Summer is finally here and now its time to crack open the bright nail polishes. There is nothing more refreshing than looking at your nails in the summertime and them being so vibrant and colourful. It truly is the little things in life that can brighten up peoples day...or maybe its just me.
I have a selection of my favourite polishes to wear in the summertime, all super affordable and all actually under £10. First of is Kiko 389, I picked this up in Barcelona last year, painted my nails straight away and was seriously impressed by not only the quality but the intensity of the colour with only 1 coat. This is a neon mint green, looks great with a tan and it kind of glows in the dark. Well not really but it stands out in the dark if that makes sense. Next are two from the Models Own for tan range. These are literally perfect for summertime. I have Beach Bag which is a neon pastel orange/peach and Sunhat which is a barbie, in your face pink. Both super opaque and really creamy. I will say they do need 2 coats to get full effect and its best to wear a top coat to prevent chipping. I find some neons have a tendency to chip easy.
Next is my fave of the bunch and its Bourjois 1 second gel effect in Blue No Blues, this is a bright baby blue. This was made for the summer and the formula is amazing. One coat and your good to go and its shines and last for days. Lastly is one of the first Essie polishes I ever bought. Essie Cute as Button, mainly bought because I seen it on Fleur de Force (very easily led) and whenever I wear it I go around singing Cute as a Button, which is a American Dad reference. if you got that, your amazing. Anyway long story short cute as a button is a bright but not too in your face coral. It just looks like summer is happening on your nails.
