Favourite Nail Polish Shades Of The Spring/Summer

Essie - Orange It's Obvious & To Buy Or Not To Buy (lilac)
This is probably the most used nail colour in my collection, a sort of 'go-to' choice. It's perfect for both daytime and evening and especially appropriate for Summer. Essie's formula is one of the best I've tried and the cost per ml is pretty good too!
Barry M - Magenta Glitter & Aqua Glitter
I'm not the worlds biggest fan of Barry M (shock horror!), their regular formulas are very gloopy and spoil too quickly for my liking. However, I love their glitters! They're well 'packed' in comparison to other brands which means it doesn't take 10 years to dry. I tend to layer these two over similar shades first to reduce drying time further. They're a pretty, girly nail for those who are awful at nail art like me!
Max Factor - Diva Violet
Before Essie's Orange Its Obvious, this was my all time favourite nail polish. I love that its an unusual shade you cant find in other brands. The brushes on the Max Factor Mini's is really really good, a perfect size and density for good application. My only gripe is the availability of these and the cost per ml. Other than that, I'm obsessed!
Rimmel - Pear Drop
I'm not usually one for a 'shimmer' finish nail polish, however I loved this shade too much not to buy. It's a perfect alternative for those who feel like mint greens make their hands look ashy or yellow (me me meeee!) The price is one of the most cost effective of the bunch and they're readily available everywhere!
Misc - Neon Yellow
Back in Jan/Feb as the neon trend started to creep in, trying to find a good neon yellow nail polish was near impossible. And yet, when dashing through the shopping centre one day I caught a glimpse of this in a little 'stall' sort of thing (yes, it was like a magpie moment). I'd never normally waste my money on cheap nail varnish as 99% of the time you can predict the pigmentation will be awful, however, me and this nail polish were fate! Although its hassle trying to make it look good, I love neon yellow nails too much to neglect it.
