♡ Summer Nail Polish Picks

July 28, 2013


I'm sure I've mentioned before that I tend to prefer neutral and pastel nails over bright and colourful, apart from in summer when I feel brave enough to venture into the (slightly) more bright and colourful realm of nail polish. Due to the recent heatwave there's been quite a few polishes that I've been loving which are perfect for the summer months. 


1. Essie Fiji
My all time favorite nail polish, and if i'm perfectly honest, i do wear this shade all year round - though it does look particular good in summer when paired with a tan.

2. Essie Tart Deco
This bright coral is one of my favorite colours to wear on my toes in summer and just like fiji, it tends to compliment a tan. 

3. Essie Mint Candy Apple
I love mint nails and though I usually opt for a more pastel shade such as Essie's Absolutely shore, I've recently been loving this brighter version. 


4. Essie Go Ginza
This shade appeared in my Spring Picks but I think it's great for summer too - it looks lovely with white dresses and is perfect for when you want something colourful yet also elegant.

5. Bourjois 1 Seconde Nail Enamel  in (25) Melon
This one is quite similar to Essie's Tart Deco but has more of an orange, rather than pink undertone. The formula of this is also amazing, the wide brush makes application super easy and the gel finish looks really professional.

6. BarryM Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint in Lychee
Another shade that can be worn all year round, but there's something about the simplicity of it that just reminds me of summer. And of course, it compliments a tan.

What are your favorite polishes for summer?

  1. I love your photography :) I like a pink-coral colour for summer like Rimmel London 60 Seconds Coralicious though this is very bright, maybe not your cup of tea!

  3. You really like your pastels, most people go more neon when thinking of summer polishes. But I know Essie Fiji is a big time favorite.
