Nails: Top 5 Summer Polishes 2020

Summer Solstice was on Saturday and so I thought I should get around to sharing my top summer polishes for 2020. These are the polishes from my collection I will be reaching for, if you don't have these exact ones then something similar would do.

If you are interested you can see my summer picks for 2019 here2018 here2017 here2015 here and 2014 here.

Lemon Sorbet is from this spring's Rainbow Reload collection, it is a more pastel yellow so a bit easier to wear than a brighter yellow such as Barry M Banana Split.

Miss Sporty Orange Crush, I don't know if Miss Sporty still exist as a brand but a coral polish is always good for summer. This one is somewhere between a pastel and a bright.

Orly Glowstick is a very new polish to my collection. While this is a yellow it is a straight up highlighter neon polish, unlike Lemon Sorbet. Neon's again are something which I am more likely to wear in summer than winter.

Danglefoot Bones, is another new polish to me. It is a very bright 'burple' colour with a fuchsia shimmer running throughout it. While this is great for summer I also think it would work in winter.

Kiko Cerulean Blue 295, isn't one I have worn in a long time which is a shame because it is nice. Cerulean Blue is a very bright, sky blue polish.
