Summer Brights Nail polish ~ Swatches and Review

Hey everyone! How are you all doing today! I spotted these Summer Brights Nail polishes in Rite Aid recently. I remember it seeing last year too but was not much interested to try them. This time I couldn’t resist and bought two shades to see how they look on my nails. I’m easily attracted to bright and flashy colors. Summer bright Nail Color has quite a lot of bright and neon shades. I thought of capturing an image of the display and totally forgot about it. Even though I was very much tempted to buy many shades, I got only two thinking that I can buy more later if I like the two shades I bought. These polishes doesn’t have any name or number on them. I got a dark purple and a pink shade.

  • Pigmentation: These nail polishes are very pigmented. One coat shows the color pay off. Even though single coat is opaque enough, it does not look smooth on nails. So, I have two coats on to smooth out the imperfections.
  • Formula: As I said above even though these polishes are pigmented, it doesn’t go smooth on nails. That conveys how bad is the formula of Summer Bright Nail Colors. The consistency is way too thick and gloopy for proper application. Takes longer time to dry.
  • Finish: The pink shade has a dull finish even though it looks little shiny in the picture. Probably because of lighting, it looks a bit dull in reality. However the purple polish has a matte finish. When I bought these polishes I thought these may look little glossy but they are not. I liked the matte finish on the purple one.
  • Staying power: These doesn’t stay well on nails. Even though I left it to dry for about an an hour, I noticed it has smudged on the tips later and chipped the very next day. I feel that is because of the thickness in the formula.
  • Where to buy: Even though the formula of these polishes are not good, the color is catchy. If you wish to try you can buy them in Rite Aid. Each costs around $4 and quality is not good at all in comparision to the price.

I’m glad that I didn’t buy the whole bunch of them. It doesn’t last at all. Have you tried these polishes or any other shades from this line. How was your experience with them.

  1. Well if i were in to nail polish I would be sure to avoid summer brights!! I let my wife know to avoid them as well. Thanks for sharing.

  2. hi Demi
    well good thing I read your review and did not buy those polishes! Talk about disappointing in terms of quality! That’s too bad because I really like bright colors too. And the pink does look shiny, too bad it is dull in person. I hate it when polish does not apply well. It just ends up frustrating me. it seems like for the amount of efforts it takes to apply, it is just not worth the buy.

    • Hi Emily..Thank you for stopping by..I was very much disappointed with the result of this polish too. In the bottle it looked glossy and pretty but it was totally opposite on the nails with bad formula and no staying power.

  3. Hi Demi,

    How is it going?

    I have a little lady (my 6 year old daughter) and she absolutely loves nail polish, especially pink and purple.

    I allow her to wear nail polish like on holidays. Is there a special kids nail polish that you could recommend I get for her?

    You seem to be the right expert the ask this. I hope to get some good recommendations from you.

    • Hi Jason..Thank you for the comment. I can imagine how much your lil angel would be a polish lover. As I know, she can wear the general nail polish brands that is available in stores. However, there are some nail polish brands available in the market with no harmful chemicals such as Jenna Hipp, Zoya and many other. I feel using such polishes would be very healthy for her.!
