Happy Monday! It’s time for another Makeup Wars! This time we’re bringing you our best Summer Manis. I’ve got an awesome mani for you as well as several favorite shades to look at.

For my mani above I used Pretty Serious The Pink One for the bright pink that has intense blue shimmer. For the white nails, I used a base of Illamasqua Scorch, then layered KB Shimmer What’s Your Damage? on top.

      Ohhh this is why I like you so much :) I have almost all of these (I need to get the Ninja Polish Coral!) and I just did a similar mani (I used Don’t Pink Twice but almost used The Pink One). Such a fun mix of colors, takes me back to the 80′s :D
      Great mani and great review!!
