Top-Ten Tuesdays ~ Nail Polish Shades for Spring/ Summer 2011

This season be ready to paint the town in purples, oranges and deep berry hues as these will be the hottest colours to wear on your nails along with acid brights in the summer that pay tribute to the 80's. Enjoy this season's top nail polish colours from my stash inspired by the O.P.I. Texas Collection and China Glaze Anchors Away Collection for Spring/Summer 2011 :)

10. Nude taupe-y colours will be making a come-back this season. I really liked this trend as it deviates away from the traditional pink nudes we are used to.  My recommendations are elf Desert Haze and for those who do not want to embrace these colours yet and remain faithful to good old nude pink, L'Oreal Resist & Shine Titanium in shade 100 is your best bet.

9. Deep berry shades will also continue to be popular during the coming season so make sure you have a bottle or two in your stash.  My favourite is a nail polish by Eugene Perma (hair colour brand) which is a deep plum shade with a hint of dark red.  Elf Rosy Raisin is also a gorgeous colour for those who favour a more rosy shade.

8. Speaking of deep berry tones, red as always will be a very popular colour to sport on your nails. My choices are elf Cranberry and Velvet for Spring and then a brighter red such as Max Factor nailfinity Red Passion would suit brighter summer days perfectly.

7. Moving on to an even more summery interpretation of reds, coral will be big this year as well.  I favour BYS Coral Sea and another shade from Eugene Perma (a lighter coral).

6. Shocking pink is the perfect colour for girly nails in the coming season.  A vast array of choices is offered here and I am settling on yet another Eugene Perma pink shade as well as Shocker from Rimmel 60 Seconds for that added shimmer.

5. Purple is the IT colour of the moment ranging from neon variations to more sophisticated darker shades.  My choices are BYS Ultraviolet and Rimmel 60 Seconds Pompous for the daring whilst elf Lilac suits light-hearted types more.

4. Pastel shades are always big come spring and I really like elf Mint Cream, Desert Haze and Lilac best. They give a sophisticated feel instantly!

3. Aqua tones reminiscent of the ocean and clear blue seas are also favourites with me when it comes to SS nail colours.  This year I will opt for Inglot shade 309 and BYS Aqua Pool.

2. Neons will be the perfect way to pay tribute to the 80's this year and nails are no exception.  Try BYS Ultraviolet, Coral Sea and Lime Spritz to get your fix. 

1. Pearl whites, golds and grey will also persist this season and I recommend Rimmel 60 Seconds Silver Bullet, Golden Rose Paris Collection no. 41 and essence colour & go Movie Star.
