Call me a typical girly girl, but I just love when my nails and lipstick match. I don't know why but it satisfies me immensely and I just love the way the colours pair off beautifully. As summer is the season where I tend to wear non stop pink on my lips I thought today I would put together a few of my favourite pink nail polishes that are sure to match any pink lipstick in your collection.
MUA Lush Lilac
Starting with the lightest shade, this pastel nail polish from MUA is actually not a pink but a very muted lilac. I just love these kind of polishes that have a slight hint of colour but lean more towards a white shade. I think for summer anything that sort of resembles a white nail polish really enhances a tan and gives any manicure a really clean and polished look. I love wearing pink tinted lip glosses in the summer, so this polish pairs with them beautifully.
Nail Girls Colour
It really bugs me when a nail polish doesn't have a name and this one from Nail Girls is one of them, but the actual colour is gorgeous and its one my favourite type of pinks to wear. I would describe this colour as a bubblegum pink; It's soft, understated but girly at the same time. I wear a lot of lipsticks in this kind of colour, especially Mac's Chatterbox and Lovelorn and this shade compliments them both beautifully.
Nails Inc Gel Effect Polish - Covent Garden Place
When it comes to high shine nail polishes, the ones that create that gel effect are great. I'm a big fan of the Nails Inc Gel polishes as they are super shiny and give my nails that really polished professional manicure look. I think this shade is such a beautiful bright bold pink that is really fun to wear in the summer and its one of those pinks that looks killer with a tan. I wore this a lot when I was on holiday in Turkey and it just made me feel really sun kissed. I love matching this shade to Mac's Impassioned as it's a match made in heaven.
Barry M - Fuchsia
Everyone needs a really good fuchsia pink in their nail collection and one of my favourites has to be this one from Barry M. When it comes to nail polish Barry M are without a doubt my favourite brand. I love wearing a deep fuchsia pink lipstick on a summers evening out so I often reach for this nail polish to complete my look.
Now before your wonder and your mind gets carried away, I would just like to point out now that I do not own or wear any lipstick in this bright bold highlighter pink shade! However I adore this nail polish so much that I couldn't leave it out of this post. This crazily pink nail polish is one I've had in my collection for sometime and it only makes an appearance during the summer months. I love this polish when I'm looking to be a little bit more fun with my nail colour, although for me it's a little too daring for everyday especially with work. However I do love to rock this colour on my toe nails. I find you can be a little more adventurous when it comes to choosing your toe nail colour! Again this colour looks great if I have a tan, for some reason it doesn't work for me when I'm feeling a little pale - But overall I love it.
I feel like everyone has a preference in nail colour choices in the summer and as you can see my go to shades are pinks with a mix of bolds and pastels. I would love to know what your summer nail choices are and what your favourite nail polish is right now? Let me know in the comments.
Lots of Love
