It seems that all of us, living in the UK, are learning to take lack of sunshine this summer in our stride, often greeting each other with ‘don’t you just love this wonderful weather’ and a smile ? As we can’t change or control the weather, we might as well try to bring cheer in our lives, in my case it starts with the colour of my nail polish.
Dolce & Gabbana have created a wonderful make-up line and their nail lacquers boast not only the beautiful color palette, but very stylish packaging as well, combining the clear glass bottle, filled with intense nail laquer, with a striking golden top. My color choice for this summer? The shade called ‘lemon‘ which remind me of Sicilian lemons and gives my nails and my mood a very welcome visual boost ( as this polish gives a matt finish, you can put a gloss coat on top, if you want a shinier finish ).
If you fancy yourself more of an ‘orange is my colour’ type of girl, try Becca‘s aptly names ‘summerdaze‘ which is a subtle pinky/orange colour. I also love the fact that this brand’s nail polishes last well, even if you wash the dishes or a doing manual things, like gardening ( do wear gardening gloves though !). As an additional bonus Becca’s nail colours are formaldehyde, toluene, camphor and DBP free, so you don’ have too worry excessively about its effect on your nails ( do let your nails rest from time to time and nurture them with appropriate nail treatments ).
