Summer Nail Polish Picks

It's seriously difficult writing a post all about summer polishes when it's currently raining outside and I've got the heating on. In June. Ridiculous! But never mind, we'll power on in the hope that these nail polishes will at least get you feeling summery :) 

China Glaze 'Mimosas Before Manis'
Models Own 'Bubblegum Pink'
Barry M Gelly 'Lychee'
Barry M Gelly 'Prickley Pear'
Maybelline Color Show 'Go Go Green'
Lately I've been loving me some neon! Whether it be in the form of clothing, a statement necklace or in this case a nail polish. Model's Own Bubblegum Pink from their neon range has my name written all over it. It's an almost coral toned pink but its super bright and opaque after 2 coats! I recently wore this on my toes on a night out and it really stood out. I'd love to try more from their neon range. This one's definitely my ultimate favourite for the summer.

I couldn't have written this post without including a couple of favourites from the Barry M Gelly range! They've been hugely popular, no doubt due to their affordable price and excellent quality, I've spoken before about my love for Barry M and they're definitely the king of high street nail polishes :) I love their Gelly range, particularly Lychee (a true nude) and Prickley Pear (a pastel lilac) as they give a really shiny finish with no need for a top coat. Here's a photo of me wearing Lychee with some fun holographic glitter.

I'm obsessed with lime green at the moment which is odd because I used to hate it! But I've seen alot of lime green nails on YouTube and Pinterest in recent months and it's perfect for summer. This Maybelline polish in Go Go Green is more of a subtle lime than a neon but I love it! A couple of months ago I paired it with the Prickley Pear Barry M polish when I had my almond shaped acrylics on and I loved having such a fun combo. 

Last but not least, the only China Glaze polish I own! Mimosas Before Manis is a coral creme with an iridescent finish and it's seriously gorgeous. I love the shimmery look to it and coral's always a winner for the warmer months :) 

Let me know what polishes you're loving for this season!
