Nails Nails Nails – My Summer Nail Polishes

Nails Nails Nails - My Summer Nail Polishes

Aloha my lovely friends,

You can read it from the title. Todays focus will be on nails. To be more precise: nail polishes. I love wearing nail polish during the whole year. Red, nude, neon or glitter polish – the right nail polish is a must for every perfect style. It makes you look so chic & elegant or edgy & fancy. But one thing is certain for fashionistas: the best outfit is no good if the nail polish does not match the outfit or the lipstick – nail polish is one of the key accessories of an outfit. This is why I take a lot of care of my nails. I try to do a manicure every week. And once a month I treat myself to a professional manicure 🙂 I love it, it doesn’t cost you much, and yet it feels luxurious. You should try it. I promise you, you will LOVE it. At a manicure salon you are also able to try new colours, which you do not have in your collection. I like to try those crazy colours such as yellow, blue or green. Because nail trends change just as quickly as fashion trends. So I like to try them out first, to see if the colour suits me and if it is worth buying. What always works for me: nude and red nail polish, it gives me a well-groomed look. During summertime, however, I love it more colourful.

ESSIE “fiji”

This colour is probably one of Essie’s most hyped nail polishes. This soft pink shade comes along so girlishly, and elegant. The nail polish has something special. It does not look as hard as white, yet it is quite striking and anything but a discreet nude. Although it  fits both in the winter time (with a glitter top coats), as well as solo with your tanned skin (I still have to wait for some tanned skin 🙁 ) during summertime. I can understand that this nail polish is so popular. I also like the colour very much ♡

ESSIE “watermelon”

I would describe the colour “watermelon” as a reddish pink. It is just perfect for summer. This nail polish really attracts attention, without looking terrible. The tone is rather playful and very girlish than “fiji”. During summer, you can see the colour on my fingernails quite often. However, it is by far my most favourite colour on my toes. I love it, when I look down on my feet and it looks like summer although it is winter. It just makes me happy 🙂

ESSIE “saltwater happy”

I tried “saltwater happy” last summer in the nail studio, and I fell immediately in LOVE with the colour. It is a baby blue cream nail polish, free of any shimmer or glitter. However, I have to say, that this blueish colour does not suit everyone. Try it out in a nail studio, or get a low-priced nail polish first. If it suits you, spend the money on this one. The quality is so much better than any other. You will notice that I am in love with “saltwater happy”. The colour is not only characterised by its beautiful colour (which I’ve been asked about several times), but is just like it was made for the summer.

Enjoy your summer nails!
