Summer is well and truly upon us now (hurray!) and one of my favourite ways to incorporate those bright, sunny colours into my look is with nail polish. Here are my top 5 summery nail colours I’ll be wearing all the time this summer!
First up is Essie Mint Candy Apple, which is a gorgeous fresh minty-blue. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll already know how much I love it! It’s almost my favourite tone of blue. I’m also loving my other Essie polish: Allure. I’m really into white nails at the moment, but sometimes they can look a little ‘teenage-tipex’! Allure is a fab compromise; it’s a more sheer tone, which I think is probably meant for French Manicures. If you build up a few coats though it’s a lovely, quirky, off-white shade. I bought these two particular shades in my Exam Season Haul!
Third is Maxfactor Max Effect with Mellow Yellow. To me, there is absolutely nothing worse in the world of nail polish than bright yellow! Thankfully, this one is a soothing, calm, buttery yellow that’s both summery and sophisticated. Also from the Maxfactor Max Effect is something a little bolder – Hot Pink. This is a bright, shimmery pink with blue-ish undertones. The shimmer is lovely a soft though, so it only really shows when your nails catch the light. I wear this when I want something a little more flashy!
Finally, I couldn’t really write this post without choosing a polish from my vast Rimmel 60 Seconds collection. A colour that I’ve rediscovered recently is How Do You Lilac It?. It manages to be both a gentle, soft pastel without losing the brightness of summer.
