As the seasons change one of the first thoughts many of us have  is, "what color should I paint my nails?" This past year we've had to learn all the at-home nail care tips and, now that we're practically pros, it's time to start thinking about what our new signature summer nail color will be.

Thankfully, the nail polish brand Essie has got us covered with the release of its latest limited-edition summer collection (opens in new tab). This year's theme is bold and Essie made sure to provide us with the brightest most vibrant colors to choose from.

The collection features five colorful shades that have equally happy names to help us kick off our summer on a good note. No matter how the weather turns out this summer (let's hope the Farmers' Almanac predictions aren't true), having a bright and colorful manicure is one way to keep your day from turning gloomy.
