When it comes to nail vanish, I rarely use anything that isn't Model's Own, Topshop, Essie or Barry M. Their shades, formulas and ease of application never fail to impress me, so it's needless to say that during the Summer months I always head straight to them to brighten up my mani. Although I always reach for pastel shades for everyday, easy wear, on days when I want to enhance my tan and add a pop of colour, I head for the brighter shades. Today, I thought I would give you the run down of my go-to colours this Summer. 

The Pastels
Pastels will always be my forte and over the years, I have collected an array of baby blues, pinks and purples to compliment and colour my Summer nails. During the Summer, I am always after a shade that I can pop on and be out the door in 2 minutes - Cue the Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paint - Eat My Dust, a pale blue shade that applies evenly and dries instantly. If pastel purple is your type of shade, then Topshop - Parma Violet has you covered. The long lasting, even coverage formula applies evenly with 2 coats and the limited edition rose gold packaging has a massive thumbs up from me. If you're a regular reader of my blog then you'll already know that my evergrowing Essie collection is showing no signs of slowing down and the three shades that have regularly been featured on social media are three that I believe everyone should own. Fiji, Salt Water Happy and Mint Candy Apple are three pastel shades that are easy to wear and apply. 

The Brights
If there's one collection you need to get your hands on this Summer it's the Model's Own Polish For Tans*. From corals to neons, the whole collection will help to enhance and compliment your natural tan. Although I reach for pastel shades for day to day wear, it's the brights that I love for when I am sporting a tan. If you're looking for a new holiday nail vanish shade then the two tones that I can't get enough of are Turquoise Sea, a neon blue and Cocktail Hour, an orange/pink hybrid. Both shades apply evenly, dry quickly and long last on the nails meaning that you won't have to reapply too often. More time in the sun, how could we complain? If you're after a bright nail vanish shade that isn't too OTT, but still has the wow factor then I would thoroughly recommend Malibu Pink, a neon barbie pink shade that instantly highlights a tan.

What shades have you got on your nails this Summer?
