Let us introduce you to some fantastic nail lacquers in ‘poptastic’, summer-inspired shades.
If you’re holidaying this summer or autumn, you’ll want to use a nail polish that lasts the whole time you’re away, with minimal touch ups. Therefore, we have recommended some of our favourite brands that offer nail polishes that are durable, long lasting and have a range of fabulous shades.
Some of our regularly used brands are Illamasqua, Essie, Chanel, Barry M, MAC, Butter, and O.P.I. We’ve found that their nail colours have always been beautiful, long-lasting and sometimes only require one coat.
Let’s paint those nails bright!
Here are a range of summer-inspired nail colour shades we have rounded up – choose a shade for your beauty salon Mani Pedi or your DIY one.
On the coral
Explore the lovely pinks, reds and corals range. Corals are always a holiday favourite! Our recommendation is Lament by Illamasqua. It is a unique coral shade that you will forever cherish.
Purchase at Illamasqua.com £14.50
Calm or loud & electric?
You can always go a little daring with electric blues, calming cobalts and envious greens. Our recommendation is Guava by Barry M in the Gelly High Shine Nail Paint range.
Purchase at asos.com £3.99
Sweet as a Popsicle
Candy, sweets and pop colours are tasteful, fun and fail-safe too. Our recommendation is Girl About Town by M.A.C Studio Nail.
Purchase at maccosmetics.co.uk £10.00
Beiges, pinks or whites in super-chic and stylish shades are a go-to when you want to keep it neutral or classic. They will always conquer. Our recommendation is Chanel Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour in Particulière. Le classic!
Purchase at debenhams.com £18.00
Creamy & Dreamy
Get all whimsical, dreamy and caught up in the pretty creams and pastels. Our recommendation is Bikini So Teeny by Essie.
Purchase at selfridges.com £10.95
Nail polish is an important fashion accessory too; it can help express your style and mood! And with these shades it is all about the holiday vibes.
Why not finish your nails off with a subtle design on the index or ring fingernail or if you would prefer something a little different but noticeable – opt for a pretty crystal or two?
Tip: Be different and apply nail art to only your thumbnails!
Holiday inspired Nail Art can be fun and add to the excitement of getting away. Some of us still prefer the classic look that is always a fail-safe.
Don’t forget to apply a base coat and top coat – they make a noticeable difference. Save staining the nail by applying a base coat and top coat by locking that colour on and adding that glossy look, yet both strengthen the nail.
We recommend Rimmel London’s Nail Nurse Rescue Base Coat at £4.49 available at Boots and Revlon’s Quick Dry Top Coat Clear 960 at £6.49 available at Superdrug.
Whether you’re going on holiday or not – stay colourful and stylish this summer season!
