Nails: Top 5 Summer Polishes 2017

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 // A England - Whispering Waves // Barry M - Papaya // Cupcake Polish - Berry Good Looking // Nails Inc - St John's Way

Claire's - Dizzy // A England - Whispering Waves // Barry M - Papaya // Cupcake Polish - Berry Good Looking // Nails Inc - St John's Way

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.
