Over the past month I was slowly picking my favourite and most loved nail polishes this summer. I was aiming for top 5 polishes, but in the end I made top 6 list. :D
At first I wanted to include Alessandro Love Secret into my favourite summer nail polishes, but then I received Alessandro Fantasy Island from Tropical Jungle LE and I changed my mind. Fantasy Island won with its lighter and more warm toned shade. Now in fall favourites … This nail polish is not full coverage in 2 coats which for some reason makes pink more wearable in my eyes. No idea why, but I’m noticing that goes for majority of pink shades I loved lately.
Avon Flaming Orange was love at first sight. I opened Avon package and thought that this is it – perfect orange for summer. I don’t like too light orange nail polishes and lovely fine glitter just puts icing on the cake (wait, I hate icing so scratch that – cherry on the top?). Formula looks at first that it will be quite sheer, but 2 coats are full coverage so …
Pale yellow rocked this season with all the black and white trend going on in fashion. But then again, I think yellow is such a lovely and bright colour it simply screams SUMMER. Enter Essence Love is in the air (it gets bonus points for music from dance movie ) with great formula, perfect shade and very reasonable price = you have a winner.
Green and blue are my weakness all year long. I just can’t live without those two shades and turquoise is even more desirable in my eyes. Those 3 look so fun and playful on my nails but work as classy manicure too.
Catrice (S)wimbledon is between blue and green but more to the green side. I have very short description for you – drop dead gorgeous + no issues with formula/application.
Now Essie Garden Variety goes into deeper and more blue hues. Long staying power, deep colour and I’m hooked. Probably one on my top Essie nail polishes this year.
I just wrote about Revlon Gel Envy line but I simply have to include Revlon Wild Card into summer favourites too as I adore this shade and could wear it all the time.
If you had to pick only ONE nail polish – which would be your summer favourite?
