My Top 5 - Summer Nail Polishes.

Oh nail polish. I cannot get enough of it. Really I should have named the blog 'LashingsofNailPolish' rather than 'LashingsofMascara' as mascara posts are seriously lacking on here. But that's for another day. The above nail polishes are my favorite nail polishes to wear throughout summer. It was hard to limit this to five but if I hadn't I probably would have showcased my whole 'Summer' collection and we don't need to see that as really they're all variations of the one shade.

Bikini So Teeny : I've previously posted about 'Bikini So Teeny' here. Everyone has this shade. It's incredibly popular on the blogs right now and I'm guilty of succumbing to the hype. In the sun it's like little glitter bombs on your fingers. The shimmer just pops. The magpie within me just loves this.

Banana Split : The 'Models Own Scented' nails polishes are my first 'Models Own' purchases. I didn't know what to expect. The idea of it being scented like a banana had me won over instantly. I'm a child really. I wasn't too concerned about how good it would be till I was out of boots after I had bought three of them and my friend was all 'but what if they turn out to be rubbish'. Thankfully they're and I'm obsessed with the pastel yellow. It's so cute and screams summer. It's like little banana scented rays of sunshine on your finger nails.

Berry Ice Cream : 'Barry M' nail polishes are so fab. They have such a wide range of shades and i could never pick one. But 'Berry Ice Cream' caught my eye one day and it's the perfect lilac shade. I find 'Barry M' nail polishes are quite resistant to chipping. I get a good 4/5 days out of this. Which is really what you want from a nail polish during the summer. Who has the time to be sat inside on a sunny day reapplying chipped nail polish when it could rain any second. You know what  I mean?

Apple Pie :  I'm guilty of having my fair share of mint pastels. I blame Alexa Chung for sparking this obsession way back in the day. But considering this one smelt like apple pie..... I'm such an impulse buyer when it comes to gimmicky products like this. I love that you can still get the scent ever so slightly on your nails when they've dried. It sets it apart from all the other mint shades I have and its just that little bit lighter than them too. So essentially, its a whole other shade... Everyone needs a good mint nail polish in their collection. It's perfect for summer and winter.

Cute as a Button : This is probably my most worn nail polish. I've previously posted about it here. Compared to the other shades it's a lot more vibrant. It's not swaying to the pastel side of things which is perfect for those of you who don't dig the pastel nail. If you don't dig the pastel nail, you lead a sad life my friend. But this is cute, girly and needs to be worn with multiple summer dresses because that's just how I see it in my mind.

So there you have it 'My Top 5 Summer Nail Polishes'. I do reach for other shades but these are the ones I'm wearing the most and just can't get enough of. I'm thinking of turning this into a series. I might share my top 5 blushes and lipsticks etc. We'll see how it goes lighting wise. It's ridiculously hot and humid out yet no sun. The worst kind of weather.
