Here is a list of my favourite nail polish colours, every colour of the rainbow in fact, from my collection.
Best RED: Orly's Monroe's Red is that perfect cherry poppin' red with a creamy laquered finish, a la Marilyn.
Best Orange: GOSH's Peachy is my favourite. It isn't a true Tang kinda orange but, more a softer, smoother Orange Float with extra ice cream colour. yum
Best Pink: China Glaze's Flip Flop Fantasy. Do you look like you could pass for a vampire extra on True Blood? Not with this colour. It is like Insta Tan, even on the fairest of the fair. It is a unique super bright warm pink, with almost a coral undertone.

Best Yellow: Orly's Spark is a bright banana yellow that calls for a Pina Colada in one hand and a bottle of Banana Boat SPF 30 in the other. Don't worry, I'll do your back.
Best Green: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear's Mint Sorbet: I just got this, and I love it! It is that creamy light green colour, without a trace of blue. Cool and refreshing, just like the name says.

Best Blue: China Glaze's Blue Sparrow is a true American blue ( a little late on this post). It reminds me of the fourth of July with its glittery formula. 3 coats and a top coat, are a must for this polish, but don't let that deter you, a welcome change from the baby blues of summer.
Best...other blue: GOSH's Ocean. Okay okay, I could not pick just one blue! This one is so unique with its swirling green and blue colour and almost a duochrome finish. This is probably what a mermaids tail looks like.
Best Purple: China Glaze's Flying Dragon, a kick ass neon purple infused with purple and blue glitter. Top coat and several layers are a must for this polish, but it is well worth the wait. Go purple or go home!

Best Metallic: Revlon's Copper Penny, a rich glitter packed colour that applies like no body's business! Find one, pick it up, and all summer you will have good luck!
Best Nude: Essie's Topless and Barefoot, looks especially wicked on my tanned tootsies, a great nude with no brown undertones, wears well by itself but looks especially gorgeous under...

OPI's Teenage Dream by Katy Perry, a light pick packed with pink and iridescent glitter. Forget Teenage, this fun colour will look good on any age!

Okay, so this was more like Top 11 polishes, but it doesn't have quite the same ring to it, does it?
What polishes are you loving for summer?
