I had a viewer ask me what red nail polish I would recommend for the sunlit soft summer. Thank you for the great question! If your looking at Zoya nail polish it appears like “Zanna”, and “Aubrey”. Those reds by Zoya appear very pigmented and bright so you could buy a mauve nail polish and tone down one of their reds like I talked about in the video.


There are many lovely shades but it is important that the red has a touch of mauve/neutral-cool brown in it so it is not to bright or saturated in color. Think dusty red and pink! But Sunlit Soft Summer can handle some brightness as an accent colors or colors that are just in small areas and not as close to the face.


Here are some of the fans many beautiful red shades.


For the nail polish I am wearing in the video, I mixed two colors together. It would be great if the perfect color was in one bottle, but I couldn’t find my desired “red cherry” at Ulta. The color I found at first OPI “Chick Flick Cherry” was too dark and saturated so I softened it with my staple color Nina Ultra Pro “Bittersweet”.


More nail polish colors pulled from the fan…



Great shades of red in the eyeshadows from Ulta “Tiara” and Revlon “Wild Orchids”.


Lipsticks: Lorac Pro “Pink Taupe”, “Rosewood”, and “Cabernet” used with lipliner Urban Decay “Manic”.


Ross had some great shades of Sunlit Soft Summer mauve/purple/red/burgundy shades! I recommend checking them out!


The Burgundy is as dark as a red I would go for Sunlit Soft Summer, it would be gorgeous as a dress color at a winter holiday party! A lot of people tend to wear black and grey. You will really stand out in a good way in this color!
