Current fave summer nails

I'm enjoying doing my fave seasonal products so I thought I'd do nails as well. These are my most used nail varnishes this summer all super bright and really eye catching. They are also all really cheap and great quality.

Barry M blue grape - £3.99

This is the newest colour in my collection and I love it! I've wanted this colour for absolutely ages but whenever I've looked for it in Superdrug or Boots they never had it but I eventually found it! This is such an amazing blue and I've heard it's a bit of a dupe for Nails inc baker street which I've wanted for a long time as well but could never let myself spend that amount of money on a nail varnish. I think blues are my favourite shade of polish, I just always think they look so nice on and really suit my skin tone and this blue is so super bright and summery, it's part of the Barry M gelly hi shine summer collection.

Rimmel nail varnish in sunshine - £2.99

I think everyone has got to have a yellow in their collection, especially in the summer! When I first got this I really wasn't sure about this but I now really like it, and I love it on other people, it's the most summery colour I think a person can pick! This nail varnish quality isn't the greatest, it not very pigmented and it does chip quite quickly but I wanted to show the colour more than anything because it's soo lovely and bright! 

Barry M in greenberry - £3.99

I get the most comments when I wear this colour, it's just so bright and eye catching, it's almost neon!It's one of the Barry M gelly hi shine nail varnishes which all have really great formulations and are really great quality. I've currently got this on my toes and it's looks great with a tan!

Models own hedonist - £5

This is by far the brightest colour I own, it's so neon, it's from the models own Hedkandi collection which I think came out last summer maybe, all of the Hedkandi collection is really bright and summery. I saw this colour on a girl and instantly had to go up and ask her what it was, it's so so lovely and really eye catching, I also get a lot of comments when I wear this too. It's so bright it almost glows in the dark, it glows in a club under the uv lights!

Look beauty glitter top coat in sequin effect 24 - £5

This wouldn't be a favourite without a glitter top coat! I whack this one out every summer without fail it's so lush. It's a clear colour with iridescent glittery shimmer in it, it's changes colour depending on what colour you're wearing underneath which makes it look great with any colour nail varnish. The best thing about this is that it isn't really annoying to get off, it's quite easy compared to some glitter top coats. It's just so so beautiful and more of a summery top coat, where as I generally think of Christmas when I think of glitter top coats but I don't with this one. 

I hope you enjoyed this post, I really like doing summer related posts!

  1. I really like the 'greenberry' colour its lovely! Great picks :)

  2. How does 'greenberry' transfer on the nails? Does it need 2 coats or is 1 okay? Trying to find nail polishes which only need one coat when on the go! xx

    1. Errrmm, I think it's alright with one thick coat but is perfect :)
