Top 5 Summer Nail Polishes

Hi Everyone. Hope you are all enjoying your week so far. I thought summer was here the weekend after we had some gorgeous sunshine but today it is now pouring down with rain. Typical!

In preparation for summer here are my top 5 nail polish picks...

Models Own - Shades.
This nail polish is from the latest Polish for Tans collection. It is a gorgeous coral pink that looks great on your nails or toes with a summer tan. I'm not normally one for Barbie-like pink shades but this is a more 'wearable' pink for me as it has a slight coral tone.

Models Own - Beach Bag.
Beach Bag is my favourite shade out of the Polish for Tans collection. It is a pretty peachy orange shade that again looks great with a tan and is also a really fun colour for the summer.
I also teamed Beach Bag with Shades (above) in my last blog post to create a gradient/ombre nail effect (LINK).

Models Own - Cornflower Gleam.
As you can see Models Own is my favourite nail polish brand with the first 3 favourites being from them! Cornflower Gleam is from the Hyper Gel collection. This collection gives a high gloss full coverage finish just after one coat. Cornflower blue is also one of my favourite shades of blue and this looks really pretty on the nails.

Barry M Gelly - Sugar Apple.
Last year I was raving about MUA's Pistachio Ice Cream and this year I have found the perfect dupe for this summer... Barry M's Sugar Apple. This is a gorgeous pale mint green/blue that I could easily wear everyday on my nails as it goes with everything! Also every time I wear this nail polish I get so many complements on the colour.

Seventeen Nail Effects - Tropical Punch.
For my last nail polish I thought I would add a top coat. Seventeen's colour clash nail effect top coat in tropical punch is packed full of matte glitter in various sizes and has a mixture of peach, white, lime and blue micro pieces and also larger pieces.
I like to add this to different base coats to give different looks to my nails and lately I have been loving wearing it on top of a simple white base coat.

What are your favourite nail polishes for summer? Any you recommend?
