One of our favorite things about summer beauty? The lovely, limited-edition nail polishes that are released each season by those brands we absolutely adore. And this summer is no exception.

Here, we’ve rounded up five of our favorite collections for 2013—as well as the one standout shade from each that we’re totally obsessed with.

Pretty in Pink

Paul & Joe’s Summer 2013 Limited Edition Nail Polish Collection contains five bright, pastel colors that scream summer fun. And as always, Paul & Joe nails it with the packaging. The 1950s vintage-style bottles are perfect for any retro vanity.

SHADE WE’RE OBSESSED WITH: The perfectly pink Miami.

Awesome Emerald

Zoya’s 2013 summer special consists of two limited edition, sun-inspired lines: Stunning, which contains six shiny, creamy colors,  and Irresistible, which includes six majorly metallic shades.

Summer Shimmer

The polishes in Deborah Lippmann’s 2013 ‘The Mermaids” Summer Collection are all filled with sparkly sequins, which certainly make for magical manis.
