Although I typically stick to nude nails throughout the majority of the year, I do like to switch it up to something a little brighter for summer. I’ve managed to pull together quite a few of my favourite summer nail polishes (including some classic mints and corals) so without further ado, here they are!
ESSIE NAIL LACQUER IN ‘TART DECO’
I love anything coral for summer, and this nail polish ticks all the boxes. Essie’s formula is always super creamy and long-lasting, and this shade looks especially beautiful with a tan!
BUTTER LONDON NAIL LACQUER IN ‘KEEN’
This polish is a beautiful pale peach that just screams summer – it’s really easy to wear and works with any outfit. The only downside for me is that this has quite a thin formula, but you can get an opaque finish with about three coats.
ESSIE NAIL LACQUER IN ‘MINT CANDY APPLE’
‘Mint Candy Apple’ is one of the cult favourite shades from Essie, and for good reason! The delicate mint works so perfectly in summer, and it’s the kind of colour that would look beautiful on every skin tone.
ESSIE NAIL LACQUER IN ‘FIJI’
‘Fiji’ is one of my favourite ever polishes, but I only really wear it in summer because it’s really difficult to pull off without a tan! It’s a super pale pink that looks insanely awesome on tanned and deep skin tones, and although this is quite sheer it can be built up to an opaque finish if you’d prefer.
SALLY HANSEN COMPLETE SALON MANICURE IN ‘TAHITIAN SUNSET’
Bright orange nails completely epitomise summer for me, and this is the absolute perfect shade. This is another polish that would look amazing on every skin tone, and it’s incredibly creamy so it’s easy to get an opaque finish.
RIMMEL LONDON SUPER GEL IN ‘DIVE RIGHT IN’
I love the Super Gel formula, and this is definitely one of my favourite shades. It’s such a bright blue that adds a gorgeous pop of colour to any look, and it has a super shiny finish that lasts for over a week!
RIMMEL LONDON 60 SECONDS SUPER SHINE IN ‘CARAMEL CUPCAKE’
Of course I had to stick a nude polish on this list, and this one is so perfect for summer. It’s more of a warm-toned nude so it really works well for the weather, and it’s amazingly long-lasting too.
So those were my favourite summer nail varnishes! I hope you enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments what your favourite polishes are for summer. See you next time,
