So, since I spend the majority of my time indoors, I have lots of spare time that I spend with watching Youtube videos. And this is where the idea of this post came from. It's a tag on the video sharing site, the summer favourites.
I only write about nail polishes in this post, because I purchased a fair few ones this past weeks, and I enjoyed wearing them.
This summer I chose intense colours, as I wear basic clothes mostly, for example, a pair of shorts with a plain tank top, and a pair of loafers. I am not a huge jewellery fan either, so I try to make my outfits a bit more interesting by using violent colours on my nails.
Favourite summer nail polishes:
I used this colour a lot in late spring, early summer and as you can see it's almost empty now. It's a beautiful shade of coral, a mixture of orange and pink. I wore this almost every day, and used it for water marbling as well. It's a mini bottle, and the price was reasonable, tho' I don't remember how much was this. The only disadvantage is that it chips very quickly.
If you live in the East or Middle East Europe it's easy for you to find these brands. In Hungary the CATRICE ones can be purchased in every Rossmann, and the ADEN one in different stores where they are sold at very low prices, or at underpasses.
I really wanted an orange nail varnish but firstly I wasn't brave enough to wear a neon one, so I chose a darker one, but everyone said it was red. When I bought the darker orange, I also picked up the blue one and I'm still in love with that colour. It's simply beautiful. They don't chip very quickly, especially if you wear a base coat underneath the first coat. Plus, it's got a huge brush so it's very easy to work with.
The neon orange is the another one I really love. It's also long lasting, but sometimes, I found it difficult to work with, because the polish has a tiny, round shaped brush.

My favourite nail polish:
Manhattan colour meets fashion nail polish
I don't know how to describe this colour but it's beautiful, maybe a shade of brown and beige, it has teeny tiny golden glitters in it and gives a beautiful shine to your nails. Perfect for autumn.
The worst nail varnish I've ever tried:
Oriflame Pearly Beige
The joy of ordering beauty products. In the catalogue it looked like a gorgeous champagne colour (that I've been obsessed with recently). My jaw dropped when I saw it for the first time. It looks nothing like the one in the catalogue. It's a very light pink colour with golden shimmers in it. Like I said, it doesn't even similar to the one that I'd expected, and it would not be a problem BUT it's useless. Literally. The brush is tiny and it leaves the nail streaky even if you use a good amount of polish. Don't buy it.
