Summer is all about the bright colours and pastel shades, and I’ve really been loving switching up the colours on my nails so I thought I’d share with you my favourite polishes for Summer!
(L-R) Collection Hot Looks - Fruit Salad / Rita Ora for Rimmel - Lose YourLingerie / Rita Ora for Rimmel - Orangasm / Models Own - Apple Pie / Barry M - Berry Ice Cream / Seche - Snapdragon
The overruling factor that makes a nail polish become a favourite of mine is the finish. It’s all well and good if it’s a gorgeous colour, but if it applies streaky, takes four coats to become opaque or looks dull and lifeless even after a topcoat, it just doesn’t do it for me. All the above polishes do none of those. I have to say the Barry M Berry polish is my absolute fave out of them all in terms of the finished look; it’s super shiny, long lasting and only takes two coats at most to create the perfect colour. I had been looking for an orange nail polish for so long so I had to snap the Rita Orange Oragasm up as soon as I saw it. I’d also seen some gorgeous Instagram pictures of the Rita Ora Lose your Lingerie, and though I’m not usually a fan of very polishes, I loved the look of it and wanted it as part of my collection. I bought the Apple Pie polish when Models Own had an offer on of five for £20 and although it’s probably my least favourite out of them all, it’s still undoubtedly a gorgeous colour. Finally, Seche Snapdragon is a fairly recent addition to my collection. I received it at an event nearly a year ago now but stored it away in my drawers. After a recent clear out I rediscovered it and realised I hadn’t ever used it! Of course I applied it straight away and fell in love. It’s a gorgeous bold and bright colour which is perfect for summer.
