Summer Nail Colours

Today I wanted to share my three favourite nail polish colours for the summer season and talk about why. I recently had a really big clear out of all my nail polishes and threw loads away as usually I gel my nails with the SensatioNail kit but I wanted to mix it up a bit and let my nails have a rest this month. It's been really fun to wear brighter colours on my nails and rediscover some of my favourites and try out some new brands too. Read on to check out what they are...

Barry M Gelly Nail Paint
As I'm giving my nails a break from my usual gels, it's really nice to use a polish which still gives that effect but in a much easier way! I really love how easy this is to apply as the brush is wider than other polishes I own so the application is a lot quicker than I'm used to though it did definitely need at least two coats to be opaque .I'm actually wearing this colour right now as I think that it's really fresh looking and brightens up whatever I'm wearing. 

Lancome Vernis In Love Nail Colour
This is the first Lancome nail polish that I've tried and I'm so impressed with it. The colour is so beautiful, it's a cross between a bright pink and an almost coral shade. It was quite easy to apply and after two coats it looked absolutely perfect though I did use a top coat just to be safe. It lasted a really long time without chipping which is something I always look for in a polish. I'm going to be keeping an eye out for the other shades in the range!

 Orly Coastal Crush Polish
Coral is by far my favourite shade to wear in the summer months as I think that it's really flattering and is a great trick to make skin look a bit more tanned! This polish from Orly is part of their new Coastal Crush collection which comes in a range of six brightly coloured shades. I've only ever tried a glitter polish from Orly before so I was really impressed with the formulation of this one. I did apply two coats but to be honest, I probably would have been okay with just one as the colour is so vibrant and perfect for summer!

Thanks for reading :)*
