I’m not sure how it happened but blue nails has become my ‘thing’. Blue has always been my favourite colour in a preppy, navy and denim kind of way but electric blue nails look so good with a tan and I get so many compliments on it. It’s a nice alternative to all the corals out there during the summer months (I always like going against the grain). So when Topshop beauty mentioned that they had brought out a range of blue hue nail colours to match their denim, I thought I’d do a round-up of my favourite blues (and a few ideas on what to wear with them:
|Mules: £128, All Saints. Nail polish: ‘Mom’, £6, Topshop|
Topshop nail polishes really are good quality, they glide on so nicely and they have, in my opinion, the best colours. Plus at £6 they’re a great cheap thrill and make great gifts/ stocking fillers.

The nail polish that started it all: Mavala ‘Cobalt Blue’ is one of my all-time favourites. I found it whilst searching for an affordable YSL ‘Marjorelle Blue’ and it is such a good colour.
I also love ‘Beach Please’ from Cheeky (Cowshed’s cheekier sister brand), their nail parlours are a great place to go for a girly afternoon and their colours are bright, poppy and great fun.

I’ve been wearing this navy colour on my fingernails loads lately, it looks so good with jeans an a nice alternative to black.
