Summer is HERE! And with the sunny weather comes a flourish of flip flops and new nails trends. The Zoe Report shared their top nail trends for this season, and we weren't surprised to see some of our favorite b-glowing brand shades featured in their list! Learn why these shades are receiving the spotlight and get the tools for the trends below.

BOLD ORANGE

Replace your hot pinks and peachy corals this summer with a bold orange! RGB Cosmetics 'Monarch' shade embodies this summer nail trend like no other. This brilliant, creamy, opaque polish is both five-free and cruelty free, making it as fun to wear as it is to look at. Bold orange fingers and toes are a great way to accessorize a neutral outfit in black or beige, or play-off a fun print.

Bold Orange Alternative: 'Citrine' by LVX

BRIGHT LAVENDER

Looking to transition your spring pastels into summer? Then you'll love this next trend! Keep your mani/pedi relaxing and sweet with a soft lavender lacquer like Deborah Lippmann's 'Do The Mermaid'. This fun combination of lilac base and lavender glitter complements any LWD (little white dress) you might be sporting this season!

Bright Lavender Alternative: 'The Royals Collection' by butter LONDON

MERMAID METALLICS

Mimic the summer-popular oceans and pools with your polish! RGB Cosmetics 'Cerulean' is a beautiful blue opalescent shade that goes well with denim and looks great at the beach. These magically mirroring shades look perfect when paired with gold rings and jewel-toned bracelets.

Mermaid Metallics Alternative: 'Waves' by The New Black

COPPER GLITTER

Looking for a more luxurious way to rock glitter this summer? butter LONDON 'Bit Faker' is a mahogany-toned polish from their Summer 2013 collection, made-up of gold and copper sparkles. This glamorous mani looks great against sun-kissed skin, and will easily transition into the fall season.

«Introducing Earth Tu Face -

When Sarah Busco and Marina Storm started making skincare products in their kitchen for personal use, they probably didn't anticipate their tinkering would go any further than their own home. However, shortly after their initial experiments, these two herbalists from California turned their recipes into a full-range of 100% natural skincare products. Having just launched in 2012, Earth tu Face has already received high praise from Marie Claire, Vogue.com, and Harpers Bazarre, as well as other top authorities in the biz.

Free from toxins and synthetic compounds, Earth tu Face believes you should never put on your skin what you wouldn't put in your mouth. With products designed to restore and rejuvenate skin cells, Earth tu Face is free from fragrances, fillers, preservatives, and chemicals, and uses reusable, compostable, and recyclable containers. Mother Earth approves!

We love their Face Serum, made with blue chamomile and carrot seed. This organic facial oil is great for all skin types, and can be used as a daily moisturizer in the morning or a hydrating night treatment, or both!
