Nails: Top 5 Summer Polishes

Seeing as this past week it was the Summer Solstice I thought I should share my top summer polishes for 2017. If you are interested you can see my summer picks for 2015 here and 2014 here.

Claire's - Dizzy
Summer calls for neons and glitter, this polish ticks all the boxes.

A England - Whispering Waves
Holographic polishes are stunning year round, however in direct sunlight they really come in to their own. This is a beautiful turquoise.

Barry M - Papaya
Orange is a typical summer choice, this is less in your face than a neon but still summer appropriate.

Cupcake Polish - Berry Good Looking
As I said with the A England, holographic polishes look great in sunlight. This is a stunning purple packed with holographic particles.

Nails Inc - St John's Way
This glitter is pastel so much less in your face than the one from Claire's. It has small white hexes, shards, and string glitter as well as very fine peach glitter in a clear base.

Review: DUX Lingerie - Shade 12 Pale

This liquid lipstick is a mid brown shade which is matte in finish. I found this swatched on my hand the same colour as it ended up on my lips, however this was quite a lot darker than it looks in the tube. This only needed one coat to achieve full opacity. It didn't need setting and once dried it didn't stick to itself or anything once dried. It is kiss proof and lasts for hours, eventually it does begin to crumble from the inside out. It has a mild scent in the tube of sweet, vanilla but on the lips the scent disappears.

Hand Swatch:

The applicator is a flattened type one:

I really like the formula as it is not sticky at all.

Swatched on my lips:
