I know we’re still enjoying Spring (or waiting for it to actually arrive) but Summer is just around the corner and I’m ready for bright, bold summery polish. This week the Top 10 Tuesday crew is talking summer nail polish colors and I couldn’t narrow my favorites down to just ten shades so, instead, I’m sharing my favorite Summer 2014 Nail Polish Collections.

butter LONDON Lolly Brights (review) - Between the gorgeous foils and super saturated cremes, this collection hits on everything I love about summer nail color.

China Glaze Off Shore (review coming) – I’ll be honest, it’s been a while since a China Glaze collection thrilled me but this rainbow mix has me giddy. I mean, look at the blues, greens and purples. You guys know those are my colors so I’m all about it!

Deborah Lippmann 80s Rewind (review) – As an 80s baby, the names and theme get me just as much as the rich, bright shades do. As much as I love the Deborah Lippmann glitter party of summers past, these cremes are outstanding and such a breath of fresh air.

Essie Summer 2014 Neons “Too Taboo” (review) – As you saw in my Multi-Color French using Too Taboo, these are not your traditional neons. You don’t need a white base and there is no streaky, matte formula to contend with. They’re simply fantastic!

MAC Alluring Aquatic (review coming) – Summer calls for metallics and just as I was smitten with MAC Fierce Entrance and Magnificent Feast from Holiday, Shimmerfish, Neptune and Submerged have stolen my heart as well. And that packaging, can you even?

Maybelline Bleached Neons – Not quite pastel, not quite neon, the Bleached Neons are what I would call energized pastels. I showed them off in my Interlocking Dots Manicure and, for the price, they are worth checking out.

Morgan Taylor Island Treasures (review) – I’m just getting to know the Morgan Taylor line and, so far, I’m impressed. The formula is silky smooth and pigmented and wears really well. With obvious “me” shades, the Island Treasures collection immediately caught my eye. And even though I’m not really a pink girl, every so often I crave a hot pink, and Tropical Punch is stunning.

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Beach Paradise (review) – This collection is a winner for Summerlime alone. Fortunately, it’s not the only gem to be discovered. Leis-y Days is worth seeking out and, I mean, look at that blue!

Urban Decay Summer 2014 (review) – I can’t tell you enough how much I love Chaos. If I did make a Top 10 list of summer polishes, it would definitely be at the top. Then again, I adore everything about the new UD polishes; the bottle, the brush, the formula, the tightly edited colors.

Zoya Bubbly & Tickled (review) – The Zoya summer collections continually hit it out of the park and this year is no exception. I love the shimmery holo glitters in Bubbly and the full-coverage cremes in Tickled. The fact that they pair so well together just adds to their allure.

    I keep hearing how great Morgan Taylor polish is, I really need to try it out.

    Great picks! There all such bright and fun colors for the season.

  6. Viktoria says:

    Besides those you named, I love OPI Neons 2014 – wearing them right now.
    And among those named in the post, I’m just crazy about Deborah Lippmann Video Killed the Radio Star. The day I was wearing it I just couldn’t stop staring at my nails, such a bold and happy color.
    By the way, do you think Zoya Ling is close to this Deborah? Is Zoya lighter, maybe?

  7. Phyrra says:

    I need some of the Zoya Tickled and Bubbly. I loved your interlocking dots mani and tried it myself with Orly Baked.

  8. LMAO I love that we both did collections. I don’t feel so insane anymore! I’m so mad I forgot about UD and DL! I love them too! Grrrrr

  9. Christine says:

    The China Glaze collection looks gorgeous :-)

  10. Anna says:

    The China Glaze ones stand out for me. I also love the look of ModelsOwn Polish for Tans collection. Roll on summer

  11. You know you are costing us money don’t you? So many gorgeous polishes but only 10 fingers and 10 toes. I love your choices.

  12. Marissa Lee says:

    My mind’s set on the China Glaze set (it’s so complete for Summer!). Looking forward to the Deborah Lippmann 80s Rewind review!

  13. jbrobeck says:

    My favorite on your list so far is China Glaze, but I haven’t gotten my hands on the Essie’s yet!

  14. We chose lots of the same shades!

  15. deerstop says:

    I’m interested in the Morgan Taylor brand as well! The only Morgan Taylor polish that I know of (and WANT) is Morgan Taylor “Could Have Foiled Me”.

  16. Amanda says:

    Man, I am actually pretty intrigued with that Essie set… I’ve been pining for the Zoya sets since you first showed us them a few weeks back, but now I’m going to have to see which of those colors come in the little mini cube for the Essie’s…. Amazon, here I come!

  17. butterdaisy says:

    I’m wearing MAC Submerged right now and have had it on for five days. The wear is incredible and the multichrome fantastic. Definitively stare worthy. So many polishes, so little time. Thanks for sharing all these collections.

  18. Oooh I think I need some of those Sally Hansen polishes! Beautiful :)

  19. You are seriously killing me here! Too much pretty!

  20. Betty says:

    I am hooked on the Lolly Brights and just love them and would like to try the Zoya Bubbly. The problem is that I have so many bottles of other brands laying around I probably shouldn’t buy more.

  21. Elizabeth says:

    Can’t wait to see your China Glaze Off Shore swatches and review! They’re my sentimental favourite brand, but it’s been a while since one of their collections really wowed me too. This one just might do it, though!

    Looking forward to the Essies too–the pigmentation looks amazing!

  22. Kristin says:

    I want them ALL!!!
