Summer Brights: Nail Polish Picks

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know I am usually all about the nude, pink nail polish shades. But by the time Spring and Summer are here, I always want to switch it up to some bright colours. Today I’ve picked my 4 favourite bright colours for this time of year!

The first is my current obsession! This is the Nail Colour Collection from Next, in the colour ‘Purple Haze’. It is like a pink-toned purple shade. This honestly has such a good gel effect – two layers of this looks like a proper gel manicure! The colour is really opaque, you could even get away with just one coat really. It lasts about a week, longer with a topcoat and is just a beautiful, every day colour that just has that extra vibrancy to it!

Next is from Essie (one of my go-t0 nail polish brands!) in the colour ‘Not Just  A Pretty Face’ which is such a beautiful colour. It is a bright, mid-tone pink with a subtle, gold iridescence to it. I love this for sunny summer days! It is a flattering shade and looks even better as you start to get a tan. I love the brush that this applies with too; thick enough to cover your whole nail in one swipe.

My third pick has to be the Nails Inc Gel Effect Polish (can you tell I like gel-style nail varnish?) in the colour ‘Mercer Street’. The whole collection is brilliant, but this shade has to be an essential for me as it is so bright and fun. It is a true, bright blue shade, without being too neon. It shines really well, giving that glossy, gel-style look.

Finally, I absolutely have to mention the Kelly Brook Nail Polish in the orange shade. I bought this from New Look last year and I have worn it countless times – I love it! This is a neon looking orange, a very vibrant colour. This looks beautiful with a tan in Spring/Summer, I also love pairing it with silver jewelry accessories for some contrast. If you want to go bright, you have to try this colour!

      I think it’s because nude shades are so wearable isn’t it! The blue is gorgeous, such a lovely summery shade xxx

      It’s one of my favourites for summer! You can apply one coat for a sheer colour or build it up, whichever you like! Xx
