I'm loving all the lovely mint and coral shades that are in for summer, but I tend to always be drawn to pink nail polishes (I've told you here that I think in PINK didn't I)? Changing your nail polish to suit your outfit will give it an instant update and freshness, and is probably one of the easiest ways to incorporate colour in what could otherwise be a very boring or monotone outfit, for example: If you're wearing an outfit with turquoise in, pairing it with bright red nails and then the same coloured shoes/clutch bag will give it a completely different look than wearing it for example with golds or silver, so who says you can't wear the same outfit twice and giving it a whole new look?
So here are my favourite nail polish picks for Summer 2012 ~ this excludes my lovely new nail polish I picked up from the MAC Marilyn Monroe collection, which I will be posting about this week:
Essie in Mint Candy Apple I Revlon in Blue Lagoon I Revlon in Minted I Sass Diva (No Colour on Bottle) I Essence in 01 You're My Dragonfly Sugar
Revlon in Flirt I Essie in French Affair I OPI in Strawberry Margarita I Kangol in ShockIt I Essie in Jam N'Jelly
Essie: Mint Candy Apple I French Affair I Jam N'Jelly
I adore Essie nail polishes, not only do they have the cutest names but the range of colours is amazing, they dry really quickly and last very long. It's worthwhile having a couple of these pretties in your nail polish collection.
Revlon: Flirt I Minted I Blue Lagoon
Revlon nail polishes are amazing, they're very pigmented, have a stunning range of colours, and look out for their scented shades! Blue Lagoon is a scented one, and it's definitely a beachy smell, the scent also lingers on your nails so you'll be able to get a lovely whiff even after you've worn it a couple of days.
OPI in Strawberry Margarita I Kangol in Shockit
The OPI nail polish is one of my favourites, and I've worn it many times, it lasts forever, probably a week if not longer without chipping at all. Kangol is a really bright pink, and is really pretty.
Essence in You're My Dragonfly Sugar I Sass Diva
The Essence polish is the perfect nude, it's a very light peachy/apricot colour. The yellow looks like rays of sunshine on nails.
Essie in Silver Bullions I Essence: Circus Confetti, Glorious Aquarius and Make it Golden
A couple of glittery nail polishes is a must, and although it's hard to remove, these are perfect creating an accent nail or two or all of them if you want.
Yardley Fast Dry Top Coat and Bonder I Revlon Colorstay Gold Standard Top Coat
These are my favourite topcoats, the Yardley one helps tremendously with drying times, and once applied takes approximately 10 - 15 minutes to dry. The Revlon topcoat gives my nails a lovely glossy look and helps prolongs the wear of the nail polish.
I hope you enjoyed my picks lovelies, let me know of any new ones I can try?
