If you're a follower of Polish or Perish, you'll know that we've been
sharing swatches of our favourite shades in 5 "must-have" categories.
All the other PoP ladies are in the northern hemisphere, where summer's
just started, so the categories are very summer-themed. Starting later this week I'll be posting my winter favourites, but for now, here were
my summer choices:
Red - Red is the black of the nail world. Sophisticated or sexy, everyday or special occasion, red really does it all! My pick for summer is ulta3 English Rose, a delicious bright red jelly full of gold microglitter.
Glitter - Everyone's favourite fashionable bling! It doesn't seem to be going old, does it? I picked a relatively muted charcoal glitter with little holo particles, China Glaze Some Like It Haute.
Nude - When bare skin comes out from under winter wraps, pretty nude nails feel like the perfect complement. My favourite is OPI Malaysian Mist, a yellow-toned peach - read all about my Good-Nude-Hunting saga here.
Holo - There's nothing like seeing rainbows on a linear holo dancing in full sun! I picked the only holo I have a sunny swatch of - salmony China Glaze TMI.
Neon - The quintessential summer polish would have to be a neon. Neon just makes you think of bikinis on a beach, sipping on a fruity cocktail covered in tacky umbrellas. My pick is... every coral I own :P Here are 4 of them (L to R): Max Factor Diva Coral, Hello Kitty Kawai Coral, ulta3 Sunset Coral, and Kim Miami Coral. My favourite is Sunset Coral.
What would your 5 picks be? And what polish categories would be essential in your winter mani collection?
