We have just about a month left of summer, which means there's still time to make use out of all of my favorite orange and brighter coral nail polish colors! I looked through my nail polish and picked out my favorites in this color scheme and was happy to find a pretty wide variety in brands and price.

Wet n Wild in Blazed is clearly the best value-- I definitely didn't expect much from a nail polish so cheap but it was awesome- you can see it on my nails in this post. I got it for under a dollar at Target a few months ago!
Julep in Sydney and Zoya Paz are a lot brighter and more pronounced orange polishes- they're really pretty on your nails but work really well on your toes too! I would also say they're the best in terms of formula & how well they apply. I can get away with one coat with both of them, though I usually apply two.
L'Oreal in Orange You Jealous is another perfect coral colored polish. From the name you'd expect it to be brighter, but as you'll see from the swatch below it's definitely more pink. I'm a big fan of this L'Oreal polish line and think it's one of the best you can get from the drugstore.
Essie's Haute as Hello is the perfect light coral, but the application is terrible and it chips in like two minutes (as most of my Essie polishes do)-- such a shame because it really is the prettiest color, which is why I still try and make it work!

What are your favorite orange or coral polishes? Are you sad to see the season come to an end or are you ready to pull out some darker shades?
