Best in Beauty ... Aloha nails

by Amanda Bedgood

Beauty come beach time is all about what will fare well in the water. And so, with my eyes on summertime and sand we take our first Best in Beauty to long lasting nail color inspired by the world's most beautiful beaches — Hawaii.

The newest OPI collection is an homage to island life from orchid-reminiscent purples to lush greens and (my fav) barely there pinks and vivid corals that harken to beachy sunsets over blue seas. I can't lie. I don't do funky nail polish on my hands. But, I continue to love a fun green on perfectly groomed short nails. And some wild turquoise or purple on the toes.

In the Hawaii collection the My Gecko Does Tricks is that perfect spring hue (pictured above) in the emerald family. My favorite is the classic subtle Do You Take Lei Away? (pictured on the left) — a super pale color that works with everything. For a fresh minty green try That's Hula-rious! and if you're really feeling adventurous a pineapple yellow with flecks of various colors is perfect for sandaled feet.

Find the Hawaii collection locally at Bath Haus. (And FYI, today happens to be 241 Thursday which means a free mani with a Haus pedi.)
