NOTD - Summer Shimmer

I am a sucker for anything in green or blue shades. Particularly nail varnish so this simple look has my gazing at my nails during the day -it's quite distracting!

I bought the Models' Own nail varnish Indian Ocean after reading a blog about it and falling in love with the almost opalescent appearance that it gives to any nail varnish that you layer it over.
It looks blue in the bottle but I've tried it over all kids of pastel shades and love it over everything (next I should try it over dark colours... but I feel far too summery at the moment!)

Indian Ocean, Peppermint

This is my current favourite combination; a pretty mint green (here I used Rimmel London Lycra PRO in Peppermint) and just one layer of Indian Ocean.
I also use OPI Nail Envy as a base coat because I suffer from terrible flaky nails.

I think I'll be wearing this a lot this summer, it's just too pretty!

What are your go to summer shades?


  1. These are so pretty! I have one that is very similar from Dior! These look gorgeous! Also, how do I follow you hun? I can't find the follow button heehee!

  2. I just ordered Mint Candy Apple by Essie as well... I'm such a sucker for mint shades!
    I "think" that I've managed to add a button now. Haha! Sorry :)
    I hope that it's okay now
