  1. Summer Orange

What better way to start your summer than to apply a coat of Rimmel London’s Salon Pro in the shade Summer Orange, 321. This shade is perfect for the summer time & is one of my personal favourites! It’s like bringing a fancy Cuban beach vacation into a bottle. Unfortunately Rimmel London have discounted this shade, however you can find this exact same shade by Maybelline at The shade is Orange Attack Nail Polish, 341. This retails at £3.99.

I am a huge fan of nude, but nude isn’t one shade for all of course. If you’re tan like me and need the perfect nude nail polish, look no further because I have found it! A few years back Rimmel London were stocking the shade Get A Nail Tan, however since then they have discontinued it. I was so sad because it was the only place stocking the perfect nude for brown/tan girls. But since then the shadeTea & Toast by Butter London has been released and is the exact same shade! This shade is perfect if you want a nude hue or if you’re on the beach and don’t want that sandy look. This retails at £6.95, now that I’ve found this shade I’m getting it in bulk before it goes out of stock !

Red is the perfect nail colour all year long, but this summer think of sticking to reds with orange bases, giving your nails a warmer tone.
