With many people off on their holidays, we have selected our pick of the best nail polishes and enhancements for the summer!
First of all Ted’s Nail Wraps range from Boots. These wraps are perfect for instantly updating your nails with a blast of colour or pattern. They also come in four different designs; Treasured Orchid, Bejewelled, Purple Haze and Gold Bird. They are great for popping into your hand luggage and bypassing those liquid restrictions at the airport!
For another way to instantly vamp up your nails, visit nailedituk.bigcartel.com. Their range of on-trend stick on nails are the easy alternative to salon acrylics. We love these 3 styles; Pineapple Party, Island Sunset and Sequin Sparkle. If these aren’t what you are looking for, they also offer a bespoke design service meaning you can create your own original set of nails!
Pineapple Party £14.99
Island Sunset £14.99
Sequin Sparkle £12.99

If you want to paint your own nails, we highly recommend NARS Iconic Colour Nails Polish in Hunger. This coral shade is bang on trend for summer and it will also carry up through to autumn, which is full of burnt oranges and brown tones. And if you’re like me and like to match your nails and lips, we love this Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick in Excentrique, a fabulous orange that will complement your nails and help to boost your tan too!
