The best of Summer Nails


Summer nails mean two things to me - pastel or bright. Metallic, glitter, blacks and reds... there's no room for you here, you'll be back once the nights start drawing in and the boots come back out. But as long as the sun's a shining, I'll be clinging on to these top picks....

SensatioNail Guilty Pleasure - there's nothing "guilty" about this one. It's a bright orange/pink-fluro, in-yer-face and it knows it. Review here.

Revlon Strawberry Cream - a bright, milky pink that's a real tan enhancer. The perfect summer shade and it's scented!  Review here.

Sephora by OPI Havana Dreams - a true baby blue with a gorgeous creme finish.

Nails Inc You're a Peach - a peach indeed. This one's the perfect milky pastel peach.

Essie Cute as a Button - a beautiful bright coral with a glossy finish. I always take this on holiday, goes well with a tan and makes me feel very tropical. Review here.

Essie Bikini So Teeny - needing no introduction. A pale baby blue with a hint of lavender and a gorgeous subtle shimmer. Review here.

Sinful Colors Coral Reef - clearly I have a thing for corals. This one's a true coral. Not as bright and Cute as a button and not as milky as Strawberry Cream.... just sitting nicely in the middle. Did I mention it's just £1.99!

Essie Mint Candy Apple - I'm going to say it... this is my favourite ever shade. Mint green pastel perfect. It never fails to impress. I'll wear it all year round but it's definitely a summer hit. Review here.

Revlon Buttercup - this one screams summer. I mean when else could you rock a yellow nail? A creamy pale yellow with a cream finish. They'd look a bit sickly next to my pasty winter hands, but in the summer they make that tan pop! Review here.

Essie Avenue Maintain. Another Essie and another blue. Described as a Parisian Light Blue with a crème finish... how could I resist! I got this one from Fragrance Direct for £1.99 here.

Excuse the photo bomber!

Which is your favourite? 


  1. Essie Cute as a button and mint candy apple are my top Essie favourites. I also really love Sephora By OPI Havana Dreams, I actually haven't worn it for ages, that must be rectified :)

    1. I did that with Cute as a button, hadn't worn it for ages then remembered how gorgeous it was. Can't go wrong with Mint candy apple :) x


Thank you for your comment, I really appreciate it. I read all of them and reply to any questions x
