This summer there are some great nail shades that will, no doubt, brighten up your wardrobe. Although I love strong colours like a timeless cherry red, a strong coral shade or Chanel’s classic Rouge Noir, I must admit that this season I have fallen for the pastel shades, which, of course, are the perfect finishing touch to the Candy Colours fashion trend – as seen at the SS12 catwalk shows of Prada and Louis Vuitton, amongst others.
There is a new range from Miners Cosmetics that includes a pale pink (Marshmallow) and a soft lemon yellow colour (Sunny Side Up), that are irresistible. I tried Marshmallow and found that the texture of the lacquer was nice and thick, and although I needed two coats, the colour was easy to apply evenly. The finish was shiny, but I always like to add a clear top coat for that extra gloss and protection. They are very reasonably priced too, at £2.99 each, so if you can’t decide between colours you can always invest in the whole collection!
