Summer Nails

I absolutely love painting my nails so for me, summer nails are a must a have. They can add the perfect touch to any summer outfit. I've picked out a few of the nail polishes I've been loving so far this summer. 

Before painting my nails , I always apply the No7 'Stay perfect' clear base coat. I've noticed this nail polish has helped improve the conditions of my nails, and protects them from being damaged when wearing nail polish. It also drys very quickly and provides a smooth base, to ensure your nail polish is applied easily. 

No7 'Stay Perfect' base coat

I absolutely love bright, coral/orange colours at the moment (looks amazing with a tan!) Fell in love with this colour when I saw it in the Rimmel London section in boots. It's called 'No tan lines here'.

Tanya Burr 'Mini Marshmallows'

Tanya Burr has a lovely collection of nail polish, and I decided to get the one in the light pink colour called 'Mini Marshmallows'. The colour is very subtle, and can vary depending on the number of coats, (I put three coats on to achieve this look). The colour is light, summery and gives a high gloss finish which looks lovely and elegant.

Barry M Gelly nail paint in 'Dragon'

The nail polish by Barry M is a similar colour to the Tanya Burr Nail polish, however is not as subtle as the colour is darker, and gives more of a bold 'baby pink' look. I currently have this colour on my toes, however I know some people aren't so keen on feet so I've spared you the picture, haha.
