Nail Edit: Summer Ready

June 09, 2014

It feels like it has been ages since I sat down and whittled through my nail polish stash, mainly because with my job I can't wear nail varnish so having perfectly painted nails is something that doesn't happen all that often. Having said that I thought i'd have a good old sort out this week, and get rid of any that were unusable or ones that I do not wear, and by doing this I pulled out a few that would be great for the upcoming summer months.

Kicking off with my favourite kind of colour for summer and this the Topshop 'Celestial' Nail Varnish. I love the Topshop nails range and when I saw this shade floating around the beauty blogger world I just had to have it. It's the perfect muted pastel blue that looks amazing with a tan but also works well for use pale people.  Next up is recent purchase, and this is the Models Own 'Beach Bag' Nail Varnish. This is from their newest range specialised to look great with a tan, and you can see why. This is such a pigmented and vibrant orange coral shade that could almost pass for fluro but it does look lovely with a tan, or a fake tan in my case. 

These next picks are my favourite from last summer, starting with the Bourjois 'Turqoise Block' 1 Second Gel Polish as I love everything about this product. This is such a vibrant fun shade for summer and the formula of this stuff is great as it dries super quick and you often only need one coat, which is great if you're in a rush. I love wearing this one on my toes, but also looks good on the finger nails with a bunch of rings for that festival summer vibe. This next pick is a staple colour to rock during the summer months and i've gone for the Relvon 'Bubble Gum' Scented Polish. A vibrant pink is a shade every girl needs, as it looks great with a tan and just brightens up an outfit. Again, I love wearing this on my toes and with a pair of white sandals this would look great. 

Last but not least is another staple shade for me and this is the Rimmel 'Sweet as Sugar' Last Finish Polish. This is my alternative to white nails, as I always struggle to find a white so I opted for this pastel blue toned white as it just brings something new and different to your bog standard white. Also the formula of this stuff is great and the brush is perfect for coating the entire nail is one sweep. 

So those are my picks for summer. What shades are you opting for this summer?
