Although it is late summer here in the States, we still have a full month left of the real heat! So why not share my top summer nail polishes that are super affordable and available in a variety of drugstore or high-end shades if my picks are no longer available.


The shades:

Egg yolk Orange – This shade flatters all skin tones and really draws attention to your nails. The bright orange is such a summer shade and can be easily pulled off. My polish is by wet n wild in their Wild Shine line in 405. The Wild Shine line ranges from 95c to $1.05 depending on where you buy it and is super rich when applied. No streaks and a one coat needed application. This is also my favorite line of nail polishes since they last a crazy long time on your nails even when working really hard day in and day out.

Any shade of White – Why white you ask? Well because it looks chic and with a variety of variants out there for shades anyone can pull this look off. The polish I have is Rimmel’s 60 Seconds polish in 703 White Hot Love. This particular shade is off white so it flatters my olive skin tone. This line ranges from 98c to $1.20 depending on where you buy. Because white is a tough shade for your nails usually you will need multiple coats. For this brand I find that 3 coats usually does it. The lasting power is also there for such a cheap nail polish.

Since I was a wee baby I have suffered from constantly chapped lips. As I aged this annoying occurrence turned into an actual dilemma, the fact that I have to be very conscious on what kind of lipstick I would wear that day. No one wants to put on a lipstick and find that it reached every crevice, showing every piece of dry lip that there is on your beautiful face. To counteract this problem I went on the search for lipsticks that are moisturizing and glide on like a charm. So for today I have picked four drugstore lipsticks and two high end, just for those who might want some comparisons.
