Gorgeous Summer Nail Shades: A Cocktail of Coral…

Coral Nail Polish

From hot sassy pinks to punchy peach corals, there’s nothing that says ‘summer jolly hols’ more than a wash of vibrant girly shades to paint your claws with. Stepping out of spring and into summer colours seems such a naturally fun transition from pastels to bright eye catching shades but if a cocktail of corals sounds like your kinda nail flair then check out these stunning shades for the sunshine. Best of all they’re all under £5! *woo hoo*

A Finishing Touch of Sparkle…

Crush On You 3d Texture Miss Sporty

If (like me) you’re partial to a sprinkling of subtle bling then why not consider a glittering top coat! I recently picked up this cute little Crush On You polish in Pink Bloom 65 from Miss Sporty for only £2.99. It gives the nails a subtle hint of glistening pink sunset with the teeny blush & gold sparkle. It also makes your polish that little bit more durable… and extra sassy if you ask me 😉




Are you a fan of hot pinks and bright corals? What’s your favourite shade to wear in the summer months?  Whatever your thoughts I’d love to read them in the comments below so do stop by for a chatter! Wishing y’all a fabulous weekend 🙂

Cheerio chums…

    • I’m the same Mecia, though I love seeing the pink on others – but Coral is definitely my vice, as long as it’s not too orangey if that makes sense lol Isn’t the glitter fab? Just warms it up, love it 😀 XXXX

    • Hello lovely!! I don’t wear these colours either but I find in an odd way it goes. Last night I was wearing navy (I tend to love dark colours) and it actually goes really well. Though I must confess I never tend to match my nails to what I’m wearing lol xxxx


      • Hi Karen,

        I love your inspiring posts and I am always super happy to see when you upload a new post.

        I am not too sure if you have received my emails but I emailed you twice about your ‘behind the blog’ series which I love following. I filled out your form but for some reason I am not sure if you have received it. In case you were still looking for blogs to feature on your site, I would be delighted to be part of it. 🙂

        Have a lovely start into the week.

        and made sure to fill out the form you have provided there.

        I would love to partner up with you as I really love your blog and it was one of the first I came across when I started my blog (about 1 month ago).

      • Hmmm, very peculiar!!! 😦 Again so sorry huni that it hasn’t worked! I think the best way to go forward is if you email the address that’s on the contact page (avoid the form) and then I can reply with all the info for you! We could try that and see if it works? Would be lovely to feature you so give me a shout once you’ve dropped me a line and I’ll know to look out for it incase it’s lingering about the junk box *sigh* XXXXXXXX
