Although the British weather can be a bit hit and miss, summer is literally just around the corner. We’ve had little pockets of good weather but with holiday and festival season upon us, I’m hoping the sunshine will be making an extended stay. And one of the best things about summer (apart from the warm weather, BBQ’s and flip flops of course) is the chance to dig out some brighter polishes and add some summer shades to our nails.
And one of my favourite summer nail polish collections at the moment is the Orly Pacific Coast Highway Collection. As a brand I really love Orly and their polishes. The formula lasts on my nails for a good five days before chipping and they have a great shade selection. And speaking of colours, here are the six shades from the Pacific Coast Highway Collection:
Orly Pacific Coast Highway Collection- Road Trippin
If you love neon yellow – this is the polish for you! This neon yellow crème is seriously bright but a really fun colour for summer. I found the formula a little thin on this one but the results are fab.
Orly Pacific Coast Highway Collection – Summer Sunset
This is a lovely yellow orange shimmer that is nothing like anything else in my polish collection. You only need two coats of this polish to get the same colour in the bottle.
Orly Pacific Coast Highway Collection – Put the Top Down
Again, if you love neons then you’ll love this polish. This neon pink crème polish is another great summer colour. And although the formula was a little tricky to apply, I found two thin coats work best to get that bright pink shade.
Orly Pacific Coast Highway Collection-Scenic Route
This is a gorgeous muted purple crème finish. I love the fresh lavender shade and I just know this is going to become one of my summer staples.
Orly Pacific Coast Highway Collection – Life’s a Beach
This is the final neon in the collection. It’s a neon red-orange crème that is another great colour to wear on your nails or toes in the sunshine.
Orly Pacific Coast Highway Collection – Paradise Cove
This is a gorgeous red toned purple polish with a very subtle hint of shimmer. Like Put The Top Down I found two thin coats were all I needed to achieve the gorgeous purple shade.
The Orly Pacific Coast Highway Nail Polishes are £10.15 and are available at Graftons Beauty
