I love this time of year. I also love the Summer even more though especially festival season. I always try to go to as many as i can a year and normally it's around this time that the 'season' starts. I'm going to a couple this year and thought I'd do a little series all about festivals. This is the first instalment in this series, so i hope you enjoy!
|L to R: Essie 'Sunday Funday', Rimmel 'Tangerine Tent', Rimmel 'Bestival Blue', Maybelline 'Electric Yellow' and Barry M 'Mint Green'|
I like bright colours on my nails in Summer. Nothing brightens up an outfit than a bright, eye catching colour on your nails. Lots of brands seem to think the same way - as i found quite a lot of bright colours i loved.
For me, these are the 5 polishes that caught my eye and I'll most likely be using throughout the summer.
Essie 'Sunday Funday' is a lovely coral with some very fine glitter/shimmer in it. The formula is thick but easy to use. (£7.99 Boots)
Rimmel 'Tangerine Tent' is a bright orange. It's gorgeous and eye catching. Rimmel's formula is very thick and is opaque with even just one coat. Great value for money. (£2.99 Boots)
Rimmel 'Bestival Blue' probably my favourite out of the colours shown. Bright powder blue. Again, the formula is instantly opaque and the thick brush means it takes no time at all. (£2.99 Boots)
Maybelline 'Electric Yellow' my least favourite of the bunch. Yellow can be really hit and miss - this one looks slightly too dark on the nail. Formula is good though - not runny at all. (£2.99 Boots)
Barry M 'Mint Green' my other favourite colour. Gorgeous on the nails - slighter runnier formula than the other 4 but after a couple of coats it looks lovely on the nails. (£2.99 Boots)
They are all affordable with the Essie polish being the most expensive. In the picture above i have 2 coats on each nail. I always wear these with a base coat and top coat to improve the wear time and to keep chips at bay for longer.
