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.

What are you favourite summer polishes?

    Ooooohh I love the models own one, thinks it my fave colour haha! I have to agree that Barry M are fave brand though, I hardly ever find faults with their polishes. I do love an orange/coral polish for the summer xxx

    These are all lovely colours. I've been meaning to try the Rita Ora for Rimmel varnishes, particularly Lose Your Lingerie and the white one. Both stunning colours. Also, the Seche varnish looks so lovely, I love bright pink colours for summer. My favourite summer varnishes are either Meet Me at Sunset by Essie, Mint Candy Apple by Essie or Holiday by Chanel! xx

      They're lovely colours! I don't usually go for a bright pink but I fell in love with this one right away, it's perfect! Ah I haven't tried any of those. I have a similar one to Mint Candy Apple by MUA but I think I'll have to try the real deal soon xx
