Nailed It: Upcoming July Releases

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by the blog for another Nailed It!

We’ve decided to mix things up a bit and introduce you nail-polish lovers to another brand we really adore, Zoya. Their color selection is fantastic and the polish is long-lasting. We’ve actually texted one another before that the polish was holding up so well, but we were ready for a color change before it even started chipping. So without further ado, here are two books we’re anxiously looking forward to in July.

The Distance Between Us by Kasie West

Add to Goodreads | Purchase on Amazon

It took me so long to pick a book to feature in this month’s NAILED IT. As always, there are so many pretty covers but I love this one a ton. The sun in the background, the color of her dress, the subtle plaid of his shirt. So great. I’m almost done with THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US and I am really liking it. The colors are kind of fall-ish but I could definitely see them popping during the summer too. It’s like the romantic part of summer — at dusk and holding hands!

Truly, Madly, Deadly by Hannah Jayne

Add to Goodreads | Purchase on Amazon | Read Tara at Fiction Folio’s Review

I have to be honest and admit that there are so, so many stinkin’ books I’m looking forward to in July that I picked this one based purely on what I’ve been wanting to do with my nails lately. Dark nail polish has been a popular thing, but I feel it kind of phases out a bit during the summertime. I’ve seen so so so many girls rocking the dark nail polish with lovely coral or mint outfits lately. I absolutely love it! I personally want to push my summery colors aside to try this out. So why don’t you guys step away from the beachy reads and bright polishes to give this dark, mystery thriller a go with me?

Jennifer Dysart - Loving Gretchen, it’s so wearable for any occasion!

July 7, 2013 - 6:35 pm

Candice @ The Grown-Up YA - LOVE the Gretchen color! All three colors for The Distance Between Us (one of the books I’m DYING to read) are beautiful, but that one just seems like a great neutral color for year round!

July 7, 2013 - 6:08 pm

Joli @ Actin' Up with Books - Oooh, I would love Trixie.

July 6, 2013 - 7:34 pm

Ashley @ Ashley Loves Books - I’m drawn towards Diana, but more than 50% of my polish collection are reds! (And I have a large polish collection, trust me haha) I don’t actually wear orange, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE wearing it on my nails so I love Ginger! Trixie is on my wishlist for the Halloween months, somehow I think it would fit super well during then.

July 5, 2013 - 11:30 pm

Dee'z Dazzling Designs - All the colors are beautiful but I’d have to say Ginger is my favorite.

July 5, 2013 - 8:49 pm

Rebecca @ Reading Wishes - I already commented but forgot to say while I love them all, Trixie and Stella are my favourites 😉

July 5, 2013 - 10:42 am

Cecelia - It’s close between Trixie and Gretchen (they’re very different!), but I think Trixie wins today. I’m feeling sparkly.

July 2, 2013 - 9:33 pm

Angela - Am very interested in either Trixie or Raven, lol. I just got into nail polish and love that there is such a big community with so much creativity going on!! Am slowly building my collection 😀 So many colors, brands and the perfect accent choice!

July 2, 2013 - 5:17 pm

Daphne - i like raven the best and i really wanna read both those books 🙂

July 2, 2013 - 3:00 pm

Rachel - Great pairings once again. Looooveeee the ones for The Distance Between Us. In general, I LOVE Trixie. I love flashy nail polishes because I think they look great with black and I wear LOTS of black in the winter. And the summer. Silver is just totally my thing. I also like Ginger, but I probably wouldn’t ever wear it because orange and I don’t mix. It’s pretty to look at, though!

July 2, 2013 - 1:56 pm

Claira - I’m loving Gretchen and Diana!

July 2, 2013 - 11:35 am

Tammy - I always love a great basic nude.

July 1, 2013 - 2:04 pm

Summer - I only noticed afterwards that this was for U.S. only, so please ignore my entry.

July 1, 2013 - 1:47 pm

Summer - I so love the idea of matching your nails with the book you’re reading, super cute and creative. I’ve been very into oranges and corals, and anything in that range lately so I think Ginger would be my favorite.

July 1, 2013 - 1:36 pm

elena - Love these covers and colors!! I hope my library gets The Distance Between Us and now I’m inspired to paint my nails. 🙂

July 1, 2013 - 11:37 am

Judith - How have I never seen this feature before?! I loooove it! I buy way too much nailpolish, so I adore everything that has to do with that. Both of these combinations are so pretty, though the second one is definitely more for me. Love the fierce colors! I’ll be looking forward to more of these posts (and probably scrolling back through others :).

July 1, 2013 - 10:54 am

Alexa Y. - Am I allowed to say that I love all these colors a whole lot? They’re basically all the colors I would ever want to put on my nails lol. But let’s see, my favorites are GINGER and TRIXIE. What can I say – I’m a sucker for shiny things!

July 1, 2013 - 10:36 am

Tara - I love ALL of those colors! I think my fave might be Diana–it’s just very summery and pretty. Thanks for including my review of TMD 🙂

July 1, 2013 - 6:22 am

Ashton - I really want all of the nail polishes and books. I especially like Gretchen. It’s a nice color for everyday.

July 1, 2013 - 2:11 am

DannyBookworm - What a super duper cute idea!°!! Love this and the polishes look so awesome and pretty 🙂

July 1, 2013 - 2:00 am

Rebecca @ Reading Wishes - Looking forward to both of theses releases, especially TDBU since I read Pivot Point last week and loved it! I love these polishes and thought I have the bad habit of biting my nails, it’s something I want to work on because I do LOVE to paint my nails and yes to a vegan nail polish, woot! I’m not vegan but I”m vegetarian and I only like to buy cruelty free products so I’d love to try Zoya. Amazing post, guys!

July 1, 2013 - 12:17 am

Bookworm1858 - Great picks-I love seeing what covers you choose and what colors to represent them. My favorite is Diana!

June 30, 2013 - 10:25 pm

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - Gah, I seriously LOVE these posts!! I love love love both match ups. The color Trixie is SO pretty, it’s like metallic! Ginger also looks a bit metallic, which is just gorgeous. And Stella is such a pretty color all around. <3

Awesome, thanks for sharing, you two!!

June 30, 2013 - 8:55 pm

tabithasbookblog - I love that you guys are nail polish fanatics as well!! My collection is getting out of hand, but there are just So many colors to try! And brands, and shades of colors, and different finishes. AH. I really like nail polish.

Anyways – I think I’d choose either Gretchen or Trixie – I like my nail polish to stand out because I wear mostly neutrals.

And now – i’ve given you my life story. Thanks for the giveaway!
