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.

Nail Polish Battle 2014: Glitters!

This is the final battle, before moving on to my top three. I seem to have acquired a fair few glitters this past year.

Angelica - Bobby Dazzler // OPI - // Claire's - Dizzy // Jacava - Oxford Street // Leighton Denny - Be Unique // Leighton Denny - Be Individual // Avon - Opal // Barry M - Crystal Glaze

First I whittled these down to three, I like the purple tones to and the Avon polish is quite unique. It isn't quite a flakie polish but it is along those lines.

The winner of the three is Claire's Dizzy, because this is quite a unique polish. Multi neon glitters are quite common in the land of indie polish but this is a main stream polish at a bargain price. This is very summer appropriate over white but I think it would work really well over black as well.

Swatch: Claire's - Leather Look Black


Colour: Black
Finish: Leather Look
Opacity: Two Coats
Brush Type: Standard
How Much? 9ml

I have one other black textured polish, seventeen's rock hard nail effects. They look relatively similar but they feel different, Claire's is smoother and won't click tights where as the Seventeen one has a rougher texture.
