Amp Your Tan with Tan Maximising Nail Lacquers!

Ever notice how bright nail polishes make your skin look a shade (or two) darker?

You can use this tactic to your advantage in the summer to give your tan a boost. Here are my picks for tan maximising shades that are still quite wearable and not to mention girly. Perfect for the warm season!

Essie Boom Boom Boom, Rimmel Sherbet Sweetheart on Rimmel White Hot Love, Revlon Apricot Nectar, Topshop Flamingo Coral, 2True 25

Nail Shades from little finger to thumb:

1.) Essie Boom Boom Boom Nail Lacquer. A bright bub pink on the verge of neon.
2.) Rimmel Sweetie Crush in Sherbet Sweetheart on Rimmel Rita Ora White Hot Love. White Hot Love makes a wonderful white base for sheer bright colours and that's what I've done in this combo. Think like NYX Milk Jumbo Eye Pencil but for nails.
3.) Revlon Parfumerie in Apricot Nectar. A scented true coral that smells absolutely delicious!
4.) Topshop Flamingo Coral. A bright pinky peach in the ultra-easy to use Topshop formula.
5.) 2True Fast Dry Nail Polish in Shade 25. A bright hot neon. Easy to apply and dries quickly. A good cheap one for on the go.

    I always love how a nail polish makes me look slightly more tan, my favourite of these is the Essie Boom Boom Boom, such a beautiful pink, im currently wearing Essie Fiji and it looks like I have a darker tan :)

  2. I love the Revlon and Topshop colors on you.. just got a similar thing from Max Factor the other day. I really like solid whites for a tan too!

  3. so cute.


  4. I'm having trouble finding white polishes that are easy to use as most of them run streaky, do you have any recommendations?

  5. Oooh thanks for the recommendation! I'll check out Fiji at my local Boots... Boom x 3 is so beautiful I can't keep my eyes off it when I see it!
