I remember when I used to be the type of person who rarely painted her nails but since I turned 17 there has generally been no stopping me... I now paint my nails on a 1/2 week basis and I am absolutely loving it. I wanted to share with you all my top 5 favourite nail polishes for summer so hopefully if you like them you can purchase them. :)
Barry M - Silvery Lilac £2.99
#1 I guess you'd expect all my top 5 summer polishes to be really bright but I just had to put this on my list. I got this from a £50 Barry M goody bag that I won a few months back, I only started using this about a month ago because I thought it was too precious to use. I love this polish because it's just generally really shiny and you can see hints of bright lilac hence the name. I think it's stunning especially for a summers night when you're off to a party or just out with friends. This is £2.99 from Barry M which I think is super adorable. I've used it a few times but it's staying strong and there's still so much left, it takes about 2 coats to get that full effect.
Elf - Mint Cream £2.50
#2 I think this is my all time favourite nail polish. I remember I ordered this back in March with my birthday money and I was after a teal colour but they weren't in stock so I thought this would be okay. It's a lovely minty colour definitely amazing for summer to liven up those outfits. If you love your pastels like I do then I definitely recommend this to you. Back in March this nail polish only cost me £1.50 total bargain but has since gone up to £2.50 which I'm not fussed about because Elf do fabulous products. It takes about 2-3 coats to until it's perfect on your nails and it dries super quickly.
Rimmel London - 60 Seconds 619 Pulsating £3.69
#3 This polish is my mums but I've taken it so now it belongs to me. ;) I need to start off and say I adore Rimmel London because I'm not sure if I'm the only one who likes this but their nail polish brushes are so thick and it makes is easier for you to apply to your nail. This is one of Rimmel's 60 seconds to dry nail polishes and it definitely does take around that time. Since the brush is so thick it takes about 2 coats to put on and look good then dries like instantly. I think this has a summery vibe to it and to it's a purple colour but I think it's sort of a dark pink? at £3.69 a bottle you can't go wrong.
Collection 2000- Hot Topics Lemon Soda £1.79
#4 This had to definitely go into my top 5. When deciding the perfect colours for summer I think you've always got to have some yellow in there. I got this a few months back maybe in April I think? I got some other Hot Looks polishes because it was when they had their 3 for 2 offer in Superdrug so I just couldn't resist. I actually haven't really worn this that much I think this is probably my second time wearing it because when I bought it the weather wasn't very nice so I thought it would be best to say it for summer but the British weather is really letting us down. :( This is just perfect for wearing with those cute little dresses in the sunny weather. Mine always take about 3 coats to really quick in then as it says on the bottle it definitely is a "Fast Dry." £1.79 is fantastic for this and they've got some many other great colours like this in their Hot Looks collection.
Missguided - MissBehave Pink Nail Splash £5.00
#5 My last polish on my list is from Missguided and I think I got it 2 years ago in a Cosmopolitan magazine. Don't you just love amazing goodies in your magazines? I think each magazine contained a different colour. I was certainly very pleased with this one. It's such a cute pink and looks adorable on your nails. If you want a nail varnish that isn't too bright then this is definitely for you this summer. It's lasted me 2 years and there still is so much left. It's priced at £5.00 which some may say is expensive but you really do get your moneys worth. It takes about 2 coats to settle and it doesn't take long before it's dry. This pink is perfect for summer.
I hope you've enjoyed this post from me, I had a lot of fun writing it up. Also, thanks to everyone's who's commented on my post recently they've been so helpful and I really appreciate all of them.
