The Summer Nail Edit

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Well guys, it’s my final ‘nail edit’ of the year, and I have to say, for an ex-makeup hoarder I’m pretty proud of myself for sticking to the ‘3 new shades per season‘ rule. I’ve bought 12 new shades in the past 12 months, which means I’ve really made the most of each one and none have been left to lie unloved in the back of a drawer! You can check out my Autumn, Winter and Spring Edits if you want to see my previous picks…

For Summer, I’m all about bright vibrant nails to match my mood. I especially love a bright red or purple peeking out from an open-toe sandal. These gorgeous shades have been perfect for bright sunny days!

NYX Paradise Martini: I’m not usually a massive pink fan, but when I spotted this gorgeous fuchsia in the Barcelona NYX store, I knew I had to have it. I especially love this on my toes, and the formula lasts really well!

Essie Flowerista: You guys know I’m a big Essie fan so this shouldn’t come as a surprise. The formulas never let me down and the colour range just can’t be beat! I’ve always lusted after the Dior Vernis in Mirage but £18 is just a little too steep for a nail polish in my books. This looked like a very similar colour though, if a little more plummy coloured. Purple is one of my favourite colours and I love wearing this matched with my favourite MAC Heroine Lip Pencil.

Topshop Awol: Of course there had to be a blue in there somewhere… I think blue has to be my favourite nail polish shade along with a classic red or nude. I just love the pop of colour against a plain white t-shirt. I’ve actually had this shade for a while, and I always bring it out in the summer months. It’s like my favourite Topshop Blue Rinse‘s slightly more fun cousin!

I hope you guys have enjoyed my little nail edits! Let me know if you would think about trying the ‘3 shades per season’ rule. And tell me in the comments if you’ve tried any of these shades!

  1. I love the 3 shades per season rule! I really should adopt it…I got hooked on the Essie Gel Couture line this month because it is the only thing that seems to last more than a day or two without chipping on me. Maybe next season I’ll be better 😔
