Top 5 | Nail Varnishes For Summer!

Hello Lovelies. Welcome back to Beautiful You!

I have been loving how long my nails have been recently and I thought that I would share with you some of the nail varnishes that I have been loving throughout summer! I have particularly been loving pastels, they bring out your tan more and they are just the nicest colours ever!

1. Models Own Hyper Gel (Lilac Sheen) - I love the colour of this nail varnish but however I don't love the formula as much. I find that it goes quite bubbly unless you get the coats as thin as possible but when it get it right it really does look lovely. I'm not normally a fan of purple because it normally makes me look really pale but this colour doesn't at all which is perfect!

2. BarryM Gelly Hi-Shine (Rose Hip) - I think I mentioned this in one of my recent videos because I loved it so much but this colour has been on my toes for the entire summer. It is so simple but looks really nice on your hands and feet especially when you have a tan because they really compliments each other. The formula of this varnish is brilliant to and really does last a long time! 

3. BarryM Nail Paint (Ridley Road) - I chose this varnish because of the colour, it is so summery and is perfect for finger nails. However, I'm not a massive fan of the finish, it is one of those ones that is textured and I don't like it when my nails don't feel flat it just doesn't sit right with me! Apart from that the varnish is really long lasting and the colour pay off is great too! 

4. BarryM Gelly Hi-Shine (Papaya) - As you all know I am a massive fan of orange and this muted orange is perfect as it isn't too out there, you can apply this to include orange into your outfit is a subtle way. Again the formula is brilliant and the application is really easy, I definitely am a lover of the BarryM Gelly varnishes!

5. Models Own Hedkandi (Hedonist) - Lastly is this bright orange varnish and I cannot explain to you how much I love this colour. In the picture it doesn't look too bright but when applied it is the brightest colour ever and I love it. The only downside is that it does chip quite easily but if you are like me then I can't have one colour on my nails for too long and I like to switch it up so that's fine!

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the nail varnishes that I have been loving over summer, let me know if there are any in particular that you have been loving in the comments! I hope you have enjoyed me blogging everyday this week and I will see you again tomorrow!

  2. I love the colour of the Models Own nail polish. I have wanted to try the Hyper Gel ones for ages but now not so much. It is a shame the formula isn't great! x
