finger nails were chip-free for about a week. I learned more about this brand from the Sephora website:
SpaRitual® products are crafted for the enlightened consumer, using naturally formulated, vegan, certified-organic, and fair-trade ingredients. The brand approaches beauty as a holistic connection to oneself and to the environment, bringing eco-awareness not only to their line of body and hand products, but also in their efforts towards sustainable packaging and sourcing methods. All of SpaRitual’s natural formulas are free of synthetic dyes and parabens, as well as toluene, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, and DBP.
This particular color was also mentioned in The Zoe Report this month.
Revlon Runway Pearl - Sheer white with pink opalescence. This may be a limited edition color. I used two coats and got a pretty sheer and clean look. I think three coats would look more even and better. Revlon makes fabulous nail polishes at drugstore prices and their Quick Dry Top Coat is pretty amazing too. Big fan here!

Bloggers are saying this is a dupe for Chanel Nail Lacquer in Pearl Drop, see swatches from Temptalia's post here. What do you think? I think not exactly, Chanel's color seems to be more opaque and whiter from the pictures.
What nail polishes are you loving this summer?
Thanks for stopping by. Until next post......
