• I bought this from the Barry M Summer Limited Edition back in June and it has been one of my favourite summer nail colours and it's very different than what I usually go for. I always look forward to summer limited editions coming out each year as they are always gorgeous bright summery colours :)

    Bikini is the Boots exclusive (along with Carousel. Promenade and Seaside are the Superdrug exclusives). It is a lovely blue shade with a purple undertone. It has a beautiful formula, as do all of the Barry M varnishes. I used 2 coats over a clear undercoat (to stop the colour staining my nails).

    My nails have for some reason all ended up snapping (I usually have nice long nails). I think this colour looks great though even on short nails. I usually wouldn't bother with brighter nail polishes until my nails grow a bit more, but I really like this one. I do as always though prefer the Barry M Gelly Hi Shines for the finish they give, as they look so much more glossy compared.

    What has been your favourite nail varnish this summer?
