Spring/Summer Nail Essentials

Spring/Summer Nail Essentials

If you live in the UK and have been experiencing the lovely weather you’ll know that Spring is finally here! With news reports stating that Scotland is actually hotter than Hawaii right now, I thought it was only appropriate to share a few of my favourite Spring/Summer nail polish shades.  I'll be doing a little mini-series of Spring/Summer beauty “essentials” so keep your eyes peeled!

Spring/Summer Nail Essentials

Avon Arabian Glow Nailwear Pro in Sunshine* -

Some people might be thinking, Yellow nail polish.. are you mad?? While yellow might not always be the most flattering shade, it looks great in the summer with a tan.  For years I used the same cheap yellow nail polish about once a year and I decided it was about time to throw it away and luckily Avon sent us this gorgeous shade to try out a while back.  Avon has one of my favourite nail polish formulations and I’ve bought so many myself over the years.  The only negative I would say is that you have to apply about 3 coats but that’s to be expected with yellows.

H&M Hello Kitty Nail Polish in Turquoise -

I’m not entirely sure if H&M still sell this nail polish but they have a great range of nail polishes so I’m sure you’ll be able to find a similar shade.  My most bought shade of nail polish is usually a greeny blue and this is no exception.  I’d say it was a sort of Tiffany blue shade which is really flattering if blue nail polish isn’t usually your thing!

Avon Nailwear Pro in Lux Lavender* -

Purple isn’t a colour which would be my first choice but this is a gorgeous shade.  I think pastels and florals are always going to be around in Spring so this shade is definitely one to look out for.

O.P.I Nail Lacquer in Pink Friday -

One of my new favourites from the Nicki Minaj collection.  I think everyone should own a pale pink shade of nail polish, it isn’t too dramatic which makes it really wearable.  If you’re like me and tend to stay on the pale side it works really well but with a tan it looks really lovely too, very versatile!

Avon Nailwear Pro in Vintage Blue -

This is my favourite shade for Spring/Summer.  I find it really hard to get my hands on a pale blue “vintage” shade and this is absolutely perfect.  The colour goes really well with soft florals and light denim which I’ve been living in at the moment and as I mentioned before the formula is one of the best.
