Summer Nail Picks |




( Left to Right: Mua All Nude, Maybelline Mint for Life, Bourjois Melon, Barry M Grapefruit, Illamasqua Obsess, China Glaze Orange Knockout (neon) )

When it comes to nail colours i either opt for bright colours or pastels. Simple as that. I tend to stick to the same colours and end up having about 4 of the same shades in one colour which can be abit annoying!! Seen as its still the summer season i thought i would share with you some of my favourite nail colours that are perfect for beach days, holidays and even summer days out. Even though the sun is not shining today hopefully the weather might change to give us another couple of days sun before we have the constant rain everyday (grim). 

There is always a pattern when it comes to my holiday shades i always have a classic nude/white for when i return from holiday or are tanned. I think that this colour always makes you appear alot more browner and it always looks flattering. The MUA All Nude is meant to be a dupe for Essie's classic Fiji. It takes a couple of coats to build up to a good classic white but i love it and it only cost £1 which is a complete bargain. 

A pastel mint is one of my favourite colours for spring/summer and i love having this colour. I think that if you were wearing an outfit like denim it really brings that pop of colour to an outfit without being too over the top. I had alot of compliments when i wore this colour on my nails. Its so pretty!! I also love the brush of this polish and the long lasting wear. I went 6 days without a chip.

A peachy colour is right up my street. I love this colour as its not so out there but its a very classic colour. I think that this is perfect for beach days and it always reminds me of the beach for some reason. Again i love this formula as its so thick and fast drying. I really want to get my hands on some more colours from this range. 

Barry M Gelly polishes are still big within the blogging world and its definately a hype that is a big thumbs up. The Grapefruit shade is a lovely rosey pink shade and gives your super glossy nails too. Its so affordable and i always seem them with offers too. This shade is one that i would wear if i was wearing black. I like that pop of colour and its super girly too!!

Illamasqua Obsess is one of my all time favourite colours. Even though its a recent purchase of this year its just the most fun colour i have ever seen. Its a bright fuschia pink and is so so pretty for summer. I just adore everything about it from the brush to the formula. Love love love. 

Lastly China Glaze Orange Knockout is perfect for summer. The neon orange is an amazing colour and even in the dark it sort of glows up. This would be ideal for going out clubbing or if you just fancied wearing an eye catching neon colour and trying something new. 

What are your summer nail picks?
