Summer Bright Nail Polish Shades

It's England, it's not sunny, why am I not surprised? With the rain all over, I thought a bright and sunny post would help to put us all into that bit of a better mood and cheer us all up! Of course, what's better than nail polish and swatches? Every girl loves nail polish, right? It's definitely not just me, I swear... 

I 'shopped my stash' and came up with the brightest and bestest of my entire collection... 

This post's neon yellow comes from Urban Outfitters and is their shade 'Miami'. I'm not talking any old neon here, this is the brightest I've ever come across. It's not fantastic on it's own but layer this baby over a white base and you're looking at the brightest nails you ever did see. I'm talking highlighter and tipex yellow, did anyone else do that... No?  Just me then. Uh oh. 

A firm favourite in my collection and one I've kept firmly in my collection since the sunny days last year.  Model's Own Head Kandi Collection holds a few summer nail polish favourites for most but my pick is 'Beach Party' a super bright orange that looks gorgeous with or without a tan. What's not to love? 

A newer polish in my collection and Nails Inc 'Queen Victoria Street'*, I'm looking at you. I love a good turquoise, and this one is a really nice one. Not only fantastic in the summer, but I'd work this all year round. If you're on more of a budget though, head to the Barry M Gelly stand, you won't regret it. 

Speaking of the devil, the next polish comes from Barry M's infamous Gelly range and it's 'Blue Grape' an uber bright cobalt blue. A slightly darker shade next to all of the brights, but if you're not feeling as adventurous, then this'll be your go-to shade. 

Last but not least is a mini from W7 from the Dot-to-Dot Pink Set* - a super affordable not only to get some more polishes into your collection but also to give you a go at nail art! 

Go on, tell me your favourite summer shades, I need some more polishes to add to my overflowing collection, right?
