Essie Nail Polish

Essie Nail Polish is so targeted to the summer that the brand even as a slogan about keeping ‘haute in the heat.’

We love Essie because of the range of beauty possibilities you have.  The hottest range is the Essie Neon Polish collection, while the Summer 2014 range has been produced specifically with easy application in mind.  Best of all, the colours match everything that should already be in your wardrobe and accessories collection, so getting Essie in your handbag should just be yet another layer to your summer style supremacy!”

Summer Fragrances

“Cynical fashionistas may well think that summer fragrances are just another way for the Calvin Klein’s and Chanel’s of this world to take some extra pennies from our earnings. However, there is no mistaking that the typically light and zesty scents of the summer are refreshing and feel a lot less empowering that wintery or night time fragrances. As it happens, the two brands we’ve mentioned are our favourites for summer scents, but you’ll find various summer versions of popular fragrances at stores across the land. Find a fragrance as light and refreshing as the summer (and you) deserve!”

Gradual Tan Moisturiser

“This is an essential summer cosmetic hack – especially if you want to achieve a healthy glow but aren’t planning to head abroad on holiday this year. All you need to do is replace your existing moisturiser for the summer, though we recommend sticking with a great brand that includes an SPF so you avoid exposing your skin to the strongest UV rays of the summer too much. We must confess that there are far too many gradual tan moisturisers out there for us to possibly begin to choose our favourite, but you can check out this handy rundown from All About You for an idea of the best products and where to buy them.”
