Nails: Spring & Summer

Nails are probably my favourite part of make-up - as much as I love foundation, eyeliner and all that, I just love painting my nails. Because of this, nail polishes often make appearances on my blog - and today I thought I'd share with you my picks for spring and summer - the polishes that I would choose for this time of year.

Barry M Speedy Quick Dry in Pit Stop and Lap of Honour - I talked about these in a recent post so I won't ramble on too much but these are my new favourite nail polishes! Not only do I love the colours, but the formula is amazing and very quick drying - plus it comes with a really wide brush.

Max Factor Gel Shine Lacquer in Glazed Cobalt - Until recently, I hadn't tried that many Max Factor polishes but I'm actually really impressed with this range due to the shiny, gel-like finish. For the warmer months, I often wear bright blues - and I think this would be a nice evening shade.

Rimmel 60 Seconds in District-ly Come Dancing - I talk about Rimmel quite a lot on here as I love their products, and their nail polishes are no exception. Their 60 Seconds polishes are some of my favourites, and this bright green/blue is a great colour for spring/summer! 

Essie in Splash of Grenadine - It's not summer without this classic Essie shade! I'm not usually one for warmer colours, but this purple is so pretty and it looks great with a tan. Also, Essie formulas are great and their brushes are wide too which makes for easy application. 

Bourjois in Lavande Esquisse and Ciel Mon Vernis - I mentioned in another post how much I like Bourjois' face and lip products, but they also have some great nail offerings! I picked a couple of shades from them - a true purple and also a really pretty pale blue. I would definitely recommend trying out some of Bourjois' nail polishes as they seem quite underrated but they're amazing!

What are your favourite nail polishes for this time of year?


  1. I've been loving the Barry M Speed Dry range too! Especially the colour Eat My Dust :)

    1. Ooh I haven't tried many of their products! x

  7. I have a job where I can't have nails painted unfortunately. But when I've got a few days in a row off (and for my toes) I love to use Essie! Right now I've got Nice is Nice on my toes and it's just the perfect pale purple for spring.
