My top 10 nail polishes for the summer

I love changing the color of my nails as often as I find the time (which is not that often now with the baby M around, but still often enough). Going through my collection packing up for vacation, I found myself searching for very specific polishes and instantly decided to share my pick with you. 

Starting off with the lightest shades, we’ve got Ciate Snow Virgin, Delia Coral (n. 159) and Essie Sittin’ Pretty. I would say that Ciate and Delia work well with two coats, but I’m not a big fan of the Essie formula in this particular shade. Still, it’s a lovely violet color and I am willing to make an effort.

Next are the pinks and the orange shades – Avon Sheer Citrus, L’Oreal Nymphea, L’Oreal Cherie Macaron and Avon Flaming Orange. The L’Oreal polishes are spectacular – two coats do the job easily and the colors are so rich and vibrant! I didn’t think I’ll like the Avon Sheer Citrus very much but in fact it’s not as sheer as it appears in the bottle. I am hard pressed to find such neutral shades to fit my skin tone so I am a big fan of this particular polish. Avon Flaming Orange is from last year’s collection of Avon Glow, which has a ton of new releases this year.

Last but not least there are the cooler shades – Ciate Apples and Custard, Zoya Lilian and a new edition to my nail polish family, a polish from Bell Hypoalergenic (n. 45). The latter reminds me of my favorite Youtuber so I just had to pick it up, Ciate is perfect for a wash of color and Lilian is a staple on days when I can’t be bothered too much since one coat usually does the job.
