More summer favourites! This time I am listing my favourite bright summer colours! The really bright and intense shades that look amazing in the sunlight. I often have trouble deciding which colour I want to use because I want to wear all of them at once! If you have not checkout out my other post on my favourite summer pastels, check that out here. Again there is one colour that actually has the teeny, tiniest hit of pearlescence, but it can’t be seen on the nails. So without further ado, there are the shades that made the cut for my summer bright nail polish.
It’s finally summer! And the weather here has been really A+! I already have a number of events lined up. For the next 3 months, my weekends are going to be pretty full. So of course, I am living in open-toed shoes, I am taking full advantage of the warmth. Hence, I have to make sure that my nails are always polished, both hands and feet. I own a lot of nail polish…like a lot. So I give myself manis and pedis once a week, and I never wear the same colour on my fingers and toes. I love all textures of polish, but there is something about crème nail polishes, especially on dark skin that I love. I think that there is no distraction from shimmers and glitters, so that it is all about the colour. So I am drawn to really bold brights, or intense light colours. It’s all about the contrast with the skin colour. Here are the four best summer nail polishes, in pastel cremes, that will pop on women of colour. And better yet, these are all vegan friendly! These are must-have.
Side note: Yes there are a lot of Mischo Beauty polishes here. These were all bought by me, and this post is not sponsored. I just love the brand.
