If you could only wear one nail varnish this summer what would it be?

Looking for inspiration. I want to buy decent varnish but not have loads of bottles hanging around with only a bit used then left to go manky!

I really like the mint green MUA one I got in Superdrug. Was only a £1 as well.

A nude shade. Apparently vv this season. And you don't have to have perfect nails or put it on perfectly either

I like orange for the summer.

JamEyelid Sun 21-Apr-13 20:55:33

Mint green Fiver - Butter London

Dior glow. Nails look natural but really healthy.

Essie not just a pretty face smile

Perfectly nude and very shiny and lasts ages !

YoniOno Sun 21-Apr-13 22:13:23

Essie Hip-anema because I love it, new season shade - the perfect bright summer shade and goes with winter woollies too <bitter>

I get the most compliments wearing the Barry M Blue Moon one which is a light minty/duck egg blue and looks good in the summer. Otherwise I like one of the orangey red sort of colours.

Elfontheedge, if you keep your nail polish in the fridge, they last for years.

polyhymnia Sun 21-Apr-13 23:27:44

An Essie Nude shade for sure.

OPI - Koala Beary

I'm very fond of YSL Beige Leger at the moment.

NellVarnish Sun 21-Apr-13 23:51:13

China Glaze For Audrey (a Tiffany blue) is my go to nail varnish but I've recently been swayed by Barry M's Gelly's

Supershiny and last for ages - and bargainous at 3.99 - greenberry and papaya are my favourites so far.

3 for 2 in Superdrug at the mo, would've been rude not to buy them. grin

Dior Charnelle

Perfect summer colour

Leighton Denny in orange, it needs 3 coats but looks the business.

I got it free off harpers and queen last year.

Fluffycloudland77 Mon 22-Apr-13 08:04:18

It's called do me a flavour.

HandsofaCrone Mon 22-Apr-13 08:42:26

Oh lots of these colours are tempting me now! I wish nudes didn't give me zombie hands.

Ujjayi Mon 22-Apr-13 08:48:20

Essie Madison Ave Hue (i think...some pun on the famous NY street wink ). It's a mid-pink but vibrant. Perfect with or without a tan.

Also L'Oreal Tangerine.
