Must-Have Nail Polish For Summer

This is my 20th post! It feels like 5 minutes ago since when I posted my very first update, wow! Today I went and bought some nail polishes that I think you need for Summer. They are gorgeous, you need to get them (or similar). There are 5 of them, 3 are from Rimmel London and the other 2 are Seventeen. Both of them were on offer in Boots, their price and colour name will be in their description below. There will also be something a little extra at the bottom for you guys ;)


This first one I love. It is Rimmel London, Rita Ora's collection. This particular colour is called Sweet Retreat (270). It looks amazing and had a brilliant finish. You can apply this to your nails quite easily since it has a wide brush. A useful tip that I have picked up is that before you apply the colour you have chosen, paint your nails with a thin layer of clear nail polish. This way you have a smoother surface to paint your nails on. 

I already have a purple nail polish, however, this one I feel is better. Again it is Rimmel London, Rita Ora's collection. The name of this is Go Wild-er-nees (558). In Boots, there is an offer on Rimmel London nail polish, they are normally £2.99 each but they were all on 3 for 2. So there is another Rimmel London polish below!

This next one is Rimmel London, 60 Seconds Super Shine. The name of this particular colour is Too Cool To Tango (855). I think that this colour would look great if you were going to the beach or going to the pool. I love this because it dries in 60 seconds. Another tip for applying nail polish: once you have done your first coat, wait for it to dry then do a second coat. Carry this on until you have done around four coats of polish. Once your nails are fully dry, use a clear nail polish to go over the top, repeat this again around three times.

Moving on to Seventeen. A single nail polish here would cost £3.99 but there was another offer in Boots, which let me have 2 nail polishes for £6. This one is Seventeen Gel Colour: Long Island...up to 8 days wear. It is a neutral grey and is quite a warm colour. It is a thin substance so you have to layer it on thick but it would more than likely go with any outfit or any make up.

I think this is like a green-blue colour. I like it anyway though. It is a darker colour, more for a fancy night out or something. Again, this is Seventeen Gel Colour: Mint BON BON...up to 8 days wear. Like the last, you have to apply this very thickly, but
not to many, since it is a darker colour. I think that I will be buying nail polishes from Seventeen again. I never really tried them until now. 

I am sorry if the layout this week is a bit weird, something is playing up, meaning no matter how many times I edit it, it just doesn't want to work, AT ALL! So, sorry for all of that :)
If you read my last update ( which I know most of you did ;) ) you will see that I am cutting out Facebook for 6 weeks. Every week, I am going to give you a little note on how I am doing. Okay, so I have missed Facebook but it gets easier, not to go on it everyday. I didn't think that I would be able to survive without it! Lots of my friends are saying 'You won't be able to do it. You're like, the Social Media Queen.' I want to prove them all wrong! A couple of my friends (boys) have said that they are going too spam me with messages do that when I go back, I am going to have well over 500 massages from them, (typical). I will inform you again how I am doing, next week.

This week I was sent a message by this group in Brighton., they are called The Watermelons. They messaged me a link to SoundCloud, the song that came up was called 'Bones', the first second that i heard it I was hooked. I love it! They also have another song that I found which is awesome too, that is called 'If you Want To Love Me'. This band is an Indie/Rock band, so if you like all of that stuff go and check them out and give them a follow!

That is all this week! Hope you enjoyed it and will go and have a go with those tips, products and listen to The Watermelons. If you have any recommendations contact me! Don't forget to follow me on Twitter, Instagram and Bloglovin'!

Until next week my lovelies! xx
