Summer Nails from the Stars

So followed by my hot for summer post yesterday, I thought I would make a post about what celebrities are wearing on their nails this summer. This was inspired by a Lou Lou magazine article that I read. All images credited to LouLou Magazine.

I love this girl, Whitney Port, star of "The City" is caught out wearing pastel purple. The mag suggests to mix white polish with your favourite purple polish to get this hot shade for summer. And some shades that they recommend include Essie Lilacism, and Gosh Wild Lilac. Also notice how she is wearing a boyfriend jacket with that pointy shoulders and a nautical inspired striped shirt. Those sunglasses however are a bit Mickey Mouse.
 Hilary Duff wearing yellow. Yellows can be a b!tch to apply, so make sure you use a good basecoat and apply smooth strokes. Recommended colours include Sally Hansen Yellow Kitty.

Peaches Geldoff wearing light blue. Not the most flattering picture of her, looks like she's eating. Suggestions include Sephora by OPI Curacoa, and OPI What's up with the catittude, Joe Fresh Powder Blue (gotta get that one). 

Jessica Alba in teal blue. This is a colour that I have really started to take a liking to, it's so summery.  Try out American Apparel Peacock (love that one).

Agyness Deyn wearing coral and peach colours. Colours like MAC's Scrocher and Revlon Make Mine Mango.

Which celebrity look do you like the best?

I love the look but don't think I could ever pull off yellow. I've been eyeing the Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Blue Me Away, nice to see it's on trend! I'm not talented enough to make it a manicure shade but I see yet another pedicure polish change in my future! I love your blog, it is my FAVORITE!
