My Summer Polish Picks

Friday, 12 July 2013

As the seasons change, so do my favourtie nail polish colours - it's a girl thing. For me, it's all about brights at the moment which make a statement and change things up. My mum always makes colour suggestions that tie in with what I'm wearing, but I'm not really too bothered about my nails matching my outfit. As my sister kindly pointed out the other day, I was wearing a bright pink top, had bright yellow nails and was sporting a lime green purse. Colour blocking is cool, okay. If you're a regular reader then you'll know I'm a Barry M freak, so surprise surprise, my five colour picks are all from my wonderful Barry M collection.



My picks are from all over the colour spectrum so let's start with the mint. Pastels were more spring for me but they still make an appearance on my nails sometimes. Mint Green is a lovely fresh colour which looks gorgeous with a tan. It's very easy to apply as are most Barry M polishes and should be a staple colour in every bloggers collection. Next up is a fairly recent purchase of mine which is Lemon Ice Cream. I'm not a huge fan of how this polish applies as in all honesty I find it a little transparent. I have to apply at least three coats and even then it doesn't give the best finish. It's still nice, but some of the other colours produce a better shine. But I'm in love with the colour so I'll try and perfect application so I can keep using it.


Next up is Fuchsia - a hot pink which I'm sure every blogger owns one shade or another of. It's the go-to colour when you can't quite decide on what colour to paint your nails as it's bright, vibrant and will always stand out. There's not an awful lot to say about it other than it's very trusty and very summery. Bright Purple is another fairly recent purchase as I bought it when I bought Lemon Ice Cream. I never usually go for purple polishes but this one is very striking and applies really nicely. It's also a great colour for toes during the summer months. Last but not least is Cyan Blue which is one of my clear favourites. The finish is gorgeous and it glides over the nail like a dream. The bright colour looks lovely with a tan and is perfect for any occasion.

What are your hot nail picks this season?
