Our Summer Beauty Awards is your guide to the best products on the market. Bloggers from our Lifestyle Collective test and review top skin, nail, hair, fragrance and makeup products for the season -- and we give you the scoop on their favorites!

In our opinion, pedicured toes always make it feel like summer. Since neutral and red nails are always in style, we love wearing a vibrant color in the warmer months. From pastel pinks to cool blues, our judges tried all of our favorite shades, so you don't have to.

Find all the summer nail color nominees in the gallery above.

While our judges are busy picking their favorite nominee in the summer nail color category, we want to know which are your must-haves! Don't see your favorite? Let us know the summer nail color you can't live without in the comments below!
