The Perfect Summer Nails! |

Today's blog post is in collaboration with At Destination 2 you can find luxury destinations at some of the best prices in the market. With over 70 years of experience in the industry, they are passionate about sharing new and exciting destinations to visit at great prices. I had a little browse at some places where I'm planning on travelling to hopefully within the next year or so and the prices which came back were a lot cheaper than I had expected and have seen on other competitors websites. If you're planning a trip away in the very near future then you can browse luxury destinations here.

Because I'm not overly keen on any type of false nails just because I find them quite annoying and hard to do daily tasks without them getting in the way, I tend to just shape and paint my own nails. I like to have more of a kind of Squoval shape. On the rare occasion I do wear false nails then I really like the KISS imPRESS gel nails because they are so easy to apply and they suit my natural nails well, so I rarely have to file the nails down.

But my usual go-to for my nails is just shaping and painting my own nails. For Summer I tend to go for my pastel colours usually just because if I chip them, then it won't annoy me all day looking at the chipped nails (yes I'm one of those people, it really annoys me looking at chipped nails).

I don't really have one nail polish which has been my favourite because I have been wearing a lot of nail polishes in similar shades. So I've narrowed it down to just four. My favourite polishes I've been reaching for the most during Summer have been -

Essence The Gel Nail Polish - Perfect Match*
This is such a pretty kind of pink - it's not too bold but not too washed out. I can definitely get about 5-7 days out of this polish without having to repaint which is fab considering it only costs £1.60 and would be a great polish to wear on holiday.

Rimmel 60 Seconds Nail Polish - Rain Rain Go Away 
I have so many of these 60 Seconds nail polishes from Rimmel. This one is probably the latest one I've added to my collection and it's a pretty pastel purple-grey colour. It's a great everyday kind of shade and just goes with so many outfits and other colours.

Essence Colour Boost - Instant Happiness
I've been wearing this A LOT, it's a gorgeous kind of a bright mint green shade and it's a great nail polish to pop on if you're in a hurry because you literally only need one coat and you're done. 

Rimmel 60 Seconds Nail Polish - Bestival Blue 
Another one from Rimmel I love is Bestival Blue, I literally have people asking me what I'm wearing when I have this on my nails. I remember at my old job I stopped wearing it because I was sick of telling people what nail polish it was lol. 

So there are some of my favourite nail polishes I've been wearing this Summer, what have been your go-to shades?

  1. Because my summer job is in a bakery I can't ever have my nails done which is so annoying! I'm counting down the days until my hols to get some fancy ones done. I love wearing brighter colours, especially corals in the summer!xx
