my favourite summer polishes

i know the whole idea of this sort of post is that i'm meant to give a few of my favourite polishes of the season but i just couldn't pick! with that in mind here is my selection of summer polishes for anyone looking to add a few shades to their collection.

| (l-r) models own indian ocean & hedonist, barry m mint green, lemon ice cream & peach melba, headline colours catwalk* |
indian ocean is unlike any other polish i own. the effect it gives on your nails is like a beautiful beach from a postcard, shimmering as you move your hand. the pastel polishes are my perfect spring to summer polish. they look so fresh and i like to wear them with a different colour on each finger when i'm feeling a bit more adventurous!

as for hedonist and catwalk they are both variations on the same shade. for me catwalk is a more everyday colour as it it slightly more muted, whilst hedonist is perfect for those big nights out. it glows under the club lights and looks amazing! i've never had so many people compliment me on my nails!

| (l-r) primark neons set,  orly rock on red*, mua shade 9, nails inc with instyle bluebell, ciate mistress* |
these polishes from primark were an utter bargain! they actually come as a set of four but i'm not a fan of the green shade. they need a few coats but give a gorgeous neon colour! not bad for 50p each. the orly shade is a gorgeous bright pink, which although similar to a few other shades i own is the one i always reach for.

the mua blue is slightly muted which i love. although not the greatest formula ever i like this for one day wear. its especially with a matte top coat. the shade from nails inc is so unique. i've never seen a shade like it and it is a staple for me in the spring to summer transition, one that i am always excited to rediscover. i love the bottles from ciate!this shade, mistress, is the perfect orange toned red. i love to pair it with a black outfit. it really stands out and makes a statement with your nails.

so it would seem i have a bit of a thing for neons and pastels... although i tend to wear a lot of these more in the summer i do think they are shades perfect for all year round, i just have to choose the appropriate moment!

what are your favourite polishes at the moment?
