10 Best Summer Nail Polishes

Best 10 nail varnish colours for summer

It's just been pay day for me and, although I did write a pay day wishlist, I've spent an awful lot of time looking for more summer favourites. Earlier this week, I posted my top 10 denim shorts and today I've found 10 amazing nail varnishes for summer that I needed to share with you all!

Usually I'm a sucker for getting my nails done professionally, especially in the summer, but as I am saving for my upcoming wedding, I can't really justify the extra expense. What this does mean, is that I've allowed myself to invest a little bit more into my nail varnish collection so I can do them myself, so I'm not missing out on much.

After a good long while scouring the shops, I've picked my 10 favourite nail colours that I think will be perfect for summer!

1. Models Own Polish for Tans in Sun Hat - £5.00

Models Own have been little clever clogs' and designed a whole range of nail polishes that look great next to a tan! How could they not make my summer nail varnish list? Out of the whole range, Sun Hat is my favourite, but it was a pretty close call!

2. Ciate in Dolls Face - £11.95

Okay, maybe I mainly picked this because it's called Dolls Face, which is very nearly Dollface, which obviously is the name of my blog. It's a really cute porcelain colour and I think it would be lovely for a more subtle summer look!

3. Rimmel Sweetie Crush - £1.95 (reduced from £3.99)

Rimmel London Sweetie Crush Nail Varnish

These Sweetie Crush nail varnishes from Rimmel London as so cute. These colours and super sparkly glitter are so pretty, I literally couldn't choose one to put on the list so had to include them all! My current favourite is Fizzy Applelicious which is a gorgeous green PLUS it's currently on sale if you click the link!

4. Barry M Matte Nail Paint in Malibu - £4.00

I love the Barry M Matte nail colours, and this one is no exception. Malibu is a gorgeous sea blue colour. That, and the fact it is called Malibu definitely convinced me it should be on this list.

5. OPI in I Just Can't Cope-acabana - £2.67

OPI Nail Polish in I Just Can't Cope-acabana

OPI released a cute range of nail polishes with a Brazil theme all in time for the World Cup. They are super summery and really pretty. 'I just can't Cope-acabana' is my favourite. It's such a vibrant yellow that it would literally be summer at the end of our fingertips!

6. MAC Alluring Aquatic Nail Laquer in Submerged - £12

Isn't this MAC nail varnish pretty? It's all shimmery and holographic and it just looks like the sea! Beautiful!

7. Essie in Braziliant Coral - £7.99

Essie Nail Varnish in Braziliant Coral

In the bottle, this looks like quite a bright orange which is initially what drew me towards it, but actually it's definitely more of a coral when painted on the nails. Still super cute for summer though!

8. Nicole by OPI in Alex by the Books - £7.99

Nicole By OPI Nail Varnish in Alex by the Books

If you read my top 10 denim shorts post, you will have already heard about my love for mint green, and this nail varnish from Nicole by OPI is no exception. It's part of the modern family range and I am so excited to try it!

9. Rimmel London Space Dust in Shooting Star - £2.79 (reduced from 3.99)

More glitter and gorgeousness from Rimmel in the form of their Space Dust nail varnish range. This Shooting Star silver colour would be perfect for summer evenings and parties! And it's currently on sale so quiiiiicccccckkkk! Click the link!

10. Ciate in Poppet - £9.00

Pastel colours are always a winner for summer and this lilac shade from Ciate is no different. It's girly, summery and I'm sure will look fabulous next to our gorgeous tans!

Ooh I'm still in awe of all the pretty colours and dreaming up pretty nail art patterns in my head! While I'm doing that, why don't you tell me which of these is your favourite, or perhaps you can tell me about some other nail varnishes that will be amazing for summer?
