As there has been a change in the weather, we thought we would reflect that with a change in nail polish colours! For the warmer months it just seems right to bring out the pastel pinks and bright blues. Carry on reading to find out about our love for these gorgeous summer shades .
The first two colours we thought we’d mention to you both have the same finish, these are from the Models Own Speckled Eggs Collection. These colours are so unique as when applied they give a speckled egg effect which looks so unique but also saves the need for having to do any nail art or statement nails. These also last a good week before they start to chip but they are quite difficult to take off, this is one that I would not recommend removing using a nail polish remover pot. The colours shown in the picture are ‘Magpie’ (the green one) and ‘Swan’ (the purple toned one).
The next colour which also happens to be Curls’ favourite is the Barry M Gelly Hi Shine colour in the shade ‘Blueberry’. It is such a nice bright blue which we also spoke about as one of our favourite products from the brand in our Best of Barry M post. Only two coats are needed for an opaque colour and he finish is glossy so we tend not to bother using a top coat for these formulations. Also at the moment Superdrug are having an offer whereby upon purchasing £6 worth of Barry M goods, you receive a free Gelly Hi Shine nail paint! this is definitely an offer to good to miss.
The last two colours, which also happen to be more recent purchases are the Beauty UK pink colour and the O.P.I shade in ‘My Boyfriend Scales Walls’ we probably chose this colour based on the name more than anything else! The Beauty UK shade unfortunately does not have a name written on the bottle but is most probably the nicest of the bunch to compliment a tan. The Beauty UK nail polishes we feel are completely under rated as they do not get as much love as they deserve. The formula is quite good as they do last around 3 days before chipping and two coats of this colour gives an opaque finish. Although some would deem the O.P.I lacquer as not a summer tone we both feel it is the nice natural one in the group to compliment most outfits and is just a safer option for those who are still at school and are not allowed to wear brighter shades. The O.P.I lacquers are known for their great pigmentation and staying power making it such an easy go to for those of us who do not have time to change their nail colours regularly.
If only it was summer all year round in the UK, then these would be the only colours you’d see us wearing! These are our favourite colours that just scream summer to us, but we would love to know what screams summer to you. What are go to summer nail paints, are there any that we missed?
